Now, I don’t know about you, I only believe what Jesus and His prophets and disciples taught.
Notice we MUST believe Jesus is the only Son of God. John 3:18.
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. John 3:18
However MOST believe Jesus is GOD, or THREE called the TRINITY, so how will they be SAVED?
The scriptures are the Biblical facts, and therefore teach we MUST believe Jesus is the only Son of God. John 3:18.
Notice there is NOTHING in the whole Bible saying we MUST believe Jesus is GOD.
As there are NO such teachings saying one MUST believe Jesus is GOD, or that GOD is THREE persons, or GOD and His SON are THREE called the TRINITY, which is clear proof alone that most have been deceived and believe what is not taught anywhere in the Bible.
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31,32.
Jesus made this very clear that we must believe and follow His teachings.
And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. John 10:38.
So Jesus would have made this very clear that we must believe He is GOD, that is if He was GOD, and yet He NEVER, EVER, said or made such a claim.
John said: Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 1 John 1:9.
The simple answer is NO.
The only people who say and teach Jesus is GOD, are people who have been deceived, and teach what Jesus did not say and teach.
So who did Jesus say He was?
The simple answer is in John 10:36:
do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?
Notice in John 10:33 how the Jews wrongly accused Jesus for claiming to be GOD: The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.”
Then just a few verses later notice how Jesus did NOT say, yes you are correct, I AM GOD, but notice instead how Jesus RECTIFIED the Jews by saying: ‘I am the Son of God’?
Notice how Jesus very clearly ‘excludes Himself’ from being THE GOD, by saying: the only true God, and Jesus Christ.
In this one statement in John 17:3, from the very lips of Jesus, He confirms His GOD the Father is THE ONLY TRUE GOD.
And then below in John 20:31 Jesus again confirms He, Jesus is the Son of God and says nothing about being the GOD Himself or the same person as GOD the Father.
We then have St Paul confirming with Jesus in 1 Corinthians 8:6, below by saying: there is but one God, the Father, and one Lord Jesus Christ.
We then have an explosive statement below by St John in 1 John 5:5, confirming what a person needs to believe to overcome the world and be saved, by St John making it very clear, we must believe Jesus is the SON of GOD, and nothing about believing in the trinity or that Jesus is the GOD, or the same person as the GOD.
We now come to the greatest ‘commandment’ by Jesus clearly stating we must hear and understand: THE LORD GOD IS ONE.
I believe when Jesus said: I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE. John 10:30.
