THE DAMNABLE HERESY THAT TEACHES JESUS IS NOT GOD


THE FALSE TEACHING THAT JESUS IS NOT GOD

This teaching is found in the following religions/cults - Mormonism - Jehovah's witnesses - some 7th day adventists - Christadelphian - Islam


The Bible clearly says that Jesus is God
(1) Isaiah called Jesus God (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6)
(2) Matthew called Jesus God (Matthew 1:23)
(3) Jesus called Himself God (John 5:17-18 - 8:58-59 - 10:30-33 - Revelation 1:8)
(4) John called Jesus God (John. 1:1 - 1 John 3:16 - 5:20)
(5) Thomas called Jesus God (John 20:28)
(6) Paul called Jesus God (Acts 20:28 - Philippians 2:5-6 - 1 Timothy 3:16 - Titus 2:13)
(7) God the Father called Jesus God (Hebrews 1:8-10)

In His incarnation the Lord Jesus Christ "made himself of no reputation" and became a lowly servant to God and man (Philippains 2:7)
The Greek word for "made himself of no reputation" is "kenoo," meaning "to empty, to abase, to make of none effect" (Strongs concordance)
Jesus did not cease to be God.
Philippians 2:6 plainly states that He is God, but the Son of God willingly laid aside His glory for the purpose of redeeming man by the cross.

There is an order to the Trinity.

God the Son submits to God the Father, even though they are equal.
