The Great Differences of Christ and Man

How is Christ different from humans

Paul did not receive his apostleship from man, but from Christ. So, He (Christ) is not man.

Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)

The gospel Paul preached did not come from man, but by the revelation of Christ. Christ is not man.

GALATIANS 1:10-12 
10 For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 
11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 
12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Worship of anybody who is not God is idolatry.

Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.

It is God the Father who commanded that Christ be worshiped.

HEBREWS 1:5-6 
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 
6 And again, when he bringeth in the first begotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

1 PETER 3:15 (NLT) 
Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if you are asked about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it.

All men have sinned. Christ did not.

ROMANS 3:23 
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

1 KINGS 8:46 
If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near;

There is not a just man on earth that sins not.

For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

Christ did not sin.

JOHN 8:46 (RSV) 
Which of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me?

1 PETER 2:22 
Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

No man has seen God.

JOHN 1:18 
No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

But Christ has seen Him.

JOHN 8:38 
I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

Man came from the dust of the ground.

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Christ came from above — from God.

JOHN 6:38 
For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

JOHN 13:3 
Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

Christ can see the heart and the mind; man can not.

MATTHEW 23:27 
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees,hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

JEREMIAH 17:9-10 
9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

Christ directly talks to the Father; man can not.

JOHN 17:5 
And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

JOHN 12:28 
Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the LORD.

Christ has life in Him; He can give and take it away.

JOHN 10:17-18 
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

Man has not power over death. Christ has.

There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.

JOHN 11:25 
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

Christ came from eternity.

MICAH 5:2 
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

God bless!


  1. Thanks to God for this article. More power, Mr. Controversy.

  2. Christ is indeed different from man. "Christ came from above - from God". Amen.

  3. The Lord Jesus Christ is a God! Thanks be to God for this wonderful blog

  4. Well explained. Certainly christ is not a man but the begotten son of the Almighty God! Amen.

  5. Amen. Thanks be to GOD for this article.

  6. Our Lord Jesus Christ is God and not man because He is the only begotten Son of God, the Father. Any one who does not believe that Jesus Christ is God is anti-Christ. Thanks be to God!

  7. I really admire how Mr. Controversy presents his propositions. It is always clear, candid, logical and Biblical.

  8. Really there are vast differences between Christ and man. Therefore it is not just to claim that Christ is man, as others would put it. Thank God for the detailed explanation, as alwaysa, by Bro. Eli. To God be thea glory!!!

  9. si Kristo ay
    hindi nagsinungaling
    at hindi nagkasala.
    1Peter 2:22

  10. si Kristo ay nagbibigay at kumukuha ng kaniyang buhay.
    John 10:17-18

  11. A million thanks to God! A timely message at times when people think that our Lord Jesus is a mere man...may this blog enlighten their hearts. Salamat sa Dios sa liwanag na pinapadaloy NIYA mula sa iyo Bro.Eli...May HE keep all brethren in his loving care.

  12. A clear evidence that Christ is not a man, but God who came from heaven and manifestested into flesh to teach as to live as a Christian.thanks be to God.

  13. Thanks be to God Mr. Controversy for this blog to remind us Humans how powerful God is compare to Man, because sometimes Man forgets / exceeds his limits when he is experiencing power on earth.

  14. Ang Anak Ng Tao Ay Tao...Ang Anak Ng Dios? Tao BA?

  15. The problem with people living together starts when a member or some members of the people living together begins to act or to think he/they is/are Christ...hehehe

  16. The devil can access man easily for his advantage because of man's thinking or acting as if they are Christ to confuse humanity.

  17. Knowing the differences of Christ and of man is a good lesson for me to respect the hierarchy of God and of man in my religion, the MCGI.

  18. also,Solomon was promised by God to be the wealthiest and most powerful person in the whole humanity, but he is not more powerful than Christ so Christ is not a man.

  19. Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways saith the Lord. Such is one big difference between Christ and man.

  20. ang ganda naman ng blog na ito, madami akong natutunan,,
    mga walang muwang lang sa Biblia ang naniniwalang tao si Cristo

  21. The difference between God and of man matters for my guidance to a good and biblical direction in my life but what matters most to me is I came from dust and will be returned to dust inevitably...

  22. This blog clearly implies that if a person would simply read the Bible and understand it, they would easily know that Christ is a true God and not a human being, unlike what other false religions are teaching.
