The gospel truth about Jesus

Filmed yesterday at Speakers Corner. Christian evangelist Richard concedes that the gospel of John does not give us the historical words of Jesus, but is in fact a highly interpreted account created by John. This is the consensus view of New Testament scholars (Christian & non-Christian) around the world. This being so, it poses a huge challenge to Christian evangelism which relies so heavily on the Gospel of John.  If the historical Jesus did not say the ‘I am’ statements attributed to him, can Christians in good conscience continue to pretend he did? Furthermore, I suggest that the Church’s pastors, priests and ministers who know these things fail to pass on the truth of the gospels to their congregations. This is an intellectual scandal. Richard does not disagree.

      quote :
      Second, if we are to accept Jesus at his word, then when he said the rich man lacked one thing, we are not permitted to say he lacked two things. In context, the one thing he lacked was obedience to the commandment to love his neighbor as himself, which would require that he contribute to helping the poor (Leviticus 19:18). Since that qualifies as “one thing”, then apparently the second part of Jesus’ answer “come and follow me” is more or less an afterthought, an invitation to do something that might be a good idea, but which is not essential. Yes, Jesus did indeed teach that entry into the kingdom of God could be achieved simply by following the law, Matthew 5:19, so Christians who say Jesus thought following him was essential to salvation, are not appreciating his original legalistic teaching.

      It needs to be emphasized that when Jesus said that man lacked “one thing”, Jesus contradicts Paul. Paul taught that everybody is sinful all day, every day, Romans 3:19-20. Paul would never have said that any certain person’s obedience to Mosaic law lacked “one thing”. On the other hand, if Jesus knew that the rich man lacked many things in his attempted obedience to Mosaic law, he would not have characterized such omissions as “one” thing. The problem therefore is that Jesus certainly disagreed with Paul and believed that a human being was capable of correctly obeying the full Mosaic Law. Luke agrees that sinners can obey the law to such a degree that God views them righteous for no other reason except their obedience to Mosaic Law, see Luke 1:5-6.

    • “No, the law is not garbage because it’s purpose is to show you how dirty you are, because you can never live up to it. (see Matthew 5:21-30) it condemns you and judges you as a hopeless sinner and forces you to see that you need a Savior / Mediatory / sacrifice / perfect man who never sinned who paid the penalty of sin for you.”

      how come the jews say completely the opposite?

      i quote

      This argument relies upon abuse of scripture and denies Tanach. By arguing that the Law brings only a knowledge of sinfulness and condemnation, Paul has greatly misled his audience and denied the promise of God. He makes the blessing of God for keeping the law to be a chimera. He makes it a joke. By writing that God demands perfection, he annuls the blessing altogether. Because no condition exists, according to Paul, under which one can receive the blessing promised for keeping the Law, in reality, the Law is only a curse. So, Paul preaches a grace through faith, rather than through the Law.
      But this is not the teaching of Tanach. Ezekiel writes that HaShem takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. Instead, he wishes them to turn from their ways and live (Ez. 33:10-16). He wishes them to make restitution for the wrong done. And they are to return to observing the Torah. This means that, according to Tanach, the transgressor is restored to God through Torah, through the Law. And when the wicked turns from his ways: “None of the sins that they have committed shall be remembered against them; they have done what is lawful and right, they shall surely live (Ez. 33:16). This teaching is in stark contrast to Paul’s teaching that one cannot be justified by the Law.
      Consider also Isaiah 1. As Isaiah castigates the Jewish people for their injustice, he tells them how to become close to God again. And the answer is to return to Torah, to do justice: “Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow” (vv. 16-17). As they are being condemned by their breaking of the law, they can be saved by keeping it. Paul’s argument that no one can be justified through the deeds of the law, but only through faith in Jesus, contradicts Tanach.
      In fact, Paul outright lies to make the case. In Deut. 30, Moses teaches the people that they can keep the law. He tells them that the Torah is near to them, on their lips and in their heart, so that they can perform it (Deut. 30:14). Paul cuts off the end of the verse and makes the verse to be about believing in Jesus. The lips of Deut. 30 he makes to be about confessing Jesus to be lord and the heart, believing in the resurrection. Paul has altered the meaning of the passage altogether. The passage contradicts Paul’s teaching that one cannot keep the Torah. And it has nothing to do with belief in Jesus, or even the Messiah generally.
      Considering these facts, one cannot say that Paul is vindicating Israel’s trust in God. On the contrary, he denies the principles upon which that trust is built. He has likened the disbelieving Jew to a priest of Baal and denied that God will bless them for keeping Torah. He has replaced trust in God with trust in Jesus. And to do this, he has misrepresented HaShem’s holy Torah. Paul’s purpose of quoting Ps. 95 was not to indict Israel’s enemies, but those of Israel that did not confess Jesus as lord or believe in his resurrection. His goal was to vindicate, not Israel, but believers in Jesus, some of which just happened to be Jewish. To achieve this goal, he lied. He maligned those that trust in God, and worse, he maligned HaShem’s holy Torah.

