“I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.”

This isn’t some mysterious riddle or a cryptic message laden with hidden symbols. Rather, its a simple and direct statement that shows exactly where Jesus stood in relation to God and people.

Jesus says his Father is Father to the people as well, and also that his God is also the God of the people. I wish I could expand on this further, but this simple statement speaks volumes for itself.

When we have such resoundingly clear statements from Jesus, that he himself prayed to God, why do Christians insist that Jesus is actually the God he was talking about? Its like me telling a coworker “my boss is your boss” and he interprets that as “I am your boss”.

Now I know Christians will start pulling out verses to demonstrate how Jesus is actually God.
Please don’t waste your time… instead focus on the statement “my Father and your Father, to my God and your God” and explain how you interpret it as meaning Jesus is God.

Do you interpret those words as meaning Jesus said “I am your Father and I am your God” or “my Father and your Father, who is actually me…. my God and your God, who is actually me”?

I don’t believe that Jesus is God, not because I have something against Jesus… but only because of Jesus’ own statements that his God is my God too.

Discuss.
