Ten reasons why Jesus is not God

1. People look like trees and walking

In the Gospel of Mark Chapter 8 says:  

22 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him.23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?” 24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.” 25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. 26 Jesus sent him home, saying, “Don’t even go into the village.”


The story is about a blind man getting healed by Jesus (p). 
The issue that firstly arises here is that if Jesus was indeed Lord and Saviour as assumed by Trinitarian’s, then how, when he began to heal the blind man did he make a mistake the first time, and accidentally made his eyesight register people as moving trees? A God can make no mistakes, it is just impossible for a God to make a mistake. God need only say and it will pop into existence. Why then did Jesus if he really is God need to perform the healing a second time in order to rectify his mistake?

2. All Authority ‘GIVEN’

 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. (Mathew 28:18)
“I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from YouFor I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me. (John 17:6-8)

All authority has been “GIVEN” to Jesus by the Father (God)? How can Jesus be “God” if he was “GIVEN” this authority? So before Jesus was “GIVEN” this “authority”, what was he? He was nobody, what kind of God was he before he was “GIVEN” all this authority? If Jesus is co equal with the Father (God) as claimed by Trinitarian’s, why would Jesus need the Father to give him authority if he is God himself?

3. Jesus Is Tempted

The Holy Spirit led Jesus into the desert. There the devil tempted him (Jesus)After 40 days and 40 nights of going without eating, Jesus was hungry.

The tempter came to him. He said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Finally, the devil took Jesus to a very high mountain. He showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. “If you bow down and worship me,” he said, “I will give you all of this.” 10 Jesus said to him, “Get away from me, Satan! It is written, ‘Worship the Lord your God. He is the only one you should serve.’11 Then the devil left Jesus. Angels came and took care of him. (Mathew 4:1-11)

Is it conceivable that an All-Mighty God can become tempted by the devil to whom God created; is God susceptible to being swayed by His own creation? If Jesus is God then there lies some issues for the Bible says:

James 1:13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil,nor does he tempt anyone.

It is so clear here that Jesus (pbuh) cannot be God, for he was tempted to do evil. And God cannot be swayed  with temptation.

It says in verse 8: Finally, the devil took Jesus to a very high mountain. He showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. “If you bow down and worship me,” he said, “I will give you all of this.”

God, owner of the worlds, the creator of all animate and inanimate objects, the giver of life and death, the sustainer of all. How if Jesus is God can the devil say to a God I shall give you all this, if you worship me? It just is not possible for this scene to occur if the devil was really speaking to God. It is thus self-evident that Jesus is not God for even the devil knew Jesus was not. Hence why he tempted him with such material gains.

Jesus said lastly: ‘Worship the Lord your God. He is the only one you should serve.’  Jesus made it clear that the only person that should be worshipped is God alone and no one else.

 

4 .The Father is greater than Jesus

‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. John 14:28

Jesus clearly said that the Father (God) is greater than him. Christians will argue and say: that this means that the Father is greater than Jesus in authority but not in essence. But this contradicts Matthew 28:18 where Jesus says all authority is given by the father to him. Another thing to note is, if they are all co-equal as Christians say, how can one be greater than the other?

5.  I can of mine own self do nothing

as I hear, I judge: and my judgement is just; because I seek not mine own willbut the will of the Father which hath sent me. John 5:30

Jesus (pbuh) here says it clearly that everything he does, the  miracles, forgiving the sins, is not from him but from God Almighty. He does everything by the will of God. If Jesus was God why couldn’t he do whatever he wants, since he is God? Why does HE need to listen to the Father (God) to be granted permission?  

6. Not my Doctrine

And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine. (Mathew 7:28)

 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes. ( Mark 1:22)

 Jesus answered them, and said the following: My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. He means God almighty. (John 7:16)
So as you see it is clear that Jesus (pbuh) was a prophet of God almighty. The doctrine Jesus taught, which is the Gospel, is not his, but it belongs to the one who sent him, in other words God. If he was God, wouldn’t he be saying this Gospel is my own words, I am God?
 

 7.  Is Jesus shy to say ‘I AM GOD?’

You won’t find one verse in the whole Bible where Jesus says “I am God”, Why is that? If Jesus is God, why would he not declare that he is God? Is he shy to say he is God? I mean there are so many passages in the Old Testament where God almighty makes himself clear that he is God, why hasn’t Jesus once said “I am God”? Can I call someone King if he never declared himself to be a King? I am going to show 10 verses where God says he is God in Old Testament:

(A)        Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me. (Isaiah 46:9)

 (B)        Yet I am the Lord thy Godfrom the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me. (Hosea 13:4)

 (C)        I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me. Isaiah 45:5)

 (D)        And God said to him, “I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will be among your descendants. (Genesis 35:11)

 (E)        “I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites. Tell them, ‘At twilight you will eat meat, and in the morning you will be filled with bread. Then you will know that “I am the LORD your God.(Exodus 16:12)

