Matthew 6:9

9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11Give us this day our daily bread.
12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Matthew 6:9

  9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
  10Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
  11Give us this day our daily bread.
  12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
  13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
  14For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
  15But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

**********************

Some people have tried to tell me that Christ IS the Lord. However, I must observe that Jesus MADE the Lord's Prayer, and that it has the words "our father". NOT "your father". THAT means Jesus prayed to the LORD who SENT him. AND THAT, my friends, means Christ WASN'T the Lord, but rather somebody that the LORD sent to help us get salvation.

Furthermore, Christ said in Matthew 10:40, "He that receiveth you receiveth me, and HE THAT RECEIVETH ME RECEIVETH HIM THAT SENT ME." That further indicates that Christ and GOD are NOT the same thing, but rather that GOD SENT CHRIST.

THAT is why I specify that I pray to the LORD, the ALMIGHTY FATHER IN HEAVEN, the creator of Heaven and Earth, the God of Abraham, and Isaac, of Moses and of Joshua, and FATHER of Jesus Christ.

The first of the 10 commandments says don't pray to "other gods", and that is why I am so stubborn about it.

Even if Christ and God were the same thing, Satan has a reputation of pretending to be Jesus, and therefore, of the Holy Trinity, praying to the Heavenly FATHER, God the Almighty, and NOT to Jesus would secure a person from accepting a false Christ as their Lord.

It means I accept Christ as the savior, whom the LORD sent for the purpose of winning redemption, but I do not accept Christ as the LORD. I have too many questions about the relationship between the Father, Son and Holy Ghost to accept it any other way.

The best way to look at it is "If God and Christ are the same, then praying to God IS praying to Christ, but if they're NOT, then praying to GOD is making sure that you don't break the first commandment."
