is Barnabas God ?!

By Sami Zaatari

Barnabas is God! That is if you follow Trinitarian thinking.

 

You see folks since Trinitarians have no real solid proof to prove their false belief in the Trinity, and divinity of Jesus, they must therefore resort to the most weak and deceitful type of argumentation, and since their ‘evidence’ is so weak it usually backfires against them.

 

One part of the Bible that Christians bring up to prove Jesus’ divinity is that of Matthew chapter 19 verses 16 to 17 which reads as follows:

 

Mat 19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

 

Mat 19:17  And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

 

Now Christians claim these verses prove that Jesus is divine is because he supposedly calls himself good, and only God is good. The Christian argument is like this:

 

-Jesus is Good

-Only God is Good

-Therefore Jesus is God

 

Now only a Trinitarian will read these verses and believe that Jesus believed he was Good like God, but I am not here to argue this point, rather I will go along with the Christian and their thinking.

 

So with that said let us see how BADLY this type of reasoning backfires against the Trinitarian Christian.

 

For starters as we all know the Bible or the New Testament is not written in English, it is written in GREEK.  Now the Greek word for Good which is used in these passages is called ?Agathos’. So basically Christians claim that Jesus is Agathos, and only God is Agathos, therefore Jesus is God.

 

Now comes the big problem for the Christians, when we go to read the Book of Acts chapter 11 verse 24 we read this about Barnabas:

 

For he was a good (AGATHOS) man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord.

So in the Book of Acts the Apostle Barnabas is called good, not only is he called good, he is called AGATHOS, the exact identical word used to describe God’s goodness in Matthew chapter 19! So notice what we have folks:

 

-Barnabas is Good

-Only God is Good

-Therefore Barnabas is God!

 

The Christian will have no choice but to accept this conclusion, for if they don’t then they are simply being inconsistent and following double standards! Remember the CHRISTIANS say this:

 

-Jesus is Good

-Only God is Good

-Therefore Jesus is God

 

The Christians make this analogy, and as we can see the Apostle Barnabas falls under the very same argumentation used by Christians!

 

So will Christians be honest now and accept Barnabas as their God? Or will they be honest to admit their methodology is so flawed and weak that it causes more problems for them! Whichever one they chose, they will lose.

 

Hopefully Trinitarians will be able to wake up and realize how flawed their belief is, and hopefully that will make them see the truth and the light!

 

And Allah Knows Best!

  1. TroyG Says:

    I have never, and would never, say that the mere use of a word indicates something – it depends on the context the word is used in. Like the blind man in John 9 saying “I am” doesn’t mean he’s claiming deity. I don’t know any Christians who use this idea of “good” to say Jesus is God. I suppose many other things are said to be agathos in the Bible, though I’ve not done a word search. I guess we know different Christians!
