God has a God?
By Sami Zaatari
Christians have made the claim that Jesus has 2 natures. One man nature, which he took on, and one divine nature which he always had. They claim as a man, he ate, slept and died etc.
They also claim as a man it would be normal for Jesus to say I have a God. Such as in:
John 20: 15-18:
15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. 16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. 17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. 18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the LORD, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
Christians have come up with the weak response that this was the man nature of Jesus speaking. For argument sake we will take this response as correct. So we are able to conclude that:
1- Jesus has 2 natures, one divine one human
2- The man nature eats, sleeps, prays and has a God
3- The divine nature does not sleep, pray, and doesnt have a God
However so, it may come as a surprise to many people, but the supposed divine Jesus also said he has a God!
12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
So as you can see, the divine Jesus still says he has a God! This is not Jesus as man speaking anymore, but this is Jesus as divine speaking, so how can the divine Jesus say I have a God? This clearly proves that there is no such thing as a divine Jesus, and that Jesus is not God since he has a God, even when he is in his supposed divine state.
Now the reason I call Jesus the divine Jesus in Revelations is because Christians say that after Jesus rose from the dead and went to heaven he returned to his divine all powerful state, so therefore when Jesus is talking in revelations this is the supposed all powerful divine Jesus not the human nature Jesus that we saw in the first 4 Gospels of Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John.
It must be said though that any logical sane person who reads john 20:15-18 will conclude that Jesus is not God, he is saying that he has a God! Put your shoes in the person Jesus was talking to, if a man came up to you saying he has a God would you actually think this person is God? Offcourse not. I want our Christian readers to honestly think about it without being biased but just think of it a man comes to you saying he has a God, would you really believe this man is God?
