Blasphemy of Yeshua (Jesus) is not Blasphemy of God
This discussion has not yet been rewritten or presented in the updated multi-part format. That will occur as God wills to provide me the time and energy to do so.
There are lots of examples showing how ridiculous and unscriptural the doctrine of a “God in the flesh” Messiah is. This is just one brief example among the many that could have been chosen.
32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
Parallel passages Mark 3:28-30 Luke 12:10
Mark 3:28-30 – 28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies where with soever they shall blaspheme: 29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: 30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
Luke 12:10 – 10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.
If Yeshua and YHVH (God) are one in the same, why is speaking against Yeshua (Son of man) something for which one can be forgiven but speaking against the Holy Spirit (God, since “God is a Spirit” – John 4:24) never forgivable?
Just so you don’t miss it: The passages quoted above directly state that blasphemy (scorning) the “son of man” (Yeshua the Messiah) is forgivable, but blasphemy (scorning) of the Holy Ghost is not forgivable.
This is yet another case of a clear distinction shown between the “son of man” (Yeshua) and God. Thus, the weakness of the “God in the flesh” Messiah argument once again is exposed.
Christian and counterfeit Messianic leaders teach that Yeshua the Messiah (son of man) is God. Therefore, I guess that Christian and counterfeit Messianic leaders would have us believe that if we blaspheme the son of man-God it is forgivable, but if we blaspheme God it is not forgivable. So they would supposedly have us read the passages quoted above and deduce that blasphemy is an unforgivable forgivable sin. ??
You read the sentence correctly, and the apparent mistake in the sentence is actually one of numerous illustrations that highlights the problems within the standard Christian human-God Messiah position. Remember, Christian and counterfeit Messianic leaders say Yeshua IS God; therefore, the contradiction in the sentence you just read IS what they are attempting to have you accept. The sentence is as senseless as any doctrine that promotes Yeshua is God. Like all such doctrines, the sentence defies common sense.
What child would understand a parent saying, “If you talk back to me you are not going to get a spanking, but if you talk back to me you are going to get a spanking.” I think such odd parental instruction, if it became the norm, could result in a somewhat confused child. Similarly, most Christians have become somewhat confused children from listening to their Christian theological parents’ twisted attempts to prove the doctrine that Messiah is God. The result is a “child” (Christians and/or counterfeit Messianics) that has lost the ability to discern and understand simple, direct, common sense verses of Scripture.
Christian leaders may try to explain away this glaring contradiction in their argument by somehow trying to show how the different aspects of the Son and the Father’s divine nature allows this.
Well, would they please show me how we can blaspheme any aspect of God? Do they have Scripture that permits us to blaspheme God at all? Absurd. The God in the flesh Messiah argument, when placed along side Scripture, is shown to be absurd.
Harsh as it may sound, time after time the “God incarnate” Messiah teaching is shown to be an effort at futility and an unsurpassed example of a lack of basic common sense. However, the most remarkable aspect of it is that so many people accept it, despite the fact they have a Bible, which if they truly read, proves the “God incarnate” teaching to be utterly false.