(F)         “I am God, the God of your father,” he said. “Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will make you into a great nation there. (Genesis 46:3)

(G)        “I am the LORD, the God of all mankind.” Is anything too hard for me? (Jeremiah 32:27)

(H)        And they shall recompense your lewdness upon you, and ye shall bear the sins of your idols: and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.(Ezekiel 23:49)

(I)          Keep my Sabbaths holy, that they may be a sign between us. Then you will know that “I am the LORD your God.” (Ezekiel 20:20)

(J)         “So My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will have no place in the council of My people, nor will they be written down in the register of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel, that you may know that I am the Lord GOD. (Ezekiel 13:9)

 8. God alone is good

As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. (Mark 10:17-18)

In the above verse a man runs up to Jesus and says “Good teacher” Jesus replies back and says “why do you call me good”? Jesus answered him and said “no one is good except God alone”. If he was really God, why would he differentiate himself, why would he say God ALONE is good? He is making himself clear that God alone is perfect and no one else, not even himself.

 

 9. Jesus don’t know the hour

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

It is sufficient to say that God alone knows all matters, and that He is aware of all of which we conceal and reveal. However, if Jesus is really God incarnate in flesh, how is it that he is unaware of the time of the coming hour? How is he unable to deduce when the end of time shall come? So, we can say that he doesn’t know thus not making him all-knowing which is an essential attribute of God’s. How can one claim Jesus is God when lacks basic attributes to even be considered a God? Ever asked yourself that question, that if Jesus is actually a part of a three and these are all co-equal how can the son not know the answer?

10.  Jesus worshipped God

Jesus (pbuh) bowing down and worshipping God the Father:

(A) Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” (Mathew 26:39)

(B) He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father,if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” (Mathew 26:42)

(C) Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. (Mark 1:35)

(D) They went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” (Mark 14:32)

(E) Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayedthat if possible the hour might pass from him. (Mark 14:35)

(F) One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. (Luke 6:12)

(G) He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed. (Luke 22:41)

(H) And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. (Luke 22:44)

Did Jesus just pray to himself? And why did he do this? A God is in no need of peoples prayer, rather people are in need of the prayer. So, who exactly is the creator worshipping?

Jesus says: But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth. (John 4:23)

Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ (Mathew 4:10)


If Jesus said ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only’, why do Trinitrian’s continue to worship Jesus? 
After reading through all of this it is just so obvious that Jesus cannot be God. If you continue to worship the creation rather than the creator you will only be bringing disaster in to your lives for you are neglecting the verses that argue on the contrary to the popular belief. O people, worship your Lord who is One, who resembles not the creation and one who cannot be contained in a particular direction nor contained within a specific place. God is far beyond any human conception.

  1. who ever has posted this i guess has not read the bible properly just have taken some scriptures and quoting Them and explainin Them in a manner doesn’t solve the problem yo know i have answer for you from the very first reason of what reasons you have given in this page pls don twist it anymore alright.. Yo wanna read a bible read it with a open heart you see god will bless yo and touch you Then and Then you’ll know the truth and the truth will set you free.. So i advice you brother to do the same.. They say how you believe a situation is how you think it is so just don try to give a twisted illustrations to the scriptures quoted

    • Hi Sandesh

      Thank you for your comment. I have read the Bible. I didn’t twist anything in this article. I gave you the verses, what it says. What I wrote is very clear that Jesus cannot be God.

      • you can never understand the bible with your head….. coz spiritual things are discerned spiritual its only the Holy Spirit who can reveal them to you if you would let Him in. owise Jesus is God and i could show you the entire bible witnessing to this fact.

    • no bro. its YOU who doesn’t read the bible using logic. just stupid church dogma.

    • i will ask you a sincere question. if there were communual toilets in israel and you went in one to relieve yourself and you met jesus in the communual toilet, would u bend forward and worship an excreting god?

  2. I don’t get it….If the Christians are trying to tell you that these scriptures are not being defined correctly…and especially since historic Christianity holds to Jesus being God. How can you say this is what these scriptures mean?

  3. Very inciteful. Thank you for sharing. Gives me a lot to meditate on and pray on. I can see how the Jews and Muslims believe the savior has not come and like u said that Jesus was a prophet. When I have heard people say ” All I need is Jesus” that has bothered me as well as a lot of the Christian rhetoric I have heard. I also have wondered why we don’t see the same miracles we read about in the bible. Unlike the replies I have read about your article, you bring up some good points and I thank you. I believe it was purposed for me to read this and now it is btn me and God. Respect.

  4. AWESOME work brother. keep up with bible truth because who ever is the almighty it sure is not Jesus.
    very good article.

