Seen in the light of atheism, (in which he is not the son of any gods), Jesus was a great man who brought the simple concepts of peace, love, pacifism and humanism to his part of the world, and it caught on big time. Sure, he was a bit deluded, or a bit deceptive, but basically a good guy with some great ideas.
So, someone who claims to be God, and knows he is not God
( a colossal liar) is a great man, or maybe just 'a bit' deceptive, eh?
Or, someone who claims to be God, and doesn't know he is not God
( a raving lunatic) is a 'great man' , or maybe just 'a bit' deluded, eh?
Seen in the light of him being the perfect son of a perfect god, it just makes no sense whatsoever. How can there be contradictions?.
How can the god be both perfect and clearly insane? .
He's not both. He's perfect but not insane. Claiming to be God when you are God is not a sign of insanity.
Why did he not do a great deal more good than he did? .
Did He ever do evil?
He changed the entire course of history for the good, but I suppose that's not good enough for you.
How could he have made any mistakes? .
How could he think his Dad had forsaken him? .
He didn't think that.
How can Jesus be human, and also perfect?.
Since He is perfect, why would appearing in a human body make Him imperfect?
How can he be worshipped alongside a jealous god? .
He is God. There is no 'alongside' to it. There is only one.
oh, and don't forget his mum!.... .
No idea what you're saying. Care to elaborate, or should we be able to read your mind?
How could anything Mary does, or I do, or his brother does, or you do, make Him less than what He is?
No sense at all. Nonsense.
So, since YOU cannot fully understand Him, therefore He must not be God, eh?
Let me ask you, if you DID fully understand God, do you think that would be much of a God?
Wouldn't we expect God to be beyond our capacity to fully understand?
