So you are saying that forgiving someone's sin proves a person is God? Jesus taught us to forgive others, I suppose that would make us Gods also.For once in your life I agree with you, Jesus did not teach He was God, instead He proved He was God. Here, I'll give you one example out of many. Luke 5: 20-24, "And seeing their faith, He/Jesus said, Friend, your sins are forgiven." Vs21, "And the Scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this man who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone."
This is not interpreted correctly, he spoke like that, as he knew that this person's sin were being forgiven by GOD, but, NOT BY HIM!! How's your English ? Why ? Because HE had not yet been killed and had not died yet risen from the dead as He knew He soon would be killed BY THE JEWS..
To the Jews, apparently yes, He did but, the Jews of that time were revolting against even God.. Where has Israel been since the time of Yeshua ???????????????
So tell us, why does the RCC proclaim and declare their " divive authority " then ? They had their detractors burnt alive so as to prevent them being exposed as fraudsters, remember ?
No one here has ever said that Yeshua is God nor has HE ever said that...
