Isn't it blasphemous to say Jesus and God are the same person?
It doesn't even make sense. God impregnated his mother to give birth to himself to save us from sin all because of a talking snake? Seriously?

YES, it is very obviously blasphemy.

Yes it is blasphemous. Jesus is not God he is the son of God. He never claimed to be God. That is a preconceived belief of Trinitarians

It is, indeed, blasphemous to say Jesus and God are the same person, for that is contrary to what the Bible states. The only professed Christians speaking such deception are those who (a) misunderstand the Trinity doctrine (which maintains that the Father is not the Son, nor is the Son the Father, but that they are distinct in their persons) or (b) promote the 'oneness doctrine' (that the Father became the Son who then became the Holy Spirit) or (c) those who say the Father created the Son at a certain point in time, thus rendering the Son as a creature who is lower than the Father in rank and authority.
No Christian can believe that the Father and the Son are the same person. Atheists have jumped on the unchristian distortions to imply that all Christians believe this blasphemy, when they do not. The Bible is clear, for when Jesus said "I and the Father are one" (John 10:30), the Jews who immediately tried to kill Him for blasphemy did not misunderstand. The verb ('are') is 1st person plural. Two persons are involved. You see, Jesus was not claiming to be the one person who is the Father - He was claiming equal DEITY with the Father - "because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God." vs 33
Had He used the word εις (the masculine) He would have been claiming that Father and Son were one masculine person. Which is exactly what some believe: that God is a single person and performs both the 'office' (not relationship) of 'father' and also the 'office' (again, not relationship) of 'son'. But the neuter indicates that nature is in view, not person. One Deity, but not one masculine person. Therefore, Father and Son are in an eternal relationship, within Deity.
The Jews did not misunderstand Jesus' grammar. In a second they knew that, for a creature to claim the same Deity of the Father, would be blasphemy, and they instantly sought to murder Jesus. Had Jesus been created by the Father, it would have been blasphemy, but it was not, because the Son was never created, being eternally one with the Father and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead - John 1:1-14.

No, just ignorant. God is composed of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- 3 Persons in ONE God.
Okay, this is stupid: "God impregnated his mother to give birth to himself"
@ 007 -- You didn't understand the first time? God = God the Father, God the Son/Jesus, and God the Holy Spirit -- three Persons in one God.

Doesn't make much sense, does it? Until you accept the reality that God consists of three separate divine Persons - the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit.
