“If the Son were not God then He would not be praised in worship for His attribute of “power” (Revelation 5:12) just like the Father (Revelation 4:11).”

you assume that the authors would imagine god like you imagine him today. you assume that the author would have had a problem with worshipping a being which did not have inherent in him that commanding power which was inherent in the father . the guy is saying that the power is not inherent, the primary “daddy” is the father, he has the quality in him.

none of this is evidence that the son has the same commanding attribute/quality as the father in heaven.


Theological Dictionary of the New Testament (TDNT): In 5:12f. the angelic choirs extol the omnipotence of the Lamb in a seven-membered doxology (8:178, timē, J. Schneider, the underlined is mine).


there is no omnipotence. he clearly is dependant on another. you are just imaging like a pagan that the son has an INHERENT quality when even the pagan writers of the new testament didn’t imagine such.
