instead of a 1st century Jew, he might have sounded something like this humerous little cartoon.  Jesus’ reply to the absurdity of Peter’s faux response here is exactly what anyone in their right mind would/should say.  “What???”

    Hilarious. Which disciple has the picture of the frosty tall one on his garb?

    Where’s the rule that says we have to confuse the Father with Jesus whenever we say that he is God?

    I wonder what Jesus would have said if one of his disciples would have said, “We know who you are. You are God, for having seen you, we now know what the Father is like. We’ve also come to understand that you were with the Father from the beginning, even before the world was, and that through you, God created everything. We are quite certain that you had communion with the Father before anything was made by you. We trust that the Father showed you what was to be done, and by that you did the word and will of God, by his own power which was at work within you, and by this we know that you are the Son of God.”

    It becomes confusing when you say Jesus is God “and” he is the son. If Jesus is God “and” the son, then that equals “God the Son”. I understand you don’t believe that Jesus is “God the Son” and that you mean it as a comparison, but this becomes confusing to other people whenever they hear you say that Jesus is God.

    It would be a lot less confusing if you would just say, Jesus is like God…

    Most people have no difficulty understanding that Jesus as seen by his disciples, was so much like God the Father, that Jesus told them that they that had seen him, had seen the Father also.

    Jesus didn’t tell them so, to confuse them.

    Neither do I confuse people when I say that Jesus is God in the sense that he is as the Father himself is.

    It’s not confusing. It’s making a comparison.

    Some self-righteous police officers would like to put some kind of rule on people in order that they could be controlled by them and their rules, and, or, by their own rule.

    But the children of God will not be so ruled, for where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

    When God saved for his name’s sake, who was the intercessor?
    Was it Jesus, God’s namesake?

    Can a man walk in wisdom and not connect with Jesus?

    How does Jesus compare with the breath of God? Isn’t the breath of God as God is? How about Jesus in that same regard?

    Isn’t Jesus, being connected with the Father, one Spirit? (I Cor 6:17)

    You said, “Some self-righteous police officers would like to put some kind of rule on people in order that they could be controlled by them and their rules, and, or, by their own rule.”

    I apologize if I came across as some kind of “self-righteous police officer”. That was not my intention. It’s just that you are the only person I have ever met that repeatedly says that “Jesus is God” but you really just mean to say that Jesus is comparable to God.

    I’m sorry if I offended you. Have a great weekend and God Bless…

    I think there’s a lot of people that say that Jesus is God and what they mean is that he is so much as God the Father is, that he is in every conceiveable way, God, knowing of course that there is a distinction between Jesus and the Father, and they don’t need to be reminded of it. They know it every bit as well as anyone else.
