JESUS IS GOD

It's Bold it's Big it's Blasphemous...just how you like Gospel.

Insight,

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.

In the days of His flesh the enemy's of Christ understood Jesus to be calling Himself GOD. For this He was put to death.  

Jesus was call Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Jesus said "there is only one good and that is God", the bible says Jesus is good.  

John 1:1 ...and the Word was God... John 1:14 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,

The carnal birth of God gave Him the title "Son of man" Because He was born of a virgin and had no natural father, but God Himself conceived Christ in the virgin's womb, Gave Him the title "Son of God" Jesus is our example in relationship to God. That is one reason for the titles that lead many to believe that Jesus and God are not the same person.
