JESUS WAS NOT SON OF GOD

Jesus never explicitly said 'I am the son of God' in the complete bible.
some people quote the verse from the bible which says 'Like father like son'. Son of God should be like God. Does Jesus have the attributes of God?

What about John 3:16 which says : For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Other sons of God mentioned in the Bible

Adam - Luke 3:38 : Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.


Solomon - II Samuel 7:13,14 :-
Israel - Exodus 4:22 :- And you shall say unto pharoah, Thus said the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn


Angels - Job 1:6:- Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and satan came also among them.

2:1:- Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.

38:7 :- When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?


David - Psalms 2:7:- I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, You art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Jesus refused to be called son of God
