    Not sure which post were talkin bout but...Jesus was also human and suffered just like we do and, He would have fear, but that did not stop Him from obeying The Father. He died for us, willingly yet, even HIS Spirit fought against the flesh. Yet, He overcame EVERY TIME! Amen!

    Hard to imagine God cracking jokes.

    I already proved in scripture that God doesn't fear, so the only thing left is to prove Jesus was God in the Garden:

    Matthew 1:23

    Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

    So it would appear that the bible disagrees with your idea.

    So maybe this connects with the verses that @Devin Wintch quoted.








    Ever heard of the platypus?

    Some don't. I do, as my Priest said God can take it and we shouldn't give in to this idea that we have to act a certain way instead of be who we really are to God. God knows our inner self and we aren't fooling God when we act nice to Him. If we can't be our real selves to God than why act that way to others.

    Of course everyone sat shocked that a priest would say that but thinking about it I realized it was true and now I am very, very candid with the Father. Of course at first it didn't feel right because we are taught certain ways to act to God but after a while it is now just second nature and I feel closer to God now than when I was just be overly polite

    Try verse 38 or so...

    Why would they complain about singing if it was good?

    You know you actually did make a point but it still feels really wrong for me to do.








    Alright, I looked it up and I still didn't see anything about singing. :/

    Christ is fully Human and fully God, that is a must for a Christian to believe. Being fully human Christ experienced everything we do. Hebrews 4:15. If Christ did not experience everything we do than Christianity is a lie than we should join cults like mormonism

    I replace my anger with love for Jesus and the Father and the Holy Ghost. Satan tempts us to be angry with God, but we are commanded to honor are Father and Mother, which then also applies to God.

    Exodus 20:12 "Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee."

    There are other ways to deal with disappointment and anger. Count your blessings, do you have a roof over your head, are you fed, do you have medical care, do you enjoy the comforts of our day and age, do you have God to teach us good from evil, light from darkness, truth from lies. Do you have family and friends that love and care for you?

    I try to go along these lines :) Cheers!

    Christ did not experience everything we do. He never sinned nor fell, he was lowered, perhaps that's where your fear comes from, but that doesn't prove Jesus had fear. That's just your reasoning without proof.

    Hebrews 4:15

    15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

    Now make Hebrews 4:15 make sense with the scriptures I used to prove Jesus felt no fear.

    Jesus may have been tempted with fear but never accepted it? Something like that would have to be true, otherwise your calling the scriptures a lie!

    ;
    Yes He did that is one of the bedrocks of Christianity and yes He was afraid in the Garden. If you don't believe this you do not believe in the true God

    Here your calling Christianity a lie. Fear is not a sin it is normal response. The problem is you don't want a fully human Christ but if He wasn't human h\\He could not save us

    You said he was fully human and fully God in your version of God. And I would have to agree, so then only half of Jesus felt fear and the other half did not? The Human part felt fear and the God part cast it out? And is the Human singular part half, since the Fully God part is infinite? So then how much of Jesus felt fear? Maybe it was nothing like what us humans go thru in all reality. That is my God, he isn't weak. He is almighty in the casting out of fear. Can you do that? Or even resurrect yourself like he did?
