Alone of all the beliefs of mankind, whether religious or political or philosophical,“Christianity (including its Old Testament foundations) is based upon historical acts and facts. Other religions are centered in the ethical and religious teachings of their founders, but Christianity is built on the great events of creation and redemption”(Henry Moris, Many Infallible Proofs, Creation Life Publishers, p. 10).<quoted text>
Simple Shamma...I have been there..Done it...Worn the T'shirt...and I KNOW it is ALL a SHAM.
You are probably that "sheep" of a congregation member naively waiting for your shepherd to DIE for you!!
Only Shepherd who will die for sheep is a loony nutcase shepherd.
His job is to make sure he is ALIVE and WELL to take care of the darn sheep!!!!
Let me tell you...
Jesus is NOT God.
This is a lie pumped by the establishment for the uneducated, impressionable, low IQ peasants who all went "baaaaa"..."baa ah" "baal" like the proverbial sheep!
The ACID TEST is this...
When did Jesus make any DIRECT claim that he was God who took on human form as his son to die for the sins of gentiles and through his death/sacrifice and by accepting it...people can have eteranl ife?
Worshipping Jesus is the result of Satan's work.
By making YOU worship Jesus, Satan makes sure that Jesus suffers in Hell as a false prophet and seducer.
Stop worshipping him if you really love him.
The Moslem faith is based on the teaching of Mohammed. Buddhism is based on the teachings on a man who was called Buddha. Confucianism on the teachings of Confucius. Marxism on the teachings of Karl Marx, and evolution on the teachings of Darwin. Not one of these is based on the observation of historical data or facts, but on the teachings and theories of men. Remember, evolution is based on theory and not on observable data.
Christianity, however is founded, not on what Jesus taught (and this distinction is vital for us to grasp) but on who Jesus is and on what Jesus did. Believers, of course, stand on Christ’s teachings. No one ever spoke and taught like Jesus, but the value of what He said was dependent on who He was and what He did. This gave the teachings of Christ authority and placed them all alone in the category of absolute truth.
All other beliefs are based on the teachings and ideas of men who were nothing more than men. No matter how brilliant or appealing they may be to some, there is no guarantee of their objectivity, accuracy, or ultimate ability to deliver what they promise (cf. Col. 2:20-23).
Christianity (in its beliefs and tenants) alone is based on historical and objective facts rather than the subjective ideas of man. Its truthfulness stands on the validity of historical records which are subject to investigation and examination.
Because the resurrection gives assurance to all, because it is the proof of His person and work, it also becomes the condemnation of all other religions, philosophies of men, and all who do not know the Lord Jesus as the their personal Savior by faith. The resurrection stands as either our proof of one’s justification or as one’s condemnation. It becomes a proof of a coming day of reckoning, a day when God will reckon with mankind on the basis of the perfect righteousness of Jesus Christ.
But for the believer in Christ, it is the proof of a coming day of examination and rewards to be followed by days without end of eternal bliss and joy in the presence of God.
