I've shown you quite a few times, if you don't see it that's fine. If James and Jude, Jesus's half-brothers, and Mary His mother worshipped Him as God that's fine with me. Peter, Matthew and John did as well. The angels worshiped Jesus as God.

You say Jesus was just a man, well that's cool I suppose God and Jesus were just hanging out before God created the world and universe. I wonder why God the Father shared His glory with Jesus before the world began?? Jesus says He was sent from Heaven to do the will of God the Father. That's sooooooo kewl, I had no idea humans were being born here on Earth and in Heaven too!! That must be why we have UFOs, for the Heaven humans to come down to Earth like Jesus did right?

If Jesus wasn't God in the flesh I wonder why He told satan that only God was to be worshiped. It's a shame Jesus let all those people worship Him. I wish Jesus had told the angels to stop worshiping Him. I mean, lyke it's soooooooo confusing. All this worshiping it gives the idea Jesus was God. I wonder why the Bible didn't mention Jesus the man too when it said only God was to be worshipped?? I guess Moses forgot that part of the 10 Commandments.

"I AM the Lord thy God, thou shall have no other Gods before me. (P.S. except the eternal man I shared my glory with before I created the world. You can worship Him... but NO ONE else!)"

Did he say my kingdom? nope...



He did here in John 18:36...

"Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence."


Maybe Jesus drank to much wine the night before at the Last Supper?

References please.... I realize there were many that claimed he was God... Im saying Jesus didn't make that claim...

I know its confusing to some, but i guess thats how its supposed to be, either you get it or you don't...

The bible talks about Jesus the man all through it... including prophecy of his coming.

What does moses have to do with this issue?


I AM the Lord thy God, thou shall have no other Gods before me.




Jesus didn't say that...

The Book of James? Book of Jude? Those epistles were written by Jesus's half-brothers. Well, you're wrong. Jesus was put to death for blasphemy. Every miracle He did was a testament to His deity. God the Son was sent to do the will of God the Father by the power of the Holy Spirit. You may think Jesus never claimed He was God, but tell me why Jesus never told those "many that claimed He was God" and worshiping Him as God that He wasn't God?


You answer these questions then:


1. Why did Jesus not forbid people to worship Him as God when the OT scriptures forbid the worship of anything other than God, and especially after Jesus tells satan that only God is to be worshiped?

2. Why did Jesus ask God the Father to "glorify" Him with the glory they "shared" before the world began?

3. Why does Jesus have authority over satan and all the demons and fallen angels?

4. Why is it that anytime an OT prophet spoke to the people they said "Thus sayeth the Lord...", but when Jesus spoke He never said that, He always said "I say unto thee"?

5. How could Jesus pre-exist Abraham, the angels, and the universe?

6. Why is Jesus sitting on the throne in heaven, especially since God says that He will NOT share His glory with another?

7. How did Jesus come "down" from heaven, and why does Jesus say His kingdom is "not from this world"?

8. Finally, can you name another person from history who raised themselves from the dead, or walked on water?

Meaning, not God...but God's son.


1. Why did Jesus not forbid people to worship Him as God when the OT scriptures forbid the worship of anything other than God, and especially after Jesus tells satan that only God is to be worshiped?


Wouldn't Jesus telling satan "only God is to be worshiped" answer your question? I don't know why he didn't forbid them to worship him, he repeatedly said "why don't you understand me" as well. I don't question him or his words, but i won't assume he said something he didn't either.


2. Why did Jesus ask God the Father to "glorify" Him with the glory they "shared" before the world began?


Better question, If he was God why would he have to ask? Before the world began we all existed, your soul is eternal and cannot be destroyed by anything in the physical world.

Matthew 10:28
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Yet...you need not fear God if you are right with him



3. Why does Jesus have authority over satan and all the demons and fallen angels?


Satan is the material world, perhaps even the God of the physical world. Jesus understood the spirit is more then the physical world, possessions are useless, you can't take them with you. Satan promised him everything any man could ever want, and Jesus said nah, your treasures are useless to me...

