All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
This is what I do. I quote scripture and some folk get upset about what it says. So I make them face the scripture until they run away or accept it. You were in the running away stage but appear to be struggling with this scripture, so you haven’t completely wrote it off. God endowed you and all men with enough to understand that it is saying that Jesus was born the messiah. You cannot struggle forever Nick because you will get very tired. You will either deny the scripture outright or believe it. Which is it? So far I have seen more denial and tricky wordings to get around this truth. Do you accept the scripture now?
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
It says he was born as the messiah, the saviour, and the Lord. Right?
