SINCE ALMIGHTY GOD AND JESUS CHRIST ARE BOTH CALLED “SAVIOR”, DOES THAT MEAN JESUS IS ALMIGHTY GOD?

SINCE ALMIGHTY GOD AND JESUS CHRIST ARE BOTH CALLED “SAVIOR”, DOES THAT MEAN JESUS IS ALMIGHTY GOD?

Trinitarians often use the following scripture to “prove” that Jesus is Almighty God:

“I, I am Yahweh, and there is no other Saviour but me” (Isaiah 43:11 NJB)

Trinitarians will then point out that Jesus Christ is referred to as “the Savior”  many times in the New Testament. However, this assertion is easily debunked by the Scriptures themselves. One very good example of this scriptural proof is:

“Through the preaching entrusted to me by the command of God our Savior, To Titus, my true son in our common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior” (Titus 1:3,4 NIV)

These verses show us very clearly that both Almighty God the Father and Jesus Christ are Saviors. However, while they are both Saviors, they are not equals as Saviors. This relationship is made clear by:

“God has brought to Israel the Savior Jesus” (Acts 13:23 NIV)

“To the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority” (Jude 25 NASB)

Almighty God is thus shown to be the ultimate Savior, but his saving power flows through the Savior Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Trinitarians also either ignore, or are ignorant of, the fact that some men are also called saviors in the Old Testament, using the same Hebrew Mohshia that is used of Yahweh at Isaiah 43:11:

“When the Israelites cried out to the LORD, he raised up for them a savior, Othniel, son of Caleb’s younger brother Kenaz, who rescued them” (Judges 3:9 NAB)

“When the Israelites cried out to the Lord, he raised up for them a savior, the Benjamin Ehud” (Judges 3:15 NAB)

“Saviors shall ascent Mount Zion to rule the nation of Esau, and the kingship shall be the LORD’s” (Obadiah 21 NAB)

If we use the same Trinitarian reasoning, then these men who are called saviors must also be Almighty God. Of course, that is as preposterous, as is the Trinitarian assertion that Jesus is Almighty God because he’s called savior.

Returning to the scripture at Isaiah 43:11, about Yahweh being Israel’s only Savior, the context in Isaiah 41-46shows that Yahweh alone provided salvation for Israel,  because “there is no other god” (Isaiah 45:14 NIV).
