I'LL TELL YOU WHY?!... (I)
IT JUST MIGHT HELP YOU!
I'll tell you why I do not believe Jesus died for the sins of mankind. According to Timothy 3:16, "God was manifest in the flesh". Now, this was BEFORE the "trinity" was invented by the council of Nicaea (325 "A.D."), and the author means that Jesus was "God in the flesh", not just "part" of God, but all of God! Since God is the father of mankind, when He died for His children's sins, He was violating and contradicting His very own words as recorded in Deuteronomy 24:16 "The fathers shall NOT be put to death for the children, nor the children for the fathers! Everyone shall be put to death for his own sin!" I'm 100% certain that this is the word of YHVH God! I'm not sure at all about Timothy 3:16! But you must admit that God cannot violate His own express commands! Some may claim that Timothy 3:16 isn't to be taken literally, but if this isn't literally true, the entire edifice of the "New Testament" collapses, and along with it, Christian doctrine, which claims to be based on the literal truth of the "divine" Gospel!
Since I'm at it, I'll tell you why it's impossible for "God" to become "man". "To become" means just that! It doesn't mean "to pose as", or "to come disguised as". To say God became man means that He stopped being the perfect, all-wise, almighty Creator and became an imperfect, simple weak creature! The Church calls this "a mystery", but had it ever happened, it would be a tragedy! Having once become finite, limited in power and wisdom, frail and human, God would have been doomed to remain that way, for lack of ability to change back into the perfect, almighty being He once was. Just as imperfect foolish man can never, never become Almighty God (though so many have tried throughout the ages!), God will never, become man, and never has.
All this leads me to the inevitable statement: God cannot die! YHVH swears to it Himself: "For I lift up my hand to heaven and say, as I live forever!" Deuteronomy 32:40. "Have you not known? Have you not heard that the EVERLASTING GOD YHVH, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not nor is He weary!?" Isaiah 40:25. Now maybe the "god manifested in the flesh" of the New Testament died, but the true only Creator YHVH, never dies! He lives forever, He's everlasting! According to the New Testament, God was dead and buried for over a day! Now if the only God had really died, He would have had to stay that way! There just wasn't any other God around to "resurrect" Him! He was the ONLY God! And who was ruling and managing the universe while He was dead? Existence, all existence would have ceased immediately, had God been killed on Calvary, since everything exists by His Will alone!
All of this PROVES that the "God in the flesh" of the New Testament was NOT the True Almighty Creator, YHVH, AT ALL, but only another god of that category of gods described so strikingly by Jeremiah (chap. 10:11):
Thus shall you say to them: the gods that have NOT made the heavens and the earth, THESE shall PERISH from the earth and from under the heavens!" - "Shall a man make himself gods that are really no-gods?" (ibid 16:20).
OH YHVH, my strength and my stronghold, and my refuge in the day of trouble, UNTO YOU shall the nations come from the ends of the earth and shall say: 'Our fathers have inherited nothing but LIES, vanity and things wherein there is NO benefit!' (Jeremiah 16:19). "For I am God, and NOT MAN!" Hosea 11:9.
So, dear friend, leave those other gods, the three headed ones, the man- gods who die and perish. Come to YHVH, the ONE and ONLY, the EVERLASTING, the ONLY SAVIOUR, TODAY, AND LIVE, YOU AND YOUR SEED!
