How could Jesus be GOD even though he used to defecate in his clothes when he was an infant?  How could Jesus be GOD even though he used to urinate in his clothes when he was an infant?  How could Jesus be GOD even though he could NOT even walk properly when he was a 2 year old boy?  How culd Jesus be GOD even though Mary used to clean Jesus’s ass when he used to defecate and urinate in his clothes when he was a boy?  How could Jesus be GOD even though he came out of a mother’s womb?   How dare you ascribe such rubbish to God?


I do not ascribe these things to God. The Bible does. The most wonderful event in human history is the incarnation. God, the creator of the universe humbled himself, taking on human form as Jesus Christ. This is a deep and wonderful truth. God came for a while and lived among man. Like it says in John chapter1. “We have seen his glory: the glory of the One and only Son of God, full of grace and truth.” As John says, “The Word became flesh and dwelled for a while among us.” This is the most glorious miracle and sign of God’s love for mankind. The way Paul put it concerning Jesus of Nazareth, “Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be clung to, but instead made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death–even death on a cross.” Truly this is the deepest and most wonderful truth.

You are right that the Son of God–Jesus Christ was fully human. He ate food, he slept, he got sick and, yes, he even “went to the bathroom.” Perhaps to you this is a shameful thing, but I do not agree with you about that. It is a beautiful thing that God became man so that we could come to God. This is not rubbish. It is glorious. Jesus certainly was not ashamed to eat and sleep. I assume that you are not ashamed to sleep and to urinate. These are not shameful things. It is to the glory of Jesus that he was willing to take on these physical things so that we could know God. What you find shameful we Christians find to be glorious. It is through his death on a cross that we come to God–that we find forgiveness. Like it says in Hebrews 4:15, “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with us in our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are, yet was without sin.” Again, I say this is a beautiful thing and is certainly not a shameful thing.
