Is Jesus God?



It seems that the only teaching left in Christianity is to believe that Jesus is the Almighty God and paid for our sins. That may sound straight forward, but it is not. As there are several reasons to believe that Jesus is not God, out of which we have written about the 7 most important ones. So you can either watch the video or read the text below the video, whichever way you prefer it.

Pictures of Jesus 1 - If Jesus is God, how can he die for our sins because God is Eternal?

The Christian philosophy is that God came in the form of Jesus to die for our sins because any human being could not pay for or die for our sins. As it is written in Ezekiel 18:20 that the son can not pay for the iniquity of the father, nor can the father pay for the iniquity of the son. Christians explain that therefore Almighty God himself had to come to die for our sins. But Almighty God is Eternal and He can not die. So if Almighty God can not die for sins, then there is no reason for Him to come to the World.

2 - Jesus Christ taught Monotheism, not Trinity

Jesus Christ never taught Trinity in the Bible. In fact the word 'Trinity' does not exist in the Bible and the verse closest to Trinity, 1 John 5:7 has been thrown out of the Revise Version of the Bible as an interpolation, a concoction and fabrication. According to the Biblical scholars, this verse, 1 John 5:7 does not exist in the earlier manuscripts of the Bible. But when Jesus was asked that what is the most important commandment, Jesus repeated what Moses had said earlier, "Shama Israelu Adonai Ila Hayno Adonai Ikhad" (Mark 12:29). Which means, "Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord."

3 - Jesus Christ never claimed to be God in the Bible

In fact, there is not a single clear statement in the complete Bible, where Jesus Christ himself says the words, "I am God" or "Worship me." Though there are some some verses in the Bible, which are misquoted to prove that he claimed divinity. But we have already answered such verses in our post "Did Jesus Christ Claim Divinity in the Bible?"

4 - Statements of Jesus contradict any suggestion of divinity

There are statements of Jesus Christ in the Bible, which contradicts any suggestion of divinity. As Jesus said, "my Father is greater than I" (John 14:28) and "I can of my own self do nothing." (John 5:30) Even furthermore when a man comes to Jesus and says "O my good master", Jesus replies, "why do you call me good, when only God is good." (Matthew 19:17) So leave aside being called God, Jesus even did not want to called good.

5 - Jesus was not perfect as Almighty God is supposed to be

Before you start reading this paragraph; let me tell you that as Muslims we believe Jesus was a mighty messenger of God and he would not do any of these things which the Bible attributes to him. But since the Christians believe in the Bible to be the word of God, that is why I am quoting all this. But as Muslims we do not believe any of this about Jesus.
The Bible attributes things to Jesus, which can not be attributed to the Almighty God. For instance, the Bible says that Jesus addressed his mother with a phrase he used to address a prostitute, "you women." The Bible also says that Jesus rushed the pigs down the steep bank into the river, where all the pigs drowned and died. (Matthew 8:32) That Jesus says in the Revelations 2:22-23 that he would kill the children of an adulteress, while the children themselves are innocent and it is their mother, who has committed adultery. Such actions and statements depict imperfection, while Almighty God is perfect.

6 - Jesus worshiped the Almighty God & prayed to Him

It is recorded in the Bible that Jesus Christ prostrated and prayed to the Almighty God. (Matthew 26:37-39) Now if Jesus was God, how could he prostrate, worship himself and pray to himself. All this proves that Jesus was not God and that Jesus himself worshiped the Almighty God.

7 - If you had nursed Mary, you would have never considered Jesus God

Imagine, if you were a nurse and attended Mary, when she delivered Jesus. Jesus would have been covered with all the dirt that every child is born with. Completely on your mercy to wash him and clean him of all the dirt. You would never consider him to be God.

These are some strong facts, which go against the alleged divinity of Jesus Christ. Christians claim that Jesus is God, so that they may prove how Jesus was crucified for their sins. But it can even proved from the Bible itself that Jesus Christ was not crucified. So even the only purpose of his divinity, his crucifixion is also doubtful.