  5. John 17:1-5
    Revised Standard Version (RSV)
    Jesus Prays for His Disciples

    17 When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify thy Son that the Son may glorify thee, 2 since thou hast given him power over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom thou hast given him. 3 And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent. 4 I glorified thee on earth, having accomplished the work which thou gavest me to do; 5 and now, Father, glorify thou me in thy own presence with the glory which I had with thee before the world was made.

    John 4:21-26
    Revised Standard Version (RSV)
    21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 25 The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ); when he comes, he will show us all things.” 26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he.”

    John 8:39-47
    Revised Standard Version (RSV)
    Jesus and Abraham

    39 They answered him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do what Abraham did, 40 but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth which I heard from God; this is not what Abraham did. 41 You do what your father did.” They said to him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.” 42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I proceeded and came forth from God; I came not of my own accord, but he sent me. 43 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 But, because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Which of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? 47 He who is of God hears the words of God; the reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”

  6. Please read John 1-14 to know that who is Jesus and from where he came. God became a man and came to earth to reveal Him to the man, who does not know God and could not understand God. If Jesus is not God and only man, what is his father name ? Do n’t you believe that no human will born on this earth without a father/man. You should have the knowledge of God to understand Jesus Christ. Also you need the Holy spirit to understand the spiritual which is the Word of God.

  7. Examine the New Testament. We see, therein, Christ, the man. If we study the accounts from his birth onwards. We cannot arrive at a picture that is different from that of a human being.

    – Jesus is born as the descendent of Abraham and David (Luke 2:21).

    – Jesus is circumcised (Luke 2:21).

    – Jesus is breast-fed (Luke 11:27).

    – Jesus travels on back of the ass (Matthew 21:5).

    – Jesus takes food and drink (Matthew 11:19).

    – A homeless Jesus (Matthew 8:20).

    – Jesus uses clothing (John 19:23).

    – Jesus has brothers and sisters (Matthew 13:35).

    – The knowledge of Jesus increases with his age (Luke 21:40).

    – Jesus, of his own self, can do nothing (John 5:30).

    – Jesus is unaware of the time of fruition of the Fig tree (Mark 11:12).

    – Jesus exercises obedience through his patience (Ebriar 5:8).

    – Jesus experiences hunger (Mark 11:12).

    – Jesus experiences thirst (John 19:28).

    – Jesus sleeps (Matthew 8:24).

    – Jesus is fatigued in a journey (John 4:6).

    – Jesus sighs in anxiety (John 11:33).

    – Jesus weeps (John 11:35).

    – Jesus grieves (Matthew 26:37).

    – Jesus exerts his strength (John 2:13).

    – Jesus exhorts unto the taking up of the sword (Luke 22:36).

    – Jesus fears the Jews (John 18:12,13).

    – Jesus is betrayed (John 18:2).

    – Jesus is captured (John 18:12,13)

    – Jesus is humiliated (Matthew 26:67)

    – Jesus is beaten (John 18:22)

    – Jesus fears death (Mark 14:36).

    – Jesus prays to God (Matthew 26:42).

    – A messenger from heaven appears so that Jesus may be strengthened (Luke 22:43).

    Let us now think. Is Jesus God or was he human?

    Common sense answers that he is, indeed, human. A great messenger!

    The Holy Quran had been right all along: “O people of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and his Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His Messengers. Say not ‘Three’: desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is One God: glory be to Him: (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.” (Quran 4:171)

    The Gospel of God

    Jesus Christ was the messenger of God who was appointed amongst the Israelites. He had himself said: “leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.” (Matthew 5:24). His mission was to bring back the Israelites, who had deviated from the Divine path, to the religion of truth.

    The Gospel (Injeel) was the scripture that was revealed to Jesus. He had invited the Israelites towards the path of Truth by preaching the Gospel.

    Jesus had taught : ” ‘The time has come,’ he said, ‘The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!'” (Mark 1:15). “Firstly, the good news must be preached to all people.” (Mark 14:9)

    Where is the Gospel, which God had revealed to Jesus Christ, to be found today? Will we ever get a complete picture of the Gospel which Jesus had preached if we are to search the whole of the Bible thoroughly? No. The New testament contain the gospels of Matthew, Mark and John. Where then is the ‘Gospel of God’ that was preached by Jesus to be found today?

    The ‘Gospel of God’ preached by Jesus Christ is not extant today. Like all the previous divine scriptures which were revealed before it, it, too, has become long forgotten now.

    There is but one single religious scripture that has maintained the original purity with which it was revealed. That is the Holy Quran. The Quran is, furthermore, the only book which, on its own, professes to be divine. The Quran is the book which has remained unconquered for fourteen centuries in the face of all the scientific and technological revolutions witnessed by the world.

    The Quran was revealed to the world through Muhammad (e) who was prophesied by Jesus as the one who was to come as his successor (John 16:7-14).

    Those who desire to obey Jesus and attain to life eternal must, necessarily, follow the Quran as well as the life of Muhammad (e) which was based on it. That is the path of eternal salvation.
