I AM AN avid reader of your magazine I get my
copies from neighbors who are members of your Church, .However, I
disagree with your teaching that Christ is man. How can this be
true, when Christ is not a product or result of the fertilization of
Las Pinas, Philippines
If we accept the belief
that Christ is not man because he “is not a product or result of the
fertilization of the egg cell,” then we also have to accept that
Adam and Eve are not human beings because they are likewise not the
outcome of this biological process.
The Bible, which is the word of God,
states four ways of creation. The first man was created out of dust
(cf. Gen. 2:7); the first woman, out of the flesh of the first man
(cf. Gen. 2:21-23).
The Lord Jesus was created by God
through the Holy Spirit (cf. Mt. -24).
We were created by God through the union
of man and woman. We should note, however, that it was still God who
formed us in our mother’s womb (cf. Is. 44:2).
Although our Lord Jesus Christ was born
out of extraordinary circumstances, the truth remains that He is a
man-a fact attested to by Christ Himself, and which His apostles
taught (cf. Jn. 8:40; Mt. 1:20; Acts 2:22; I Tim. 2:5).
Suggestion: If you have further questions, please feel free
to visit the Iglesia ni Cristo congregation nearest you. A minister or
an evangelical worker would be happy to answer any biblical question
you have in mind.
