Rescuing China is God's next big project. As disciples of the Lord, Jesus Christ, each of us is the part of this great mission. Pray for China and let our Lord use us in any way to fulfill this mission. There are too many missing sheeps out there who need God's salvation for the eternal life!

Jesus knows every person whether you know him or not. Apparently you do not know Jesus. If you say that you know Jesus and yet you say that Jesus does not know you means that you do not know Jesus. I am glad you have mentioned this.

No person can ever say for certain that one knows Jesus. To really know Jesus one must 'search' for Jesus. You have just initiated a sense of knowing Jesus, but you will have a long way, like every one of us, to go on the search for Jesus - the search for the universal truth, the search for an understand of our Heavenly Father's love toward his wonderful creation, which include Mankind, which includes you and me. Jesus is God. Jesus is a person in the Holy Trinity which is God. And God is love. And God loves you. And God knows you.

Start reading the Bible. You will find truth and love. You will find the meaning of your life.

Searching for Jesus (or any religion's God) you will never find. It's like finding the exact location of an electron spinning around the nucleus looking under a powerful electron microscope. But you soon realize the very photon of light alters the course of the electron, thereby, one can never truly find the exact location of an electron. It's life's great mystery, this uncertainty principle of Heisenberg's.

Here is a good website that teaches the truth of the bible (John 17:17).

http://www.searchingfortruth.org/

Here is a good website which is on 24/7 teaching truth.

Gospel Broadcasting Network

http://www.gbntv.org/

I pray those searching for truth will go to these websites and see if the bible is actually being taught there (Acts 17:11).

11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Would your father not bless all your brother and sisteres? Would your father only bless you because you are you? Would your father only bless the children who say 'hi' to him in the morning, and would he not bless the children who ignore him? You should know the answer. The answer to your post.

Let's not say 'God should.' When you say 'God should' you sound like that we humans can design a god to our liking. Human are not perfect. If we design a god to fit our taste, the god we create cannot be perfect. Our God is perfect. There is nothing more we humans can add to his perfection. So 'God should' is not the right English expression.

To continue:

Who is our God?

Think of your father. Your father has his father, who you caLL grandfather. Your grandfather has is father, who you call great grandfather. Your great grandfather has his father, who you will refer as your great great grandfather. Your great great grandfather has his father, who you refer as your great great great grandfather-- and so on an so forth --count to a hundred 'great' of grandfathers, count to a thousand of 'great' grandfathers, count to a million of 'great' grandfathers, count to a billion of 'great' grandfathers, count to a trillion of 'great' grandfathers, count to the infinity of 'great'
grandfathers, until count to the first or the beginning of all the great grandfather in your family line. This very first or the beginninbg of all the great grandfathers in YOUR family line is OUR GOD, the same Heavenly Father Creator we call God. When we mention God,'we' mention the first of all the great grandfathers in 'YOUR' family line. The 'we' and the 'your' as mentioned in the preceding sentence makes us, you and us, all mankind, ONE.

A mathematician using 'Linear Algebra' using vectors, vector spaces, leanar equations in finite dimension, to the counting to the INFINITY can help you understand that there was a beginning of all the great grandfathers in the line of your family. So God is real, as real as your present physical father. This is why Chinese honor their ancestors because honoring their ancestor lead them to honor the first of all your great --to the INFINITY--grandfather, who is OUR GOD.

God is your great --counting great to the infinity --grandfather, until you end up counting to your first great --counting great to the infinity --grandfather. If you expect God, your father to have a grand daddy, then your count did not end at the right person. You should keep on counting until you really end at the first of all of your 'great'--keep on counting to the infinity --grandfather who should not have a father before him. The very first father in YOUR family line is OUR GOD.

Your statement shows that you ended up counting too soon. The way I explained is kind of abstract you might have missed my point.

I think there is no need for Chinese people to join the Christianity bandwagon. It has long been a declining religion in the west. Revive the tradition and value of Chinese Buddhism lost through the Cultural Revolution is a sufficient cure.

China has its own great tradition like Buddhist teaching to try to impose western Christianity on China would not modernise the nation.

Being modern is not the goal of a Christian or Christianity itself.

The goal is to sanctify the soul through truth (John 17:17)(2Tim.2:2).

The goal is for the soul of man to go to heaven after the death of this physical body (temple) we live in today (Matthew 25:33-40)(Luke 16:19-31).

Christianity is a spiritual kingdom (John 18:36)(Luke 17:21).

36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.(John 18:36)

21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.(Luke 17:21)

It is only through Jesus that the soul of man can be saved (John 14:6) There is no other avenue by which the soul can be saved.

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

No other man has ever made this claim,only Jesus.

21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.(Matthew 1:21)
