Cliff, how can you have read the Bible and have missed Jesus is called BOTH the Son of Man, man, born of Mary, and the Son of God, God-Spirit, He for whom a body was made Hebrews 10:5.

That the man Jesus "grew in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and men." Luke 2:52, is to be expected from a child who knew who he was from 12 years old, see Luke 2:49. See also 1 Samuel 2:26 where the "grow in stature" words are applied to the growing Samuel.

If anyone is "frozen" tis not I!

You need to come to an understanding of the whole of Scripture.

I am leaving in a short while for a few days away. I am sure you will be here preaching scepticism, and cynicism (sadly) when I return!
---Warwick on 5/23/13


Cliff Thomas called Jesus 'ho Theos' i.e. The God. The ancient Greeks coined this term to separate the one true God from any gods. Therefore if you are correct Thomas blasphemed and Jesus commended him! No way Jose!
---Warwick on 5/23/13


Warwick, Consider this. Jesus said to Mary" Luke 2.49 Didn't you know I must be about my Father's business" and he wasn't referring to Joseph! (was it not "His" business?
vs 53 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and favor with God????
This is impossible if he already was God!
Somehow your mind is frozen on trinity and needs thawing!
---1st_cliff on 5/23/13


Warwick, Surely you're aware that neither Lord nor God are the divine "names"
God's name is YHVH and the son of course is Jesus.
God (mighty one) and Lord(master) are "what" He is not "who" He is! Is your name "man"??
Using God's name in a worthless way is indeed serious but Thomas never spoke God's name!
Even Paul said "there are lords many and gods many"
The English parliament includes the "House of Lords"

In the Bible also GOD has foretold the future in the Past and tells us about our future today.
---Samuelbb7 on 5/22/13

yes, this is somthng unique to the bible, as compared to other "spiritual / religion" books.
---francis on 5/23/13


Christianity is not based on inner personal experiences but actual events. JESUS was born live died and rose again. Jerusalem and all of the Bible tell true events that actually happened in history.

In the Bible also GOD has foretold the future in the Past and tells us about our future today.

I see that people here on stuck on the Trinity being true. It is true and most understand that.

John 5:23 "Honor"- (1)

First (and no small point) is the fact that neither here nor in any other scripture, is instruction given to honor the Holy Spirit.

Please explain.


Secondly:

The Greek for "as or just as" is (kathos). Thayer's lexicon defines kathos as:

"[A]ccording as, just as, even as: in the first member of comparison...Jn....v.23... According as i.e. in proportion as, in the degree that (No reference to John 5:23 for this latter usage.), pp. 314, 5.

"Kaqwv"...as, in the manner that...how, in what manner...according as...inasmuch as [because, since] Jn. 17. 2"- Analytical Greek Lexicon,
p. 208.

Continued
---scott on 5/22/13


"Honor" (2)

Kathos, at John 5:23, according to Grimm, a Lutheran, from whose work in Greek and Latin, Thayer translated and added, (Thayers additions, which are relatively few, are set off by brackets) has the import of, in the same way, not, to the same degree.'

An example in Scripture showing something can be done in the same way, but not to the same degree is:

"[B]earing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a compliant against any one, just as [kathos] the Lord forgave you."
Col. 3:13, NASV.

Can we forgive to the same perfect degree that Jesus Christ can?

The same way, not to the same degree.

I called you foolish, but only because Im to love you.
But there are things beyond foolish!
What? Did you not know? Did you not hear?

(I marvel that ye are so soon removed) from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another, but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

But though (we, or an angel from heaven), preach any (other gospel) unto you than that which (we have preached unto you), (let him be accursed.)

(As we said before), (so say I now again), If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, (let him be accursed.)

Cliff you should know using the Lord's name in vain is condemned in the 10 Commandments. Commenting upon this Gill says "Thou shall not take the name of the Lord God in vain,.... Make use of the name Lord or God, or any other name and epithet of the divine Being, in a light and trifling way, without any show of reverence of him, and affection to him, whereas the name of God ought never to be mentioned but in a grave and serious manner..."

Thomas did not speak in vain-the text says "Thomas said to him."

Thomas's did not say -I believe you have risen from the dead-but acknowledged Jesus as his Lord and God. Jesus' response was to say you have seen and you believe. He can only be reacting to what Thomas said.
---Warwick on 5/23/13


Warwick, You're trying to fix it IE "Because you have seen me you have believed ie That I am your Lord and your God!" NO no no "believed that I have risen from the dead" (that was the issue)
What crime is an exclamation?? (I hear people commit this crime every day!)
---1st_cliff on 5/22/13


Scott, Jesus says to honour Him as God is honoured, that we dishonour the Father if we do otherwise-John 5:23. Knowing your propensity for cut and paste theology I do so with Gill's comments "even as they honour the Father, that the same honour and glory may be given to the one, as to the other, which must never have been done was he not equal with him, since he gives not his glory to another Isaiah 42:8 "I will not give my glory to another." Jesus says He shared God's glory from the beginning-John 17:5. But God says He will not share His glory-contradiction? Not if we accept the Father and Son are 1 and the same God, who obviously deserve equal honour, and glory. No one else is so addressed in Scripture.
---Warwick on 5/22/13


"only you and your cohorts insist He's not "Christ Son of the living God"" 1stCliff

You poor lost and deluded soul, "Christ the Son of the living God" is a given to anyone who's a Christian. So too is the title "Son of God", a given.

