Because he had common sense,

Jesus was smarter than you make Him out to be.

and he is a revelation of the Father.

Jesus is God incarnate.

He is God the Son.

Jesus didn’t act like the God of the OT scriptures,

Because you say so?

Because, as far as I can tell, Jesus spoke with God's authority.

Especially in that, where the Old Testament uses "Thus saith the Lord," Jesus in the New Testament said, "I say unto you." Not once is either phrase found in the other Testament.

Also, truth is non-contradictory. The following statements from your post which I am quoting here contradict each other:

"[Jesus] is a revelation of the Father
"Jesus didn’t act like the God of the OT scriptures"

If Jesus is a revelation of the Father, but He didn't act like the Father, then He wouldn't be a representation of the Father, let alone a good one.

Jesus said He and His Father are one.
Jesus said that He says the things His Father says.

That goes against your claims.

a God largely created in the image of the men who wrote the OT books.

And what about the men who supposedly created God is reflected in the image of God?

Hmm?

Because the Bible says that God created man in HIS image and likeness, not the other way around. And because of that, any attributes that God has are reflected in man, not the other way around.

Jesus taught a new religion which was different than the OT way of thinking.

Jesus taught the law of the Old Testament. It was nothing new.

Now, PAUL on the other hand...

Jesus was our Creator Son incarnate, not the Universal Father. The Sons are made in the image of the Father.

The God revealed in the Life of Jesus wasn't the blood thirsty erratic monster God portrayed by the Israelites. While the Israelites may well have committed the atrocities blamed on God. If ISIS were writing scripture today it would sound a lot like some of the places in the OT where God supposedly said go do thus and so.....kill all the war captives civilian's but keep the little virgin girls for yourselves. Common human behavior for that age, not directed by God!

Humans blunder when they assume that God acts and behaves as savage humans do.

Created in his image and likeness means that we have within us the "pure spirit" of the Universal Father as does the Paradise Trinity.

Jesus taught The Gospel of The Kingdom of Heaven for 3+ years before being apprehended by the Jews who were offended by his Liberal teachings.

Jesus was our Creator

Jesus is THE Creator.

Son incarnate, not the Universal Father.

No trinitarian claims that Jesus, who is God the Son, is God the Father. Why do you use such a straw man?

The Sons are made in the image of the Father.

Stolen concept fallacy.

Man is made in God's image.

Yes, Adam was a son of God, in the sense that he was made by God.

However, Jesus is THE Son of God. He comes forth from the Father, but is still the eternal God.

The way that "son (little 's') of God" is used is an analogy of the Son, Jesus, who is the Son of God the Father, yet is still God, the difference being, and where the analogy breaks down, is that a "son of God" is not God.

The "sons of God" in Job 38:7 are described as being present at the time of the laying of Earth's foundations, ie, when God created everything on the earth except the crust (which occurred on days 2 and 3 in Genesis 1) and the ocean (Genesis 1:2). Since God made man on day 6, Job 38:7 logically cannot be referring to man, but to angels, since those are the only other creatures that God created that could possibly live without the earth (no, aliens don't exist.)

The God revealed in the Life of Jesus wasn't the blood thirsty erratic monster God portrayed by the Israelites.

Oh that's cute. You think God appears bloodthirsty in the Old Testament? Try reading Revelation, which hasn't happened yet.

But God is NOT "bloodthirsty," as you put it.

He is just. He is righteous. He is merciful.

I DARE YOU to cite a passage where you think God is portrayed as "bloodthirsty," and try to explain how He is by using nothing but the scriptures. In order to show how my position does not portray God accurately, you need to show it using my position (not yours).

While the Israelites may well have committed the atrocities blamed on God.

If the Creator of the universe wants to use a nation to destroy another nation that is unjust, who are you to call it an atrocity?

Does not the Creator have a right to do with His creation as He sees fit?

Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor? - Romans 9:21 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans9:21&version=NKJV

See above.

Caino blunders when he assumes that God is unjust when he commands men to do His will.

False.

Created in the image and likeness of God means that we are physically similar in appearance to the image that God created for His Son on day 6 for Him to indwell, and then used to fashion man into when He formed man from the dust of the ground, and that we, being in His likeness, are morally capable creatures, and have some of the characteristics of God.

as does the Paradise Trinity.

No such thing in scripture, whatever that is.

Jesus taught The Gospel of The Kingdom of Heaven for 3+ years

I'll make it easy for you. Jesus' ministry lasted about three years.

The number three is everywhere in scripture.

before being apprehended by the Jews who were offended by his Liberal teachings.

They were offended because He blinded them (since they had hardened their hearts to God) from seeing the Truth of who He is, for the purpose of accomplishing His will from the foundation of the earth.

His teachings were completely in line with the scriptures. "Liberal," they were not.

Numbers 31:17-18​

King James Version​

17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.
18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

* God blinded the Jews....but then punished them for not listening! That's rich! That's why you are a false prophet and easily dismissed.

* Men blunder when they rationalize their own wicked hearts by claiming God told them to go slaughter people.


Just a few examples of the blood thirsty monster God portrayed by the ISIS-like, but ultimately discredited Israelites.



Note: In the Bible, words having to do with killing significantly outnumber words having to do with love.

GE 3:1-7, 22-24 God allows Adam and Eve to be deceived by the Serpent (the craftiest of all of God's wild creatures). They eat of the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil," thereby incurring death for themselves and all of mankind for ever after. God prevents them from regaining eternal life, by placing a guard around the "Tree of Eternal Life." (Note: God could have done the same for the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil" in the first place and would thereby have prevented the Fall of man, the necessity for Salvation, the Crucifixion of Jesus, etc.)

