Q: Was Jesus Christ—the Son of God who became a man—God, man, or both?

Q: Was Jesus Christ—the Son of God who became a man—God, man, or both?

A: Because the first man sinned, all his descendants would be cut off from God for eternity. We needed a man, but a perfect man, to pay the penalty for sin, which is death. But none of us could do this, since we’re all sinners. This is why the Creator, Jesus Christ, became a man. Thus He was God and man—two natures, BUT one person. As a perfect man—the God-man— He could die for our sin. And He offers salvation to each one of us absolutely free!

Have you ever thought about the fact that when Jesus became a man, He actually became one of our relatives! The reason Jesus could die for the sins of mankind is because we’re all related—we’re all descendants of the first two people.

Christians who insist they can believe evolution have to face the fact that, in essence, they’re saying that Jesus became a descendant of an ape-like creature! This would destroy the message of the Gospel! We had to have a perfect relative to pay the penalty for our sin of rebellion.

Are you asking for our views on this or just making a statement? I am kind of curious as to how people think about this one.

Yep. And this doesn't pose a problem for me.