      Anyone who reads Matthew 5:21-30 (about the roots of murder being anger and hatred; and the roots of adultery being mental lusting) and says “obeying the law is easy” is deceiving themselves.

      Paul, you even admitted at one time, for a few days, that the disciples of praying 5 times a day and getting up early and fasting during Ramadan were too hard for you and left Islam for a few days and then came back. What do you think now? Do you really think those external rituals are harder than the internal sins that Jesus talks about in Matthew 5:21-30 and His law for perfection (Matthew 5:48) and loving one’s enemies (Matthew 5:38-48)?

      My goodness, that (those external disciplines of ritual prayers and fasting) is NOTHING compared to the internal sinful thoughts, roots of external sins – jealousy, anger, hatred, pride, arrogance, lusts, selfishness, bitterness, greed, coveting, (the 10th commandment).

      See Mark 7:20-23
      And He was saying, “That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, 22 deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness. 23 All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man.”

      wrong reply. the stilling of the storm could have been achieved by the disciples. you can move mountains with faith, in mark faith is enough to stop a storm, the pals didn’t have any “do you still have no faith” ? they could have achieved this miracle and let jesus sleep.

      when he was walking on water he was not claiming to be the yhwh hovering on water in genesis, he was trying to tell his pals that he isn’t a ghost. he identified himself as a human.

    • The Greek word for worship here is “Proskuneo” which according to the lexicon means “to pay homage or reverence to priests, saints, but also to God. The same word is used in Acts 10:25 “When Peter entered, Cornelius met him, and fell at his feet and worshiped him (prosekinisen)”.

      Worship that only God deserves is calles “Latreia” in the NT. Jesus and other human beings are given “proskuneo” but never “latreia”, which is only given to God the Father.

      Liked by 1 person

    • proskuneo is also used for God only in Rev. 19:10 and 22:8-9. yes, it can be used for paying homage to someone of a higher rank, a human king, etc. but these contexts show that it means worship only for God.

    It is like In Job chapter 1-2 and 2 Cor. 12:7-10 – God allowed Satan to attack Job and a messenger of Satan (a demon) the apostle Paul, but God does not do the sin itself.
    The others are Jesus when in His human incarnated state (Philippians 2:5-8; John 1:14) – he humbled Himself to be a human
    I say;
    You have audacity to blame someone’s God when he judges but you will vehemently supports your God, sends delusions to people.
    Your last paragraph is talking about God humbling Himself as incarnated being. Well, that is the concept of idol worship where God will incarnate into other beings like man, monkey, elephants, snakes of the Hindus and voodoo idol worshipers. They believe God can humble Himself into His creature just like you. We do not believe God the un created can be created like Jesus, monkey, snake, elephant, Haile Selaissie, cow etc. It is blaspheme punishable in hell fire if one does not repent and desist from thinking God become His creation i.e. idol belief.

    you don’t even see it as a guidance to live a good life. the jews see it as guidance to live good life and make it to heaven. since in your mind the job of your torah is to expose sinners, then why you call torah “law” ? it should be called “exposer”
    law is to show you where you went wrong and how to fix yourself and trust the GUIDANCE. you trust a bloody sacrifice and church instructional manual. you being christian need church manual to judge other christians. so you prefer your church manual over torah, right?

    Moses the Mediator of God’s Will
    22 These words the Lord spoke with a loud voice to your whole assembly at the mountain, out of the fire, the cloud, and the thick darkness, and he added no more. He wrote them on two stone tablets, and gave them to me. 23 When you heard the voice out of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, you approached me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders; 24 and you said, “Look, the Lord our God has shown us his glory and greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the fire. Today we have seen that God may speak to someone and the person may still live. 25 So now why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of the Lord our God any longer, we shall die. 26 For who is there of all flesh that has heard the voice of the living God speaking out of fire, as we have, and remained alive? 27 Go near, you yourself, and hear all that the Lord our God will say. Then tell us everything that the Lord our God tells you, and we will listen and do it.”

