Jesus Christ is our lord God and Savior.
There is no other God besides God.

In 1 Timothy 6, Paul is wrapping up his letter to Timothy, telling him to fight the good fight and keep his profession of faith. He tells Timothy that he’s to do this “until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,” whom he subsequently refers to as “the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see.

To Him be honor and eternal dominion.” The title is used to indicate someone who has the power to exercise absolute dominion over all His realm. In the case of the Lord Jesus, the realm is all of creation.
Paul labors to emphasize the solitary nature of Christ’s rule, calling Him the “only” Sovereign, who is “alone” and “unapproachable.” The rule of Jesus is unique and above that of all other rulers.

The other two uses of the phrase, those in Revelation, refer to the final conquest and return of Jesus. The implication is that in the end all other rules will be conquered or abolished, and He alone will reign supreme as King and Lord of all creation and creatures. There is no power, no king, and no lord who can oppose Him and win.

There are myriad references to this absolute rule of Jesus, and His preeminence over other rulers, all throughout Scripture, some subtle, some overt. To mention just a few, Isaiah 40:23-24 says that the Lord brings “princes to nothing” and makes earth’s rulers “emptiness.”

The mere breath of the Lord will “carry them off like stubble.” Daniel’s vision of the son of man in Daniel 7:13-14 is of one whom he calls “the Ancient of Days” whose everlasting dominion is over all people, nations and languages.

In the New Testament, we get a better view of whom these passages refer to when the writer of Hebrews speaks of the Lord Jesus:“He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of His nature, and He upholds the universe by the word of His power”(Hebrews 1:3). The next verse speaks of Jesus being “much superior” to the angels. Clearly, His rule over creation is absolute.

Paul makes the point that this rule is derived from Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. In Philippians 2:5-11, he discusses the extent to which Jesus went to atone for sinners and concludes that this is the reason that “God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”(vv. 9-11).

It's wonderful to see the further Islamification of the US to purify it from disease and corruption which is everywhere being spread by Christians.
This is an example of Catholic upbringing:

Liar!
Your pants are on fire Muslim.
All Muslims need to lie about Muhammad's religion of Islam.
Those men have the conscience of Muhammad the Muslim prophet.
Muhammad had no moral conscience, and those men do not have a moral conscience.
So those men are like Muslims.

Why don't muslims convert parrots. They are ideal for Islam. Teach them the Koran and they will recite it to the end of their lives.

They ought to be taught to think for themselves, instead of the dogma they portray. There was a reason they were run out of Spain.

I wonder which country will be the first to run these roaches out this century? They are universally despised, for good reason.

Amen Proud American! I don't know what it's gonna take for not only Americans but the rest of the worlds people to figure out that the Muslim agenda is world domination! Unfortunately us here in America are really screwed because we allowed a freekin Muslim to become president of our own nation when we elected Obummer into office! I'm not a white supremacy follower by any means and I'm not a cousin fucker inbreed redneck either but I love my country and I miss the union and bond "We the People" used to have as a country. Instead of transparency and no racial seperation our current prez has hidden and locked up everything and caused more racial tension then ever! WAKE UP AMERICANS, WE ARE UNDER ATTACK AND IF WE DON'T STAND UP, IT'S GONNA BITE US IN THE ASS AND DISTROY US!!!!
