Proverbs 8:34-36 Blessed is the man who hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my door posts. For whoever finds me finds life, and will obtain favor from Yahweh. But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul. All those who hate me love death.” Psalm 84: 11 For Yahweh God is a sun and a shield. Yahweh will give grace and glory. He withholds no good thing from those who walk blamelessly. 12 Yahweh of Armies, blessed is the man who trusts in you. 1 John 5:5 Now who is the one overcoming the world, except the one believing that Jesus is the Son of God?

Mark 10:18. As Jesus is Good Is Jesus GOD?

 Mark 10:18. As Jesus is Good Is Jesus GOD?

Here is a scripture that many believe proves Jesus is GOD.

Mark 10:18

Let's also have a look at a comment I received below:

In Mark 10:18 Jesus says that there is none good but God. This is in response to someone who comes up to Him asking a question, calling Him "good teacher." Jesus responds by saying "Why do you call me good? Only God is good!" There have been several people, including some Jews, who have said this verse shows Jesus is not God. However, what they fail to realize that Jesus acknowledges Himself as good. In John 10:11 Jesus acknowledges that He is the good shepherd. According to Mark 10:18 this makes Him God. If the JW's can show a verse calling anyone good who is not God, I will show you a contradiction. People in the Bible have been called "righteous" or "perfect", but this is implied with forgiveness from God. Can the JW's show me any verse saying that anyone who is not God is "good?" Using that word? I make a gentleman's friendly wager that they can't. I defy any JW reading this to show me a verse calling anyone who isn't God "good!" The thing that most JW's fail to acknowledge is that Jesus is called "good" using that very word.

Now I have done my own research to see HOW and WHY many Christians seem to believe Mark 10:18 proves Jesus is GOD.

Lets have a closer LOOK at Mark 10:18.

Mark 10:18. GOD ALONE!

Berean Literal Bible

👇

And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good,  👉except God alone.👈

Did you see what I saw here 👉except God alone.👈

The Greek word for ALONE tells us in the Strong's Concordance means:

heis: ONE

Original Word: εἷς, μία, ἕν

Part of Speech: Adjective

Transliteration: he is

Phonetic Spelling: (hice)

Definition: ONE.

Usage: ONE.

Mark 10:18 Greek text

So here in Mark 10:18 Jesus is confirming how His Father GOD is The ONLY One True GOD ALONE by Himself, and Jesus is excluding Himself from being GOD by Jesus saying  👉except God alone.👈

To be ALONE, means to be ONE being, ONE PERSON, by yourself, on your own, which is not difficult to understand, for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear as Jesus said!

What Jesus tells us here in Mark 10:18 confirms with countless other teachings throughout the whole Bible including what Jesus tells us in places like John 17:3 

Berean Literal Bible

Now this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.

As we have also seen, there is nothing whatsoever saying GOD is TWO or THREE persons called the Trinity!

May I now leave you with our brother Kel from the Trinity Delusion.

Conclusion👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇

Jesus clearly denies he is God here in this verse by insisting only God is good. Since there is only one God, his God, Jesus was necessarily referring to HIS God. Being addressed as "GOOD Teacher," Jesus responds that no one is GOOD but God alone. He is responding to being called "Good TEACHER." Hence, the subject matter is not moral goodness but his good teaching. Jesus tells us many times his words and his teaching were not his own but the Father's who sent him. By contrasting himself with God, and by saying no one is good but God alone with respect to his teachings, Jesus was denying that he is God.

It is written in the prophets, "And they shall all be taught by God."

Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to me.
