   Verse Questions:
        John 1:18
Is this saying that people view Jesus Christ that he was God?, but this says that no one has ever seen God even in body form when they thought he was God? so how can Christ be God? Besides about the trinity, it dosen't exist in the Bible, yes I know that the Father and Son are one like we are with Christ in the church, which is the body, and does that make us God as well, as one? I'm just curious how this works for you, not saying I don't understand it but I like your back up approach to this guys.

lets see...200 years after the bible times around...230s, a roman church(which i will not mention) decided that to stop all of the killing of protestants, they would combine the christian church with the heathen church. so to make this long story short, their father(nimrod), son(nimrodII) , holy spirit(evergreen tree), and goddess(mother of harlots) became the famoous father(god), son(jesus) and holy spirit(holy ghost) and not the mention mary as the me to learn more
jesus was god in flesh, and yes we did se him, but know what he told moses which was no one can see god "in his full glory" and live.

I believe this is saying that Christ was the only being in human form to have ever physically seen God his father so by declaring him, he was able to actually witness Gods existence. I hope that made sense!

I believe your response was excellent. The only thing i would add would be to comment on the numerous times Jesus equates himself with the Father. Specifically in [John 14:9] where Jesus responds to Philip's request to see the Father. Jesus states "Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father; so how can you say 'show us the Father'?"

From what I understand, this verse is saying that you couldn't have truly seen God until Jesus Christ Declared him. The whole purpose of Jesus was to let us see God. We could have never gone to heaven to be with god if Jesus didn't make us white as snow, or sinless in his eyes. That is why the old testament saints just went to a paradise instead of heaven when they died, because God can only be in the presence of perfect people, and Jesus hadn't covered their sins yet. If you read [John 1:1-14] this shows that Jesus and God the father are one. [Gen 1:1] "The Word was with God, and the Word was God." [Gen 1:14] "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us". As for the holy trinity, it does exist in the bible even though the word "trinity" isn't in the bible. A perfect example is [I John 5:7] "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three ARE ONE." As [John 1:14] says the Word is Jesus. Another example of Jesus being God is when a leper worships Jesus. [Matthew 8:2,3] Arn't you only supposed to worship God? Jesus doesn't say Stop, I don't deserve worship, only give your praise to the father. He accepts it and even blesses the leper for it.
I hope that this helps your question. If you have any questions about what I said, I would be happy to answer them for you.
