Christians have always believed in the deity of Christ. John 1:1 is not vague. Ho logos=the Word was with God and was God. To repeat, only God can forgive sins and receive worship. Jesus did both. But what does any of this matter to you? Tell me, if Christ was God, would you believe in Him? No atheist here has ever acknowledged the least thread of any Christian belief! "Show us," they say. Evidence is presented and poo-pooed period.
