Sabbath Word(July 18/20) CNN’s Don Lemon Was Right – Jesus Was Not Perfect! Here’s The Proof

Sabbath Day (Gen2: 1-3 & Ex.20: 8 – 11    By r. a.            Saturday, July 18, 2020

In Messiah’s name: For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. (burdensome, hard, oppressive). (1Jn 5: 3)

On July 5/20, or so, according to the Christian Post, during an episode of “CNN Tonight”, Don Lemon (pic on left) discussed with fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo (pic on right) how Americans learned about their history. During the discussion, Lemon stated the following: “Jesus Christ, if that’s who you believe in, Jesus Christ admittedly was not perfect when he was here on this earth”.

In response to Lemon’s claim, several Christian ministers were outraged and struck back and retaliated. For instance, Baptist Minister Mike Huckabee stated that Don Lemon’s “arrogant comment was dumb and blasphemous”.

Question: Was Jesus “not perfect” and is it “blasphemous” to make such comments?

Let’s see if Don Lemon was right in his claim. Here’s Don’s comment again: “Jesus Christ admittedly was not perfect when he was here on this earth”.

Firstly, one must define the meaning of two words — Admittedly and Perfect –within Don’s statement.

Admittedly is an adverb. It means to admit, confess, acknowledge beyond question that something is true.

Perfect is an adjective. According to online dictionaries, the term “perfect” can be defined as “faultless”, “flawless”, “absolute”, “complete”, “good” and several other synonyms.

Once again, here’s Lemon’s comment: “Jesus Christ admittedly was not perfect when he was here on earth”.

Here’s the correct analysis of that statement according to the definitions of “admittedly” and “perfect”. Jesus Christ admitted, confessed, acknowledged that he was not perfect, flawless, absolute, complete, good.  continues below pic

Here’s the scriptural proof of Jesus’ admission/confession that he was not “perfect”.

Matt. 19: 16 – 17 “And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he (Messiah) 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.

Hebrews 5: 8 – 9 “Though he were a Son, yet he learned obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect (through his sacrifice/ crucifixion), he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.”

Don Lemon was right! Yahshua, the Messiah admitted he was not perfect or good.. Yet, he was made so “by the things he suffered” and his obedience to the will of his Father, as indicated in Heb. 5: 8 – 9 above.

There is none flawless, complete, absolute, perfect but the Creator-God, the great I AM and his son, Yahshua, the Messiah who sits on the right hand of his father and is one in agreement (Jn.10: 30) with him.

We will be made “perfect” when we choose to do and obey the Creator-God’s commandments, his holy days and judgements as Messiah did. Thus, we will have the mind of the Creator-God, the great I AM, and his son, Yahshua.

As Messiah stated: “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matt. 5: 48) One is made perfect by doing the Father’s will, by our obedience to his laws.

All glory, praise and honour to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name.

Peace, blessings and protection to all who seek and love the truth –God’s Word (Jn.17: 17 & 119: 142)

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
