It does say God the Father in the bible but it never says the image was God in says the God the father dwell in the image the image is not God there for God the son is a lie from the trinity doctrine. If God wanted us to use the term God the son you would find the term in the bible but nowhere in the bible is the term used. Jesus is the Son Of God not God the son. you can show me a hundred it say this says and that say so it means this but that is all hog wash if the bible does not say it.
I know what I'll I do dem? The next time I meet the editors of the various Bibles for lunch I will tell them my friend "dem" is unsatisfied with your work because you have left out key words in the Bible?
Did you know that certain "characteristics" go with the subject of a person? What do I mean? The Jews have what is called "Idioms." In fact, all languages have "Idioms." What's and Idiom? A group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words.
One of those idioms the Jews have is what is known as the "son of" idiom. For example in the OT we see idioms like the "Son of valor" at 1 Samuel 14:52 which simply means a brave man. How about the "Son of murder at 2 Kings 6:32 denotes a murderer. And here's a common one, Sons of the prophets" denots sons that are prophets.
In the NT we have at Luke 10:6, "Son of peace" which refers to a peaceful person. Guess who was the "Son of perdition at john 17:12 and 2 Thess 2:3? This idiom is the "lost one." I'll give you his initials as a hint, JI.
What about Jesus referring to Himself on numerous occasions as the "Son of Man" and as the "Son of God." This particular expression clearly eshibits the use of the word "son" to show the possession of a certain naute. Number 23:19 you can read for yourself, you know where it starts out, "God is not a man." So in like manner the "Son of God" idiom when applied to Jesus Christ, means possessing the nature of, displaying the qualities or characteristics of God.
So when Jesus referred to Himself as the "Son of Man" He was talking about having a human nature on His mother Mary's side because she's a human being by nature. When Jesus referred to Himself as the "Son of God" He was talking about having the same nature as His Father which would be Deity. Jesus Christ is the one and only person that has two natures. One on His mother's side and one on His Fathers side.
Now dem, you can prove me wrong on this if you can give me an example (just one example) of a son that does not share the same nature as its father. This is a universal law. This is also why I can "Biblically" say "God the Son." Lastly, I suggest you learn something about that word you love to use, "image." Do a study on Hebrews 1:3. And don't come back and tell me the "lame" argument that "Well an image is not the same as the real person."
IN GOD THE SON,
