1 John 5:1 (KJV)
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
The contest of the spiritual world revolves around Jesus Christ.
- His person
- His presence and
- His passion
are become the fulcrum over which faith becomes a broken religion or an elevating devotion. Here is the dividing line between those who say they love God and those whom God says love Him. If you love God you will in turn love the one who is begotten of Him; Jesus Christ.
By using the concept of the begotten here, the Apostle points us to the incarnation. This is that breaking point for so many religions
- The Catholics venerate Mary almost more than Christ
- The Mormons and JW’s make Christ less than God with us
- The Muslims reject that Christ was more than a great prophet
- The eastern religions are ignorant of Christ
- The atheists deny Christ
- The worldly ignore Christ
To love God is to love Christ. To love Christ is to not merely believe in His existence but to embrace His every teaching.
