JESUS IS GOD
It's Bold it's Big it's Blasphemous...just how you like Gospel.
It's perfectly OK on a forum like this to discuss questions such as the scriptural basis for a disputed doctrine. HOWEVER, to call a statement "blasphemous" because you disagree with it is simply uncharitable. Much harm was done to the Church in the Fourth Century because of the Arian controversy, and I contend that most of it was precisely because of the lack of charity that the disputing parties showed towards each other.
What are you even doing on a christian forum? You aren't one. ANYONE who does not believe Jesus is God is not saved, period. It is the very core of our salvation.
Bold words but empty of wisdom.
Show me this core teaching that salvation is based on Jesus being God. I think you will find salvation has more to do with Jesus' Body and Blood.
This is a good example of how angry words bring about an angry response.
As for salvation being based on "belief that Jesus is God," however, I would agree with you that it is not--at least not fundamentally (since faith is not about propositions, but about a *real* encounter with the living God).
The paradox is that the NT gives plenty of statements that Jesus is *fully* human, and yet also gives many that suggest that He is God. The Church resolved this at the Council of Nicaea in 325, adopting the phrase "true God and true man." Later, at the Council of Chalcedon in 451, they expanded this to say that these two natures are "neither mingled nor confused."
While I believe that the statements of these councils are true, I would not reject a brother just for disagreeing with them.
