::: Some passages from the Holy Bible that refute the pauline (catholic) church’s doctrine on Jesus’ being God:
-no one has ever seen God (jn 1: 18) yet the apostles have seen Jesus (peace) so how could he be God?
–Christ is the beginning of creation (Ap 3:14) therefore Jesus (peace) has been created so he cannot be God for God has not been created, He is the Creator, He has no beginning nor end.
–God is the chief of Christ (1 Co 1:13) which implies Jesus (peace) is submitted to God, only a creation can be associated with submission not the Creator.
-“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Mark 13:31-32) Christ says none (including himself) but God knows of the date for jugdment day therefore Jesus (peace) is not omniscient, so how can he be God? only God is omniscient.
-the Father is greater than me (Jan 4: 28) we know that Jesus prays to God throughout his mission, so how can he pray to God if he is God?
–Hear, O Israel: The Lord OUR God is one Lord (Deut 6:4): notice he said “OUR God” this verse is pretty similar to the one of the Qur’an where he says “… ‘Worship Allah MY LORD AND YOUR LORD’ “ …
When we claim to be followers of a prophet and that his teachings have been corrupt, shouldn’t we strive to filter the authentic from the inventions made in his name by those who actually had the greatest hatred for him (peace) while he was amongst them? Some priests were already plotting to silence his Divine Message by assassinating him as their institutions were threatened and disempowered by his existence.
So who should the followers of prophets heed? the prophets themselves or those who corrupt their Message while pretending to be the exclusive representatives of God on Earth while misleading the masses? :::
