Why Christians take Jesus as God ? Did Jesus ever said in bible that he is God ?
I Mean I have never seen any proof in bible,but still Christians believe and worship Jesus...How ever Jesus itself said the true worshipers will worship his father.so those who worship jesus are on wrong path ?
WOW! that is a loaded questions and I think you're going to get many different answers. I feel it doesn't really matter as long as you take the lessons he taught and use them in your life as much as possible. I don't think he ever said in the Bible that he was god, rather the sone of god.
Our Prophet Muhammad, Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon him, hath Taught us ...
"Tum kisi kay aitqaad o Imaan ya Khuda ko bura mat kaho ... mubada kay woh Allah Bari Taala aur tumharay deen, yanay, Islaam kay baray aisay he kalimaat istimaal karein" ...
[Meaning ..."Do not demonstrate inappropriate manners, by resorting to what be foul language, while discussing the Belief and God/s of Non-Muslims ... lest they use the same for Allah and Islam ... ]
Thus, if you note an anomaly in the Content of a Belief ... Allah calls upon Muslims to point such anomaly in a goodly manner.
I hope IslamicWallpapers will bear Allah and His Prophet's Required, in mind. What Christians Believe, is their business ... your duty ends when you Invite all non Muslims to The Truth ... Islam ... in a goodly manner ... than telling others how wrong they are !
He states in John 10:30 "I and the Father are one." He also, thoughout Scripture attributes the powers and authority of God to Himself. If you read ALL of Scripture, in context, you will see this pattern emerge.
There are hubs written on this subject with abundant scriptures to support not only that Jesus claimed to be God but many others recognized Jesus as the Son of God. It was the religious leaders who refused to admit Jesus Christ was God, but even the demons recognized Jesus as being the Son of God. It took the disciples awhile but they eventually acknowledged that Jesus was the Christ the Son of God and later wrote letters insisting that Jesus Christ was equal with God – the exact image of God.
Exodus 3:14 And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And He said, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'"
John 8:58-59 Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM." Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
I am! Is an explicit claim to deity. Although each occurrence of the phrase "I am" in the Fourth Gospel needs to be examined individually in context to see if an association with Ex 3:14 is present, it seems clear that this is the case here (as the response of the Jewish authorities in the following verse shows).
My answer was too long and rec. suggestion to make a hub - I already did that and was told it was duplicate which means that you can find plenty of material and scripture to answer this question.
He said "I and my Father are one."
He also said that the only way to the Kingdom of God is by him.
You can trip yourself up on semantics, or you can open your heart to the true meaning behind the words. Behind the words is truth. If you look at the words with your own "meaning," you blind yourself.
Praise be to Allah, Lord God, master and source of all.
God referred to Himself as "I AM" in Exodus 3:14. Moses had asked God who he should tell the Israelite people who had sent him to deliver them from Egyptian bondage. God said to tell them, "I AM has sent me to you." Jesus uses this term, referring to Himself in John 8:24. In that passage, He told the Jews that unless they believed that He was the "I AM" they would die in their sins. Again, in John 8:58, He said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I AM."
Neither Jesus' testimony on his own behalf nor a man's witness about him can be accepted as real proof of his divinity.
(John 5: 31-34)
On the other hand, even the Holy Qur'an did not miss to take note of Jesus' verifiable absolute authority in his Spirit-active, perfect and diacritical death on the cross, thus, proving him to be God beyond shadow of any doubt!
(S. IV. 157-159)
Yeshua did say, "I and the Father are One". It depends upon interpretation of that phrase whether you believe Yeshua is stating that He is God. My belief is that Yeshua and God are of One Mind, just as we are to be of one mind with one another and God. My Belief is based upon my own life's experiences that have proven to me that Yeshua is a separate being from God Almighty. Therefore, my translation is validated in their being of One Mind. In Being of One Mind, Yeshua spoke from God Himself. A study of the quotes Yeshua uses throughout the Gospels will Reveal that everything He said was also stated in the Old Testament. Deuteronomy was His favorite Book.
There is a lot of mistranslations in the bible. To believe that Christ is God is one of them. God do not have a father.If Christ was God.....who did he call father?
God is a spirit and Christ is a spirit in His image. The father sent the son,God did not come Himself. But most of the world have changed it around to say that God is Christ because of personal agenda.
Christ taught us to pray to the father......."Our father who art in heaven."
He did not teach us to pray to him. There is a "spiritual definition" that most of the world have not included in their equations which cause them to mistranslate.
So the answer to your question is NO, ......Christ never said that He was God.
Hold still and keep the faith my friend, and turn not to the left hand nor to the right.

...when Jesus clearly said 'My Father is Greater than I' in John 14:28?Nothing can be greater than God, so by Jesus' own words, we can deduce that Jesus did not profess to be God, because he professes that there is a power Greater than him (Jesus). Why then do many Christians firmly believe that...

Hi friendsMirza Ghulam Ahmad 1835-1908 has given many proofs from the Bible; that Jesus did not die on the Cross. One such proof is as follows:Let it be noted that though Christians believe that Jesus (peace be on him) after his arrest through the betrayal by Judas Iscariot, and crucifixion -- and...

I have been doing a lot of studying about the Jewish and Christian faiths over the last few days and am confused at how so many Christians believe Jesus was Jewish yet they themselves are not. Someone please enlighten...

My personal opinion is that, YES, most Christians believe in God out of fear. And that starts when they are children. When a child is taken to church and told that he/she will burn eternally in the fiery pits of hell unless they follow the rules of the Bible and God's word, that...

People, please stop using the question section to post. I hate leaving comments on questions because people take advantage of the one response rule to take a shot at the previous comments. This forum is inspired by a recent comment I left on a question, "How do Christians know the Bible is the...
