    50% God and 50% man?...That is so wrong...so wrong. Yahshua was God in the flesh..
    Firstly mate, when anybody calls him 'Yahshua', it makes me suspicious as to why they don't use his proper name 'Jesus'?As for Jesus being God, why did he say "Don't call me perfect, only God is perfect" if he was God?

I say Yahshua because I like Hebrew better. I only say Jesus when it comes to scripture.2. All over the Bible saying Yahshua was God. I'll go get scriptures...putting it down.John 1:1-3 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------John 1:14 - And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.I Timothy 3:16 - And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------John 10:30 - I and my Father are one.I John 5:7 - For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Philippians 2:6 - Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Isaiah 9:6 - For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.Yet He is calledLuke 1:32 - He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:Luke 1:35 - And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Now to further answer your question. The reason He said in the below quote is that He is teaching us that ALL HUMANS fall short of the glory of God. No one is good, no one is greater than God.Luke 18:19 - And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.Not to mention He also said this...Again He is teaching us the same thing. ALL HUMANS falls short and there is none good.John 14:28 - Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.Other than that. Yahshua admitted worship from people because He knew He was God.Love much, JagLovest ye in Christ Yahshua our Lord and Saviour.

    On the one hand -Jesus said - "I and my Father are one." (John 10:30)And - "Whoever has seen me has seen the Father" (John 14:8 )But on the other hand -Jesus said - "I am going to the Father, for my Father is greater than I" (John 14:28 )"Why do you call me good? Only God is good" (Luke 18:19)"Only God knows when Judgment Day will be, I don't know myself" (Mark 13:32)"I say nothing of my own accord, i only say what my father tells me to say.." (John 12:49)High Priest asks - "Are you the Son of God?" Jesus replies - "I am" (Mark 14:61)God himself said - "This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased" (Matt 3:17)And of course Jesus regularly prayed to God, yet if he was God why would he pray to himself?In context therefore, we can see Jesus was not God..----------------------------------------------------

    PS - about calling Jesus 'Yashua', I've heard it said that people who do that don't use the name 'Jesus' because they have a demon in them that hates his name..

    Yahshua is a version of the Hebrew of the name Jesus. Literally means "YHVH's Savior." People often seem to forget that Jesus was not English nor was he Greek. Yahshua is the proper Aramaic/Hebrew name for Jesus so arguably it's much more proper than the English.There are variations due to our English:YeshuaYashuaYahshuaetc.Whoever told you that fairytale is more likely to have the demon in this case. They don't know his name all that well themselves.

    Wow, then you can certainly deny this prophecy...Genesis 22:8 - And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.John 1:29 - The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.God came down to Earth in the flesh (John 1:14, I Timothy 3:16) as a simple man, And He done no voilence. Wounded and bruised by our inquity. (Isaiah 53)If Yahshua was not God, but human, He would have lied with the others since we all liars. (Psalm 116:11) But He is God, and God can not lie (Numbers 23:19) nor can He sin. (II Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 4:15, I Peter 2:22) And there is no darkness at all in God. (John 1:4, I John 1:5)(MickinEngland;20268)

    I really don't mind hearing people saying Jesus. It is just there are too many false doctrines and then praise Him for that. They teach another Jesus...just like every politically correct bible...I'm exposing.Yahshua forknew truth, because He said truth. He has told us everything ahead of time.Mark 13:23 - But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.Much love, JagLovest ye in Christ Yahshua our Lord and Saviour.

    Can anyone who thinks Jesus was God please answer this - If Jesus was God, why did he say he didn't know when Judgement Day is, because only God knows? (Mark 13:32)

    Because God the Son emptied Himself out of His power to walk amongst us as one of us to be the perfect sacrifice none of us could be.The physical man Jesus,was just that but without a sin nature which plagued the rest of the world.But He could choose at anytime to tap into that power as He showed with His miricles and knowledge.He subjected Himself to the laws of this world even unto death.I see your 50/50 and raise you 100%.LOL

    Yes I agree that Jesus was able to tap to the power of God, but that doesn't mean he became God..[​IMG]Likewise faith healers tap into it too, but they don't become God either.
