Is Jesus God Because He Was Worshipped?

by Servetus the Evangelical Christian worship has been very important to the question of whether Jesus is God. The New Testament (NT) records certain instances in which Jesus was “worshipped.” Christians generally have regarded these as evidence that those practitioners believed that Jesus was God, since only God should be worshipped. But what does “worship” … Continue reading Is Jesus God Because He Was Worshipped?

Jesus Completely Died

by Sean Finnegan http://www.christianmonotheism.com/ Someone once asked the question: "Can God microwave a burrito so hot that He cannot eat it?" To answer yes implies that God cannot eat extremely hot burritos. To answer no implies that God cannot heat it to such a level. This sort of question is flawed because it consists of … Continue reading Jesus Completely Died

When Did God’s Son Come Into Existence?

By Raymond C. Faircloth http://www.biblicaltruthseekers.co.uk Please consider the following key facts concerning Jesus in relation to literal preexistence: Relatively few Scriptures seem to indicate any literal preexistence of Jesus. The Hebrew Scriptures pointed forward to a future existence of the Son of God — Messiah. The Jews believed in foreordination rather than literal preexistence. The … Continue reading When Did God’s Son Come Into Existence?

What Does John Mean by Jesus Coming and Being Sent?

Extracted from The Doctrine of The Trinity by Anthony Buzzard Relying on the preconception that Jesus in John's Gospel came from a pre-human existence in heaven, readers of the fourth Gospel claim that Jesus' "coming from the Father," "coming forth from the Father" or being "sent from God" are clear proof of the doctrine of … Continue reading What Does John Mean by Jesus Coming and Being Sent?

Is Jesus Both God and Man?

by Sean Finnegan sean@KingdomReady.org "…How in the world could Jesus be omnipresent if he couldn't be in two places at once?" I asked. "How could he be omniscient when he says, Not even the Son of Man knows the hour of his return? How could he be omnipotent when the gospels plainly tell us that … Continue reading Is Jesus Both God and Man?

We Should be Testing our Truth!

It is of the essence of error that it parades as Truth. That is why the deceptive work of Satan is so successful. “The whole world lies in the Devil’s deceptive grip” (1 John 5:19). Exponents of error, so Paul said, masquerade as angels of light (2 Cor. 11:13,14). They preach “Jesus,” but it is a false Jesus, not the real Jesus of the Bible. They preach “the Gospel,” but it is a distorted gospel which omits vital saving information. They speak of “spirit” but it is a counterfeit of the holy spirit (2 Cor. 11:4).

Jesus was part of God’s Creation

Colossians 1:15 (ESV) calls Jesus “the firstborn of all creation.” Scholars disagree on what this phrase means, but that is primarily because the doctrine of the Trinity obscures its simple meaning. Trinitarian doctrine states that Jesus is “eternal,” but if that is true then he cannot be the firstborn “of all creation,” because that would … Continue reading Jesus was part of God’s Creation

Jesus was like Adam

Adam, the first man, was fully human and by his sin brought sin into the world. Jesus is called the “last Adam” (1 Corinthians 15:45), but it seems that designation would not be appropriate if Jesus was not fully human in the same way that Adam was. Also, Adam is called a “type” of Jesus … Continue reading Jesus was like Adam

The New Testament teaches that Jesus was completely a man

The New Testament teaches that Jesus was a man. For one thing, Jesus himself said so. For example, in John 8:40, Jesus said he was “a man who has told you the truth” [emphasis ours]. Jesus was not being disingenuous and hiding his “divine nature.” He was making a factual statement that reinforced what the … Continue reading The New Testament teaches that Jesus was completely a man

Is “by Jesus Christ” in The Original Ephesians 3:9

In Ephesians 3 there is a phrase at the end “by Jesus Christ” in verse 9. This implies that God created all things “by Jesus Christ”. Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created … Continue reading Is “by Jesus Christ” in The Original Ephesians 3:9
