If your name is Jesus, is it a sin to say "I'm the real Jesus"?

It's a fairly common Spanish name, after all.

    My brother is named Jésus(Jesus in French). He plays around sometime. We even called him Christ (this is not approved by the Catholic church). I am not that into religion, but I don't see why God would be angry about this.

    By the way, I am not Spanish, I'm Haitian.

    The word THE in your statement makes it a sin in my opinion. Cause you are claiming to be THE Jesus Lord. I don't take it like that if you were to say "I'm a real Jesus".

    No, it is just a name and the son of God had a normal name "Jesus". It makes no sense that it is a sin.

    NO it is not a sin, there was another man back in Jesus time that was also called Jesus, but he & any after them was NOT JESUS THE CHRIST( annointed one)

    I think the Bible is referring to a case where someone says, "I am the real Saviour, who will deliver you from death and give you eternal life." However, I would hope that someone would be mature enough not to make petty jokes like that.

    In the translation I read, Jesus said: I am he.

    Only if you're claiming to be Lord. Other than that, claiming to be yourself is okay.
