Say for instance, if I were to tell you I was God in the flesh, would you believe me?

Would you believe anyone who claimed to be him?

On what terms would it take for you to believe such a claim?

I would have to ask him what he means by "God." I can claim to be "Frunger," too, but you'd probably want to know who or what that is before you believed me.

You know what I'm getting at. God, the one who created everything. Just picture it as YOUR personal conception of who and what God is. Should make it easier.

If this ever happens to you, you will know. God won't claim to be God in the flesh until you believe he/she is, and then your hunch will be confirmed through info that could only come from someone with Godly knowledge. People seem to think that Jesus/God will come down out of the clouds in some glorious show, but I say to them, while your getting a strained neck looking for Him, He walked by you and you didn't even see Him.

Jesus claimed to be God, and yet many didn't believe him. Even killed him for claiming it.

Yet some did believe he was who he said he was. And now we have christianity.

If Jesus was God in the flesh, as he says he was; Then yes, God would and has claimed to be God. So, if someone came around claiming to be God today, why would you choose not to believe him? What if you were wrong? You'd be no better then those who denied Jesus, wouldn't you?

Or do you not think Jesus was God in the flesh? If you don't, then do you not follow the NT, or just the parts about Jesus and his teaching's?

lol, I know what you would say. I'm curious what those of faith would say, as this is basically what happened with Jesus when he claimed to be God. So far it sounds like it would happen all over again. People of faith would deny a person who claims to be God. (the few in this thread atleast)

ha ha, i know, but i do so love throwing my two cents in.
it's funny, people of faith have been the first ones to get angry about hobos claiming to be the second coming of jesus.

People I've met who've claimed to be God, I put in the same category as the person who said he could make clouds move (he would point his finger at clouds and say, "See, they're moving!") My belief?--we all have God in us.

I was brought up religiously, having heard from the Bible that we are all brothers and sisters. That just used to mean to me in a rhetorical sense. But now I see this as, wait a minute we're all created in God's image, holy @$ we are a part of God. It has been much easier to find the face of God in everyone. As I see it, it's like God is a round of yeast bread dough and we're all a little pinch off of it, so we can grow, too.
Hey, afterall, at the atomic level, we're all the same and we truly are One with the Universe
Thanks for asking.

I imagine I would be skeptical, but open to the possibility that it might be God. I would hear them out and then make an initial judgement based on that. This judgement, by no means would be final, and could be altered at any time. At least that's what I think I would do.

I have often thought this about Jesus, and pondered how difficult a task it must have been to convince anyone of His identity.

Pretty much why I made the thread. It would be pretty difficult, and as it does seem even for those of faith.

I get knocked down for wanting proof of a God creating everything. And yet, those of faith in this thread would require some form of proof from someone who claimed to be God.

Hypocrits.

Why would we have another person claiming to be God, as Jesus did? From a Christian perspective, it shouldn't happen anyway; Jesus was a fullfillment of a religious prophecy, and needed to perform miracles to convince others, but even he said we shouldn't expect anymore miracles in the future, that's it, show over, use faith. Besides, we're all children of God and no one needs to claim s/he is God. Such a claim today usually comes from persons needing to convince themselves they need power personally or persons wanting to fleece God's flock.

do you know that messiah originally meant "king of the jews"? not "son of god".

See, that's interesting. The prophecies don't speak of a messiah who claims to be God. And yet ... Jesus did just that.

No, I don't.



God, the one who created everything.


The one what? Person? Ghost? Machine? And I'm not quite sure what you mean by "everything." Did this thing even create itself?



Just picture it as YOUR personal conception of who and what God is. Should make it easier.

I have no personal conception of what God is, or is supposed to be. So in that case, I'd have to say that if somebody claimed to be God, I guess wouldn't know what he was talking about. Just like I don't know what you're talking about.

However, would you believe me if I said I was God?
And needed a few bucks to help keep my church going?
