Even on the cross He did not hide Himself from sight; rather, He made all creation witness to the presence of its Maker.
How would I know what Jesus would have done? That fella was a mass of contradictions as far as I can see. One minute he says to turn the other cheek, the next minute he’s having a big strop and kicking over lads’ market stalls. He says blessed are the meek and he goes around shouting and roaring the odds to everyone. He rises from the dead and then shags off a few weeks later and leaves his buddies in the shit.
Raising your children to love and serve Jesus is fulfilling one of God’s highest callings upon your life.
The Christ event did not in that sense CHANGE the will of God, but rather it more clearly expressed God’s eternal will toward the whole of history.
The real beauty is living life to it’s fullest, to reach a destination and live life for the Lord.
I am a follower of Jesus and a student of the Buddha.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,
Jesus is the only significance. Beside Jesus nothing has any significance. He alone matters.
Some would say a whore don’t have no expectation of Heaven. I’d say, if she gives value for cash, she’s got a better shot at God’s blessing than your average banker. Jesus loved Mary Magdalene. He kicked over tables when He met a moneylender.
I am now convinced that children should not be subjected to the frightfulness of the Christian religion …. If the concept of a father who plots to have his own son put to death is presented to children as beautiful and as worthy of society’s admiration, what types of human behavior can be presented to them as reprehensible?
