Scripture was given that is clear in this matter, there are three in heaven the Father, the Word (Christ Jesus), and the Holy Ghost, they are one. I take the word of scripture over the word of any man or spirit, this is how we test the spirits.
Scripture was given showing Christ Jesus making himself of no repute, taking on the form of a servant, the likeness of men, but when he was in the form of God he thought it not robbery to be equal to God. It is not hard to understand why Christ Jesus would say, why do you call me good, there is no one good but God, or pray to the Father, or do many of the things we human christians do. because he humbled himself when he was in the form of a man.
Scripture was given that clearly shows Christ Jesus being called God. I can not make you believe the holy scripture, God will not make you believe the scripture. This is what i believe and scripture backs that belief up in my eyes.
One last scripture showing two of the three in the Godhead.
King James Version (KJV)
"Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias."
"While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him."
"And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid."
"And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid."
"And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only."
"And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the
This is GOD the master of Universes' son talking and still you will not listen. Amazing!
Are you really a Christian if you totally ignore Jesus' words?
Where does Jesus say, explicitly, "I am not good"? Show me, because that verse definitely does not say what you proclaim. More deception!
Let's read the verses surrounding the one you listed:17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.
19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.’”
20 “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”
21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
22 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.
That verse does not show Jesus denying His own goodness or His membership of the Godhead, in fact, it does quite the opposite.
What Jesus is essentially saying to the rich young ruler, "Do you know what you are implying? You say I am good; but only God is good; therefore, you realize that you are identifying me with God?"
Jesus is hinting at His own deity(since the man called Him "good").
But the point Jesus' reply was not to draw attention to His deity, but to help the rich young ruler understand that in absoluteness, only God is good and that he can have much more with the Lord than legal obedience. He can have a relationship, “treasures in heaven” as it were.
OMG Koffee how anyone can draw your conclusion is beyond me.
I guess it shows indoctrination and man made dogma works.
You ignore 99% of what Jesus says and misquote the rest.
Never mind... John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
If jesus is GOD I guess you must believe Jesus and GOD are lying here.
