In a time when anyone can identify as anything , I’ve a greater sensitivity to those who claim to be Christian, but aren’t. Basic teachings and basic elements of Christianity are ignored or disagreed with, but one still claims to be Christan. Obviously God is the final judge, but the Bible already has criteria laid out. I can identify as polar bear, but if I don’t fit the criteria, I’m deluded (Matt 7:22-23).

The first type of biblical doctrine some ignore, concern behavior. Authentic Christ followers obey the moral and behavioral commands of Jesus and those he trained. The second type of biblical doctrine some disregard, concern mere Christian beliefs. While hairs can be illicitly split in theology, there are clear scriptural demarcations to be held. Some so essential we are commanded to repel dissenters (2 John 1:10). Creeds and list have been formulated to help, such as the Apostle’s Creed and the Nicene Creed.

Recently, I had an encounter and discussion with a couple who disagreed with the trinitarian doctrine. In the following show, I give biblical and historical reasons why Jesus really is God. Enjoy!

  1. St. Mayhew 16:16 – 18 The Lord Jesus accepted that he was the Christ, believed he was; so he was the first Christian. He acknowledges this revelation in St.Mathews 16:16-18
    16And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Some might say well Jesus cannot follow himself. Uet he Followed the Spirit of God with in himself. The Bibls says the Spirit of tjs most high is with him without measure. Jesus Believed in himself too. In the sense that he reconized and indirectly said he was God also. I and the father are one, I am the light of the world, I am the Good shephered, I am the door no man can come unto the father except through me, I am the way and the Truth! I am the bread of life. Ian the living warter, I am alpha and Omega. Giving these statment along with the event that took place in the Gospels of Jesus healing a man and telling him his sins are forgiven and the woman who was about to be stoned for halotry. The Pharisees knew that he was claiming diety and for this they said it was blasphemous and sought ways to get him killed! Jesus also said he is alpha and Omega and rhat he has the power to judge all things and the power of life and death, That he is the ressurection, The first and the last. That he was in existetance before Abraham! Now all these are resevered porogatives of God! So he believed in himself also that is his own words he spoke coming from his own person that is to say. Although God the father comissioned him what to speak and do. Jesus said I and the father are one! He told Peter that when you have seen him you have seen the father in the since that he us the exact expression and representive of the father but he is God in flesh. Because he is the word of God
    1 John 1:1-8. Jesus was Baptised, Christians have to be baptised, he recieved the Spirit, Christiand Have to recieve the Holy Spirit. Jesus accepted the work of the cross. Christians Habe to accept the work of the cross. Jesus believed that he would be raised from the dead and he was! Christians must accept this also! Jesus prayed to the father Christian’s must also. Jesus follwed his own teachings Christians are supposed to follow Christs doctrine!

    Further more when Moses encountered The Most High at the burning bushel. He asked The Lord God who shall I say sent me what name shalk I give the Egyptians as ti declare these things. And the Lord responded to Moses and said ” I am that I am tell them I am has sent the!” Exodus3:14. Jesus Was claiming diety by using the prefix title of I am!