This will help....

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.


4. Why is it that anytime an OT prophet spoke to the people they said "Thus sayeth the Lord...", but when Jesus spoke He never said that, He always said "I say unto thee"?


They were not sent by God, only comunicating with him apparently. And i have my doubts on that issue as well. Jesus was the one man who understood where he came from. As he explains here...

13The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.

14Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

15Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

16And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

17It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.

18I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.


And just to reinforce that fact, he also states this...

John 10:30
I and my Father are one.

So he knew the mind of God, which is why he only spoke truth.


5. How could Jesus pre-exist Abraham, the angels, and the universe?


Already explained that...


6. Why is Jesus sitting on the throne in heaven, especially since God says that He will NOT share His glory with another?


Perhaps he rules over heaven, i don't know...i have no memory of the after life. Hes still not God, only a part of...


7. How did Jesus come "down" from heaven, and why does Jesus say His kingdom is "not from this world"?


As i've said he knew what he was, spirit and flesh... If he was "sent" from heaven, and knows where he comes from and where hes headed, obviously this isn't his kingdom... He was hated by the world, and so were his followers that preached his word.

22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.


8. Finally, can you name another person from history who raised themselves from the dead, or walked on water?


Actually theres been a few apparently, but this means nothing. Did he walk on water? I don't know, to me that sounds like a fairy tale. On the other hand theres evidence of levitation in the gnostics, and in the bible i believe. Simon was a magician or something like that... I forget sorry...


Either way i don't care if he walked on water. Its what he taught that counts. I don't believe his words because he walked on water, i believe his words because they're pure truth. That part of the story is meaningless

Did he walk on water?



washing of water by the word

born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

he gave power even to those that believe on his name

He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.

By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Sure, in a figurative sense heaven can be anywhere. People use it as a figure of speech quite often. However, when spoken of as the realm and throne where God and the dead redeemed go it's hyper-dimensional. Jesus says it's not on the Earth in John 8:23:

"And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world."

He says He is not from this world, He came from heaven.


If hyper-dimensional realm is how you understand that, it is fine. However, I see it as something much more personal than outside myself. As Christ said:



20And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.


Thus, if the Kingdom of Heaven is within you AND not of this earth then logically you must stop living for the world but the spirit within you. The Kingdom of Heaven is a state of mind of absolute freedom without any offence of regard for sin. It is a state of being free to do what ever noble desire is in your heart with the full support of your Brothers and Sisters around. It is an existence of love for all, and it begins in the mind.

If you live for the world and worldly things, then yes, you are beneath Christ, because there is always a higher purpose to our lives. The only way to realise this higher purpose is by loving all, and forgiving all. The material world is a temptress. It makes you work for the beast and keeps you fighting for your own survival so that you cannot see another way. People do not work for God or each other any more. They work for mammon/money. Money is the root of iniquity for it weighs one man's labor over another's and is nothing more than a control mechanism used to direct a society. It isn't owned by the government, but private corporations. Thus, the private corporations run the planet for they control the money supply. Governments are held hostage by monetary privatisation owned and controlled by a small handful of people. For these people mankind gives their life blood. Each and every monetary instrument from the dollar to the Yen is a mark upon man demonstrating his allegiance to the system.

There is a way out. That way is to do as Christ did and help one another. We must stand united against the beast or we will continue to be cut down and shackled as we each fight for our own interest.

Christ showed the way to Heaven. All we have to do is do what he said, love one another, do not judge one another.

With Love,

Your Brother

No, Christ wasn't just some great teacher that showed everyone how to endure unjustice. Jesus paid our debt in full to the Father. "It is finished!" in the Greek is "tetelistai", and it literally means "paid in full".

"It is finished" is very open to interpretation. By your view, you do not have to believe anything or really do anything. Simply believe the magic word "Christ" and all is done. When you believe like this it is no reason people shake their heads at the lack of logic their. It is also the reason Christianity as a whole is mocked and ridiculed. Anyone with half a sense can actually read what Christ taught and point out the flaws in the whole Christian belief. You have to want to not have to work for it to interpret scripture the way that many do.

