Must We Believe that Jesus Is God?

A while back (a long while back) a site reader asked Tim about the importance of believing in the deity of Jesus. As usual, Tim didn’t mince words in his response.

That doesn’t sound very pleasant to me.

    Hello Pilgrim

    Or perhaps he told them, “If you do not believe that I am he [the Messiah], you will die in your sins”. Only about 20 verses later, he said to the same group, “I am a man who has told you what I heard from God”. Do you really think God would say that? What would the hearers of that believe?
