Christ logically says: ‘I am not God’


If you will ask Christ ‘if he is God’, what will you get as an answer? Surely, you will get a clear denial: “I am not God”. Because if he says he is God, then surely, you will no longer pray to the Father in heaven and know and love Him in return in frustration of the mission, which “the Word” who was god (John 1:1) and was sent to earth but waived such godship to be transformed to human being to fulfill it by himself.

But if you ask a “Jesus is God’ believer, of course, you’ll get a different answer because you will be technically swayed to forget the Father in heaven and remember a false Christ as God.

Secondly, if he says he is God, surely, he will be usurping the Godship of the Father in heaven, who was with the Word in the beginning as stated in John 1:1.(In the beginning The Word already existed: The Word was with God, and the Word was God).

Logically, thus, there will be a need to re-write the verse in substance to “In the end, the false Christ is the only God”. Do you like it?

Remember, there is only one God.

Thirdly, the logical implication if Christ on his return is granted Godship by everybody is that despite they don’t yet deserve to be in company of God because of their sinful way, everybody will be technically elevating their status.

Fourth, are you not aware that Christ would not be objecting when you treat him as human? Besides,there is no sense transforming him to human, if the intention was mainly to sustain the godship of the Word. By the way, what is wrong when you treat him as human? Are you sinning?

In fact, if you treat him as human contrary to his suspected nature as God, only Christ could be blamed because he did not explicitly say that he is God. On the other hand, if you allege him to be God contrary to his human nature, obviously, you are a false witness.

Fifth, is it not stated in the scripture that he will be a King? Now, is it wrong to treat him as your King?

Also, Christ was stressing your prayer to be addressed to the Father in heaven and he taught his believers to pray,as follows:

9 This, then, is how you should pray:

‘Our Father in heaven:
May your holy name be honored;
10 may your Kingdom come;
may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today the food we need.
12 Forgive us the wrongs we have done,
as we forgive the wrongs that others have done to us.
13 Do not bring us to hard testing,
but keep us safe from the Evil One.’

(Matthew 6:9-13, GNT)

Notably, it is very unlikely for Christ to teach believers to address their prayers to  him as God as he had been teaching prayer to be addressed to the Father  in heaven. That being so, Christ’s God is not himself but Somebody else.

Finally, he is biblically confirmed not as God in Hebrews 2:17-18, having suffered as he was also tempted like others. For reference, stated under are the cited verses:

17 For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.(NIV)

    What do you literary mean? That the Christ isn’t God and He was just a human?

    • aaphil says:

      Christ, as one of the faculties of God, serves to mediate God and humanity. In other words, he is the way to the Father being the only mediator, whose truth and the ‘promised life’ for believers coming from the Father passes through for humanity. As the son of God, he takes a ‘sui generis’ position or he is not equivalent to God Himself, who is in spirit or mortal beings, who are in flesh. He is in between the two entities.

  5. My own take on the matter is that Christ is imbued with intercessory powers to mediate between God and man.
