  1. Because modern Christians are actually anti-Christians. The correct teaching of the Jewish prophet Jesus Christ was professed by Jews https://www.pravenc.ru/text/114990.html?fbclid=IwAR0qkpY_aCOLpnTora2_zR7cit8AKpuzQu-hW5N0y_OEPgiHkiy8EYEFn4U Rejected by the French, the books of John the Evangelist describe the Antichrist, a fictional literary character who never lived on earth “in the flesh” 1 John 4: 3 From John and idolatry begins. https://www.mifinarodov.com/a/antihrist.html

  2. The holy Scriptures say that God is a Spirit (John 4: 24). It is this Spirit that is the Spirit of Jesus, so Jesus is God.

    I won't answer the second question, because I don't pray to icons.

  3. There are many Christian denominations, so people are at a loss to guess. For example, in Orthodoxy there is the doctrine of the trinity, where Jesus and his father God are one person. But this is contrary to the Bible. It specifically says that there is the Only true God-the Creator of everything, his name is Jehovah and there is his son Jesus Christ, who is now fulfilling the task of his father to save humanity. And icons are generally forbidden by the law of God. In the well-known 10 commandments, the second commandment reads: “3 You shall have no other gods before me. 4 You shall not make for yourself any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth below, or that is in the water below the earth.
    5 You shall not worship them or serve them, for I am the LORD your God, a jealous God…”

  4. I believe that Christians see God as a unity of three hypostases. At least he reveals himself in the Scriptures through the Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This does not contradict the concept of monotheism.

  5. And God is one: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

    This is one person in different forms of Its manifestation.

    It is written that God created man in His own image and likeness, and looking at the structure of a person you can get an idea-what kind of God.

    The triune man is a spirit with a soul clothed in a body.

    But at the same time, we have the same personality.

    So is God, whose likeness we are.

    But with icons and “saints” you are in the wrong place, Christians do not say that.

    This is for you to the pagan Orthodox and Catholics.

    But you won't find anything like it in the Bible.

    Only the strictest prohibition on worshiping anyone other than God (the first commandment) and the same prohibition on creating anything and worshiping the work of their own hands (the second commandment).

    Written: “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.”

  6. This is due to ignorance. Read Psalm 22 of David and you will see that Christ (the Staff) is the Comforter in the Trinity of God. Above Him is the Heavenly Father (Scepter) and, of course, God Himself.

  7. just as the one God can consist of three separate,” undifferentiated ” personalities who can converse with each other, God did not create his own kind and he was not created

  8. There is a Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. All three Persons (Hypostases, Personalities) The Trinities exist in a complete unity that creates the world, provides for it, and sanctifies it. Jesus, one of them, was sent to Earth in the form of a man to take their sins upon himself.

  9. By the end of the third and beginning of the fourth centuries, the question of the union of the divine and human essence in the person of Jesus Christ became acute in the church. In 380-381, the Synod confirmed the thesis of the unity of God the father, God the son, and the Holy Spirit. Thus, one of the most important Christian dogmas states that God is one and at the same time triune. The dogma contains three parts. The first states that the one being of God contains three persons or hypostases-the father, the son, and the Holy Spirit. The second part treats of honoring these hypostases of God as equals. The father is god, the son is god, and the Holy Spirit is god, but they do not exist as three gods, but as one god. The third part asserts the belief that the three hypostases of God have different qualities: God the father is not born of anyone, God the son is born of God the father, and God the Holy Spirit also comes from God the father (in Catholic dogma, the holy spirit comes from the father and the son).�

    The question of icons can also be considered from various aspects, but I will focus on the most obvious – it is worth considering why people were canonized as saints. In Orthodoxy, there are more than ten categories of holiness. For example, the unmercenary Christians are famous for their selflessness and renunciation of wealth for the sake of their faith.Чуд Miracle workers – saints who are famous for the gift of miracle-working and intercession in response to prayers to them. Prayers to a particular saint are associated with the category of his face of holiness. So, in the Orthodox tradition, there is a belief that those who performed miracles of healing during life continue to heal even after death, etc.The prayer itself, of course, is not connected with the appeal to the face depicted on the icon, but with faith.

  10. Probably no one can answer these questions.Strange really is all.I would like to hear some logical answer, because no matter how much I asked this question to my friends and acquaintances, no one was able to answer.

  11. I think it's because it's easier for people to believe what they see. Jesus was among the people(like the people in the icons), so they attributed the status of God to him. Although he himself was and is the son of God. People are able and turn everything they can in their direction. It is not possible to convince those who are convinced, so I will not prove anything to anyone. Just my opinion. And to believe in the creator or in his creation is the decision of each person.

  12. Jesus is the prophet of Allah, Jesus he is not god he is the messenger of Allah when the world ends he will descend from the sky and recite salat with the Muslim of those times all will be Muslims and Jesus will be killed by dajjalah

  13. Jesus is the son of God, as he preached among the people in heaven, a loud voice was heard: “This is my beloved son, listen to him . God said do not worship the image of human hands , do not turn to magicians, fortune tellers, etc . But people are idolaters and they still came up with icons with names , this leads them away from God and teaches them to hope that some person from the icon will pray for them and everything will be fine, but there is no direct conversation with God , in the old Testament there are many prayers from God's favorites, King Solomon, etc.

    1. Jesus is the messenger of God. It is difficult to object to such an alternative. But it was at least temporary, a material being. Otherwise, the whole story in the Bible loses its plausibility.

    2. Since the question of the plausibility of the “immaculate conception” of divine power still “hung in the air”, 500 years later a new religion “Islam” emerged, which was based on the materialistic thesis: “There is no god but God and Mohammed is his prophet.
