Jesus is Man & NOT God
Debate Rounds (3)
I admit I always hesitated to say he's God.. but I hesitated more to say he's not. and i'm one to give the bible the benefit of the doubt... so... I go with God...
Romans 9:5 - ...Christ, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen.
Titus 2:13-15 - ...our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,
Hebrews 1:8 - But about the Son he says, "Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever"
2 Peter 1:1 - ...the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ"
at the beginning of the book of John... "In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us". Jesus became flesh and dwelt amoung us.. Jesus is the word.
In John, Jesus at one point says "unless you believe that I AM, you will surely perish in your sins". only God is ever referenced to as I AM, and Jesus and everyone else knew it.
I will approach this subject in 2 ways; defining what "man" is and what "God" is, then will investigate to which our Lord Jesus Christ belong.
What is a man (or a human)? I will make a reference of myself because I am one. I am human because I am a person; a person that was born from another person, & eventually will die; with flesh & bones that can pass the test of being a human using all of our five senses. I get tired, hungry, and everything that all of us experiencing each day of our life.
Now we'll ask; did our Lord Jesus Christ have these qualities of man that I've mentioned above?
We can all relate to the story what happened in the little town of Bethlehem over 2,000 ago, that Baby Jesus was born from Mary, a human that was born to another human. And as He grew & fulfilled His mission here on earth, He experienced tiredness, hunger, anger, happiness, sadness, & even death, which many of us believe that is the great equalizer that a man faces. With ALL these attributes, therefore we can conclude that Jesus is MAN.
What is GOD? An everlasting, no end or beginning, was not born or experienced death, a spirit with no flesh & bones, and I can go on & on, but do all these attributes of being GOD found in our Lord Jesus Christ? NO, for He is Man & NOT GOD!

Instead of concluding with your own reasoning (why is that superior to the bible?), I'd say Jesus is at the very least God, as that's what the bible says, and not your own reasoning.... but really, the best conclusion is what is the orthodox position on the matter... that Jesus is both God, and man.
(based on bible reasoning and yours)

Reasons for voting decision: It makes sense to quote from the Bible to support your arguments in a Christian debate, I suppose. Pro should have ruled it out at the beginning if he'd wanted to.
