Give Thanks to God For Saving Us

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 11:29:03 -0500

Have you ever wondered if there is a way to deal with life's circumstances? Well, there is. Give thanks. Try asking Jesus to help you be thankful today, no matter what your circumstances are. As your focus shifts from your circumstances to the Lord, your viewpoint will shift.

The Problem of Racism and the Repentance to Ponder

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 07:11:31 -0500

I have always considered myself against racism. Then God showed me how racist I'm prone to be. I was shocked, then relieved. Can you identify?

A Look at Foot Washing

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 21:12:18 -0500

The subject of foot washing and its relevance today has sparked countless numbers of articles written to help shed light on yet another area of Christian speculation. Jesus used the foot washing as an illustration of humility and servitude. Should it be practiced today?

If God Sent His Son, Then Who Is God?

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 09:40:06 -0500

Christians and others who follow in the path of religious doctrine are simply incapable of logic, according to what they believe and put out. The idea that God sent his son to die for everyone's sins falls flat when you compare it to the other belief that the son is also the father. What, you might ask?

God's Pain On Display

Sat, 17 Mar 2018 09:23:02 -0500

It can be felt everywhere. It's the anger and retaliation against a corrupt and misguided world of retards. Why are people suffering?

Religions Are Based on Fear

Sat, 17 Mar 2018 09:23:00 -0500

A good salesman knows that to get an order one must generate fear related to what happens if the subject does not purchase. The old line of "well there is someone else waiting to take up the offer if you refuse it" usually works. The thought that another might benefit from one's refusal of an opportunity is behind all good business.

First Fruits In the Holy Bible

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 14:32:07 -0500

Leviticus 19:23-25 "And when you come into the land and have planted all kinds of trees for food, then you shall count the fruit of them as inedible and forbidden to you for three years; it shall not be eaten. 24 In the fourth year ALL their fruit shall be holy for giving praise to the Lord. 25 But in the fifth year you may eat of the fruit [of the trees], that their produce may enrich you; I am the Lord your God."

All the Host of Heaven Is Doomed, Isaiah 34:4

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 07:19:48 -0500

These are not my words but those of the Spirit of God which left this message in prophecy. The following questions are for those who believe in heaven and hell as places of eternal existence after death. Why would God promise to dissolve such places if they are real?

What Is So Special About Dakshinawarti Shankh?

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 11:19:19 -0500

This article is all about Dakshinawati Shank, its benifites, importance, why it is used for pooja in Hindu Religion, etc. Hindu Scriptures mention Shankha (Shells) as a sacred and religious object that evokes the divinity.

The Reality Of Christ And Christianity

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 07:20:13 -0500

So you have faith in Christianity and Christian theology (and therefore in the central figure of Jesus / Christ). How so, and why? Everything must be examined and questioned. Everything is grist for the mill. Nothing is sacred.

Who Are the Prophets of Jerusalem?

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 07:28:42 -0500

The city of Jerusalem is the home of the three major religions, Christianity, Judaism, and Muslim. It is the place where the prophets Jesus Christ and Mohammed supposedly rose upwards to heaven. It's also where the Temple of the Mount was built and then destroyed.

Striking in Its Simplicity

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 14:32:58 -0500

It upsets me when men of God mess up. They say and do what they want and it seems as if people follow them blindly.

He Must

Sun, 11 Mar 2018 16:50:26 -0500

The success of Jesus' earthly ministry was His continual desire to follow God's leading. Jesus was so tuned into God that His actions were not selective, but directional with a sense of urgency. "I MUST!"

For God So Loved the World That He Sent His Son

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 12:03:25 -0600

In the passage we heard from John's Gospel, Jesus states the reason why He came into the world. Jesus recalled God's remedy during the plague of poisonous serpents in Moses' day-healing those who looked on the bronze serpent-to foretell His death on the cross, where He would be lifted. Anyone who looks on Him in faith receives eternal life.

Spritual Groceries

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 11:59:31 -0600

We often take great care to make sure we have the best foods to eat. We go and buy from stores we know and trust. In this article, we will discuss how this can affect our spiritual growth as well.

Intriguing Sexual Images in Temples

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 11:58:22 -0600

While pornography is frowned on in most places the explicit sexual images in some temples, especially in India and Japan, make a mockery of women. The Japanese keep shells, such as the cowrie, as representative of the Mother God and the men are known to embrace them, even perform sexual acts with the. The Indian temples expose females as subjects of male sexual desires.

Why God in the New Testament (NT) Is Different to That of the Old Testament (OT)?

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 11:57:24 -0600

Few can read the full bible and come to grips with the great contradictions within its pages, so why is that so. Promoted as being the Word of God and correct in every aspect there should not appear to be any discrepancy. Before becoming aware of it my new bible, purchased when just 16 years of age, sat in its box for some 30 years with the plastic cover still around it.

What Does "Drawn From the Breasts' Mean in Isaiah 28:9?

