      Hi friend Underworld-Craft

      I think you want to draw our attention to the following verses in the Bible:
         
      John 10:34   
      Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your law: I said you are gods?

         
      Psalms 81:6   
      I have said: You are gods and all of you the sons of the most High.

      So Jesus was god or son of god in the meanings as mentioned in the above usage of Bible. Jesus was not god or son of god in the literal and physical sense.

      I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran

      Thanks

      I am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim

        We are not Gods, and never were intended to be:

        Parr, I am getting real tired of your Crack-pot quotes, trying to justify one  or two sentences you dig out. They are not what you claim. You know nothing at all. Get your Butt in  school and learn something; ok,

        get into the real Hebrew to understand it.

        He is not calling "us" Gods, he is talking directly to the Chosen in Israel. It was a Passover speech Parr, nothing to do with what you claim at all?????

        Below is Psalms 81:6 in full- in all the translations, just in case you would like to become informed???? 

        You destroy any real image of God not up-hold him.  If you really do not know, then just go to silence, ok!

        The Passage you want is 82:6 and it does not translate as you claim it, you have to look at it in the Torah to fully understand it ok:

        at Sinai- Israel received God's word of Torah ("all that the Lord hath spoken") and became holy and sinless ("...we will do and obey"), for this reason you (Israel) are called gods.

        Although it is not explicitly stated, that statement when translated correctly, implies that holiness leads to deathlessness, because Holiness is a godlike quality, for which reason- " Israel is called God."

        it is not intended for the un-circumcised, the rest of us!!!!!  Israel is under the Law, we are under the Grace...think

        It does not mean we are Gods at all, it means they were, not us.

        He also explains to them that if there is any new sin, then they face death.....Yet with Israel's new sin comes death, the typical fate of sinful mortals ("ye shall die like men").

        That’s why in Revelation the 144,000 Israelis, the original 12 of each Tribe, who kept the law, is lifted up, at the 6th seal, and it is also why there is a pause of 1/2 hour at the 7th seal, to allow time for  those Chosen who committed new sin, to ponder what they have done. Before the Book of life is Opened.

        You really do not know Parr, and you need to stop it, and study. Read 86:1 below, and if you like I can show you 86:2 also?

        It clearly is for-told in the Torah, your answers are in the original Hebrew, not in Sunday school or in free lance eclectic interpretation as this thread implies.

        81:6 is below...

        Barnes' Notes on the Bible
        I removed his shoulder from the burden - The burden which the people of Israel were called to hear in Egypt. The reference is undoubtedly to their burdens in making bricks, and conveying them to the place where they were to be used; and perhaps also to the fact that they were required to carry stone in building houses and towns for the Egyptians. Compare Exodus 1:11-14; Exodus 5:4-17. The meaning is, that he had saved them from these burdens, to wit, by delivering them from their hard bondage. The speaker here evidently is God. In the previous verse it is the people. Such a change of person is not uncommon in the Scriptures.

        His hands were delivered from the pots - Margin, as in Hebrew, passed away. That is, they were separated from them, or made free. The word rendered pots usually has that signification. Job 41:20; 1 Samuel 2:14; 2 Chronicles 35:13; but it may also mean a basket. Jeremiah 24:2; 2 Kings 10:7. The latter is probably the meaning here. The allusion is to baskets which might have been used in carrying clay, or conveying the bricks after they were made: perhaps a kind of hamper that was swung over the shoulders, with clay or bricks in each - somewhat like the instrument used now by the Chinese in carrying tea - or like the neck-yoke which is employed in carrying sap where maple sugar is manufactured, or milk on dairy farms. There are many representations on Egyptian sculptures which would illustrate this. The idea is that of a burden, or task, and the allusion is to the deliverance that was accomplished by removing them to another land.


        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible
        I removed his shoulder from the burden,.... These are the words of God, declaring how he had delivered the Israelites from the oppression and cruelty of the Egyptians; who made their lives bitter in hard bondage, and obliged them to carry heavy loads of bricks upon their shoulders:

        his hands were delivered from the pots, or "baskets" (c); into which the bricks were put when made, and carried on their shoulders; or from making of pots, as Kimchi, who thinks the Israelites were employed in making pots of clay as well as bricks; see Psalm 68:13, the Targum is,

        "his hands withdrew themselves from casting clay into the pots:''

        the whole is typical of the saints' deliverance by Christ from the bondage of sin, Satan, and the law.

