This doctrine of Jesus presuming to be God is not based on human reasoning ,understanding or internal logic, but a biblically divine revealation thru sriptural evidence ,spoken by God himself , Jesus and many of the apostles, just like the entirity of the scriptures, meant to be interpreted by divine revealation only, thru is Holy Spirit. Not thru reasoning , intellect or man's wisdom
Read Hebrews 1,John 1:1 maybe, just maybe He is God ,like God has said and he gave up His heavenly position , attributes and power in heaven to beome like man as a servant , humbled himself unto death for the sins of man.
You and I will never understand this in this Life, but the difference is I believed and then I recieved now, I know the truth, absolute truth
Society continues to overlook the fact that Jesus and the whole christian doctrine,eg: the cross ,sin, heaven ,hell ,punishment etc, is not based upon mankind's understanding or interpretaion with those who refuse to believe.
You have to have child like faith to believe and recieve understanding of the spiritual side of God. He is Spirit. Mere man cannot approach His presence unless you are in the spirit, Born again, renewed, regenerated, saved, forgiven, redeemed, etc
This subject is only open for debate with skeptics and those with an atheistic viewpoint and will never reveal closure of any sort in regard to understanding this subject until they step over in the realm of faith, or stand before God on Judgement,
I know, I was there and simple faith put me in relationship with God.I now see differently the things I was once refuting. But that is my story
I am secure in Christ because of the assurance I have thru His spirit that I am saved and forgiven having inherited heaven and eternal life
That is why you will never hear me debating beyond voicing an initial revalatory viewpoint, I don't need to convince you of where I stand with God because of what I believe, I have all assurance in my spirit and heart, not my will or intellect
Jesus Himself continually said To you (His followers) it has been given to know the mysteriesof the Kigdom of God ,but to those who are outside all things come in parables, so that seeing they may see and not percieve hearing they may hear and not understand,lest they should turn and their sins be forgiven Mark 4: 11
2Cor4:3 says the gospel message is veiled to those who are perishing,whose minds the god of this age has blinded who do not believe lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ who is the image of God would shine on them.
Plese read 1 Cor 1: 18- 28 what God says about the wisdom of the World, Do not take it personally.
I will say it again , those who try to use reasoning ,wisdom and logic to refute ,argue, debate, philosophize, intellectulaize, and rationalize God Heaven Hell,Jesus Christ, Morality, Eternal Judgementfor Sin will continue circularly for your entire existence
