Christ is the image of the invisible God, and by Christ were all things created. (Col 1:15-16)
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)
Why did God the Father create everything through Christ His Son? Why does God have a Son? Why do we need to go through the Son to reach the Father? The answers to these questions are at the heart of the science of salvation.
If we can understand the relationship of God to His only Begotten Son, and Their relationship to the rest of the universe, we have a key to understanding creation itself and everything in it. For everything was created in this pattern of the Father-Son, and in this relationship is the loving pattern for all relationships.
