Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
A very strong statement made in the Old Testament where the people are being warned do not trust in the son of man, and we know from the very same bible I.e New Testament that Jesus was also a son of man by his own admission. You may wonder how does this statement change how Jesus of the bible is?. All shall be revealed by quoting a couple to verses from the New Testament where we shall prove that Jesus the son of man of the bible cannot be trusted just as stated in psalms.
The Jews answered him, "Aren't we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?" "I am not possessed by a demon," said Jesus, "but I honor my Father and you dishonor me. (John 8:48-49)
Notice from the above passage the Jews encountered Jesus saying he is a Samaritan and demon possessed?. Now the response that Jesus gives to them is he is not demon possessed, Yet he didn't refute the fact he is not a Samaritan? Was he a Samaritan or Jew? Secondly this very same Jesus said if he testifies about himself then his testimony is not true!
"If I testify about myself, my testimony is not true.
Wait a tick according to John 8:49 Jesus testified he wasn't demon possessed, yet Jesus himself said anything he testifies about himself is not true. Which means he was demon possessed!
Let's gets this straight
* The Jews encounter Jesus.
* They called him a Samaritan and that he was demon possessed!.
* Jesus did not refute he was a Samaritan instead was silent about their a
* Jesus only responded that he was not demon possessed!.
* Jesus testifies his testimony about himself is not true!.
From the above we can conclude that Jesus of the bible may have been a Samaritan since his didn't refute the Jews regarding his race, but he did refute he wasn't demon possessed Which means he was possessed since he declared his testimony about himself is not true. This brings us back to psalm 143:6 do not trust the son of man.
A dilemma for Christians
