After my new research, I have since discovered: only begotten God? is the correct translation.
Click here to read: Jesus is more than A God. Because Jesus is the ONLY BEGOTTEN God.
I wonder why the Trinitarian translators of the King James Bible use the verse in John 1:18, only begotten (Son) instead of: only begotten God?
It’s odd that the phrase: The only begotten God, is nowhere else in the whole Bible.
Just as interesting to read that a certain number of the Church Fathers, such as Irenaeus, Clement and Tertullian, were quoting the verse in John 1:18, saying? “Son,” and NOT “God.”
So could scholars be wrong and St John did mean and say:
The only begotten God, which is in line with: God was the word, and the scribe did translate this correctly?
I truly do not know the answer to this one, and will continue seeking and researching.
On the other hand, as I said in my last article, there are other verses where Jesus is referred to as “God,” which I find Trinitarians and Oneness Pentecostals love to point out to prove Jesus is GOD, instead of understanding others are called God or gods, including, angels, and even glorified members of the Church, and even Satan is referred to as the God of this world.
Sadly for those who promote the false doctrine that Jesus is GOD, reveal with their own hands their bad fruits, because when they teach Jesus is THE GOD, they then contradict what they claim to believe that there is only one GOD, because in their other hand they are trying to prove Jesus is GOD which then = TWO GODS, instead of ONE GOD, which completely contradicts their own faith and the word of GOD.
The Biblical fact is Jesus always taught He and His father were always two separate divine beings, who are NOT one GOD but ONE in complete agreement, harmony, and purpose, just as he desires to make all God’s children ONE substance.
The biblical fact is, Jesus always taught we are to believe He is the SON of His Father GOD, John 3:16, and His GOD is the only one true GOD which is eternal life, John 17:3, Mark 12:29, and when we believe Jesus simple teachings we see Jesus does not contradict His own teachings, just as we do not when we truly believe what Jesus taught, that He is the SON of the ONE TRUE GOD.
I will leave you with the research by Bible scholars below in hope to encourage you to do your own research.

May GOD almighty bless those who desire to know the truth of GOD and His one and only begotten SON, and be saved and set FREE. Amen.
Metzger gives the D rating, very unlikely to be right, to theos.
Almost certainly that was a push by “orthodoxy” to corrupt the text.
Jesus cannot be GOD of course since that would make two GODs and destroy the Bible!
