It was impossible for Jesus to sin, because Jesus is God in the flesh & God cannot sin.
---Jerry on 12/28/08


Jesus was tempted, but NEVER sinned. Jesus was NOT a sinner, and by His very nature could NOT sin. Those that believe that He did sin, are believing a LIE straight from Hell. Read your Bibles people, don't go by man's opinion (including Pastors or Ministers of the Gospel), or you will be decieved. Check it out for yourself, don't just listen to a Pastor/Minister and believe he/she is right just because they are educated and licensed. The Holy Spirit is the ONLY one who should be educating you, and the Bible is the ONLY book to go by.

Jesus COULD have sinned... there were many temptations put before him... but HE choose to turn away from the sins, he knew what his Father had instore for Him. Making Him sinless. This was the only way HE was able to die on the cross for our sins. This is why He is the ONLY way!!!
---Steph on 11/30/08


---Marty I like your answer on this question very much. I have had many discussions about this question over the years. But your answer gave me a brand new approach to rebutting those who believe that it was possible for Jesus to sin!!
---mima on 11/30/08


In my reading of scripture it is clear to me that Jesus could not have sinned.

So what was the temptation for if he could not fail?

An old brother in the Lord gave me a great illustration to understand this.

If we have a piece of pure gold and perform a scientific test to determine its purity we will see that it is pure gold. If we test it over and over agian the same results occur - pure gold.

We run the test to validate its purity. Was there ever a chance it could fail - no.

God allowed Satan to temp the Lord so we could see His purity.

We have a Savior that has been and will always be the Holy one of God.
---Marty on 11/30/08




Irene, thanks for the encouragement but I want you to know it took many years and painful trials to come to the understanding I have of who Jesus really is. Give God the glory for revealing Himself to me (us all) amen? Jesus our precious Savior bless you bountifully in grace, wisdom, faith and fruit!
---Gabriel on 7/30/08


I believe what---Mark_V. says about Jesus nature to be exactly correct.
---mima on 7/30/08


Wayne, I agree with you..but these people here need to see the TRUTH.

Gos is not a Trinitarian god, there is only ONE God Yahweh.

Jesus and his Father are TWO DISTINCT BEINGS, One is a spirit the other if a glorified man, they are ONE IN UNION- Mind, purpose and will.

The spirit of God(the holy spirit) was IN CHRIST, we are ALL vessels of God, God lives in us, but ONLY JESUS had the FULLNESS IN GOD IN HIM.

God is not a trinity, Jesus is not God, and we are not gods, just because the spirit of God dwell IN US, for there can only be ONE God, and ONE MEDIATOR A MAN he's name Jesus, he too is also SUBJECT to God!
---gracynluv on 7/30/08


Wayne, I said you needed the Holy Spirit to discern Scripture. The Son is called the Son for one primary reason and that is because He bears the same Nature as the Father. It is to make sure that we understand. It's a concession to us as human beings because the Father didn't create the Son. There never was a time when there was only a Father until He had the Son. And there never was a mother. Those are simply terms to identify, and did so for the Jewish mind, "shared nature" A son bears the nature of his father. And that is simply a way for God to establish that the Nature of Jesus Christ is the same as the Nature of God. When reading the O.T. you see God as Father of the nation of Israel because He brought it into existence.
---Mark_V. on 7/30/08


Wayne: When you see Him (God) as Father of mankind it's because He created mankind. But when you come to the N.T. God is identified as the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, not to indicate that God created Him, or brought Him into existence, like He did Israel and the human race, but to indicate that He is of the same Nature. And, Jesus defined that very clearly when He said, "If you have seen Me, You've seen the Father. I and and Father are one. I work and the Father works, and there's no difference." When you line up the Father's works, the Son's works, and the Holy Spirit works, they are all the same. In Scripture God is our Savior, Jesus Christ is our Savior and the Holy Spirit is our Savior since He brings life.
---Mark_V. on 7/30/08




