Jesus Doesn’t Have Two Natures and Wills. That’s Anthropology on Steriod Pills!

Almost all Christians believe that Jesus of Nazareth was and is God. And they generally believe that God is omniscient, thus knowing everything, including all about the future. However, Jesus told his apostles that he would be killed, rise from the dead, ascend to heaven, and someday return to earth, and he added that he did not know the day when he would return. If Jesus was God, how could he not have known when he would return, especially since God the Father knew it?I was a Trinitarian … [Read more...]

Christ’s Enemies Claimed He Said He Was God. But He Only Said, “I’m the Son of God.”

Most Christians think Jesus claimed to be God. Ask most of them who know their Bible, “Where does the Bible say Jesus claimed to be God?” and they’ll likely answer, “He said it in John 10.30, ‘I and the Father are one.’” But that is a far cry from saying, “I am God,” or the like.

The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians at Philippi, exhorting them to be humble and love one another (Philippians 2.1-4). Then he added what all modern scholars insist is a pre-existing hymn that probably was known to his readers and whose composer remains unknown to us. Paul introduces this hymn by telling readers, “Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus” (v. 5 NASB). Then he relates this hymn about Jesus as follows: “who, although He existed in the form of God, did no … [Read more...]

If God Is Three Persons That’s Rather Odd, Since We Were Made in the Image of God.

Most Christians believe in the church doctrine of the Trinity, that God is one essence consisting of three co-equal and co-eternal Persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. Many cite three passages in the book of Genesis as their primary Old Testament (OT) support for the Trinity: Genesis 1.26; 3.22; 11.7. And they often refer to them when asserting that Jesus preexisted. These texts are as follows:1.26 “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our li … [Read more...]
