CAN CHRISTIANS CALL JESUS GOOD OR GOD ?

LUKE 18: 18 A certain ruler asked him,

Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal

life?”

Luke 18:19 And Jesus said unto him, Why

callest thou me good? none is good, save

one, that is, God.

Now I ask my Christian friends

CAN WE CALL JESUS GOOD ? OR CAN WE CALL

JESUS (P) GOD ? AND WHY IS JESUS CLEARLY

STATING ABOVE THAT HE IS DIFFERENT AND GOD IS

DIFFERENT ? JESUS (P) IS SAYING ABOVE There is

none good but one, SO BASICALLY THERE IS ONLY

ONE GOD WHO IS GOOD AND JESUS CLEARLY

DENIES HE IS A PART OF THAT GOD ABOVE ,

THAT IS WHY HE FORBADE THE MAN FROM CALLING HIM GOOD.

What answer do you have for the above ?

    In that period Jews refused to believe that Jesus was God. when this guy called him good, Jesus told him indirectly that no one was good except God. when people started calling Jesus “good”, it means that he is God. Because God is the only person who is good. Obviously Jesus said in an indirect manner that he had the qualities of God so that people started calling him GOOD prophet or Teacher. Only God can be called GOOD, so when they called Jesus Good , it means that he is God. In another verses Jesus told to the people that ” I am greater than abraham,solomon, and I am greater than temple of God”. who is greater than temple of God , God is only person who is greater than temple of God. so that Jesus indirectly said that he was God. He didn’t mention things in a direct manner. His actions proved that he was God. How we have spirit , soul and flesh in our body, God has a 3 dimensions which is father, son or word, and holy spirit. Glory to Jesus, Amen.

    In that period Jews refused to believe that Jesus was God. when this guy called him good, Jesus told him indirectly that no one was good except God. Every one has at least a flaw in their life, bible calls us evil people or adulterous generations.God is only flawless and Good. when people started calling Jesus “good”, it means that he is God. Because God is the only person who is good. Obviously Jesus said in an indirect manner that he had the qualities of God so that people started calling him GOOD prophet or Teacher.But they could not understand him that he was God in flesh. Only God can be called GOOD, so when they called Jesus Good , it means that he is God. In another verses Jesus told to the people that ” I am greater than abraham,solomon, and I am greater than temple of God”. Who is greater than temple of God ?, God is only person who is greater than the temple of God. so that Jesus indirectly said that he was God because they started calling him Good. He didn’t mention things in a direct manner. His actions proved that he was God. He wants us to trust in his word and have faith in him, not Just have faith in him by seeing miracles. How we have spirit , soul and flesh in our body, God has a 3 dimensions which is father, son or word, and holy spirit. Bible says in pslam that “God will be exalted among the nations”. In true life you can really see that Christians are greater in quantity and quality of their life when it comes in terms of the world. Christian nations are so rich and blessed, for example countries like US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Italy and etc are so wealthy and blessed. Countries like saudi arabia and some Islamic countries are also blessed. But they can never reach the standard of a Christian country. In fact countries like Somalia, nigeria are very poor, but still following Islam. I can pinpoint so many Islamic nations are so poor and fighting for their basic life needs. Muslims got their blessings through Abraham and Hagar. Hagar was a servant maid of Abraham, she gave birth to Abraham a son who was Ishmael. Ishmael was not a son of promise , he was a son of Abraham’s self decision because of pressure from sarah. But Israel was a son of promise. Israel was so blessed in the old testament. but when they refused Messiah or Jesus Christ, the whole blessings of Abraham went to christians.True God is God of blessings and his generations will be blessed forever and ever. Jesus wants to bless every one. Glory to Jesus christ who is the son of the True living God, he is also God. This is a divine mystery, we need revealtion from God to understand this divine mystery. God only has to open the eyes of the Muslims to perceive Jesus who made the heaven and earth.Amen.Glory to My Dady Jesus christ. Amen

    Practice that thou preacheth sayeth the lord..that you may see the kingdom of god. The big question is how many religious institutions practises that of their holy book, be it Bible, Kuran, Gita , tanak or many more present all over the world.. Ofcourse many does practise their own preachings than that of these gems of holy books. Anyway it wouldn’t matter if Jesus is called good or god..

    good means “I’m one amoung you”.
    god means “I’m above all of you”.

    god is above us and living by his ways is impossible.. so we will be curropt.

    Calling him good is the better way… atleast makes it easier to follow.. when a man can be that godly why cant we??.. but will the so called “Christians” allow him to be made a man.. when he,s already been given the title of god..

    anyway I’m a christian too, and I’m concerned about the way holy books get distorted at the hands of the teachers. and the way the teachings are made.. Its better to make Jesus a man and have many follow . than make him god and have blind rituals and formalities.