    28 The Lord heard your words when you spoke to me, and the Lord said to me: “I have heard the words of this people, which they have spoken to you; they are right in all that they have spoken. 29 If only they had such a mind as this, to fear me and to keep all my commandments always, so that it might go well with them and with their children forever! 30 Go say to them, ‘Return to your tents.’ 31 But you, stand here by me, and I will tell you all the commandments, the statutes and the ordinances, that you shall teach them, so that they may do them in the land that I am giving them to possess.” 32 You must therefore be careful to do as the Lord your God has commanded you; you shall not turn to the right or to the left. 33 You must follow exactly the path that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live, and that it may go well with you, and that you may live long in the land that you are to possess.

    • Except Yahweh shows in the whole narrative of the Old Testament, that even when He gives Israel the law to obey and He expects them to obey, the narrative of the whole OT from Genesis to Malachi is that they ALWAYS fail to keep the law. God expects Israel (and us) to obey, but He also knows that we cannot obey the law perfectly. Jesus shows us that in a more explicit, clear, and amazing and new way in the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5, 6, & 7 – that was Yahweh in the OT’s original intent that was implied in Deut. 6:4-7; 5:29; 10:16; 30:6, but you guys are missing that completely.

      Just look at the sins of Noah (after the flood – the text is obvious trying to show that even after the flood and after destroying everyone else, those 8 people still have a sinful nature (original sin from Adam) within them, Ham (same issue, different specific sin, after the flood), Abraham, David, Solomon, Israel and the rebukes that the prophets constantly make at them because of their sins – especially Isaiah and Jeremiah and Ezekiel.

      Even Yahweh (for the sake of argument, I am using this is the way you are assuming – you don’t see the connection with Jesus’ interpretation of the law in Matthew 5, Mark 7, Matthew 15) in the OT is trying to get them to see that it is heart issue – Genesis 6:5-6; 8:21; Deut. 5:29; 10:16; 30:6, Jeremiah chapters 3-4; 9:23-24; 17:10

      In Ezekiel 36:26-27 & Jeremiah 31 – Yahweh says he will give them a new heart in the new covenant. The OT predicts the coming of the New Covenant – the teaching of Jesus the Messiah in the New Covenant.

      Because you guys
      1. are skipping the NT and going back to the OT; and
      2. Also you isolate and atomize a few pet verses (like the way Paul Williams isolates “that you may obey it” from the rest of context in Deut. 30:11-14 ) for your own purposes without knowing the flow of the OT and the connection with the New Testament.

      therefore, you miss the entire meaning of the whole Bible – the OT and the NT together as BOTH the inspired Word of God with a progressive revelation and consistent theology and story-line of historical truth.

      You are missing one of the main points of the whole Bible, once you read it from start to finish and see the progressive flow of Old covenant to the New covenant. (from the law/sharia of Mosa flowing to the Injeel Al Masih)

  13. ” is NOTHING compared to the internal sinful thoughts, roots of external sins – jealousy, anger, hatred, pride, arrogance, lusts, selfishness, bitterness, greed, coveting, (the 10th commandment).””

    here is the jewish response to your problems which you experience :

    The Church imagines a god with a foreshortened arm, a god with no strength. He is a god bound in rules and either unable or unwilling to forgive unless suffering is inflicted upon someone, even the innocent. In Ezekiel 33:10, the people have said: “Our transgressions and our sins weigh upon us, and we waste away because of them; how then can we live?” The Church echoes this question. It is the question on the lips of every missionary. But the answer of the Church does not match that of Ezekiel. The answer of the Church does not match that of HaShem. Ezekiel continues: “Say to them, ‘As I live,’ says the Lord God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn back from their ways and live.’” The Church might acknowledge that HaShem has no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but then it responds that He takes pleasure in the death of the righteous. But this is not what Ezekiel says. Ezekiel says that HaShem wishes that we would turn away from our ways. HaShem says of those that turn back to Him: “None of the sins that they have committed shall be remembered against them; they have done what is lawful and right, they shall surely live” (Ez. 33:16). No one need die for the sins of another; one need only turn back to HaShem.
    The Church will say that this is to make light of God’s righteousness. They will say that someone must pay the penalty for sin, if not the sinner then someone. In this, they echo what the people say in Ezekiel: “The way of the Lord is not just…” (Ezekiel 33:17). It does not seem right to them that HaShem would ‘just’ forgive a person. But HaShem’s response is that “it is their own way that is not just” (Ezekiel 33:17). And He reiterates that He desires the wicked to repent: “And when the wicked turn from their wickedness, and do what is lawful and right, they shall live by it” (Ez. 33:19).

