There is no place in the Bible where Jesus explicitly says that he, the Holy Ghost, and God the father are one, nor is there any place where he tells people to worship him. But there are examples where he is referred to as God:

"Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours:" (2 Peter 1:1)

"while we wait for the blessed hope--the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ," (Titus 2:13)

"Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of Christ, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen." (Romans 9:5)

"Thomas said to him, 'My Lord and my God!'" (John 20:28)

Yes, there are places where Jesus does the things that are typically attributed to God, and people often sometimes refer to him as God, but Jesus himself never indicates that he is God, and nowhere is there any indication that the Holy Spirit is anything but independent of God.

So No, Jesus is not God, in the Christian sense.

However, if you want to look outside of Christianity, we are all a part of God.

My view is that Jesus is God and the sun of God on the same time and also You are God and the Sun of God on the same time too….every one and every body is God and the Sun of God. We are all unique in the vast sea of oneness. When you see the photo of the planet earth view from space, you see one entity “One” you don’t see black and white north and south, you just see a One planet…
Same for Jesus, Buddha, Mohamed.. and you.

Yes, Jesus and God are one.
Jesus said
Jhn 10:30 I and [my] Father are one.

Also,
Jhn 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou [then], Shew us the Father?

Yes!
If you were a Greek person living in the Roman Empire and did not know Judaism, that would be your conclusion.
The emperors had statues all over that were demanded to be worshiped as Gods.
They believed that stories about mythological figures, who seemed rather human, were about the Gods.
Well, they were preferred to the Titans, who were destroyed by Jupiter.
The more Human, the better.
The old God things that created the universe were serpents.
If the Gods killed the serpents, well, nice for us, because we end up, at least, with gods who are like us.
If a man defeated God, not by rebellion, as Lucifer attempted, but by being better than God, well that would be a natural progression, to the Pagan mind.
By way of defeating the Angry God, Jesus becomes a god, himself.
So, in Human terms, Jesus IS god.

He is God in human flesh. Read John 1:1-17

John 1

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2The same was in the beginning with God.

3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

7The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

8He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

9That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

15John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

16And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

17For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. "


The "Word" was both WITH God, and WAS God. Everything that was made was made by the "Word". (A common misconception among Christians is that God the Father made the world.) The "Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us...full of grace and truth". Who was "full of grace and truth"? John tells us several lines down: "...but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."

See this link, as it explains it pretty well. www.carm.org...

Here is an excerpt

No, Jesus never said the exact three words, "I am God". But Jesus also never said the exact four words, "I am a prophet" or the exact four words "I am a man," but we know he was both a prophet and a man. It is not necessary for Jesus to say the exact phrase "I am a man" for us to know that he was a man. Likewise, it is not necessary for Jesus to utter the exact three words "I am God" in order for us to determine whether or not he is divine. Jesus may not have said the exact sentence "I am God" but he did claim the divine name for himself (Exo. 3:14 with John 8:58) and he also received worship (Matt. 2:2; 14:33; 28:9; John 9:35-38).
When Moses was up at the Mount speaking to God, Moses asked God what his name was. God said, "I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you,’” (Exodus 3:14). In John 8:58 Jesus said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” Right after this the Jews pick up stones to throw at him. Later, in John 10:30-33 Jesus claimed to be one with the Father and the Jews wanted to stone him again because they said to Jesus, "You, being a man, make yourself out to be God." Jesus had claimed the divine name for his own in the Jews wanted to kill him for it. Therefore, from Jesus' own mouth we see that he was claiming to be God.

problem with john 1:1 is that it is a blatant mistranslation since ancient greek did not have an article "a"

transliterated, the scripture reads that the word was with "the god" and the word was "god"

this would be the equivalent in english of saying the word was with god and the word was "a" god.

simple grammar. but advocates of the trinity refuse to see it.

Even if that's true, there are other passages which tell us Jesus is God. John 20:28-29 says:

And Thomas answered and said to him [Jesus], "My Lord and my God!"
Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.

