The Apostle Barnabas is God according to Trinitarian theology

Share

 

Trinitarians sometimes claim the following verses prove that Jesus is God:

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

Matthew 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.

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

-Jesus is Good

-Only God is Good

-Therefore Jesus is God

So using that logic, let’s apply it to another figure in the New Testament.

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, 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.

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 here’s what we have:

-Barnabas is Good

-Only God is Good

-Therefore Barnabas is God!

We’re just using the analogy of the Trinitarian, by Trinitarian logic, Barnabas is God.
