This is not God

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: No contradictions

Submitted by Sohail (United Kingdom), Jan 13, 2007 at 09:40

How does this contradict? If there is only one who is good, and that is God, and since Jesus is God, Jesus is good. Jesus didn't even deny the statement, he wanted to have the rich man think about the magnitude of that statement.

In the same book, Jesus says that he is the Son of God. In the same book, John the Baptist says that Jesus is the spotless lamb.

Here is the same verse from the Gospel of Mark

18"Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good—except God alone. Mark 10:18

Jesus says to the rich man that he is not good but God alone is good.

This verse proofs Jesus is not the Son of God:

30I and the Father are one."

31Again the Jews picked up stones to stone him, 32but Jesus said to them, "I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?"

33"We are not stoning you for any of these," replied the Jews, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God."

34Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are gods'? 35If he called them 'gods,' to whom the word of God came—and the Scripture cannot be broken—

Jesus was quoting this verse from the Book of Psalms:

6 "I said, 'You are "gods";
you are all sons of the Most High.' Psalms 82:6

Moses was even made god by God Almighty:

1 Then the LORD said to Moses, "See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet. Exodus 7:1

Jesus is no God.
