    Can anyone point out any mistake committed by Christ?

    For me Jesus Christ was the most honest and true human being on earth. I only find His words being twisted and turned by humans to suit their purposes.

    You are right, Jesus, being both man AND God, was perfect, and thus not capable of committing a sin or probably even a mistake.  In the Gospels he is displayed as perfect, and yet with human emotions that he uses perfectly.

    It was not a mistake for Jesus to trust his disciples, because he knew that, for the most part they were the best people for the job... and even those that betrayed him did so in accord with God's plan to use them for humanity's salvation.

      The Creator doesn't pretend to trust the created, yet converse must occur to suit the Creator's will.

    I know it states in the Bible that Jesus was sinless, but if He came as man so to experience man and relate, then would he not falter some to learn what it is like to be man and have remorse?

      except for he was born of the Virgin Mary, as well as conceived by the Spirit.  He was born without Original Sin and thus doesn't sin.  He does weep and get angry and scared however.

      Apparently anger isn't a sin since the Bible says, "Be angry but do not sin."

      Some anger is.  But there is "righteous anger"

      What's more important is that He was sinless, yet He was still tempted by sin. He was a man so, naturally, He would have experienced temptation. Yet He remained sinless.

      Jesus was born as the man on legal purpose. Man sin and man had to die. Animals never sin and sacrifice of animals were only temporary, atonement (cover).

    Another interesting Q VegasElias.

    Well, it all depends... If one doesn't go down the line that Jesus was THE son of God, but a Realiser of great proportions, then it begs the question, why did he become agitated at the temple, when people were using it to sell things and lend money etc.

    In the history of the world nothing has ever changed, the Divine (or least, deeper truths) have always been ignored and/or desecrated in some way. It's the norm around here! So why, being a Realiser, did he become so angered by it, chasing people out of the table and upturning tables etc? (if indeed he did do that), to make the temple as it should be? In some ways, this certainly wasn't turning the other cheek!

    So maybe that was a small mistake, his political side and the way belief in him became a political issue (which ironically, is really the only real reason he became so popular). But I guess in his heart he was doing the right thing - so that was very true and honest.

    There's some conjecture that realisers like Buddha actually perceived deeper truths than Jesus, going beyond the siddhis, or miracle powers.

    I don't think I answered this question at all? But I can't help feeling that him getting angered (albeit righteous anger), did much at all to help things. The Divine is still ignored and desecrated to this day. Maybe that was a small mistake. But I'm far from someone who can judge this matter correctly!

      Jesus demonstrated in the temple that the place is holy and should not be abuse by anyone. Jesus never made mistake.

      Electro-Denizenposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I tend to agree. It's just that his action made no difference to history at all. God knows that nothing changes on earth, nothing makes a difference really in an idealist sense. Only on a personal level do people develop. But Jesus'anger was correct.

      Thank you rdcast, I may give that a look. It's sad, but some churches are turned into wine bars or people's private homes these days - or ironically, into mosques, which I've seen. In that sense Jesus driving those guys out of the temple didn't work.

      Jesus Christ, Savior, Lord, King and Creator, warned against defiling the Worship of God. You can't create God into something He isn't. He is creating YOU. Learn by His Word, what that is to be.

      A very studied answer indeed. Actually we do not know whether the incident in the temple or so many other incidences which contradict each other are real incidences at all.
      The incident in the temple might have been a deliberate and studied action.

    Jesus Christ is perfection and will not change. For the lost who refuse to accept His living words of redemption, can only twist themselves in a vain struggle to justify their own useless existence. They will only listen to the faithful's witness when they are made humble despite their sins. Those are opportunities when our Holy Spirit will provide direction.. Struggling in disputes with the lost, becomes our own vanity and lacks the direction from the Holy Spirit. Indeed, we are commanded not to welcome or bid farewell to such Antichrists.

      that wipes out quite a of the world's population, children brought up in other cultures, tribes who have never heard of Jesus etc ... Every religion uses pretty much the same arguments that support the notion that their figure of worship is THE one.

      rdcastposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      God won't honor your complaint Electro-Denizen. Antichrists are those who actively and willfully reject Jesus Christ as the resurrected Savior and Son of the only God. The Word of God handles the issue of those never witnessed to. Read it.

      Don't want to be mean, but it's so much easier to try and get others to come round to one's own point of view (with us or against us mentality) rather than doing genuine work on oneself. Get a passport. Travel widely. Read widely.

      You realize, by saying that, you've made both a witness and prayer? I don't believe my mind can not pray for very long, if at all. Whenever I speak with you, or whomever, amen should be implied.

      Incorrect cruel - He is mentioned in Genesis and His coming is prophesied in the OT. The Bible has more historicity than other well known ancient texts and 100 yrs. is not a long time.

      I beg to differ Dubuquedogtrainer Jesus is not mentioned by name, it is your assumption that it is him. The Bible devotes some 500 verses on prayer, less than 500verses on faith, but over 2000 verses on money and possessions. Not my Jesus?
