Ever wonder why Christianity is so hated by other religions and non-believers? I have often wondered that.
Christianity was named after Jesus Christ, a man who taught of loving God, first and foremost, and loving your neighbor as you love yourself.
Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Every single one of the Laws of the Ten Commandments falls under these two categories. The first four are about honoring, respecting, and loving the one and only true God. The other six are about honoring, respecting, and loving each other. Do you see that? There is more about us loving each other than there are about us loving Him. Why are laws of not stealing, not lying, not committing adultery, and not killing so hated? Why is a religion based on helping the poor and needy and giving what you have so hated? Why is that what Christ has to offer is so pushed aside by many? I’ll tell you why the people hate it. It’s because of you, dear Christian. Continue reading
Man’s constitution is not greater than the Lord’s word. When we allow sin because we feel we “have a right”, we are turning our back on God.
Homosexuality: Is it a sin?
So many churches and “christians” today are supporting and allowing gay marriage and gay rights. Jesus sat with sinners and dined with them but, He didn’t do it in supporting of their sin. He did it to teach them while He was among them. If He sat with a thief, He didn’t help the thief plan the heist. This is basically what the churches allowing such to go on are doing. Helping these sinners plan the heist by conducting gay marriages. This makes the church just as much a sinner. Man calls it “aiding and abetting”. Any bible believing christian knows that supporting or leading someone to sin is worse than committing the sin. God’s teachers are held more accountable. What are these people teaching when they allow or perform gay marriages? Continue reading
II Corinthians 13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
Ever wonder why the bible repeats so much of its content? It does so to establish truth. If you are in search of an answer from the bible, do not take just one verse and assume its message. What you have found is also some where else in that great book with even more details to clear up the message and give its truth. FACT: Scripture interprets scripture.
Deuteronomy 19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
This verse is stating that if a person is accused of something, he/she must be accused by at least one or two others before the matter is even investigated. Otherwise, its just hearsay or a rumor.
In every study you do of the bible, search for the second witness. It’s in there.
