The Bible Doesn’t Support The Teaching That Says A Person Has To Believe Christ Is God To Be Christian

1 Cor. 8:6 proves Christ isn’t God. “there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we {exist} for Him; and one Lord, Yeshua the Christ, by whom are all things, and we [those who are born of God] {exist} through him.”(1 Cor. 8:6)

Ephesians 4:5-6 One Lord [Yeshua the Messiah (the Christ)], one faith, one baptism [the Holy Spirit], one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all and in you all [in all who are born of the Spirit].

John 1:1 English translation of the Greek translation – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with [the] God, and God was the Word

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

The bible does not support the teaching that says, “you have to believe the Christ (the Messiah) is God to be Christian”.

The bible says a person must believe God’s Son, Yeshua is the Messiah and after the person believes God’s Son is the Messiah, the person must stop practicing sin, only those who no longer practice sin that believe God’s Son is the Messiah, are Christian, that’s what the bible says,

John 20:31 these have been written that you might believe that Yeshua is the Messiah, the Son of God and by believing you might have life in his name.

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

1 Jn 5:1 Whosoever believes 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 God 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].

The teaching that says, “you have to believe the Christ (the Messiah) is God to be Christian” is false.

Another verse that proves Christ is not God is Acts 2:22, here’s a link to my post entitled “Acts 2:22 Proves Christ Isn’t God”, that will explain more.
