We all know the reasons that Trinitarians give to justify their belief.
Can you answer the questions in the thread?
Did Jesus teach he was GOD himself?No, I don't believe Jesus did. I can only guess as to the reasons why he didn't, but strangely his disciples/apostles taught that Jesus was God after his resurrection. Maybe this is one of the truths that they were not able to bear while Jesus was alive. But after Jesus was resurrected, the apostles taught it and wrote about it.
John 16:12 “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth.
1 John 5:20
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
John is once again teaching that Jesus is God even the true God and eternal life.