"It is finished" is the end of Christ's teaching. It was the final lesson in how we are to love one another. Yes, we are supposed to love one another as such. We make excuses not to to satisfy our own self righteousness. We judge each other because we feel that others are worse off than ourselves. It gives us satisfaction to put others down and find fault because we are unhappy with ourselves. Some of our lives are so screwed up with spiritual guilt that the only way they can function is if a belief in an idol were true. The idol takes away personal responsibility. Just like the serpent in the garden. We do not want to take the blame ourselves and just do what we are supposed to do, love one another without exception.

With Love,

Your Brother

Moot point, every word is.


By your view, you do not have to believe anything or really do anything.


My view? Hardly, I'm not authorized to make up doctrine. I cannot add anything to what Christ already accomplished, furthermore it's absurd to think someone could.

The gospel, or "good news" is in 1 Corinthians 15: "Christ died according to the scriptures, was buried, and rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

That's it. Pretty simple.


Simply believe the magic word "Christ" and all is done.


Straw man. It's trusting Jesus when He said He finished everything. Trusting Him that He is the all-sufficient Savior. The "Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world". I trust HIM and what HE did on my behalf, not a string of letters that spell "Christ". His name is Yeshua anyways.


When you believe like this it is no reason people shake their heads at the lack of logic their.


"For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God." ~ 1 Corinthians 1:18


It is also the reason Christianity as a whole is mocked and ridiculed.


"If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you." ~ John 15:19



Anyone with half a sense can actually read what Christ taught and point out the flaws in the whole Christian belief.


You'd have to start with the words spoken after the Last Supper. It was during that supper that Jesus instituted the New Covenant with mankind. Christians follow the New Covenant, we are justified by faith, by trusting God.

"This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me"


You have to want to not have to work for it to interpret scripture the way that many do.


Did that make sense when you were typing it? ^^^^


"It is finished" is the end of Christ's teaching.


Not true at all. Christ appeared 11 times after His resurrection, He spoke to Saul on the road to Damascus, and Paul said in Galatians that he didn't learn his doctrine from the other apostles, he learned it directly from Christ Himself when he was in Arabia. Christ also dictates seven letters to His "beloved" disciple John in the Book of Revelation. And Christ instructed His followers before He ascended back to heaven.



It was the final lesson in how we are to love one another.


"It is finished!" means "Love one another"? Interesting, the Greek Lexicons say otherwise. Or do you have greater authority than Koine Greek Lexigraphers? The Gospel is spelled out directly in Romans, especially the last section of chapter 3, then chapters 4 and 5 exactly how we are justified to God through Jesus His Son.

My view is this;

There is a reason we need Jesus Christ; because we are all sinners. All of us. What you are effectively doing is taking an individual or individuals and putting them on your own personal "scale" of what YOU believe reflects a "true" Christian. The error in that is that you have no authority to say who is a true Christian and who isn't. By default, we are Christians because we are sinners. We have turned to Christ to ask for forgiveness. Do we continue to sin? Yes, most do. Again, that's why Christ died; for our sins.

Now, the people who you believe are "worthy" of your personal definition of a Christian may be watching porn and masturbating every night. They may have some of the most impure thought of anybody, but you wouldn't know that. So, when we say, "you can't judge a book by it's cover", it applies equally to all, not just "dirty covers" but, nice, clean covers as well.

Finally, if we were to create a scale of say, 1 to 1000, 1 being a "terrible, hypocritical Christian" 1000 being a "perfect" Christian, who are you to say at which level one can be deemed a worthy Christian? By what authority do you determine who is a valid Christian and who isn't? Show me one Christian who thinks they are without sin and I'll show you a liar.

