Jesus said "Only God can forgive sin. I can forgive sin!" [Spirituality & Religion]

He said is it easier to say your sin is forgiven or heal the crippled, and raise the dead? Then He healed the crippled and raised a man who had been rotting 4 days and smelled. 500 saw his body raised from the dead and were tortured for witnessing. Who was He? If you say he was a Prophet then Jesus was a liar, because he said he was God? No good prophet is a liar, right.
1. Liar?
2. Lunatic?
3. God?

[@360493,Pikachu] Empathy for the world and those hurting comes from God, romantic fantasies are not. Clear difference! Of course I am not saying that all people with empathy are Christians, but all love stems from God whether people know it or not. And I don't want you to put me in with those women who marry criminals, I go visit my clients, whether they are in prison, the hospital, or in court as support as my clients, no other relationship, and for no other reason.

[@360493,Pikachu] I didn't think that but just wanted to make that perfectly clear ha ha!

Just something some dudes made up so you will give them your money and let them tell you what to do so they don't have to work for a living.

Martha had boldly asked Jesus if He could resurrect her brother, Lazarus. Well, Jesus was a great believer in women and ,without a doubt, Martha was very well thought of by Jesus. In fact, Jesus' attitude towards women remains the earliest in recognizing their worth! A phenomenal being and, on the strength of that alone, it would be of great value to anyone to listen to the words He spoke.

Patti Smith said "Jesus died for somebodys sins but not mine, my sins belong to me". I tend to agree
Carazaa · F
[@800238,OldHippie] Yes our sins do belong to us and we should be punished for our own sins!

[@889684,Carazaa] Take responsibility, face the consequences

[@800238,OldHippie] But if someone like God says he will take all my sins away then I am good with that and I will be grateful!

3 - one part of the Christian concept of the Holy trinity.
God has three manifestations, God the Father
God the son (Jesus)
God the Holy spirit

He was God's son, as written in the Bible. Can't believe how you forgot putting that in the list.

[@336516,MartinTheFirst] [b]Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? 24 But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” 25 Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God. 26 Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, “We have seen remarkable things today.” Luke 5:23 [/b]Jesus was proving that he could forgive sins which is our biggest need, not to walk!

[@889684,Carazaa] [quote]And He did the miracles to prove only He can forgive sin.[/quote]
No he did that to prove that he has the ability to forgive sin, through showing that something that seems more difficult to humans is easy for him to do. Not that only [i]he[/i] can do it:

[@336516,MartinTheFirst] Jesus is God! It is He who will judge the world when he comes again. The first time he came as a lamb the second he will come as a lion. God himself stepped down to save the world. And he is coming again to judge the living and the dead!

[b]"I AM Alpha and Omega"[/b] Jesus says Rev 22:13

[b]"I come quickly"[/b] REV 22:20 Jesus says in Revelations


"[b]I AM the way the truth and the life[/b]" Jesus says John 14:6
[b]
"Then Moses said to God, Suppose I go to the Israelites and they ask who sent you? What is his name? What shall I tell them? "I AM WHO I AM", say [b]"I AM has sent me to you" Exodus 3:13-14

[/b]
[b]"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad."[/b] 2 Cor 5:10
Probably 1, possibly 2.

[@374012,NortiusMaximus] that's not the Hell in question🤗
[@889684,Carazaa] At least those two are real places. I believe there's another in California and possibly New York state. Could one of those be the one referred to? [@518819,veeshalgreek] seems to have left so I can't ask him.

None of the above. He was a religious prophet.

[@889684,Carazaa] Him and his followers believed what they believed.

[@897843,NoxDivina] That's just it they did [b]NOT[/b] believe at all until they saw him raised from the dead. They were sceptics! Then they Got it. It takes some longer than others.

[@889684,Carazaa] It's a cool story for sure.

The real story is different.
Emortal · M
[@889684,Carazaa] well, if you take those miracled to be true word for word because it's written, tell me how days and nights were counted in the Genesis before the moon and sun were created, because those are listed in the 3rd or 4th day.

[@492052,Emortal] Yes God did give us the lights to see but there was light before that!

[@492052,Emortal] How is the story different?
Did he (Jesus) not forgive Mary Magdeline?
Carazaa · F
[@822235,soar2newhighs] YEs He did. But how do we know that? It is easy to say I forgive you, than healing the lame. Only God can heal the lame completely. Jesus did. So he can also forgive all our sins.
in what context did he say it?
Carazaa · F
[@980195,IseeBeautifulThingsAroundYou] To prove he is God!
