Dear Kevin:

I think it would help people a lot if they could understand that "God" is not the personal first name of Jesus' Father.  Jesus' Father IS GOD. That is, He is the One and only Supreme Diety of the Universe. It is His power, and glory, and knowledge, and wildom, and love that makes Him God. But God has a Son. He came out of the Father just as any child comes out of his father (John 16:28; John 8:42; etc.).
