So, what Jesus explicitly said to Mary was a lie?

Allow me to explain what John wrote about the "Word." There surely are literal truths in scripture, but the Hebrew language is poetic, it's full of metaphors, similes and analogies. We recognize God by the words he used. Jesus was the fulfillment of God's words. The "Word" in John was an analogy to describe Jesus by the deeds he performed. A person learns right from wrong by the words he was taught. The person became the person from what he was taught as a young child.

Besides, how can a Father and the son be one? Only in spirit. My mom used to tell me, "you're just like your father."

No, I didn't because you wrote on 3/25/20:

"Steveng, I believe Jesus is God in the flesh."

That's why I wrote what I posted on 3/29/20.

Besides, was Jesus a ventriloquist when the Father spoke from heaven after Jesus was baptized in the river? Was Jesus praying to himself all the times he was praying? And on the cross when Jesus said, "Father, why have you forsaken me."?

So, is Jesus God himself?

Jesus explicitly said to Mary: "I ascend unto MY FATHER, and YOUR FATHER, and to MY GOD, and YOUR GOD." How do you explain this quote?

Kathr, how do you explain Jesus' exact quote to Mary? "I ascend unto MY FATHER, and YOUR FATHER, and to MY GOD, and YOUR GOD."

Kathr, you assume way too much. I do believe in the scriptures. I believe in the God of Abaham, Issac, and Jacob. I believe God sent his Son to this world.

You not understanding something, not knowing me personally, and spreading rumors about me is forbidden in the bible. If you are going to chastise me, do it in love - not hatred.

Search the bible yourself to see what I say is the truth not from some denominational "church" that you belong.

Kathr, you take the bible too literally. The Hebrew language is poetic. It's filled with metaphors, similes,and analogies. You don't God is a hen, do you?

When John was talking about the "Word" it wasn't God, but the words he spoke became reality. Technically, you can say all true christians are the word because we apply the words of God into doing the words of God. Denominational christians are only hearers of the word, not doers. By tithing to the church they are simply getting the church to do what we, as individuals, are suppose to do. The denominational church spends 85% of the money for maintaining the man made buildings.

Doing good is justified by doing God's word. The bible is full of examples

Denominational "christians" are nothing but hearers of the word. They think by attending a "church" service they are christians. They think by tithing they are doing good placing the resposibility on the "church" to do good escaping the responsibility from themselves.

Just for your information, the denominational churches spends eighty five percent of the donations to maintaining the man-made buildings.

The word "church" today has a completely different meaning than in Jesus' time. Today, it means a building or a denomination. "I didn't see you in church today." is an example.

I don't believe in supplements.

For example, vitamin C. Scientist think extracting only the vitamin C from an orange and putting it into a pill works. But it doesn't. It takes ALL the elements of the orange to make the vitamin C work properly in the body. One, of many, important element in an orange, or any plant, is boron. Boron is an activator which opens each cell of the body to accept vitamin C. Do some research of boron. Research has shown that you dont necessarily get the full benefits from isolated substances, such as vitamins and minerals supplements, as compared to when they occur naturally in foods. Another important element is zinc which makes the Vit C work harder within the cell.

Jesus is not God by what Jesus himself said. What did Jesus tell Mary? "Touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto MY FATHER, and YOUR FATHER, and to MY GOD, and YOUR GOD." These words were explicitly said by Jesus.

There are those who do not believe in God nor Jesus, but do the will of God not knowing it's the will of God. They are the ones who will populate the new earth.

Read Revelation chapter 20. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection

Kathr, first of all, your response to Haz is very unchristian.

Do you even know what a coronavirus is? A coronavirus infects the upper respiratory system. There are many coronaviruses: SARS, MERS, HIV, pneumonia, etc.

also, bats (and snakes) have been eaten by humans for thousands of years - even unto this day. Besides the Asian countries, South America, Eastern Europe, Africa, and along the Mississippi River in the United States.

There are a number of foods you can eat to protect you from coronaviruse: elderberry, echinacea, colloidal silver, and a few others. Do your research.

Jesus is not God by what Jesus himself said.

The good news is the coming of the Kingdom of God - nothing more, nothing less. Jesus and the apostles also taught about how to get there. We must set our eyes upon the kingdom.

Kathr, you may want to read Psalms 91 again very slowly. It is not about spiritual warfare - it's aobut protecting his people from getting hurt.

Within our group, as many such groups throughout the world, we encourage the members, young and old, to search the scripture to know first hand what the leaders are telling the truth or not.

Also, we know that 100% of our donations go to help the poor and needy, it comes straight from the heart. Denominational "churches" spend over 85% of their donations for the upkeep of their hard assets (building, landscaping, etc), paper assets (mortgage, insurance, etc.) and buisness expenses (marketing, accounting, etc.).

Wherever two or more are gathered.

I remember during the fifties and sixties how christians used to get together and enjoy each other's company, have a good time and truly grow in Christ. I remember my folks having get-togethers, but it was a wonderful gathering of friends and families. I don't believe there's much of this around anymore, and that's a shame.

The word "church" has a completely different meaning today than in Jesus' time. Today it means a building or a denomination just how the word is used. Today's people who go to these worldly, man-made denominational "churches" are hearers of the word only.

It's very difficult to find that "someone" to help you along. Search for a group of christians who do not belong to a denomination. There are over 75,000 different worldwide denomination, non-profit organization, each having their own rituals, traditions, ways of living, and interpretations of the bible. There is not one in thought. Is Christ divided?

The meaning of the word "church" is completely different in today's world than in Jesus' time. Today, it means a building or a denomination just how it's used.

Pray to the Father for guidance.

Kathr,
Jesus did not come to talk about himself. He and the apostles taught about God and how to glorify him. Jesus and the apostles taught the coming Kingdom of God and how we are suppose to set our eyes upon. That's the good news. Nothing more, nothing less. They also taught us on how to get there.

I strongly suggest reading the bible without the verse and chapter numbers. You will then be able to read the bible in context.

Kathr, Jesus didn't talk about himself. What did Jesus and the apostles teach? All denominational "churches" teach a different gospel than what is taught in the bible.

kathr4453,
In four words or less, what is the gospel?