All Christians backslide. Just like the variety of flowers God put upon this earth, there is also a variety of people and their sins and faults. Are they hypocrites? Probably. But I'm sure Christ accepts them as His children just as he accepts the "perfect" Christians. He makes no distinction. If you accept that you are sinful by nature and accept Christ as your savior, then you are equal in His eyes. So, all that being said, the issue you have with this is a personal one. It annoys you. You believe you have the "perfect" definition of what a Christian should be. I just gave the the definition of what a Christian is. If you don't like it, take it up with Christ Himself. I'm sure you could set him straight.

Thanks for your comment Mr.Lee. I understand what you are trying to say and I realize that no one is perfect. The problem I have with people, not just Christians, is outwardly proclaiming they have a certain set of beliefs but by their actions they fail miserably.

Yes, there are many Christians who outwardly appear to be model servants but have many skeletons in their closets, my beef isn't with them. At least these people don't publicly tarnish the credibility of their fellow believers.

If someone wants to live life on their terms (sinners according to the bible) then do it and stop pretending to be someone else. I have no authority to say what constitutes a model Christian, but the bible mentions it quite a bit, and I can read. I just feel that there are certain behaviors that any Christian, whether old or new, should know not to engage in.

I just think many Christians want the best of both worlds. They want to feel secure in the knowledge that they will be saved and go to heaven yet they don't want to give up their old ways of living. It doesn't take a biblical scholar to know that their lord and savior isn't going to be very happy with their choice of leading a double life.

But anyway it really isn't up to me to point out the obvious they can work that out with their god. I just wrote the post because I am married to one of those people and was tired of all the hypocrisy from her and her so called Christian friends.

For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith.

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.

He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.



Yes, there are many Christians who outwardly appear to be model servants but have many skeletons in their closets, my beef isn't with them. At least these people don't publicly tarnish the credibility of their fellow believers.



Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

Yes,even that question came up only because of some so-called Christians there—false ones, really —who were secretly brought in. They sneaked in to spy on us and take away the freedom we have in Christ Jesus. They wanted to enslave us and force us to follow their Jewish regulations.

Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day.

Ye shall know that I am the LORD when I have wrought with you for my name's sake and not according to your wicked ways, nor according to your corrupt doings

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God



If someone wants to live life on their terms (sinners according to the bible) then do it and stop pretending to be someone else. I have no authority to say what constitutes a model Christian, but the bible mentions it quite a bit, and I can read. I just feel that there are certain behaviors that any Christian, whether old or new, should know not to engage in.



But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.

for whatever is not from faith is sin..and the law is not of faith

For all the law (of faith/liberty) is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

and where there is no law there is no sin counted.

when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law



I just think many Christians want the best of both worlds. They want to feel secure in the knowledge that they will be saved and go to heaven yet they don't want to give up their old ways of living. It doesn't take a biblical scholar to know that their lord and savior isn't going to be very happy with their choice of leading a double life.



You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.

Who are you to judge another’s servant?

if judgement begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?

He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.

he who is married cares about the things of the world—how he may please his wife. But she who is married cares about the things of the world—how she may please her husband.



But anyway it really isn't up to me to point out the obvious they can work that out with their god. I just wrote the post because I am married to one of those people and was tired of all the hypocrisy from her and her so called Christian friends.



those who marry will face many troubles in this life

Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife. But to the rest I, not the Lord, say: If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is willing to live with him, let him not divorce her. And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But God has called us to peace. For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?

for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls

Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.


and just to add regarding Satan, sex and marriage-


Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, unless you both agree to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time.. Afterward, you should come together again so that Satan won’t be able to tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

Hi Rustami,

Yes I am familiar with most of those bible verses you posted. However, since I don't believe in the bible as an absolute authority in my life then these verses mean no more to me than advice from a self help book. I can take it or leave it, either way my eternal salvation does not depend on whether or not I adhere to the biblical teachings. Thanks and have a great day.

what ever floats your boat, but you do know your thread and post are using biblical words like Christian (of Christ) and eternal salvation which come from the New Covenant right?


And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him

And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

your welcome, thank you too and yes I would say at a minumum give "advice" for "self" help for most, though for me it was a voice heard that match the scriptures witness the exact moment I had started to open a NT that referred to himself as Jesus
