Not sure how you see it, but I can trace my lineage back to God, too. I was with God before I was born and before the begining...as was everythign in the cosmos. If one investigates "Logos" in the Greek philophical sense, it means exactly that.<quoted text>Good evening G... like when the Wright Brothers built their little, flying machine. When they began the project... did they begin to exist when they began building the plane? No of course not... they existed long before they created it and were into other things.
In the same way, Genesis is our beginning but God existed from eternity long before He created our earth, region of space or whatever. So anyways, Genesis speaks of our beginning and creation point within all of eternity.
John 1:1 thru verse 2... and some parts of this chapter when put into context with the first two verses... alludes to The Son of God as having a pre-existence. Jesus even mentions it in a prayer to His Father:
Jesus: "And now, Father, glorify Me in Your presence with the glory I had WITH YOU before the world began."
Now I meant that scripture to point out Jesus talking of His pre-existence but on another note... even a child can understand what "with you" means.
There is nothing that Jesus did or said that can not be claimed any person, including domething he never said... being a god.
"I said you are all gods." Pslam 81
Perhaps another thing I find 'erroneous'(IMHO) about Christianity is that it degrades mankind to less than an animal, refusing to accept the divine that is alive (or dormant) within every living creature and esp.(if not more so) in man.
That man 'sins' is proof of his divinity AND proof that man has not the wisdom to control that divinity on his own. IMHO Jesus was teaching how to use that divine nature for good instead of self destruction (personal and communal).
