Catholics, Christians, Why is Jesus not considered a false idol?

Please give more than just "because he's the son of god".

  • Because he is part of the holy trinity: Father, son, and holy spirit. They are all one entity, but with 3 parts.

  • Most false gods never had human form...
    Jesus came as a man and sacrificed Himself for ALL mankind.
    The bible says not to have any other gods before the God of Heaven and Earth.
    He is a jealous God and that word jealous is used differently than what we know the word to be today.

  • Because God became one of us. He chose to take on human form. And YES, because he is the Son of God....That is the reason why, even if you don't want that to be the answer that is given.

  • Jesus was fully man and fully God. He was not just the son of God, He was God in the flesh. We worship Him becuse of the reason I just stated and because He is our teacher. He gave us very basic instructions how to live and how to get into the Kingdom Of Heaven....Through Him.

  • he is fully given power from his father, which is given and earned. Jesus is the word which became flesh and dwelt among us. In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and was a god. He was a form from heaven that became flesh from a virgin conception by the Holy Spirit, not just the word. It wasn't a true birth like in earth that was a man, woman and child, this was God's power delivered by the Holy Spirit. Jesus is what we need by the mediation to get to God. He is what we needed all the time. He isn't created or made from man first, he was the second Adam, or the next in line of David, so he was a line of blood, meaning the rulership kindred line for convenants to be made from. God has said my son has done well. God says my son Jesus has fulfilled the desires of the father, so they aren't 3 of the same EXACT thing, but close enough to be called God's ONLY BEGOTTEN from the Holy Spirit. If he wasn't ca

  • If he wasn't send down to become the begotten son to the father, we'd have no forgiveness, and be lost in sins. But since he allowed his own begotten son to die for our sins, as a mediation, and way to the father, He in total love become the ''way, the truth, and the life":
    He is the life form of human divine ''sent'' energy which is transformed into God's own positional power. We don't need to be in fear of the enemy when we are praying in the name of Jesus ,...then amen. We pray in his name because it is the rightful line of blood passage to go through the covenants and lineages of earthly descendants. From the order of Melchizideck, (spell?)... It's enough to say he lived with us and as the son of the father God, but he still had to pray to God the father as he was in the garden waiting for the officials to come to take him to the night of crucifixtion. He still prayed to his father in heaven, to take this cup of suff

  • to take this cup of suffering away from him, he was in the form of man to take our sins, and bear our burdens, so he wasn't able to be anything else. He knew it for the reasons he was so faithful to his father, he knew it for the dedication to our eternity, and he knew that someone would ask this question today on cafe'mom : )

  • It's not Jesus that should be considered a false idol, but the cross. They say it's symbolic...but then so is every other idol that people worship in whatever religion.

  • A statue of Jesus? I do not have any but then again, I am not your normal christian. :)

  • The OT is the plan that brings Christ to earth. It is the promise and the prophecy of His coming and His promise. His coming and sacrifice were planned from before the beginning. Genesis 1:26 says "Then God said, 'Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness,...'" He's not affecting the royal 'we' there. He's talking to Jesus. John 1:1-3 says "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made." Again, Jesus has been with God since Creation. He can't be a false idol since He was 'in on the plan', if you will. Humans didn't create him; quite the opposite, actually. And He has the ability to fully understand our temptations because He, too, was tempted because He was human. Being God, He never succumbed, but He does know our struggle. How beautiful is that?