Gabriel,you explained this very beutifully and poetically.Yes Jesus,Father God and the Holy spirit are three in one.They are all three different individuals but they are all one as the God head.In other words,they are all on the same level of deity.God the Father,God the son,God the holy ghost.Jesus is the mediator between God and man.He is our savior.God is the creator and he is our Father,the Holy spirit is our comforter.He anoints us with the oil of joy,gladness and goodness.God bless.
---Irene on 7/29/08


This is what people struggle with, "If He couldn't sin then how could temptation be "legitimate?" That's really the issue and the answer to that is very simple. Have you ever been tempted and not sinned? Of course. Yes, and you have been tempted and sinned. But there have been many times when you haven't. Now was that temptation "illigitimate" because you did not sin? Of course not, sometimes that temptation was very strong. In fact it just so happens that for Christ who never sinned, He must have known temptation to its limits. The very fact He didn't sin meant that He endured temptation at extreme levels, since He was the one Satan would want to sin more then us.
---Mark_V. on 7/29/08


Could Jesus have sinned? Hebrews 4:15 shows that Jesus overcame, here, "without sin". So, we can not overcome exactly-literally as Jesus did.

And Jesus says, "All things that the Father has are Mine." (in John 16:15) So, the Father's throne IS Jesus' throne. They are not disfunctional so They have to have separate thrones (o: They are "one", Jesus says, meaning they are perfectly in union and harmonious and able to *share*.

When Jesus speaks of God, God can mean the Supreme One, the Father who is supreme in *postition*, but not greater than Jesus in *divinity*. ALL He has, Jesus has, too . . . including divinity, if not exact position.
---Bill_bila5659 on 7/29/08


If someone is unable to do something, then that person can't be tempted to do it either. The Bible says Jesus was tempted in all things. So you figure it out.
---old_guy on 7/28/08


Wayne and grace have not the truth in them. I pity you both because if you have the truth then you would realize that Jesus is God is Jesus is the Holy Spirit is God is Holy Spirit is Jesus.they are inseparable. Jesus attested to the fact that "He thought it not robbery to be equal with God". We are not equal with God and therefore need the blood of Jesus to cover us. "he who has seen me has seen the father".. Read the bible in the spirit and pray for discernment. We must have the three (trinity) because God the father is the lover, Jesus the son is the loved and the Holy Spirit is the spirit of love between them. "in Jesus rests the fullness of the Godhead bodily"... Pray dear friends.
---Gabriel on 7/28/08


Gracy, I never said he was apart of a Trinity, the scripture you quoted proves what I have said, Jesus is not God. He was chosen by God and if we live the way he did we to will sit with him at his throne as he sits with the Father at his throne. You proved my point
---wayne on 7/28/08

Wayne..Also upon his resurrection he instructed Mary Magdalene not to cling to him, but to go and inform his followers that he would soon be, in his words, "ascending to [MY] FATHER AND YOUR FATHER, and to [MY] GOD AND YOUR GOD." These words of Jesus PROVE conclusively that he was not part of a trinity.

"He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on MY THRONE, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on HIS THRONE."

So vividly clear, there are TWO throne, TWO distinc beings, with a kingdom of there own.

Ro 8:32 HE (God) that spared not his own Son, BUT DELIVERED HIM UP FOR US ALL
---gracynluv on 7/28/08


Wayne, a lot of us are hung up in that Jesus is God. Scripture tells us so. Let me also say, this is not an RCC problem. They believe in the Trinity. They might have added many things through the ages but that is not one of them. This comes from the Word of God.

But in order to understand it you have to have the Spirit of God. For "The carnal mind is enmity against God" Rom. 8:7. The lost hate this Divine perfection of God just as much as they are compelled to acknowledge it. They wish there might be no Witness of their sins, no Searcher of their hearts, no Judge of their deeds. They seek to banish such a God from their thoughts. Acknowledge Him as Savior, as much as you acknowledge God as Savior.
---Mark_V. on 7/27/08


Christ in flesh was not a god ...it was possible for Christ to sin in the flesh ...if it were not possible then salvation is a hoax

if it were impossible for Christ to have sinned then He lied when He told us He overcame the world in John 16:33


Hebrews 4:15 ...have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin

Christ was tempted and overcame ...He did this because of the Power (Gods Spirit) dwelling in His mind John 5:30
---Rhonda on 7/26/08


Grace,

Scripture also states, that God said, this day have I begotten thee, I shall be a Father to Him, and He shall be a son to me. Sounds more like an adoption to me. Hence jesus is not god. We must have the testiomony of Jesus, and keep the commandments of God. All of scripture shows the difference between God and Jesus.