So Thomas, one of the original 12 apostles, calls Jesus God. If Jesus isn't God, why did he just let him say that? He taught his disciples about God, so wouldn't he have explained how he isn't God, just His son?

but jesus is a god. john 1:1 calls him a god. in fact many things are called "god", including satan. hence the title of god is not inappropriate. you will notice the scripture does not call him almighty god, or yahweh. just because jesus is called "god", does not mean that he is the same as "GOD". many times did jesus acknowledge GOD's superiority

verse 17 of the same chapter

[17] Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

Further more; I would like to give you another input on the issue of God and any other prophets (past or present):
If any one believes that Jesus or any other prophet was better then them, then the message has been distorted in to they mind via egocentric preacher and control freak cleric.
You see the overwhelming message from all the prophets is how unique we are. This uniqueness is based on our awareness of one self. It is genuine and indestructible but only few of us can actually enjoy this knowledge of our self. This few that enjoy the understanding of they uniqueness automatically accept all other rareness of self, hence this few people tell to who ever wants to hear the truth about been a live and the connection between all of us, humans, animals, plants and every thing else. When aware of your uniqueness and the uniqueness of every thing around you, your rational mind (which you need also) automatically accept the concept of been unique and part of every thing, consequently you see your self as powerful and omnipotent as any Gods of the scriptures for the reason that every one make every one else unique.
No one is left behind as every one is part of the Whole.

Cant believe theology is already creeping back into this thread.
S.O. even wrote just a few days ago that this belongs in B.T.S.

This is theology and not conspiracy.

I can see how one would label it a conspiracy - but a conspiracy is the intent to deceive.
Not debate over whether a belief is true or not.


Peace

dAlen

p.s. - but to add to the non conspiratorial discussion...

... I will say to those that say the Bible say Jesus is God - well, Jesus called us God as well.


Paul did to.
We are in the body of Christ - we are sons and daughters of God, brothers and sisters of Christ, etc.

When the pharisees bugged Jesus about being God - he said something along the lines of "do you not say you are 'gods'".

Sure you may want to debate this - but it is theology, and one is left..in the end, with whatever it is that they believe.


- peace

We are all a part of God. Jesus made that very clear to Philip when Philip asked to see the Father. Jesus told him if you've seen me - you've seen the Father. They are one. All that belong to him are one.

Think of the infinity symbol a number 8. Either you are inside or you are outside.

It's your call.

Satan is referred to as a god? Sounds interesting, can you tell me where that is?

And besides that verse, there's John 8:58, where Jesus says, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I Am." He's directly calling himself the same God who talked to Moses in Exodus 3. In Exodus 3:14, God says "I Am has sent you." In the same conversation, God uses his proper name (usually translated LORD for whatever reason), so Jesus has to be God.

After Jesus says "I Am" people immediately try to kill him for supposed blasphemy.

OP, in answer to your question. There is one God. There are many names given to Him by many diffferent peoples. There are many stories created by many peoples - some innocent and others to help with a political agenda.

The bottom line is, there is one God and everyone's is the same One. Humans just prefer to argue and win and are quite egocentric so they have a need to be right and in control.

If one believes there is more than god, then they are Pagans and there is nothing wrong with that but they should come out of the closet and quit living in denial.

its not a reference to that. this is a point we went over in the trinity thread.

besides, if jesus was the "firstborn" of all creation, then he would have been around before abraham

You may think that "All the gods are the same" but that does not make it true.
There are a lot of false gods.
I happen to believe that the god I should worship is the only true god, who deserves to be worshiped.
You are welcome to state your opinion on the subject.
That is why this is a forum.
No one has an exclusive right to say what is true.
This was originally in the conspiracy section and got moved because it got religious.
So, you do not have to be religious to comment.
You can say a rock or a pile of dirt is your god, if you want.
The question was "Is Jesus God?"
To me, the simple answer is to look at Baal worship.
Baal's father created the universe and went on to leave it to whatever might happen to it.
Baal went ahead and took it upon himself to step in and take care of the needs of the people.
Sounds nice but it was in direct opposition to the God of Israel.
God says "I made it and I will get involved with how things go."
If we decide that the Father of Jesus left things in order to go on vacation and left his son to take over as God, we might as well be worshiping Baal.
Jesus belongs to the family of Man.
He is our representative before God, to intercede in our behalf.
Jesus has to be all man, but could be filled with the Holy Spirit and Superior to us in his perfection.
That is what would be demanded from him to be our High Priest.
God, Himself, has lifted Jesus to the highest position possible, and does not need us to throw our two cents in to make him something higher than that.

