How do you know Jesus is God?

Was the question posed to one of the guests on Scottish Pastor, David Robertson’s somewhat odd evangelical Youtube channel, called Cafe Online.

You can watch the entire riveting episode, ostensibly about the Trinity and how of course it is in the bible ….  here, if you are so inclined.

The guest in question replied:

Nalini: ”It’s really hard to explain. You know it in your heart and you know it through faith.” She went on to add: ”All the evidence of the bible tells us that he is God.” 

Then she finished her intro with this …. ”There is no tangible evidence you can point to.”

Let me reiterate Nalini’s admission: There is no tangible evidence …

Robertson’s other guest, a chap called Glen, and husband to to Nalini stated:

”If Jesus is not God then everything falls apart.”

So, what does this leave us with?

And you wonder why so many people deconvert?

  1. Kafirs. And blasphemers. They are Unclean because they are heathens and infidels. Pay no attention to their false words.

    Obviously, they’ve never read the Koran, understand the importance of the Haddith, appreciate the clarity of the Surah or their minds would be open to receiving the One True God and their hearts would become pure. If they had but done this One Simple Thing, they’d know they were assigning faith to the wrong book(s) and the wrong Prophet(s).

    Duh.

  2. This was the immediate issue that caused me to leave Christianity (way back whenever).

    I could find where Jesus talked of God as father, but that was clearly a metaphor (as in father of us all). But I could not find where he said he was the son of God. He did say that he was the son of man, but that already seems to contradict that he is the son of God.

    1. Phaisees—John 10:33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God”
      36—Do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? KJV

      1. Btw, son of god in Hebrew and greek means “equal to in power and authority”. As a side note, the son of god is translator interpolation. In the greek it is actually “a” son of god, which would actually mean heaven is not a monarchy, but a democracy. There are other verses that say this if you’re interested, but the jesus character was quite the Hindu, to the Hindus .

  3. A priest in an interview years ago (I paraphrase), ‘If Jesus is not God and all of this is not true, we have been engaged in an enormous fraud for two-thousand years.’ I recall raising an eyebrow, then saying to myself, “and…?”

    1. This initially confused me as well, but after consideration I think he meant the Christian faith rather than Life As We Know It. Then again, maybe this is what he meant?

    1. The only thing that falls apart is their goofball belief system, which is “everything” to them.

      “If Peter Parker is not Spider-Man, then everything falls apart.” Pretty devastating if for some reason you’d chosen to base your entire existence on Spider-Man comic books.

  4. I.. wow. There is so much mumbo jumbo language in the linked video, good old religion eh? When I was Christian I actually asked a pastor, how does he know Jesus is God? He just threw a few Bible verses at me, well that’s all I would expect from him I guess.
