athe·ist noun \ˈā-thē-ist\

: a person who believes that God does not exist

 

 

ag·nos·tic

noun \ag-ˈnäs-tik, əg-\

: a person who does not have a definite belief about whether God exists or not

 

 

Where do these people fit ?

 

1. A person who believes in a god but not Yahweh. 

 

2. A person who believes in Yahweh but not that Jesus is God.

 

 

What will be the category ?

1. They're believing in a false God

2. Who is this Yahweh if it's not Jesus........ false god.

 

Anybody can just put a name to their God, but if Jesus isn't in your description of (God) then I'd be worried.

My personal opinion would be neither. 

 

 

Matthew 12

30 He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.

1. Could be anything, really. Theist, polytheist, deist, pantheist, any description of God that is outside the Abrahamic faiths. 

 

2. A Jew or Muslim? Also, several sects of early Christianity saw Jesus as a great man of God, a prophet, but not God himself. Some modern ideas in various orthodox traditions also do not equate God and Jesus as well. So oddly, you could say a fringe sect of Christianity too. 

 

Neither case comes close to agnosticism or atheism.

the problem I see is that there are only two categories.  I'm not sure everyone besides true believers would fit into just those two categories.   Those two words are referring to god, not necessarily God.   So even a Moloch worshiping Bohemian Grove Participant would not be an atheist for he/she does believe in god.

 

So I would have to think my answers to both would be "other"......
