The New Encyclopædia Britannica mentions: “Christians who had some training in Greek philosophy began to feel the need to express their faith in its terms, both for their own intellectual satisfaction and in order to convert educated pagans.” For example, the Bible calls him the Son of God; the lovers of Greek philosophy insisted that he is God. The question was debated at a number of church councils. The issue could have been settled quite easily had the delegates given appropriate weight to the Scriptures, but most did not. In fact, the majority had made up their minds even before they arrived at the councils, and they left more deeply entrenched than ever in their positions. Scholar Charles Freeman mentions that those who believed that Jesus is God “found it difficult to refute the many sayings of Jesus that suggested he was subordinate to God the Father.” As a result, church tradition and opinions of later authorities were substituted for the Gospels. To this day, many of the clergy elevate the uninspired sayings of so-called Church Fathers to a plane higher than the Word of God! While church dignitaries found it difficult to determine the exact identity of Jesus Christ, many of the common people had no such problem. Since they were not interested in lining their purses with the emperor’s gold or in furthering their careers in the church hierarchy, they were able to view matters more objectively, in the light of the Scriptures. A theologian of the period, Gregory of Nyssa, made this derisive comment regarding the common people: “Clothes dealers, money changers, and grocers are all theologians. If you inquire about the value of your money, some philosopher explains wherein the Son differs from the Father. If you ask the price of bread, your answer is the Father is greater than the Son. If you should want to know whether the bath is ready, you get the pronouncement that the Son was created out of nothing.” Yes, unlike the members of the hierarchy, many of the common people were supporting their conclusions by using God’s Word.

"If you ask the Father for anything, he will give it to you in my name. Until now you have not asked for a single thing in my name." (John 16:23, 24) One reference work describes this as “the turning-point in the history of prayer.” Of course, Jesus never was, and is not, Almighty God for he acknowledged that previously prayer to God was not 'in his name.' Furthermore, Jesus did not intend that prayer should be diverted from God to him. Instead, he was opening up a new way of access to Jehovah God. Granted, God has always listened to the prayers of his faithful servants. (1 Samuel 1:9-19; Psalm 65:2) However, from the time Israel became God’s covenant people, those who wanted their prayers to be heard had to acknowledge that Israel was God’s chosen nation. And later, from the time of Solomon, they had to recognize the temple as God’s chosen place for sacrifice. (Deuteronomy 9:29; 2 Chronicles 6:32, 33) Yet, this system of worship was only temporary. The Bible says that the Law given to Israel and the sacrifices offered at the temple were “a shadow of the good things to come.” (Hebrews 10:1, 2) The shadow had to give way to the reality. (Colossians 2:17) Therefore, since 33 C.E., an individual’s relationship with Jehovah no longer depends on adherence to the Mosaic Law. Instead, it is founded on obedience to the one to whom the Law pointed, Christ Jesus. (John 15:14-16; Galatians 3:24, 25) Hence, when we pray in Jesus’ name, we are expressing faith in at least three facets of his role in the outworking of God’s purpose: (1) He is “the Lamb of God,” whose sacrifice provides the basis for forgiveness of sin. (2) He was resurrected by Jehovah and now acts as “high priest” in administering the benefits of the ransom. (3) He alone is “the way” of approach to Jehovah in prayer. (John 1:29; 14:6; Hebrews 4:14, 15) Jehovah’s will is that “in the name of Jesus every knee should bend. . .and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:10, 11) So, prayer in Jesus’ name appropiately honors him. More importantly, prayer in Jesus' name glorifies Jehovah, who gave his Son for our benefit. (John 3:16)

Ok, I may have done this. A very good friend shared with me a new illustration he came up with, and was just waiting for a chance to use. At the very next meeting, he was walking to the back of the Hall to get ready to conduct the second school, when he heard me from the platform use the illustration in the Bible Highlights. His head whipped around like the guy in the pic. :D Are we still good friends? Absolutely! Does he still share illustrations with me? Not a chance! I know... I'm a monster! Lol