I love how people pick 1 or 2 verses and build a doctrine around it. look up the translations of the most ancient manuscripts. The trinity is not there. No one wants to study any of this, they would rather believe what someone else tells them . God says my people perish for lack of knowledge. And the christain community is perishing. There are alot of churchs but as far as believers not to many. The people say we believe in verse A but not in verse B. God is not the author of confusion. God is ONE, I know Jesus is the Messiah, He sits at the right hand of God, this is truth, but He is not God.
---wayne on 7/25/08


If you are true believers, then you will look this up. Alot of the verses in our bibles are not in the most ancient manuscripts, so alot of the beliefs and doctrines are built upon lies. I think its funny how christains celebrate pagan holidays in which God said not to, but wont celebrate the Holy Days God approves of. Christains say they believe Jesus is God, but wont do what He did, wont keep the law He kept, wont love the way He loved. He is our example, our path to the Father, but alot of christains dont wish to follow that path. Its a shame, no wonder the world is in this mess.
---wayne on 7/25/08


Wayne,

Basically there are two paths in life, the wide path and the narrow path.

The world and its ways are the wide path - the path most taken.

The narrow path, the path God offers us, is the path that leads to righteousness. FEW FIND it.

The one who anointed is the Father, the one who was anointed is the Son, and he was anointed with the Spirit who is the anointing.

"God ANOINTED Jesus of Nazareth WITH the Holy Spirit AND with power"Acts 10:38

This is the simple truth, but MOST PEOPLE would rather take the "WIDE PATH" accepting 'by all or most denominations for hundreds of years'

They hear But they DO NOT hear GOD -who is in heaven SAYING "This is MY BELOVED Son"
---gracynluv on 7/25/08


I have a difficult choice to make. Am I to trust what has been accepted by all or most denominations for hundreds of years, and what I see written in the Bible, or am I to trust an anonymous poster named 'Wayne' who sets himself up as some kind of insider who knows the truth. I think I will ignore Wayne and advice others to do the same. Is it so difficult to understand? God is a huge being and has always had one part that is human, His Son, and because this man was of God he was filled with the Holy Spirit. The same Holy Spirit that was in Genesis on the waters. This man, Jesus was there with God and will be coming back to earth in the future. This man will judge the world and give believers eternal life. Which parts don't you like?

Frances,

1 cor 15 states that Jesus himself will be subjected so that God can be all in all, so God is going to subject himself???? i do not think so, Jesus is not God. He was a man. God is not 3 in 1, He is one, God in the Old Testament told Moses Iam not a man. The earliest christains never stated that Jesus was God in the flesh, but the rcc mixed pagan beliefs with that of the Gospels. Its in history, but no one wishs to say they can be wrong. Christains are wrong saying Jesus is God. Scripture always makes a distinction between them.
---wayne on 7/23/08


The relationship of God and Jesus is like that of a parent and a child, but moreso. What parent does not understand that love for their child, no matter what is wrong with their child (and in Jesus case he was perfect). When the child asks 'Do you love me?' the parent will say 'Why do you ask that, son (or daughter). You ARE my life. Without you I would have no purpose in life.' It is just normal human love to identify very strongly with a child of your own, so that if anything bad happens to the child, you would rather it had happened to you. A parent would find it hard to outlive that child.
---frances008 on 7/23/08


Jesus was in a relationship with God His Father, as a Son. We call him the firstfruit, and Jesus promised that we too could be God's sons and daughters. But Jesus is different because we humans while on earth can pray to the Father in the Name of Jesus and know that (under the right conditions) JESUS will do whatever we ask. We are told we Christians will do greater things than Jesus did whilst on earth. This does not make us gods. However Jesus was/is/will be revealed as God. How is it so difficult to conceive? Some priests and the Pope (especially) believe that they are God present on earth. They are wrong. However they think that and nobody corrects them. But if Jesus says he is God, then all have a problem. Why is that?
---frances008 on 7/23/08


The reason why Jesus is not called God while on earth, but only hints are given (Why do you call me good? Only God is good) is because God has to stay in His postion as present everywhere, far bigger than a human being, all knowing, in control of everything. If Jesus was God Himself and no other was also God, then we would have been able to kill God. But God raised Jesus from the dead. It is not difficult to understand if you want to. All this is written in Scripture so that you should know it.

