If a man rose to prominence today, saying that he was the Son of God, how would we know he wasn't?
Good question, David Koresh thought he was Christ; he had followers but I'm not sure how prominent he was. We would know that someone claiming to be Christ and he's not by him living in a human body. Christ is in the spirit realm, He's not ever going to live as a human-being again. Although Christ's spirit resides in so so many people today.
Also, any person saying that they're Christ and starts showing magic, witchcraft, and sorcery; it still doesn't matter because he's not Christ the Messiah.
Well I would think if he can't walk on water or turn water into wine, those would be pretty big indications that he's not.
Depending on his actions though, its possible for anyone to become immortalized throughout history as anything, even as the son of god.
Technology can be use to do good, but it's obvious technology is used for bad things. If someone did do something like trying to convince people that He's Christ, a resurrection could also be faked due to human-cloning.
It would be much harder for someone to fake it given today's science. Conversely, if he can demonstrably and reliably violate the laws of physics in a lab, we have a much easier time saying yes, this is supernatural.

...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...
