CHRISTIANITY

JESUS IS LORD!
In his famous book "Mere Christianity", Lewis makes this statement; "A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic - on the level with a man who says he is a poached egg - or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us."

I am of Christian faith, and for reasons other than what I've been taught or learned from the Bible. I believe people are led to Christ through love and by example, not by threatening hell and damnation. I'm not perfect - God is still working on me! I'm sure some that I know will shake their heads and think, "Oh no, we've lost another one!" Logically thinking, one would have to consider what I was lost from, and more importantly, whether the state I was lost from was really worth belonging to in the first place. Additionally, in order to be lost "from" something, there must be "something else" to compare it to; whether that be a social status or moral state of being. So in order to claim that I'm "lost" you must first argue your own state in the universe and if that suits you just fine from a moral and/or spiritual prospective, then I suppose I could be lost from that. Whatever the case, it's not my job to determine your state of being. I can only make claim to my own. I do know that God is real. Jesus is real. I'm always happy to share why I can make those statements. The actual events that led to my belief still amaze me even today.

I believe there is one Body of Christ, the universal church. I refuse to discuss denomination differences. I believe all Christians are united as one Body according to Scripture. I also believe the "church" is a body of believers and not a building. This is scripturally supported in the New Testament. Something else to keep in mind is that God did not create all the various religions we see around us. Man did. I'm still amazed that Satanism is a recognized religion in the U.S. Army and witches are allowed to take "holidays" off in the Air Force. The devil really knows how to cloud and confuse an issue.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jews first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith" ~ Romans 1:16-17.

Don't take my word for it, click HERE if you would like to get to know Jesus yourself. I've compiled some REALLY interesting links below and love to discuss the Gospel if you want to e-mail me. I'm also always happy to share my personal testimony with anyone interested. May God bless you with all peace and happiness and may God continue to bless America! ~ Ed
Romans 10:8-10 ~ "But what does it say? "The word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart" (that is the word of faith that we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation."


Isaiah 53:5 ~ "But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed."



Mathew 25:31-40 "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'

Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'

"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'
