In Christianity, Does Jesus' Soul Have Anything To Do With Why Jesus Is God?

In Christianity, Does Jesus' Soul Have Anything To Do With Why Jesus Is God?
I've been a Christian my entire life, Baptist at that, and have worshiped Jesus as long as I can remember. I recently watched a video that basically said that according to Protestantism, I've been a blasphemer the whole time. I think the video was created by an Atheist. In the video he claimed that "Protestantism declares that Jesus' soul has nothing to do with why Jesus is God, and that if you think his soul has to do with why he is God then according to Christianity you will burn in hell". Is that true?

Here's the video...

Why not go to a Protestant forum to find out what they think. Why do you think it was made by an atheist? Not to mention the bazillion different sects of Protestantism that might disagree on the matter..

I don't belief that to be true, the only truely unforgivable sin is blasphemy. As long as you believe in Jesus as your saviour you are not going to hell.

From watching the video I get the impression he isn't a Christian.

Jesus was no more or less 'god' than any of us.

Does God have a soul ??

What's the point ??


As for blasphemy, mistating fundamental truths about Christ would indicate one does not actually believe in the real Jesus. And worshipping a fictitious, made up Jesus strikes me as blasphemous.

Looks like many, many ersatz believers gonna be aburnin' in dat fiery lake !!

I don't think it's that unusual. Christianity is fragmented into thousands of denominations, some which are pretty similar and some which are quite different. I would not be surprised if there are at least a few hundred that teach that if you aren't doing things exactly the way they do, you are damned.
"Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts don't go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's in this century, but apples didn't suspend themselves in midair, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from ape- like ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered."

40,000 denominations of Christianity is the figure I have been using.

And 39,999 OR all 40,000 are going to burn in HELL !!!

Ahh, no.

We 'man' are a Tri nature being. One of body, soul (the nature or life essence of the body) and Spirit, the part of our being that can connect with God.

Jesus was a tri natured being (as the bible does identify a soul for Jesus in mT 28)
Jesus was a man, that had a life essence that had wants and desires for the body just like we do, and rather have a typical Spirit He was God.
