Servetus,

Holy Cow!

"Welcome to paradox."

I don't know how long people will be kept in that paradox.

There is no problem to be both human and divine, if you ask me we all are

Yes God is the Father and the word of God, Jesus spoke the word of God and I'm not really arguing that, that does not make it that Jesus is God, How Jesus acted was of God's nature/God's will, don't we have that in ourselves as well? To become Christ like which is also to become divinely [NOT as in God our creator] (for us ordinary folks) is to follow Jesus who acted divinely from the Holy Spirit - God's will or God's nature either one.

What religion are you?

Does that really matter ??

Your post is too long, my dear.  I'll try to have something for you to think about sometime next week.

Your lost

Well, there ya go, I would actually be arguing in support of you.  Since we don't believe Elohim and Jesus are the same.

Who is "we" Angela?  The "same" what?

Angela meant her and me (we) and that we both don't believe God and Jesus are the same (entity, being, person)

very lengthy quotations, angel.  you posted 100 verses purporting to show that Jesus and God are different things.  perhaps you could help by going through them, to show exactly how they show this

If I do that then you will have to really really really bear with me, I'm not sure if I can thou and I believe a lot of them are explained in the website I provided which basically is similar to the way I understand it.

Angel,

I went over some of your post and I'm am very sorry but it is too long and there are so many "inaccuracies" in it that it would take me forever to respond to them all.

inaccurancies

Inaccurancies like you believing that Jesus is God

I can give you a couple of websites to look over if you wish.

 

Jesus is God

http://web.archive.org/web/20021206035950/ic.net/~erasmus/RA Z98.HTM

Trinity

http://web.archive.org/web/20040217141524/ic.net/~erasmus/RA Z99.HTM

Good luck.

Thanks.wil have to look at it later.

That was a huge effort and looking at all the stuff that people wrote and you quoted, everyone including even the Christians should be able to say that Jesus is not God.

To understand God in all Majesty, Glory and Truth, it would be better to read and quote from the chapter of Isaiah in the Jewish Bible or the OT.

Some pearls from Isaiah:

42:8 "I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not give my glory to another or praise to idols."

43:10-12 "Before me no god was formed, nor willl there be one after me. "I, even I, am the Lord and apart from me there is no saviour. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed- I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my witnesses," declares the Lord, "that I am God. Yes, and from ancient days I am he. No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?"

44:6 "I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God."

44:8 "Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one." 

After reading all of above, Jesus is not God at all.

BMZ

Did not Jesus spoke God's words and teach it ? And Didn't Jesus speak it word for word ? Of course people are going to think Jesus is God I can see how/why people would do so.

How is Jesus going to teach and show God's words and will if he didn't actually animated God's words and will.

For example if I am speaking some of God's words from the bible or the qur'an (since qu'ran is (supposedly) God's words) am I God ? is Muhammed God since he spoke and taught God's words. Jesus spoke orally, yes, so I can see how people can think Jesus is God since the words came from his mouth.

I agree with what fredi mentioned:

bmz - none of the verses you quote from isaiah show that Jesus is not God.  what they show is that there is only one God, and so if any other "god" comes along, claiming to be something other than God, or different to God, then he/it cannot be God
