“I and my Father are one”

“I and my Father are one” John 10:30 Unity of Being, not just Purpose The verb ‘are’ is the first person plural of the root verb ‘to be’ – it’s all about being. If Jesus had only meant that he was unified with the Father in purpose, he should have added the word ‘at’ –…

يَـٰٓأَهْلَ ٱلْكِتَـٰبِ لَا تَغْلُوا۟ فِى دِينِكُمْ وَلَا تَقُولُوا۟ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ إِلَّا ٱلْحَقَّ ۚ إِنَّمَا ٱلْمَسِيحُ عِيسَى ٱبْنُ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولُ ٱللَّهِ وَكَلِمَتُهُۥٓ أَلْقَىٰهَآ إِلَىٰ مَرْيَمَ وَرُوحٌ مِّنْهُ ۖ فَـَٔامِنُوا۟ بِٱللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِۦ ۖ وَلَا تَقُولُوا۟ ثَلَـٰثَةٌ ۚ ٱنتَهُوا۟ خَيْرًا لَّكُمْ ۚ إِنَّمَا ٱللَّهُ إِلَـٰهٌ وَٰحِدٌ ۖ سُبْحَـٰنَهُۥٓ أَن يَكُونَ لَهُۥ وَلَدٌ ۘ لَّهُۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَمَا…

Do Christians follow a ‘fake Jesus’?

A Muslim friend of mine (MCT) sent me the following syllogism: Premise 1 – Jesus said in John 16:10 , he is going to the father and he will not be seen again.Premise 2 – Jesus warned us that after his ascension many will appear in his name for misleading and deceiving as shown in…