GE 4:2-8 God's arbitrary preference of Abel's offering to that of Cain's provokes Cain to commit the first biblically recorded murder and kill his brother Abel.

GE 19:26 God personally sees to it that Lot's wife is turned to a pillar of salt (for having looked behind her while fleeing the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah).

GE 38:9 "... whenever he lay with his brother's wife, he spilled his semen on the ground to keep from producing offspring for his brother. What he did was wicked ..., so the Lord put him to death."

EX 2:12 Moses murders an Egyptian.

EX 7:1, 14, 9:14-16, 10:1-2, 11:7 The purpose of the devastation that God brings to the Egyptians is as follows:
to show that he is Lord;
to show that there is none like him in all the earth;
to show his great power;
to cause his name to be declared throughout the earth;
to give the Israelites something to talk about with their children;
to show that he makes a distinction between Israel and Egypt.

EX 9:22-25 A plague of hail from the Lord strikes down everything in the fields of Egypt both man and beast except in Goshen where the Israelites reside.

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:“Take vengeance on the Midianites for the children of Israel. Afterward you shall be gathered to your people.” - Numbers 31:1-2 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Numbers31:1-2&version=NKJV

"Vengeance is mine." says the Lord.

And guess what the Israelites did?

They didn't obey God. Not even in the passage you claim wasn't actually God speaking.

Here's what happened:

Then they brought the captives, the booty, and the spoil to Moses, to Eleazar the priest, and to the congregation of the children of Israel, to the camp in the plains of Moab by the Jordan, across from Jericho.And Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the congregation, went to meet them outside the camp.But Moses was angry with the officers of the army, with the captains over thousands and captains over hundreds, who had come from the battle.And Moses said to them: “Have you kept all the women alive?Look, these women caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to trespass against the Lord in the incident of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the Lord.Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known a man intimately.But keep alive for yourselves all the young girls who have not known a man intimately.And as for you, remain outside the camp seven days; whoever has killed any person, and whoever has touched any slain, purify yourselves and your captives on the third day and on the seventh day.Purify every garment, everything made of leather, everything woven of goats’ hair, and everything made of wood.”Then Eleazar the priest said to the men of war who had gone to the battle, “This is the ordinance of the law which the Lord commanded Moses:Only the gold, the silver, the bronze, the iron, the tin, and the lead,everything that can endure fire, you shall put through the fire, and it shall be clean; and it shall be purified with the water of purification. But all that cannot endure fire you shall put through water.And you shall wash your clothes on the seventh day and be clean, and afterward you may come into the camp.” - Numbers 31:12-24 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Numbers31:12-24&version=NKJV

So, did they make up that they disobeyed? or did God tell them to do one thing, and then they did something they shouldn't have?

Your claims don't line up with the story told in the Bible, Caino.

* God blinded the Jews....but then punished them for not listening!

No, that's not what I said.

Where did I say God punished them for being blind to what he had blinded them?

I said that God blinded the ones who refused to see, deafened the ones who refused to listen, to accomplish His task, which was, at the time, dying on the Cross.

That's rich! That's why you are a false prophet and easily dismissed.

When you straw man your opponent, you reveal yourself as the fool that you are.

You said "They were offended because He blinded them (since they had hardened their hearts to God) from seeing the Truth of who He is, for the purpose of accomplishing His will from the foundation of the earth.


I'm the one who said they were punished by God even though you claim he had blinded them even though the same God who blinded them also punished them. That's rich! The Jews were blinded by pride not God.

That I did.

I'm the one who said they were punished by God

Why did you say that then?

How and why were they punished by God? For what reason?

even though you claim he had blinded them even though the same God who blinded them also punished them.

Blinding the nation of Israel so that they cannot see (especially when the blindness was only to Hide who Jesus was temporarily) does not give them an out when they refuse to obey after said task has been accomplished.

That's rich! The Jews were blinded by pride not God.

Well, no, their pride caused them to cover their own eyes, and so God used them in their rebellion against Him to accomplish His plan.

That's what the Bible says.

You are the fool for having to carry the water of such a convoluted story.

The Bible isn't written at the 6th grade level, Caino. The Bible is a complex story of God's chosen people. It's not as cut and dried as you like it to be.

29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the monuments of the righteous, 30 saying, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31
(reason)---->Thus you witness against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers. 33 You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell? 34 Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will flog in your synagogues and persecute from town to town, 35 so that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah the son of Barachiah,[f] whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. 36 Truly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.29

The Jews were un-chosen, protections withdrawn, house left open to Titus's army and the day of Gentile vengeance!

20. Parable of the Absent Landlord​

33“Hear another parable. There was a householder who planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country. 34When the season of fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants, to get his fruit; 35and the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another. 36Again he sent other servants, more than the first; and they did the same to them. 37Afterward he sent his son to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.' 38But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.' 39And they took him and cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. 40When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?”
41They said to him, “He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and let out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons.” 16When they heard this, they said, “God forbid!”
42Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the scriptures: 'The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner; this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes'? 43(how)---->Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing the fruits of it. 44And he who falls on this stone, while he is thereby broken in pieces, will be saved; but when it falls on anyone, it will crush him.”

45When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they perceived that he was speaking about them.a 46But when they tried to arrest him, they feared the multitudes, because they held him to be a prophet.
(Mt. 21:33–41; Lk. 20:16; Mt. 21:42–46)
