Sharonna ... No amount of VAC (verses absent context. Not too bad, eh? Just coined that meself) will diminish Christ's crystal-clear teachings that: He did what the Father told him to do, and said what he was told to say; the Father was greater than He; He prayed to his Father; depended on Him for strength; did not know when the end times would come (what, God does not know when God will end it all?); that he wanted his disciples to be one "just as You and I are one." Just as.

It is a noble effort to attempt to prove Christ was God and not the Son of God, but fruitless in the end. He taught otherwise.

RE:Twin Lights, John17:20-22. True,One in unity (*en 1722, Preposition).But (**heis,1520=the number 1) different Greek words. 3 persons one God. "one in substance”.E.g…, the express image of his person(substance,=G 5287)Hebrews 1:3.

The Father, the Word(I), and the Holy Spirit=(Ghost); and these three are )One (**heis) these three agree as one(*en) (1John 5:7,8 KJV & JST & 3 Nephi 11:36.)

An example would be the Sun. The one Sun shows itself as triune, sunlight and heat yet one substance or essence, as its splendid in its unity and oneness. How much more the Creator of the sun is splendid and One in his unity and oneness in his triune being.

“ If Christianity was something we were making up, of course we would make it easier. But it is not. We cannot compete, in simplicity, with people who are inventing religions. How could we? We are dealing with fact. Of course anyone can be simple if he has no facts to bother about." The 3 personal God “Mere Christianity.

I used the NET because you said it was a good translation. So is it also deficient? Where is the translation that says what you say it does?

The sun example is interesting but odd. The sun is the object. The other things simply emanate from it. I am a human. I produce heat. I am not heat.

With all deference to CS Lewis, I disagree. Christ made it pretty simple. He could have done so here as well.
