I feel the need to correct a fallacy held by those who consistently state (as AutoWrench did earlier,) "Jesus never claimed to be God".
From John 10:30 "I and the Father are one" NIV
From John 8:58 “Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!” NIV
Unbelievers and skeptics are free to disbelieve that Jesus was divine. However, he HIMSELF claimed to be God....not a good teacher, and not "inspired
by the Creator".
It is typical in this day and age with the prevalence of so-called internet experts that we get regurgitated so-called iron-clad arguments such as
Jesus is not the Messiah, BECAUSE he never claimed to be divine.
I encourage everyone to read actual tactile source material, and not take everything they read on the internet as the absolute truth. If you want to
believe Christians are misguided, foolish, or lacking intellectual ability, so be it.
Sorry for the thread derail.
I can and do respect atheists, so long as they at least support their argument with valid claims and not hand-me-down internet truisms.