Jesus was 100 per cent human, which is why it says he was God Made Man - with all our weaknesses but with the nature of God His Father. He was scared at times, he was tempted at times, he loved, he wept, he felt compassion, he felt anger. He overcame all that, and showed us that we too could do the same. I do not mean to blaspheme but he was one tough and cool man. The man. The real deal. The perfect human.
---frances008 on 7/23/08


Alot of you are hung up on this Jesus was God. Thats an excuse, He was tempted and God cannot be tempted. Then you say well, He was God in human form, doesnt matter, He was tempted. Then you bring up verses such as He said He was one with God, He also prayed to have the Apostles to be one with God, does that mean they are God too. Jesus was a man set apart by God, who God did miracles through, read Acts. Jesus said that those who believe will do more miracles then He did, does that mean we are God. Wake up, there is only one God, the same one Jesus prayed to.
---wayne on 7/23/08

Jesus was tempted all through His ministry. But unlike us He was sinless. In other words, Jesus did not fall for Satan's wiles. And when He was raised from the dead, He descended into hell and bragged to the demons that there evil schemes did not WORK. Jesus, "I love your style".

Do you know what you are doing? I don't think so. You are trying to make God out to be just like humans which He has created. Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man. The Holy Spirit pretected baby Jesus so He was not born with a sinful nature. Jesus was different from ordinary man. Jesus was God and Jesus still is God. You can never, ever change that fact of Salvation or life or death.

Absolutely he could have sinned. If, Jesus could not have sinned, he would not have preached a sin free message. Therefore, keeping in tact our free will to make a choice whether to serve him or serve satan. So, for us who are here now who have sinned and continue to live in sin, Jesus method is the only way out, repent and ask for forgiveness, he is faithful to forgive us of our sins. Simply just believe, how wonderful is this hope.

I think as Jesus was fully human and fully God he was tempted and able to choose to sin. However beacuse He had a deep love for His father he chose NOT to. Otherwise it would make His example seem impossible to follow. As I can never be sin-free until I am untied with Him in eternity. But the more I know of Him, the more I love Him the less I want to 'sin' as its less attractive than He is..... Sorry for waffle Im not good and expressing things!!

Dear all,
Jesus could NOT have sinned; He is God; God is Holy!! He only does His Fathers will, not as a puppet, but as His Son!! He endured temptation for us to realize that we are free from the bondage of sin! As Pastor McGuinness alleges, With fishing, as long as the bass stays in his log, he wont be enticed by the lure, but as soon as he comes out, he is susceptible to the temptation!!

Jesus had to have been able to sin in order for his presence as man to make sense, or else he would have had an unfair advantage over us. He was comparable to the pre-fall Adam, and thus possessed human nature BEFORE the fall. In this manner, he and Adam were similar. By one good man with choice, sin entered the world, and by another good man with choice, sin left the world.

Spencer,
Read what you have written again. The question aside, it does not make any sense.
"If Jesus could have sinned it means He could have failed. If He failed then God is a Liar."
If Jesus had failed, then God would be a liar. But Spencer, He did not fail. So God is not a liar. Your logic is severely flawed.

I have heard many times that Jesus could have sinned. I personally do not believe so. Had Jesus been capable of sinning then He would have had to have had the sin nature and then even as a tiny child He would, like all other children, have "naturally" sinned. But Jesus did not sin, He was perfect.

If you say thast Jesus was incapable of sinning, are we not taking away some of His perfection? If we say that we say He was incapabole of sin, there then was no virtue in Him when He resisted temptation. To take it further, He was incapable of avoiding going through with His sacrifice, just a puppet killed by Pilate on the say-so of His father.
But we know Jesus sacrificed Himself willingly for us.