The contention with you is your outright rejection that Jesus Christ is God, that's the issue, understand? It's you and your cohorts who's guided by the deceiver himself that's deluded. But then, even the deceiver's cohorts acknowledges that Christ is God (Matthew 8:29) unlike you and your earthly cohorts.

Here's the wisdom of God, even the devils who acknowledges Christ is the Son of God are still going to hell. Go figure out...

BLOG QUESTION: How does Christianity differ from most religions?

The Holy Koran of The Moorish Science Temple of America

Chapter VI: Life and Works of Jesus in India Among the Moslems

3. When Jesus stood among the Jewish priests and read and spoke, Ravanna heard and was amazed. And when he asked who Jesus was, from whence He came and what He was, Chief Hillel said: "We call this child the Day Star from on high, for He has come to bring to men a light, the light of life, to lighten up the way of men and to redeem His people of Israel."

So the mislims do teach about Jesus. the difference is that in Christainity Jesus is Creator, and redeemer

"What does "worship" mean in the two (KJV) verses?" scott

"But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth." John 4:23,24, "It is the spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." John 6:65

Worship in the Holy Bible has only one reference if you're a Christian. Unless you're a pagan or heathen, then it means something else as you're implying.
---christan on 5/22/13


Cliff read John ch. 20:24 on and you will see Thomas demands physical proof (see and touch) or he will not believe Jesus has risen from the dead. A week later Jesus challenged Thomas, presenting him with the very physical proof Thomas demanded. In response 'Thomas said to Jesus "My Lord and my God."' In response to "My Lord and MY God" Jesus replied "Because you have seen me you have believed" i.e. That I am your Lord and God!

You would have us believe "My Lord and My God" was just an exclamation but if it were so Thomas has committed a serious crime and Jesus commended him for it!
---Warwick on 5/22/13


Cliff you miss the underlying point. The man recognized JESUS as a teacher. But JESUS is pointing out that if he recognizes JESUS as truly good then he needs to know who JESUS is as Peter proclaimed him. The Jewish recognized that JESUS was proclaiming himself to be GOD. Why don't you?

I have read the Quran in English. I have also read many books by Leaders of many different denominations. I have read books written against the Seventh day Adventist church. Reading helps me to think and understand. I also know exactly why I believe. I was an agnostic now by reading I became a born again Christian.

1 Cor 9:22 I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
francis
Now show us this in the Quran.

Or better yet, show us this:
Act_4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Or:
Son of God
First begotten son
Anything that says The Lord Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world
Even forgiveness of sin

The Quran came from an angel called himself, Gabriel.

The Bible came from God, God who called himself God.

Satan has had over 2,000 years to divide christiandom up into tens of thousands of denominations each having their own rituals, traditions, ways of living, different gospels, and interpretations of the bible.

Today's church, the worldly denominations, is completely different than the church Christ created. The true church of Christ does not belong to this world or anything in it - not buildings, nor furniture, nor works of art, nor statues, etc.

LOVE, true and genuine, of God and others is your only ticket to the coming Kingdom of God. LOVE, as in the verb form, is without worldly assets. Do an online KJV bible search for "encourag," "comfort," and "one another."

One other thing: prophesy.

Revelation 3:9 (King James Version):

Muslims like many anti bible scholars believe the Bible and especilly the New Testament is full of errors and false doctrine that Muhammed was commisioned by GOD to correct.

Muhammed takes phrases from the Bible and misuses them.

Today many modern preachers do not trust the Bible so they have no defence to present with their watered down gospel.

Fortunalty many Muslims have a watered down message also. The biggest problem is Radical Clerics who tell their followers to do what they are told without thinking. Which some Christian leaders also support. False leaders on both sides do not want people to actually think about what the Bible really says.

Christianity differs from ALL religions in that Christians follow the divinely inspired, true word of God (Bible). All others follow false teachings/doctrines of men.

Religion is man trying to explain (rationalize) a god or gods he doesn't really know. Christianity is God explaining Himself & establishing a relationship (making first contact) with anyone who is willing to hear & believe Him.

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Just as:
There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling, One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

"Christianity has as many religions as it does adherents." atheist

Christ warned of "false christs" that will arise after His death and resurrection, "For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ, and shall deceive many. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before."

