Introduction

Yes, Jesus is the Son of God, but this is meant only in the metaphorical sense. God has created all of us and therefore we are all his son's and daughter's. " One God and father of all, who is above all and through you all and in you all." (Ephesians 4:6) The bible often uses the idea that God is the father of everyone on this earth. " I have said ye are gods and all of you are children of the most high." (Psalms 82:6) "For as many as are lead by the spirit of God they are the sons of God" (Romans 8:14). By saying that Jesus is the only one on this earth who is the Son of God, you are insulting true Christian beliefs. Christianity strictly teaches monotheistic beliefs; by saying that Jesus is the Son of God you are making your beliefs polytheistic. ...read more.

Middle

This is the verse which you have quoted from the bible. In this verse it is not clear what the Holy Ghost is I assume that the word is the gospel, if these three things are one that means that there is only one God, who has no partners, and therefore Jesus cannot be his son. " And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the sprit, seen of angels, preached unto the gentiles, believed in the world received up into glory." (1Timothy 3:16) this verse shows that God preached to the gentiles, Jesus did not preach to the gentiles and therefore he was not God. Muslims believe that God is omnipotent, his power is everywhere, and he cannot be manifest in the flesh, as it says in the bible. It is probable that this verse has been somehow concocted; the verse says that god was manifest in the flesh; does this mean that god is not alive? ...read more.

Conclusion

"For my father is greater than I" Why would Jesus say that his father was greater than him, if he believed that he was God? No one is greater than God. If Jesus was God on Earth he would have the power to do anything he wished, he would be indestructible, he would be able to destroy his enemies easily, everyone would live in fear of him, it does not seem that everybody was scared of Jesus, he had many enemies and many disciples. Another argument in favour of this point is that if Jesus was God then why would he need to be born through his mother, like any human being, if he was God why did he need a human to give birth to him? And also why did he die? If he was God shouldn't he have been immortal? From all these arguments we can conclude that, Jesus is mentioned as the Son of God only in a metaphorical sense, he was actually just a prophet of God. ...read more.
