David you said the following:

prove to me that Jesus is not God.

David did know that Satan (devil) offered Jesus the Planet Earth if he bow down and worshiped him. But Jesus said "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.' "(Matthew 4:8-10)". Now the funny thing is why Satan would offer Jesus planet Earth if he knew that it was Jesus own creation because the polytheist Trinitarian pagans often call Jesus as the "Creator of the Universe", or "GOD the Father". Let us look in the following verses:

"Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor."All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me." Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.' "(Matthew 4:8-10)"

"Fear the LORD your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name. (Deuteronomy 6:13)"


There are three logical problems with the polytheist trinity paganism in these verses:

1- Notice how Satan told Jesus "if you will bow down and worship me." It is crystal clear that Satan knew Jesus as a Messenger from GOD Almighty, and not GOD Almighty Himself. Otherwise, he wouldn't dare to tell his Creator that.

2- Notice Jesus' response to Satan: "Away from me Satan! For it is written 'Worship the LORD your God, and serve Him only". Jesus here was clearly directing Satan to GOD Almighty; a being other than Jesus. Jesus did not tell Satan "worship me".

3- Deuteronomy 6:13 is the verse that Jesus referred to when he said "For it is written". However, Deuteronomy 6:13 says "and take your oaths in his name." What is that Name? It is Yahweh or Jehovah. Jesus never even once was ever called Jehovah or Yahweh! Not even once.

David do you need more help about understanding that Jesus is not God?
