    Is Jesus a demigod?

    I have heard some people express that Jesus is a demigod. Reach these people with the gospel, the truth of God's Word the Bible.

    dem·i·god

    /ˈdemēˌɡäd/

    noun

    a being with partial or lesser divine status, such as a minor deity, the offspring of a god and a mortal, or a mortal raised to divine rank.

    "some Roman emperors claimed descent from demigods such as Hercules"

    a man who is greatly admired or respected.

    "a former juvenile delinquent who would become a counterculture demigod"

    Beloved, believe not every spirit,
    but try the spirits whether they are of God:
    because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

    1 John 4:1 NASB - Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

    No....

    He is God, one of the triune nature of God.
    The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

    Jesus is not a being with partial or lesser divine status.
    Jesus is not a minor deity.

    Jesus is the offspring of a god and a mortal, which by definition makes Him a demigod.
    Jesus is a mortal raised to divine status but Jesus already had divine status before giving it up to become a mortal, so this does not count.

    Jesus matches one definition of a demigod, but Jesus is not a demigod.

    Jesus is a mortal raised to divine status but Jesus already had divine status before giving it up to become a mortal, so this does not count.

    Jesus matches one definition of a demigod, but Jesus is not a demigod.
    The offspring of a God and a mortal? No.

    Divine status before giving it up to become a mortal? No.
