Jesus Lets People Call Him God

Jesus is God
He accepted the title “God” when it was addressed to him by his disciple, Thomas. (John 20:28)  Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” 15Muslim : Thomas used the term “God” to refer to messenger of God Muslim response Muslims have argued that there are many uses of the title “God”. This is true. It can refer to the devil, angels, believers, judges or messenger of God. Christian reply Let’s look at the context of the verse. Which category do you think Thomas is referring to? After he had doubted that Jesus could raise himself from the dead and Jesus proved to him that he can, is Thomas calling Jesus his devil, his angel, his fellow believer, judge or just a messenger?

Jesus not Man become God

Jesus is God
Jesus is not a man who has become God When Christians say they believe that Jesus is God, some ask: “How can a man become God?” Of course it is impossible. Man can never become God. Jesus was not a man who became God. Jesus is God who came to earth to live with us as a human being. We need to reverse the question: “Can God choose to appear on earth for a period of time?” That answer has to be yes. God is almighty and He can do whatever He likes. In fact, He had appeared on earth to talk to Moses. Moses was not summoned to heaven to talk to God. God came down to talk to Moses. Close window

Jesus Existed Before the Creation of the World

Jesus is God
Jesus claimed to have existed even before Abraham. (John 8:57-59 NIV)  "You are not yet fifty years old," the Jews said to him, "and you have seen Abraham!" {58} "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!" {59} At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds. Jesus asserted His divinity by the use of the present tense “I am”. If He had only wanted to say He had existed before Abraham, He would have used “I was”. Upon hearing this, the Jews picked up stones to stone him because they equated this to blasphemy. They understood Jesus was claiming to be the forever existent God. Muslim response: Jesus only existed in God’s foreknowledge, like…