The "many religions" you see in Christianity is basically rooted in the false christs being propagated. Indeed there are many false christs but only One True Christ. And as Jesus taught, only His elect will know and they will never be deceived.

Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Scripture declares, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."

Atheist Christianity isn't a religion, but a faith, faith in our Saviour Jesus Christ. When people follow Him and live as He commands we see love, joy, and peace. Not perfect love joy and peace, as man at his best is far from perfect.

However when we see people who follow the atheist 'god' history shows its consistent followers are savage butchers. Your ideological cousins in North Korea are a perfect example. They clearly show how true atheists live.

Further you make the unwarranted assumption that all those who blog here are Christian. Can you prove that or is if faith which guides you?

BTW while you are at it can you tell me what is the greatest contribution atheism has bestowed upon our suffering world?

I had rather say I am redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. Christianity includes many things that have nothing to do with Jesus, the Son of God, manifested in the flesh to save a lost sinner like me.

Francis Islam only has Jesus as a prophet. No greater or no more important
---Darlene_1 on 5/19/13

But they have Jesus
There are also denomination within Christendom that have Jesus, not as God

Maybe we should say that it is the role of Jesus within Christianity ( as redeemer and creator) that makes the difference?

Saint francis, speaks again!
Islam also has Jesus!

Yes, they have a man who was called Jesus.
I knew you could understand Islam.
You also have a Angel who was called Jesus.

Thanks, I just dont know what I do without you.
Lets see, no sin or sinning, the law, saint, Michael and now Islam.

I think you should change your sainthood to prophet.
And who know maybe one day even, no its too soon.

Really thank you!
You make it so easy to see what God is saying.

Who knows, maybe you are a saint, WOW!
Love You
Peace

Francis Islam only has Jesus as a prophet. No greater or no more important to getting to heaven than any other prophet. They don't accept He is the only son of God,God's Word made flesh ,or that He is our savior.

From reading these blogs it seems that Christianity has as many religions as it does adherents.

Grandma I think we could also think of Christianity as an adoption agency. Through Jesus and His shed blood we can repent and be adopted into the family of God,which is beyond wonderful. God Bless

Various religions offer forgiveness/salvation. Hindu tradition Krishna was born of a Virgin, crucified, descended into Hell, rose from the dead, etc.

Some Christians say Jesus' rising from the dead is His uniqueness but Scripture disagrees-Luke 16:31 "If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead." That is, unless people believe Genesis etc is historical truth they will not believe even if someone rises from the dead. Christ's uniqueness begins in Genesis 1, a sober, historical account which shows Jesus who died and rose again could save man because He made us, owns us, therefore set the rules, therefore can effectually die and rise again to save us.

As many have rightly said in this blog, Jesus is the difference between Christianity and other religions.

However, I remember a line from a old song which still rings true to me:

"They will know we are Christians by our love, by our love".

It must be our love for God, our love for other believers, and our love for our neighbors that separate us from all others. We must live out the love that would lay down His life for us to others. We must lay down our lives for Him and in so doing, lay down our lives for others.

Most religions have forgiveness, and change of heart and actions.

But Christianity has something unique

REDEMPTION: The reclaiming of the human race as His own.

Ephesians 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace,

While some religion look forward to reincarnation, and some to just living a good life on earth with nothing in the future, Christianity looks to the redemption of the body, not just forgiveness and sanctification, but redeeption

Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. (John 14:6) No one comes to the Father except through Him.
---willie_c: on 5/18/13


As TheSeg rightly said, the difference between Christianity and the rest (including denominations) is the Lord Jesus Christ. The Father teaches through His Word that salvation is only by His grace through faith in His Son. In short, there's no other salvation but through faith in Christ.

Whereas the rest (including denominations) teaches that you have to work for your salvation which is contradicted by Scripture.

"And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work." Romans 11:6
---christan on 5/18/13


Notwithstanding what has been written Christianity stands separate from all other religions, and is unique. In Christ we begin with Him the one and only Creator God who came to die and rise again to overturn the curse instituted by Adam's sin. And to give those who accept His free gift forgiveness and eternal life. If we ignore or forget that Jesus is our Creator God, then we miss the point of Him being the one and only living God.

God the creator, the redeemer, and sustainor is the one true God

1 Chronicles 16:26 For all the gods of the people [are] idols: but the LORD made the heavens.

Psalms 96:5 For all the gods of the nations [are] idols: but the LORD made the heavens.

"How does Christianity differ from most religions?"
Michael the difference is that Christianity is the only method of worship that worships a living Savior and follows a Leader that has been documented to have risen from the dead. "Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life." Rom 4:25>Tts 3:7

The number one reason is Jesus Christ.
You didn't know that?
Peace
---TheSeg on 5/18/13


I prefer to think of Christianity as the true relationship between the saved, born again, believers and God, not a religion

But, the main difference is that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is not dead, in a grave He arose, and was seen by His disciples, and then ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. The other religion's founders are dead, in a grave somewhere.