        (c) "a sporta, a cophino", Gejerus, Amama, Michaelis.


        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
        It is a gentle but profoundly earnest festival discourse which God the Redeemer addresses to His redeemed people. It begins, as one would expect in a Passover speech, with a reference to the סבלות of Egypt (Exodus 1:11-14; Exodus 5:4; Exodus 6:6.), and to the duwd, the task-basket for the transport of the clay and of the bricks (Exodus 1:14; Exodus 5:7.).

        (Note: In the Papyrus Leydensis i. 346 the Israelites are called the "Aperiu (עברים), who dragged along the stones for the great watch-tower of the city of Rameses," and in the Pap. Leyd. i. 349, according to Lauth, the "Aperiu, who dragged along the stones for the storehouse of the city of Rameses.")

        Out of such distress did He free the poor people who cried for deliverance (Exodus 2:23-25); He answered them בּסתר רעם, i.e., not (according to Psalm 22:22; Isaiah 32:2): affording them protection against the storm, but (according to Psalm 18:12; Psalm 77:17.): out of the thunder-clouds in which He at the same time revealed and veiled Himself, casting down the enemies of Israel with His lightnings, which is intended to refer pre-eminently to the passage through the Red Sea (vid., Psalm 77:19); and He proved them (אבחנך, with ŏ contracted from ō, cf. on Job 35:6) at the waters of Merbah, viz., whether they would trust Him further on after such glorious tokens of His power and loving-kindness. The name "Waters of Merı̂bah," which properly is borne only by Merı̂bath Kadesh, the place of the giving of water in the fortieth year (Numbers 20:13; Numbers 27:14; Deuteronomy 32:51; Deuteronomy 33:8), is here transferred to the place of the giving of water in the first year, which was named Massah u-Merı̂bah (Exodus 17:7), as the remembrances of these two miracles, which took place under similar circumstances, in general blend together (vid., on Psalm 95:8.). It is not now said that Israel did not act in response to the expectation of God, who had son wondrously verified Himself; the music, as Seal imports, here rises, and makes a long and forcible pause in what is being said. What now follows further, are, as the further progress of Psalm 81:12 shows, the words of God addressed to the Israel of the desert, which at the same time with its faithfulness are brought to the remembrance of the Israel of the present. העיד בּ, as in Psalm 50:7; Deuteronomy 8:19, to bear testimony that concerns him against any one. אם (according to the sense, o si, as in Psalm 95:7, which is in many ways akin to this Psalm) properly opens a searching question which wishes that the thing asked may come about (whether thou wilt indeed give me a willing hearing?!). In Psalm 81:10 the key-note of the revelation of the Law from Sinai is struck: the fundamental command which opens the decalogue demanded fidelity to Jahve and forbade idol-worship as the sin of sins. אל זר is an idol in opposition to the God of Israel as the true God; and אל נכר, a strange god in opposition to the true God as the God of Israel. To this one God Israel ought to yield itself all the more undividedly and heartily as it was more manifestly indebted entirely to Him, who in His condescension had chosen it, and in His wonder-working might had redeemed it (המּעלך, part. Hiph. with the eh elided, like הפּדך, Deuteronomy 13:6, and אכלך, from כּלּה, Exodus 33:3); and how easy this submission ought to have been to it, since He desired nothing in return for the rich abundance of His good gifts, which satisfy and quicken body and soul, but only a wide-opened mouth, i.e., a believing longing, hungering for mercy and eager for salvation (Psalm 119:131)!

        Geneva Study Bible
        I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were delivered from the {f} pots.

        (f) If they were never able to give sufficient thanks to God, for this deliverance from corporal bondage, how much more are we indebted to him for our spiritual deliverance from the tyranny of Satan and sin?

        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary
        81:1-7 All the worship we can render to the Lord is beneath his excellences, and our obligations to him, especially in our redemption from sin and wrath. What God had done on Israel's behalf, was kept in remembrance by public solemnities. To make a deliverance appear more gracious, more glorious, it is good to observe all that makes the trouble we are delivered from appear more grievous. We ought never to forget the base and ruinous drudgery to which Satan, our oppressor, brought us. But when, in distress of conscience, we are led to cry for deliverance, the Lord answers our prayers, and sets us at liberty. Convictions of sin, and trials by affliction, prove his regard to his people. If the Jews, on their solemn feast-days, were thus to call to mind their redemption out of Egypt, much more ought we, on the Christian sabbath, to call to mind a more glorious redemption, wrought out for us by our Lord Jesus Christ, from worse bondage.