I didn't say all gods are the same. First of all, I do not believe in "gods," as that would be Pagan not that there is anything worn with that. Lots of my friends are Pagans, mostly native peoples. I believe there is one God. So, there is NO false God. There are, however, false stories and false prophets.

You say you believe the god YOU worship is the only true god. So...you are a Pagan then? As you believe in more than one god?

I know I have the right to my opinion. I express it all the time. I haven't said what is true, I have said what I believe and what I have faith in. It is my truth. It doesn't concern me if it is anyone else's. I'm not recruiting.

Jesus is not God. God is God. You worship Baal?

from Wiki:

" 'Ba'al' can refer to any god and even to human officials; in some texts it is used as a substitute for Hadad, a god of the rain, thunder, fertility and agriculture, and the lord of Heaven. Since only priests were allowed to utter his divine name Hadad, Ba'al was used commonly. Nevertheless, few if any Biblical uses of "Ba'al" refer to Hadad, the lord over the assembly of gods on the holy mount of Heaven, but rather refer to any number of local spirit-deities worshipped as cult images, each called ba'al and regarded in that context as a false god."


So you are a Pagan? Awesome......I have a great Pagan symbol tattooed on my back with the following written across the sybol: "I am God's temple and the spirit of God is living within me."

When in doubt, always refer to the Bible and always be careful and be critical what people say. It should always be purely backed up by the Bible, not personal views and opinions.

Jesus is God.

Scripture support:

A) The Word was God

John 1:1 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:14 - The 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.

....

The Word became flesh. The Word was God who came from God the Father.

B) Who was the Word who became flesh?

Matthew 1:23 - "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"--which means, "God with us."

....

The Word who became flesh is Immanuel which means "God with us". Thus, the Word who became flesh was called "God" who was conceived by a virgin.

C) What is the name of the Word who became flesh who was called "God with us" who was conceived by a virgin?

Matthew 1:21 - She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"--which means, "God with us."

....

So, the Word who became flesh who was God and was called "God with us" who was conceived by a virgin is non other than our Lord, Jesus Christ.

D) What was the relationship of God, Jesus Christ, with God the Father?

Matthew 16:16 - Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

Luke 22:70 - They all asked, "Are you then the Son of God?" He replied, "You are right in saying I am."

....

The Word who became flesh who was God who was called "God with us" who was conceived by a virgin, who was Jesus Christ, is the Son of God the Father.

E) What did God the Father address Jesus, the Son of God?

Hebrews 1 -

5 For to which of the angels did God ever say, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father"? Or again, "I will be his Father, and he will be my Son"? 6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him." 7 In speaking of the angels he says, "He makes his angels winds, his servants flames of fire." 8 But about the Son he says, "Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom. 9 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy." 10 He also says, "In the beginning, O Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.

....

God the Father addresses Jesus, as "GOD" and "LORD". Jesus calls His Father "God" and God the Father calls His Son "God" for Jesus says :

John 10:30 - I and the Father are one."

F) What about the Holy Spirit?

John 14:26 - But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

Isaiah 9:6 - For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

John 15:26 - "When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me.

Mark 13:11- Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 10:19 - But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, 20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
....

The Holy Spirit is called the Counselor. The Son of God is called the Counselor. The Son of God is called Everlasting Father. The Holy Spirit came from God the Father. The Son came from the Father. The Son of God is full of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God the Father. God the Father calls His Son "God". The Son of God calls His Father "God".

Technically, you can't count them as three, but one. One God. This is the nature and embodiment of God.

As Jesus Christ said, "I and the Father are one". They are one. As noted in Genesis:

Genesis 1:26 - Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

....

Kindly take careful note on "US" and "OUR". God said, let "US" make man in "OUR" image. God is the only creator. There are no other creator other than THEM. They are "ONE". One God. One Creator.
