Jesus Christ is God
The scriptures bear abundant testimony that Jesus Christ is God. Some liberal preacher will say to me, "You take the Bible literally. It's just myths." I answer, "Yes, I believe the Bible 100%. It is the word of God. If you don't believe it, Jesus is of no effect to you, ye are yet in your sins."
"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD was manifest in the FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, BELIEVED ON in the world, RECEIVED UP into glory."

Colossians 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
1:15 WHO IS THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD, the firstborn* of every creature:
1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
*firstborn: pre-eminence in rank more than to priority in time. This can be shown in passages where the term 'firstborn' is used of the pre-eminent son who was not the eldest, e.g. Psalm 89:27, where David is called 'firstborn' although he was actually the youngest son.
"For in [Jesus] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily."

THESE PEOPLE DID NOT UNDERSTAND THAT JESUS WAS GOD AND THOUGHT HE BLASPHEMED WHEN HE TOLD THE TRUTH.
"The Jews answered [Jesus], saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God."
-- John 10:33
Addenda from justbible.com--
Some cults teach that Jesus was God's first Creation, and that Christ then Created the universe we know. This is a verse cults use to support their false doctrine.
("Revelation 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;")
This verse also.
("John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. ")
They say, "See, he was in the beginning with God."
They will even use this verse.
("Proverbs 8:22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. 23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.")
Now for the Truth, from God's word, let's compare Scripture with Scripture.
If you only read this verse, you might think it was talking about Jesus, and that he was set up.
But if you read the chapter, you will realize who or what it is talking about.
("Proverbs 8:12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.")
Wisdom, not Christ. The whole chapter is about wisdom personified. To make it even more clear that it is not Christ, wisdom is spoken of as female.
("Proverbs 8:2 She standeth in the top of high places,...")
Let's see what the Bible says about Christ.
("Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:") ("John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.")
He created everything that was created, and nothing was created by anyone but him. If Christ made all things then he must have existed before everything that was created. ("Colossians 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.") He is the one and only Creator. If he created all things then did he create himself? No, he can't be a created being. He existed before the beginning. He is from Everlasting. ("Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.") Jehovah God said: ("Isaiah 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.") Jesus Christ said: ("Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.") ("Revelation 1:18 Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.")
Hosanna in the Highest! Jesus is Jehovah!

The following excerpt taken from Jesus Christ our Creator: A Biblical Defence of the Trinity by Jonathan Sarfati at http://www.answersingenesis.org/docs/4222.asp
Some Objections to the Trinity Answered
Despite the clear Biblical evidence for the Trinity, some cults have objections based on misunderstandings of Scripture.
Jesus said: My Father is greater (meizon) than I (John 14:28). But this refers to the Fathers greater position in Heaven, not superior nature. Philippians 2:511 states that Jesus had equality by nature with God, but voluntarily took on the lower position of a servant. The same arguments apply to related passages about Jesus submitting to His Fathers will.
The word better (kreitton) would have been used to describe superiority in nature if this is what had been meant. Indeed, kreitton is used to describe Jesus superiority in His very nature to the angels (Hebrews 1:4). The distinction can be illustrated in the human realm by the role of the Prime Minister he is greater than us in position, but he is still a human being like us, so is not better in nature.
Jesus is called the firstborn of every creature (Colossians 1:15). However, in Jewish imagery, firstborn means having the rights and special privileges belonging to the eldest child. It refers to pre-eminence in rank more than to priority in time. This can be shown in passages where the term firstborn is used of the pre-eminent son who was not the eldest, e.g. Psalm 89:27, where David is called firstborn although he was actually the youngest son.
Firstborn does not mean first created; the Greek for the latter is protoktisis, while firstborn is prototokos. In fact, the verses after Colossians 1:15 show that Christ Himself is the creator of all things.
Jesus is Son of God. From this, some cults try to show that Jesus is somehow less than God. But in Jewish imagery, the son of often meant of the order of or having the very nature of. For example, sons of the prophets meant of the order of prophets (1 Kings 20:35); sons of the singers meant of the order of singers (Nehemiah 12:28). Jesus Jewish contemporaries understood that He was claiming to be God, which is why they wanted to kill him for blasphemy (John 19:7).
Jesus is the only-begotten Son (John 3:16). The Greek word translated only-begotten is monogenes, which means unique, one of a kind. Jesus is the unique Son of God, because he is God by His very nature (see above). Believers in Him become sons of God by adoption (Galatians 3:264:7).
This is shown in the human realm by Hebrews 11:17, where Isaac is called Abrahams only begotten son. Abraham had other sons, but Isaac was the unique son of the Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis chapters 1518, 20), born when his parents were old.
