Question: First, I would like to thank you all for answering my other questions. I have a few more if you do not mind. What does 'Begotten Father' means? I know the Bible speaks on homosexuality and many say it is a sin and many say others' take it out of context. So, without any person feelings towards homosexuality is Romans 1:26 speaking against it because some say that it is okay if two homosexuals are married and committed but only a sin if they are having sex with others and not married.? Next what does John 1:18 mean? No one has ever seen God; the only God,[a] who is at the Father's side,[b] he has made him known.' Lastly, what does Standing on the Right Hand of God mean? Jesus is God, what does it mean to stand on the right hand side? Thank you for your time and patience!

Answer: We are not familiar with the term 'begotten father.' Perhaps you could supply a Scripture reference.

All sexual immorality is sin. This means that to engage in any kind of sexual act or to lust after anyone who is not your lawful spouse is a sin. The Bible recognizes only the union of a man and a woman as a marriage.

We are not familiar with the translation you have offered for John 1:18. The central meaning of this passage is that as the eternal Spirit, God is invisible. No one has seen Him. But by coming in the flesh as the man Jesus Christ, He has made Himself visible.

As for the phrase 'standing on the right hand of God,' please read our article called 'Questions and Answers About the Oneness of God.' It can be found on Shelf 1 of the Apostolic Free Library on this website.