Fri, 09 Mar 2018 14:42:37 -0600

Many struggle to read the Old Testament (OT) because of the enormous contradictions it poses with regards to the New Testament (NT). Only when the full extent of the deceit run by the religions was laid bare before my eyes did it become clear. This happened when the real God, the Spirit of the Universe, led me to study both books and, thereby, expose the full controversy.

The Stories Others Tell About You

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 14:37:51 -0600

In the radio program Monitor on RSG politicians pay tribute to Van Zyl Slabbert, past leader of the PFP. Many people respected him.

Tongues As a Learned Behavior

Wed, 07 Mar 2018 14:48:14 -0600

Anyone who wants to learn how to speak in tongues can do so. BUt none of these people are speaking in Biblical gifting, or the supernatural. Let me explain.

Do Not Doubt God's Word

Tue, 06 Mar 2018 14:34:18 -0600

Ezekiel 12:26-28, "Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 27 Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that [Ezekiel] sees is for many days to come, and he prophesies of the times that are far off. 28 Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord God: There shall none of My Words be deferred any more, but the Word which I have spoken shall be performed, says the Lord God."

"Tongues" in 1820's England

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 15:05:03 -0600

Edward Irving was a Presbyterian minister in London, being influenced by Alexander Scott and others. They had come to the conclusion that there must be miracles today and they began to fast and pray about it. Strangely, Irving, a very dynamic speaker, and a generally good man, was influenced greatly by Samuel Coleridge, a poet but not a Christian, with many false views.

When Our Prayer Seems To Go Unanswered

Sun, 04 Mar 2018 17:47:00 -0600

I believe that one of the ingredients that is used to challenge faith is unanswered prayer. Satan sees the opportunity to inject a virus into our faith when he sees us struggling to have our prayers answered.

Tongues, a Sign to Unbelieving Israel

Sun, 04 Mar 2018 17:41:27 -0600

The apostle Paul made it clear that the phenomenon of speaking in unlearned languages was a sign to the unbelieving Jew prophesied long ago by Isaiah. When the Jews lost their city in judgment in AD 70, there was no longer a need for this sign gift.

House-Cleaning the Temple

Sat, 03 Mar 2018 17:42:54 -0600

What is the one thing many of you do at least once a year, especially in the spring? I bet most of you did some spring cleaning. Spring is a good time to give your house a good going over and clean everything up and get rid of a lot of junk that you don't need. Today I want to tell you about a time when Jesus did some spring cleaning. It was time for the annual Passover celebration, so Jesus traveled to Jerusalem. When He arrived, He went to the temple. He couldn't believe his eyes. There in the temple area he saw people who were selling cattle, sheep, and doves for the people to use as sacrifices in the temple. There were tables set up for money changers so that people could change their money to pay their temple taxes. It looked more like a carnival than a house of worship.

Not Compromising God's Creation

Sat, 03 Mar 2018 09:41:54 -0600

The Christian church has evolved in my lifetime to where I don't even recognize what I grew up with. We are being asked to compromise God's creation and are accused of being hypocrites if we don't support it.

Can We Understand Satan's Thoughts?

Sat, 03 Mar 2018 09:34:48 -0600

People have cringed at the thought of the power of Satan. Others deny his existence and still others make fun of him in all kinds of ways. If we ignore Satan, we do not see him coming. When we are overly concerned, he mesmerizes us.

Speaking in Tongues Today?

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 14:32:56 -0600

Do people actually speak in unlearned languages in our day? Is regeneration really different from the filling of the Spirit? Why has the church divided over this?

Is Religion Like Climbing A Ladder Up To Heaven?

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 14:25:33 -0600

Despite the advances of secularism, many people have had various kings of religions influences during their upbringing. And with an inevitable variety of beliefs, often people were given the idea that faithful adherence to their religion will gradually bring them higher, until at the end of life, each one can rest assured that they have done everything necessary to reach heaven itself. So, the big question is - is it really as straightforward a matter like climbing a ladder of faithfully observed religious practices? As this is a most vital subject, we shall need to be as clear as possible in our answer.

Mention of Satan As Bolon Yokte in the Maya Hieroglyphs

Thu, 01 Mar 2018 14:19:24 -0600

Who was ancient Maya god Bolon Yokte? This god is associated with underworld Xibalba and also with the events of creation. Mayan believed that Bolon Yokte was present at the time of creation of human. Was Bolon Yokte in fact Satan himself?

Death Is the Wrong Word

Thu, 01 Mar 2018 06:57:41 -0600

Most world religions teach that the end is death. Wrong! Born again is a better description.

Chosen, Loved and Special

Tue, 27 Feb 2018 15:05:06 -0600

So often one comes up against the question: What am I actually doing here on earth? What is my purpose?

Max Weber on Capitalism

Tue, 27 Feb 2018 06:59:11 -0600

Max Weber's The Protestant Ethic and additionally the Spirit of Capitalism is research on the connection between the values of the emergence and ascetic Protestantism of the spirit of contemporary capitalism. Weber argues that the religious opinions of groups like the Calvinists had a role in building the capitalistic spirit.

God and His Tests

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 20:31:40 -0600

Have you ever been asked by someone to do something that did not make sense to you? If so, then you can understand what went through Abraham's mind when God asked him to sacrifice his son Isaac, the story of which is in Genesis 22:1-19.

