Thanks CON for instigating.

Any Christian brother please clarify my doubts and debate with me

Okay, I will clarify. You are taking the CON position on "how jesus can be god", you are doubting that Jesus Christ can't be God because of, well, your doubts. That's why we have this debate, which I accepted so you can argue and prove that Jesus can't be God.

Now, moving on, the Trinity, a Christian doctrine that defines God as 3 define people (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), and in this case, 'Son' is reffered to Jesus Christ [1]. I will present the Gospel of John from the New Testament the Bible as evidence, since it's is an accurate and a valid source of reference to religious discussions and teachings such as this because it is considered a historical document, a sacred scripture according to various religions [2], like the Catholic Church, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church clearly states that the Catholic Church’s view on the Bible is the word of God and that it teaches the truth [3], and we can take their word for it because the Catholic Church is absolute and has been a great influence on religious society.

The doctrine states that Jesus was truly God, and yet was a Person distinct from the Father and the Holy Spirit. [4]

Examples from the New Testament:

John 1:1-3

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.

John 10:30

I and the Father are one.

[http://www.biblegateway.com...]

John 5:18

This was why the Jews were seeking all the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.

[The Word referred to Jesus]
[http://www.biblegateway.com...]

These sources and arguments are not enough, so I'll save it for the next rounds if my opponent responds and argues thoroughly with reasonable arguments with accurate references.

So, in conclusion, my whole case above clearly shows that Jesus can be God because he is the Son of God, it has been adressed many times in the Bible that He and God are one.
