Acts 2:22 Proves Christ Isn’t God

Acts 2:22 Men of Israel, listen to these words: Yeshua the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through him in your midst, just as you yourselves know

2:23 this {Man,} delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put {him} to death.

If Acts 2:22 says the Messiah (Christ) is a man, then none of the bible verses that people use to say Christ is God, can truly be saying, Christ is God.

The bible does not contradict itself, the reason why Christ said, he who sees me, sees Him [God] who sent me, is because God was in Christ by the Holy Spirit that dwelled in Christ.

John 1:1 is a popular verse that many people use to say, “Christ is God”, but upon further study, John 1:1 is not saying Christ is God, John 1:1 is saying God was in Christ, 2 Corinthians confirms that truth.

The statement, “God was the Word”, in John 1:1 is saying, “God was in Christ”, the statement “God was the Word” is not saying, “God was Christ”, if John 1:1 is saying “God was Christ”, then 2 Cor. 5:19 would say, “God was Christ”, 2 Corinthians 5:19 proves the truth that John 1:1 does not say, “Christ is God”.

2 Corinthians 5:19 God was in Christ reconciling the [chosen] world unto Himself.

The English bible has been changed by man, there are many verses in the bible that have been mistranslated to make it seem like the verse is saying Christ is God, but if one verse says, “Christ is a man” (Acts 2:22) and another verse says, “God was in Christ” (2 Cor. 5:19),  and another verse says, “God is a Spirit” (John 4:24), then none of the verses in the bible that people use to say Christ is God, are truly saying Christ is God.

A man who is flesh and blood is not a spirit and a spirit is not a man (flesh and blood), but a Spirit can dwell in a man and make the man obey God, that man was the first-born of the Spirit man, Yeshua the Messiah, God was in the Messiah reconciling the [chosen] world unto Himself (2 Cor. 5:19).

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man the Messiah Yeshua.

The Bible doesn’t agree with the teaching that says, “a person has to believe Christ is God, to be Christian.” No one has to believe Christ is God to be Christian.

The Biblical definition of a Christian is, someone who believes Yeshua is the Messiah that doesn’t practice sin, only those who believe God’s Son, Yeshua is the Messiah (the Christ), that stop practicing sin are born of God (Christian).

Jn 20:31 These have been written that you may believe Yeshua is the Christ (the Messiah], the Son of God, and by believing you may have life in his name.

The statement “in his name” in Jn 20:31 is referring to believing Yeshua is the Messiah, it is not referring to believing in the name “Yeshua”.

1 Jn 5:1 Whoever believes that Yeshua is the Messiah is born of God [born of the Spirit].

1 Jn 3:9 No one born of God practices sin, because His seed [the Holy Spirit] abides in him or her; and he or she cannot sin, because he or she is born of God [born of the Spirit].

1 Jn 5:18 We know [absolutely] that anyone born of God [born of the Spirit] does not [deliberately and knowingly] practice committing sin, but the One Who was begotten of God carefully watches over {and} protects him [Christ’s divine presence (the Holy Spirit) within him who is born of the Spirit preserves him against the evil], and the wicked one [the spirit of the natural man] does not lay hold (get a grip) on him {or} touch [him].

In the world today there are many people who claim to be Christian that say it is ok for there to be different denominations in the church, that it is ok for a Christian to believe something different from what another Christian believes, but the Bible does not support different denominations in the church, 1 Corinthians 1:10 says that the church is supposed to believe the same thing.

1 Cor. 1:10  But I urge {and} entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that all of you be in perfect harmony {and} full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions {or} factions {or} divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions {and} judgments.

A verse that many people use to say Christ is God is Titus 2:13, but the English Bible changed the original meaning of Titus 2:13, in Greek, Titus 2:13 does not say Christ is God, here’s a link to my post entitled “The English Bible Isn’t The True Word Of God”, that will explain more.
