Jesus is the Being who lived, laughed, loved, in the manner with which I can identify. He also carried the same sorrows which I sometimes carry. In all those ways, he modeled behavior which was pleasing to his Father. In that way I know how to strive to please my Father.
As it is said of Jesus “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” Luke 2:52
When Jesus was on earth he was fully man inspired and anointed by God. The things he knew he learned in the same manner as other men. Even Jesus grew spiritually as well as intellectually. If man wants to reach his full intellectual potential, he should achieve his full spiritual potential.
There are so many who seem to have a generic God, but it is hard to have a generic Jesus. But many want to take the “God” out of Him. Try teaching Jesus as the Way, the only Way to Heaven and the lines of tolerance are quickly drawn! (Perhaps I should say “lines of intolerance”)
A few years ago, a member of a team of in-training ministers said they had been learning to witness without mentioning Jesus. Huh? Witnessing to what? A witness that will draw one to salvation MUST draw one to Jesus.
Breaks my heart to see him stripped from the walls and halls of many churches. Can you find His Name in your church?
There you go again partner. “Try teaching Jesus as the Way, the only Way to Heaven and the lines of tolerance are quickly drawn! (Perhaps I should say “lines of intolerance”)”
Try teaching to the followers of the book that there are many ways to the same destination and we should live and let live, then see the swords drawn and battle cries begin😀.
Peace be on you Oneta.
Did you join the rally for your hero in Tulsa?😀 I hope not, for your long and healthy life.
Take care and stay safe.
Try out the “two” views on Oprah and see which is hailed, and which is mocked. Glad to see you are still up the the sport. I watched President Trump but no I didn’t go. Watch for the joyful report of an uprise of Covid in Oklahoma; will be gleefully reported to you I am sure. Will it be true? And will anyone care. Only about the stats. Do you believe the reporters will sorrow over some Ok Repub MAGA hat wearers dying in Oklahoma? See you later. I have some real up-setters for this week if I’m not too lazy. Maybe not. We Christians are not taught to fight with the sword; we are supposed to pray, stand still, and watch the salvation of the Lord. Most of us think God is too slow. By the way we never discuss these disastrous urban centers – you know those run by the Democrats. Isn’t that Seattle situation cute?
