The Mormons may be said to believe Jesus is a separate God, the God of this world, while the Father lives on the planet kolob, and is the God of that world and this world. The Mormons and the J.W.’s believe Jesus is a created being, just under God. Islam of course believes that Jesus was a prophet, deists and universalist believe him to be a prophet or a teacher sent from God. Hindu’s and Buddhists may also fall into this category. One thing, Jesus is such an historical and powerful religious figure, that almost all the worlds religions must try to fit him into their framework because they cannot deny his existence and power. The other thing is that they must deny the record of what he said and what his followers preached afterward, because he denounced them all. They need to destroy the credibility of the Bible as it has come down to us and write their own book.
OK let’s stretch our minds a little with a logic problem.
It’s only because we were thinking in two dimensions not three. In real life we only think in three dimensions because that is all we know.
Interesting note: Microsoft Office spell check understands that there is only one Saviour spelled with an “I” and capitalized. It recognizes Saviour as word but correctly understands that it cannot be plural or un-capitalized.
Well, if you have trouble calling Jesus God because there is only one God, then maybe you will have trouble calling Jesus Saviour because there is only one Saviour.
In fact there is no other name under heaven given amongst men whereby we can be saved.
Well, if you have trouble calling Jesus God because there is only one God, then maybe you will have trouble calling Jesus your redeemer because there is only one redeemer.
Yet, Jesus redeemed us by his own blood.
I think that these Bible doctrines can answer any logic problem that the cults bring up.
As far as mistranslations and copying errors… those that heard the very words that Jesus spoke and understood and spoke the very language and dialect that Jesus spoke, thought he was calling himself God or making himself equal with God.
Those around him who heard him speak, understood that he was forgiving sins with his own authority.
I did a simple word search of the gospels and the words “I will” in red, to find all the times Jesus said “I will” some were interesting. Jesus seemed to preach it was his decision who would be cast out, who would be raised from the dead, that he would give his body for us, who he would receive in the mansions of heaven, that he would answer prayers, he said the Holy Ghost would come and comfort the apostles, then he said he would come and comfort them, he seemed to think if he willed it then the apostle John would live till he came again.
I did a simple word search of the gospels and the words “I am” in red, to find all the times Jesus said “I am” some were interesting. Jesus said he is the bread of life, he is the light of the world, he is the door of salvation, he is the good shepherd, he is the resurrection, he is the way, the truth and the life, and if we don’t believe he was who he said he was we will die in our sins.
