Jesus is not God

שְׁמַ֖ע יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל יְהֹוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֵ֖ינוּ יְהֹוָ֥ה אֶחָֽד
Sh’ma Yisra’el Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad.
Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One.

(Deut.6:4)

The aim of this page is to help Christians suffering from “cognitive dissonance”, and that is around 97% of all Christians. It is recommended to look at the relevant biblical passages with a therapist who has renounced the Whore of Babylon. The Whore of Babylon is the Catholic Church, and its children include the Reformed, Protestant and Evangelical churches, as well as the vast majority of the so called “free evangelical” churches, including the Jewish-Messianic community. In addition, the therapist should interpret the New Testament from a Judeo-Hebraic point of view, rather than the Greek-Hellenistic view commonly found among pastors.

#01 Good Master | #02 Unitarism vs. Trinity


#01 Good Master (by R.Luque)

“That Yeshua (Jesus) never regarded himself as God is most obvious from his reply when hailed as “good master”: “Why do you call me good? There is none good but one, God” (Mk.10:18; Lk.18:19). When the disciples would know the exact time of the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven, he tells them: ‘That day and that hour no man knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the son (Messiah), but the Father (God) only’ (Mt.24:36). Yeshua is thus not omniscient: he and the Father are not equal in knowledge. When we remember that, in the Garden of Gethsemane, he begs the Father to let the cup pass from him; and that, during the crucifixion, he cries out, ‘My God, my God, why has You forsaken me!’ – it is prefectly manifest that in no sense did he look upon himself as God. Like every Pharisaic Jew he believed in the absolute unity of God, and he turned to God in time of trouble.”

#02 Unitarism vs. Trinity (by R.Luque)

“Whoever knows the development of the history of dogma knows that the image of God in the primitive church was unitary, and only in the second century did it gradually, against the doctrine of subordinationism, become binary. For the church fathers such as Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, and Tertullian, Jesus is subordinated to the Father in everything, and Origen hesitated still to direct his prayer to Christ, for, as he wrote, that should properly be to the Father alone. At this point he referred to the words of Jesus in the Gospel of John: “The Father who has sent me is greater than I.”
The total picture which arises from history is almost like an arithmetic progression: In the first century God is still monotheistic in good Jewish fashion. In the second century God becomes two-in-one; from the third century on God gradually becomes threefold. Only in the fourth century, however, does the elevation of the Holy Spirit to a special hypostasis with its own value take place. Moving from the “Binity” of the primitive church, in the year 381 at the Second Council of Constantinople, against the heavy resistance of a whole series of church fathers, the divine triunity of the full doctrine of the Trinity is canonized.”
~ (Pinchas Lapide, “Jewish Monotheism and Christian Trinitarian Doctrine” (Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1981), pp. 39-40.)
