Is Jesus God? Is it a Scam that Jesus is God?

By Edited May 21, 2015 1 6

Is Jesus God? Is it a Scam that Jesus is God?

In the name of the father and of the son and of the holy ghost or the holy spirit. That is part of a prayer that has been recited for centuries. There is also the idea of God the father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Well that brings us to the question, is Jesus God? If Jesus is not God, where did the teaching of God the Son comes from? Have we been scammed by the teaching that Jesus is God? Let us look at some interesting points that might help understand the question, is Jesus God?

Who is Jesus and Is Jesus God?

Well, let us look at the scriptures to get an answer to this question. The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. – Luke chapter 1:35 new international version

Anyone who can read can quickly answer the question is Jesus God. It state here that the child will be called "Son of God". That is simple and straight to the point. Jesus is not God. The bible says that Jesus is the son of God.

Where did the teaching that Jesus is God derived?

If you have heard about the saying God the father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit, you probably think that expression came from the bible. Well it is not derived from the bible. This teaching has to do with the Trinity. By the way, you will never find the word Trinity in the bible. The teaching of the Trinity is also derived from pagan worship. The bible clearly states that Jesus is not God but rather that Jesus is the son of God.

Does it really matter if Jesus is God?

If you are a believer, it does matter because your faith really depends on it. If Jesus is God and Jesus was killed when he was on earth. He was dead for 3 days, who raised Jesus from the dead if Jesus was God? That will mean that God was killed. If God died, who had the power to raise God from death? If on the other hand Jesus is the son of God, then it must be God who raised Jesus from the grave. There is no mystery in the question "is Jesus God".

Another reason why it does matter if Jesus is God is because of what the bible said. The bible said that no man can see God and live. On the other hand thousands saw Jesus when he was on earth. If Jesus was God, they would all have died. It is obvious that Jesus is not God. What about the idea of God the Holy Spirit? Is the holy spirit male or female?

Have millions been scammed into believing that Jesus is God? The answer is yes. In the days of William Tyndale, those who wanted to read what the scriptures said were killed. Today the scriptures are freely available and very few take the time to read them. If you really want to know the correct answers to questions like is Jesus God? You need to take the time to read the bible for yourself. Don't believe everything you are told. Is Jesus God? NO!

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. 3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1-3,14; NIV)

This article does not reflect any serious interaction with historic Christian teaching. You have not proved your point. Incidentally, Christian theology does not say that God died, but the God-man Jesus Christ died. Read Calvin, Grudem, Augustine, and others for a presentation of the Trinity that is not the straw man that this article represents.

God-man Jesus Christ died????
There is no need to read the others, all that matters is if the trinity is referenced in the bible.

Strange article. A lot of sweeping statements but no real interaction with the Biblical text. Not really worth commenting on as this is not, and will not be, the last argument trying to disprove the divinity of Christ. For more than 2000 years attempts have been made to discredit the Biblical text. Nothing new here.

Wow this is a poorly made case against standard Bible based understanding of how the Trinity works. While you are correct the word "Trinity" is not in the Bible, it is a term coined centuries ago to describe in a word a very Biblical concept. Many words are not in the Bible but that does not make the reality of those words any less true.

Study your Bible to understand that God is a three part concept. This is easily proven by many verses in the Bible. For example, Jesus clearly prayed to His Father - who is also our Heavenly Father. That is why the Lord's Prayer starts with "Our Father who art in Heaven... " Jesus was humbled and born to Mary so he could be tempted like us but prevail. Jesus, both a man and God, died sinless for our sins in our place. The Holy Spirit is also part of God, sent to us after Jesus returned to heaven, and the Holy Spirit still works in our lives today.

To deny these basic facts is to deny salvation through Christ Jesus, deny the work of the Holy Spirit in bringing people closer to God, and deny our own heavenly Father. I would
