Why do you deny the
eternal sonship of Jesus Christ?

Because Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the Godman that did not exist as such until His incarnation in the womb of the virgin (Luke 1:30-35). The central doctrine of the New Testament is that Jesus is the Son of God (Matt 16:13-18; Acts 8:37; I John 5:4-5). The question must be asked, when did Jesus Christ of Nazareth come into existence? We maintain that Jesus of Nazareth came into existence at His conception in Mary. While His divine nature, the Word of God, was eternal God, Jehovah Himself, His human nature had a very definite beginning in the fullness of time and was made by a woman (Gal 4:4).

The language and doctrine of Origen’s eternal generation of the Son of God are pagan and anti-Christian heresies. We have no use for them or any council such as Nicea or any church such as Rome or Baptists that adopt either. We totally reject Origen’s “begotten god” in John 1:18 (see the NASB) and his “a god” in John 1:1 (see the NWT). We believe Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the Son of God – fully God and fully man – but not eternally generated in any sense.