    Sadly, the Church often portrays this teaching as trusting in one’s own righteousness. But this is not the case at all. Indeed, this is trust in the promise of HaShem, trust in His love and in His goodness and in His mercy. This is the God that assured Moses of His mercy: “…a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for the thousandth generation” (Ex. 34:7). We can be assured of His kindness extended toward us. So assured can we be that we know that if he punishes us, it is for our good, an act of kindness: “My child, do not despise the Lord’s discipline or be weary of his reproof, for the Lord reproves the one he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights” (Prov. 3:11-12). Such punishments are a call to return to Him, where we are assured of His forgiveness, mercy, and generosity.

    One of the blessings of God is the conscience. It serves to motivate one to review his actions, to see if he has not violated God’s precepts, to see if he has not ill-used another. Guilt, when used properly, is a blessing, urging the sinner to return to HaShem. But guilt can be a burden to those that do not properly heed it. The guilty can become hopeless, feeling he may never be right with God, as those in Ezekiel. The Church compounds this guilt by telling its adherents that they are so bad that God could never forgive them. Not only that, an innocent man needed to be terribly shamed, beaten, and murdered on their behalf. This can create in incredibly over-powering guilt in people, creating in them the sense that they are worthless.
    All this leads to the mistake of putting their trust in a man rather than in HaShem. Because they have been told that HaShem could never tolerate them, He feels forever far away. Moreover, He is an object of fear, because He would destroy them. Jesus on the other hand, rather than wanting to destroy them, was willing to suffer and die for them. His love appears to the Christian to be so much greater than the love of God. God was willing to send someone else to die. Jesus was willing to actually do the dying.
    And so his trust and affection is given to a man.

    All the while, he does not know that HaShem did not need someone to die for Him. He does not know that HaShem loves him enough to forgive him if he will but make amends and return to HaShem. He does not know that his trust in a man is misplaced, but trust in HaShem can never be misplaced. HaShem does not wish his destruction. Nor is HaShem powerless to forgive those that have violated His Torah.
    You are right to put your trust in HaShem.

    your bible DEMOLISHES you again :

    9In the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel, Asa became king of Judah, 10and he reigned in Jerusalem forty-one years. His grandmother’s name was Maakah daughter of Abishalom.

    11Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as his father David had done. 12He expelled the male shrine prostitutes from the land and got rid of all the idols his ancestors had made. 13He even deposed his grandmother Maakah from her position as queen mother, because she had made a repulsive image for the worship of Asherah. Asa cut it down and burned it in the Kidron Valley. 14Although he did not remove the high places, Asa’s heart was fully committed to the Lord all his life. 15He brought into the temple of the Lord the silver and gold and the articles that he and his father had dedicated.

    16There was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel throughout their reigns. 17Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah and fortified Ramah to prevent anyone from leaving or entering the territory of Asa king of Judah.

    18Asa then took all the silver and gold that was left in the treasuries of the Lord’s temple and of his own palace. He entrusted it to his officials and sent them to Ben-Hadad son of Tabrimmon, the son of Hezion, the king of Aram, who was ruling in Damascus. 19“Let there be a treaty between me and you,” he said, “as there was between my father and your father. See, I am sending you a gift of silver and gold. Now break your treaty with Baasha king of Israel so he will withdraw from me.”

    20Ben-Hadad agreed with King Asa and sent the commanders of his forces against the towns of Israel. He conquered Ijon, Dan, Abel Beth Maakah and all Kinnereth in addition to Naphtali. 21When Baasha heard this, he stopped building Ramah and withdrew to Tirzah. 22Then King Asa issued an order to all Judah—no one was exempt—and they carried away from Ramah the stones and timber Baasha had been using there. With them King Asa built up Geba in Benjamin, and also Mizpah.

    23As for all the other events of Asa’s reign, all his achievements, all he did and the cities he built, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah? In his old age, however, his feet became diseased. 24Then Asa rested with his ancestors and was buried with them in the city of his father David. And Jehoshaphat his son succeeded him as king

    noah is so RIGHTEOUS he can save himself IN ANY TROUBLE

    Or if I bring a sword against that country and say
    guess who saves himself from this sword?

    DID god GIVE COMMANDS TO CONTROL these problems in OT days, yes or no?

    as we all know, you being a christian SUFFER from the list above, but you tell your WICKED heart that you are CLEARED from DIVINE punishment.

  16. is having passing thought adultery or is dwelling upon thought adultery? If yhwh thought dwelling upon thought is adultery ,why did he let Jews get away with putting adultery on animal and letting it die in wilderness? Adultery = execution, yet yhwh lets animal take the punishment? So hundreds of adulterous thought ,one can get away with simply by killing an animal.

    so it seems that yhwh used to take adultery lightly in those days.

    Your god told you to pluck your eye out, so are you blind yet?
