Whom should we believe - Jesus or the Church?

We find here that Jesus was not co-equal with the Father, for Jesus said: "The Father is greater than I" (John 14:28). The priests forget this and they say that Jesus is equal to the Father.

Muslims and Christians agree that God is self-existent. That means that He does not derive his existence from anyone. Yet the bible tells us that Jesus' existence is caused by the Father. Jesus says in this Gospel: "I live because of the Father" (John 6:57).

The bible tells us that Jesus did not have any authority of his own when he quotes Jesus as saying: "I can do nothing of my own authority" (John 5:30). This agrees with what we learn about Jesus from the other Gospels. In Mark, for example, we learn that Jesus performed miracles by a power which was not within his control.
