A guy I was talking to brought this quote up in order to discourage Jesus’ divinity. How exactly is this explained? Jesus denies being God by virtue of the fact that he does not want to be called good. I know there must be something obvious that I’m missing, but I can’t figure it out for the life of me :o.
Just a side note, the guy I was talking to believes that Jesus is Michael the Archangel in human form. Aside from a number of off-the-wall beliefs he had, I found this the most skewed.
It’s examples like these that only serve to further enforce the fact (in my mind) that men should not try to decide their beliefs on personal interpretation.
