If we get the first verse wrong, we misunderstand the rest of the Bible, and the COGs have been maligned with this since the modern era of the COG. The WWPOG can understand this if they have any interest, or have the mentality for learning as a little child does. It all begins in Gen.1:1, not John 1:1. If you misunderstand Genesis, you can’t understand John. The unteachable Shining Light author screens out anyone who disagrees with him, so you never hear the rest of the story. Someone should ask him why, and have him publicly state his misunderstanding of The Most High God.
Shining Light Author James Malm writes below:
Mark Michelson allows that Jesus preexisted his human birth but insists that God the Father was exclusively the LORD of Hosts and that God the Father was exclusively YHVH. Both positions being absolutely wrong.
Mark is sugar coating the heresy with a semblance of truth by admitting the pre-existence of Christ. James Jesus did not preexist

Jesus Own words Mark 10:18
So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. Here Jesus separate’s himself from the one, “singular” not family God and here the old testament states Psalm 25:8
Good and upright is the Lord; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.

Clearly David knew that his God was the Father, for only He is good, as Jesus stated above. I can’t find a single verse in the old testament where Jesus is speaking to Israel or the forefathers. The father is the only God of both testaments and he is the only one who is truly God John 17;3 and His son Jesus was his only begotten son. The father had a son, because he didn’t have a son and his mother Mary bore this son for who? The Most High God.
