Full Question

When Jesus was on earth in human form, did he commit sins like other humans?


Jesus never sinned. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states,

Following the holy Fathers, we unanimously teach and confess one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ: the same perfect in divinity and perfect in humanity, the same truly God and truly man, composed of rational soul and body; consubstantial with the Father as to his divinity and consubstantial with us as to his humanity; "like us in all things but sin." (CCC 467)

So how did he, in his humanity, keep from sinning? He submitted his will completely to the will of his Father.

Christ possesses two wills and two natural operations, divine and human. They are not opposed to each other, but cooperate in such a way that the Word made flesh willed humanly in obedience to his Father all that he had decided divinely with the Father and the Holy Spirit for our salvation. Christ’s human will does not resist or oppose but rather submits to his divine and almighty will. (CCC 475)

  1. How about the 4th Last Word of Jesus, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
    Doesn’t Jesus committed sin by questioning his Father?

    1. No. he calling people to remember this Psalm. Most of the time, to draw attention to a certain psalm, people only said the first sentence of the psalm and you were expected to remember. If you wanna see the psalm in question, start at Psalm 22

    2. Yeshua [Jesus] at that moment, was taking on the sins of mankind [past, present, and future]…God the Father is Righteous and Holy; therefore, God separated Himself from Yeshua; thus, Yeshua felt forsaken, as all true believers do, when we don’t feel Gods presence.

  2. QUESTION….the catholic church teach us to forgive those who wrong us. to love our enemy. is there any forgiveness to the fallen angel. if God didn’t forgive the angel therefore we also choice the people we need to forgive. and to love is that possible….?

    1. The Angels will be judged at the end of the 1,000 year reign of Yeshua and the Church [the called out ones] on Earth. Angels know that there is a God; they have no excuse; but, as humans, we walk by faith.

  3. I don’t believe that. I believe Jesus was a medicine man and the writers exaggerated his story to promote their control over what the world does. I love God and believe in him and pray all the time but this whole trinity thing and story is just not adding up to what historical records actually say.
