I have not contridicted myself rather you have not lsitened to what I have said or you refuse to accept my argument.
I am a Christian which means that I follow the teachings of the Christ.
There is a difference bewtween The Christ and Jesus.
I am not a Jesustian.
The Christ is God, Jesus was a man. Christ and Jesus are 2 distinct seperate beings. The Christ did manifest completely in a man. The Christ did die on a Cross inside a man. The Christ raised that man from the dead. The power of the Christ is our salvation. Jesus knew this and that is why you can not find in the bible anywhere where Jesus claims to be GOD.
Christ is a title, the title we use to describe our GOD as he exsist in us. Christ is not a name. Jesus is a name. To say Jesus Christ is not incorrect. To say Jesus was the Christ is not incorect either. You probably belive that Jesus lives inside you. Truth is The Christ lives inside you just like he lived inside of Jesus.
I believe that Satan uses Jesus as a way to confuse believers. Satan would have everyone worship Jesus as GOD and not come into the realization of the power of the Christ. Satan fears the Christ he did not fear Jesus that is why he attempted to tempt him. Many so-called Christians are fooled to worship Jesus as GOD. Any church, religion, spirtual movement that teaches hate is of Satan. There has been more hate and death in the name of Jesus than any other name on the face of this earth. Likewise there are many who worhip Christ as Jesus and they understand the power of Christ and the Love of GOD. Those people who worhip Jesus and believe that others who do not are dammed are the people who realy worhip Satan. It is the context that Jesus is used by Satan to get believers to worhip Jesus as GOD that Jesus becomes the anti-christ.
Jesus when worshiped as GOD is the Anti-Christ. He is fullfilling the work of Satan.
You have gone on many lentghy tagents arguing points that are not at dispute. I orginally set out to question the devinity of Jesus and that is the argument I would like you to consider. Do not tell me that Christ is GOD. Do not tell me that Jesus Christ is GOD. Those are not my questions. Tell me clearly how Jesus alone is GOD. Show me were Jesus alone claims to be GOD.
I would like you to explain from a logical point of view or a spiritual one How can GOD be tempted with something he already possess. Do not tell me how GOD can be tempted that is not my question. My questions is How can anyone be tempted by something they already have. You can not offer my car to me as a temptation I already own it. How is it then that Satan could tempt GOD with all the kingdoms of the world? God already possessed the Glory of all Kingdoms all things.
You can only come to one conclusion. Satan was tempting a man, not GOD, with Glory. That man having Christ manefested in him withstood the temptation and ordered Satan to worship GOD.
I have asked you to restudy the Bible and to search for Christ. You choose to ignor that request and instead try to convince me and others that Jesus is GOD. You offer lengthy arguments from the Bible and web sites. You defend your position with passion. You do not pray about it or ask GOD for truth. If I worshiped the devil and I thought I was worshipping GOD I guess I would seek high and low for as many resources to support my false belief. I would not want to consider the hard questions that may shed light on my false belief.
Why do you continue to offer a barrage of scriptures on points that were never debated instead of addressing the original question asked.
If Jesus is GOD how could Satan tempt him with something GOD alrady has?
As for the Bible. I believe the Bible was written by men who tried there best to share stories and lessons that will help us understand the nature of GOD. I use the Bible as a resource to help me draw closer to my GOD. I do not believe that the Bible is perfect. There are too many contridictions for the Bible to be considered perfect. That beinng said I think everyone should read it, understand it and try to live by the teachings in it.
I ask that you only respomd to my original question.
With Love to you and all that read this.