         
        Isaiah 9:4 For as in the day of Midian's defeat, you have shattered the yoke that burdens them, the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor.
        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Isaiah 10:27 In that day their burden will be lifted from your shoulders, their yoke from your neck; the yoke will be broken because you have grown so fat.

        Haaj, I just re-read this again, and I removed the camel driver insult, it was not appropiate and I should not have said it. I appologise to you, I was agatated by the post and the Bible quotes. I just want to say here if we, myself included, are going to insist on quoting the Bible, lets get the correct interpretations up, both books are flawed and have to be proven, but we can at least be in truth as to its agreed upon researched original words, that can give it some meaning. Thats what I am saying.

          when jesus uses the word son in reference to his diety the S is always capitalized.
          Matthew 14:33   Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

          see, only God can accept worship and the S is capitalized. that should end the diety problem.

          okay one more:
          Matthew 27:54   Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

          Interesting to note about this verse and the previous verses, is that, jesus being crucified, hanging on a cross for 6hrs after being beaten, whipped and horribly punished beyond recognition, just before he GAVE up the ghost, he cried with a loud voice! Now crucifixion drains a persons strength, little bit by little bit, slowly, the body sags, the head drops and hangs limp on the torso, indeed the life is being sucked out steadily, evenly, continually. A person has to raise themselves with their legs to breathe, suffocation is the main cause of death on the cross. But jesus cried out with a loud voice, something in christ rose up strong during those lasts few seconds when He should have been drained of all strenght, recall, he did not have enough strength to carry his cross, another carried it for him. But the strength of God when the spirit of God entered back into jesus (that is another sermon :0) jesus strength, from God, strengthened jesus and he cried with a loud voice when he should not have had any voice at all.
          Heres the scriptures:

          Matthew 27:46   And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a LOUD voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

            Matthew 27:50   Jesus, when he had cried again with a LOUD voice, yielded up the ghost.

            All of the images of god are incorrect, remember

            "You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; (Dagon was a fish god of another religion) you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments".

            and
            John 1:18   No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
            and
            Exodus 33:20   And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

            so all images are imagined.

              Anyway - this random post you pulled out of someone else's conversation was about jesus.  And as we know thre is NO verifiable evidence that he existed at all, except a bunch of stuff - mostly written few hundred years after the supposed event and constantly re-written to put any slant anyone wants on them

                  I don't claim the bible is accurate. I claim the bible is a part of the overall history of humankind. There is a difference. People interpret the bible as they see fit, yet have no concept of what a metaphorical parable is?

                  If you refuse to understand what a metaphorical parable is, then you have taken the entire bible out of context. That's is my point.

                      Hey Holly,

                      Do you control your thoughts?

                      Do you control your actions?

                      Just answer those two questions and should you say no to either of them, then you fail to understand Jesus' teaching.

                      But, you keep on believing you do.

                      By controlling both- YOU ARE A GOD in YOUR Life!

                      Simple to understand and you can refuse it all you want.

            Hey Dutchman, the word "god" is a metaphor.

            When Jesus said "Ye are all gods", he meant that each person is a god in their own life. They control their own thoughts and actions.

            Each person has the ability to master themselves, know themselves and their own power.

            The word "god" is a metaphor equal to "self mastery". smile

              Cags, when one applies their own interpretation to a few verses of the Bible and calls it truth, many troubles arise. First, if the verses interpretted contradict the rest of the Bible - it cannot be correct interpretation.
              Secondly, when a mere man takes his interpretation that contradicts the rest of the Bible, and insists it is "truth" that all others must recognise - he is in danger of becoming a religious flake at best.
              I seriously think you have accepted these verses on your terms as they support the cagsil religion. That you are hostile in your demands that others must accept the truth "as only you" interpret it - smells funny.
              Rethink it, and admit  you have chery picked for Heavens sake smile

                Actually this is the issue that I have been saying.

