Jesus was the greatest person in history, He was the Christ, the hope of humanity, the door to eternal life, and the son of, spokesperson for, and the road leading to the Greatest Creator for all kind, diligent, simple, honest, and humble people. Regardless of how much we praise Jesus, it can never be too much, but we can not say that Jesus was or is the Greatest Creator.
A real Christian must venerate Jesus, listen to the teachings of Jesus, and strictly behave according to Jesus' teachings. To lower or raise the status of Jesus is inexcusable. It not only a blasphemes the Greatest Creator, but it is also a betrayal to Jesus. Furthermore, it would be the Antichrist and a sin to human beings.
Jesus belongs to all human beings, not to any specific nation or religion. Jesus's teachings are for everyone. Everyone who loves Jesus, believes in Jesus, and follows Jesus' teachings, is a Christian. This does not need any baptism or approval from any special anointed person or religious institution. Even the Hindu, Mahatma Gandhi said, "I love Jesus Christ." Many Buddhists also say they love Jesus. But here we shall know that Jesus is not the Greatest Creator.
Jesus never claimed himself to be the Greatest Creator. He taught us again and again that we shall walk on the way of the Greatest Creator.
Let us check the words of Jesus to verify whether or not Jesus was the Greatest Creator.
But He said, "I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent." ~Luke 4:43
Here, Jesus says that he was sent. If Jesus is the Greatest Creator, who will ask the Greatest Creator to do things?
“By myself, I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me”. ~ John 5:30
Here, Jesus clearly tells us that he came, not for his will, but for the will of the Greatest Creator.
“Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.” ~Matthew 12:32
Here, Jesus humbly tells us that if we speak a word against him, we can be forgiven. But if we speak words against the Greatest Creator, we can not be forgiven. These words clearly show that Jesus was not the Greatest Creator.
Then the mother of Zebedee's sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him. "What is it you want?" he asked. She said, "Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom". "You don't know what you are asking", Jesus said to them. "Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?" "We can", they answered. Jesus said to them, "You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father". ~Matthew 20:21-23
Here, Jesus directly tells us that his right was less than the Greatest Creator's. He had no right to grant people to sit at either of his sides. If Jesus were the Greatest Creator, would he not have this right to grant?
And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"--which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" ~ Mark 15:34
Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit". When he had said this, he breathed his last. ~Luke 23:46
From these words, how can we say that Jesus is the Greatest Creator?
I also want to ask, can Man condemn the Greatest Creator to death? Is Man more powerful than the Greatest Creator?
I still want to ask, Jesus had prayed many times, if Jesus were the Greatest Creator, to whom did he pray? Is there any being greater than the Greatest Creator?
The facts prove, time and again, that Jesus was not the Greatest Creator. So, why do some people still claim that Jesus is the Greatest Creator?
There is an evil purpose here, which is to raise the status of Jesus so high that it moves people farther away from the Greatest Creator. Since they said Jesus is the Greatest Creator, they shall listen to the teachings of Jesus. But no! They did not hear and follow any teachings of Jesus. They just wanted to get to their own scheme. What was the scheme? That is to praise Jesus so high with their lips that they betray Jesus and ask people to walk on the way of Satan.
"But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God". ~Matthew 16:15-16
Some Christians who praise Jesus with their lips have dishonored the real Christians. No wonder that Mahatma Gandhi said, “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ”.
Yes, Jesus said that, "I and the Father are one" (John 10:30), but this does not mean the Father is the son or that the son is the Father. It means that Jesus has been with the Greatest Creator throughout many ages, it means that Jesus is the honest son of the Greatest Creator. Jesus dutifully carried out the Greatest Creator's will and what he had done were all strictly following the Greatest Creator's will. From this, Jesus and the Greatest Creator are always one. Jesus keeps his oneness with the Greatest Creator from the beginning of time.
We often speak of the unity of humanity and heaven, but it does not mean humanity and heaven are the same.
