In mankind's history there can be found natural theology which is generally characterized as the attempt to establish religious truths by rational argument and without reliance upon alleged revelations. Newt to it we may find lots of name-Christians trying to proof God exist but for them Jesus being God, others can see that their idea of God being Eternal, Immaterial, Transcending space, The Creator and Designer of the universe, Omnipotent, Omniscient, The unique greatest possible Being, does not fit at all their Jesus-god. Many people putting 2 and 2 together decide then wrongly because those qualities not fitting Jesus, he is not being able to be God but then there than also not being a Supreme God.
There are people who want us to believe god had to purify Himself but that we ourself do not have to do any works any more or can do whatever we want because God brought salvation to us by His death, though God can not die. By such misleading teaching those 'preachers' are fooling not only themselves but are taking the opportunity away for others to find the Real God of gods and the entrance to the Kingdom of God.