                  We must begin with the earliest scriptures available and learn to understand them "FIRST" without letting later teachings influence our understanding of the earliest.

                  Build upon that; making every attempt to NOT interject any of our own understanding upon what we are reading.

                Holly, I am not applying interpretation. I really wish you would pay attention more closely. My words are not interpretation or opinion. They are translation. Please try to get it correct.
                There is nothing I am doing to interpret the bible. I've done the work need, just like the scholars of the pass have. I am using the correct translation, so as to add context to the words which were used.
                That only happens when interpretation is used, like that of Paul in the New Testament, who used a literal interpretation instead of translation.
                This is foolish, because I have no wish to start a religion and had you paid attention to the words I used, then you would obviously know this. I wish to END all mystic religion.
                Again, you use the word interpret. You continue to think wrong, as usual. Pay attention please...interpretation is NOT translation.
                You speak of a blind person. Which isn't a surprise.

                  Cags,

                    Save your patronizing, I read just fine smile You being correct is a debatable point. I find it very hard to believe you can rank yourself as a Bible scholar or expert when you continue to claim faith is foolishness.
                    This may come as a shock, but your arrogance is all I see when you judge christians for not following doctrine in the way YOU understand it. If someone believes different than you, you call them names and insinuate they are stupid or deranged. It is clear you consider yourself above the human race, which makes you look mentally unbalanced.
                  Has it occurred to you that your interpretations or translations may be inaccurate? Maybe you don't know everything?
                  When debating an issue, you should just stick to what is pertinent to the debate rather than attempt to discredit your opposition. You are just another human being.

                    You know, I don't claim to be ranked with any moron who supposedly became a scholar for the church. Greed was their motive and isn't mine. So please, look is patronizing now.
                    If you actually LIVED in doctrine, we wouldn't even be having this conversation. If you're able to understand that then go ask your local priest.
                    Not really, but I can see how your skewed view perceives it that way.
                    Only to your skewed view, like all the other religious folk. And You would be foolish to think that I consider myself above all the rest, considering everything else that has been said.
                    Yes, it had occurred many years ago, which was the reason for deeper study on the subject. Duh? hmm
                    Again, you open mouth and insert your own foot. I don't claim to know everything there is to know. And, why you continue to run your mouth, saying that I am making that claim is ridiculous.

        It is totally incorrect; God is never born and He never dies. I am only a humble servant of the Creator-God Allah YHWH.

        Jesus was born of Mary; and Mary was neither a god that she could bear a god nor she ever had a husband named god; so Jesus was a human being flesh and bone etc like Moses, while in status Jesus had a lower status than Moses.

      The Old Testament was all about an external god.
      The New Testament is all about guilt with an internal god.

      The Old Testament is of much history with regards to specific people and what happened. However, even with that said- if you incorporate the time and evolution status of consciousness among human beings, then you find out that approximately 99% of the world's population wasn't conscious enough to even be aware of their own existence.

      The New Testament, brought forth by Paul, the Church and Plato's influence, then you have an entire man-made "testimony" to prevent the perceived notion- "if humankind was not made to answer to a higher authority, either a god or government, then chaos would ensue", from happening.

      The average person cannot be trusted to do what's right. They are not allowed to have the perceived notion that they are already in control of their life, because they cannot be believed to do what's best for humanity, much less themselves.

      But aren’t we all believers and non believers God? For we believers God exists everywhere. We never have seen God but we still believe. Without logic, without a proof we admit the existence of God that means we cherish a God in our heart and undoubtedly God lives in the believers soul. God lives in our thoughts and beliefs so we are God except the fact that if we don't believe; God will not extinct.

      I would say you are a non believer until you know you are God.

      the focal point of the bible is the diefication of man. God wants to make man God in essence, not in the God to worshipped. Man will be made God not in the Godhead to be worshipped but in nature, life, and expression. that is, God is working Himself into man until he becomes the same with God in expression , life  and nature. for instance, God is righteous by nature , man will enjoy God to the extent that man's righteousness will just be God expressed. this is the meaning of 'do you know you are gods' found in the book of  Psalm

      Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your law: I said you are gods?

         
      Psalms 81:6   
      I have said: You are gods and all of you the sons of the most High.

      So Jesus was god or son of god in the meanings as mentioned in the above usage of Bible. Jesus was not god or son of god in the literal and physical sense.