Trim The Wick

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 07:17:08 -0600

Jesus used light as an example of one of the characteristics of a true Believer. He told His followers that they were the light of the world and as a result would stand out for all to see.

Yet Even More Religious Shorts

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 09:11:18 -0600

Of all of those Big Questions central to philosophical concepts that surround life, the universe and everything, the realms of theology and religions and the nature of deities continue to fascinate. There's the pro side; there's the anti-side. There aren't too many fence-sitters. I'm in the anti-camp as the following fourth helping of mini religious short pieces illustrate.

A Look At Bible Worship

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 09:11:01 -0600

We know what contemporary worship looks like. How about Bible worship? Is there any similarity?

Artificial Intelligence, Responsibility And Christianity

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 18:23:53 -0600

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a specialised branch of robotic control engineering applied to the human-machine interface. Significant research programmes are developing the next phase of artificial intelligence. Is the intriguing goal of creating humanoids with a sort of self-awareness an attainable goal? Even without self-awareness, robots have multiple uses, even learning to tackle more challenging tasks. There are many interrelated issues here, not least those of ethics and State regulation. This brief article aims to discuss these on an introductory level, and also how this challenges Christianity.

Professing Christ Yet Obeying Satan

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 14:37:41 -0600

Romans 16:17-18 (AMPC) "I appeal to you, brethren, to be on your guard concerning those who create dissensions and difficulties and cause divisions, in opposition to the doctrine (the teaching) which you have been taught. [I warn you to turn aside from them, to] avoid them. 18 For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ but their own appetites and base desires, and by ingratiating and flattering speech, they beguile the hearts of the unsuspecting and simpleminded [people]."

How We Are Justified by Faith

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 21:21:45 -0600

The basis of Abraham's relationship with God was faith, and faith is the primary basis of our relationship with God. Abraham's faith was confidence in a person-God. The object of faith matters more than anything else.

More Than a Difference of Opinions

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 14:51:25 -0600

Instead of getting caught up in all the divisive ruckus, we can, to the best of our ability, let our light shine. We can bring people the Good News about our good God, and about His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

A Time To Speak

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 14:47:18 -0600

After decades of seeing my Biblical faith assaulted in one church after another, I have decided to come out of the Pentecostal/charismatic movement. This article is my personal story of how all that came about.

The Sign Of The Beast

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 14:53:48 -0600

To majority of people on earth, it is business as usual. But not so for many sensitive people and clairvoyants who incidentally are discovering that there is a lot of cosmic influences going on today on earth. Many have become unduly irritable, losing empathy, noticing that many other people are becoming repugnant to them; many are losing friends and finding out that more and more they are becoming part of a lonely generation, a generation psychically separated from the rest of humanity.

Surely Religious People Worship The Same God

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 14:44:12 -0600

'There's no need to keep on preaching at me like that, we all worship the same God!' People in one religion are at times inclined to believe they ought to get converts from other religions to join theirs. After all, they have always been taught to believe only theirs is right and all the others are wrong. On the other side is the belief that if there is one God, he will accept the sincere worship of people in different religions. Just how do we sort this one out?

Does Christianity Prove The Existence Of Christ?

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 06:53:20 -0600

Does Christianity prove the actual existence of Christ as depicted in Christianity's holy texts? Does Christ prove the tenants of Christianity? My short answer is "no". Read on.

The Mobile Classroom

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 21:02:07 -0600

Jesus conducted mobile classrooms on many occasions. As they would be walking, Jesus would see an opportunity to bring an illustrated teaching to His Apostles. He would use the daily occurrences to instruct His followers.

Pals Need One Another

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 07:18:12 -0600

Right at the end of his letter to the people of Colossae Paul gives us a glimpse of his support network. Paul conveys the greetings of his friends: Aristarchus, Mark, Jesus (also called Justus), Epaphras, Luke, Demas and naturally Tychicus and Onesimus who we got to know in the previous two devotions.

The Power in Prayer

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 07:14:26 -0600

Watching the news these days is numbing. Until you've been a victim of crime it is hard to comprehend. Our society does not want to acknowledge God yet in the face of tragedy asks for prayer.

Is Darkness a Balance to the Light?

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 15:00:28 -0600

There has been a controversy on the difference between light and darkness, with many arguing that there must have to be a balance, that one cannot exist without the other. But that can only be possible on earth, where everybody-and everything-meet in a jumbled mixture. Some quote the hermetic law of As above so below.

Clergy Robes Or Choir Robes Wearing Notes On Christmas Religious Activities

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 14:51:36 -0600

Christmas is that part of the year when happiness and colors are all around us. We love to spend this time of the year with God, our family, and our relatives. Thanking God for His blessings to us throughout the year is customary and churches are the place to do it.

How to Worship God According to Jesus

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 14:37:24 -0600

The choices we make today affect our future. Our words, our actions, how we use our money, the time we spend in prayer can be translated to eternal treasure when they are submitted to God. What the world offers isn't what we are looking for. It leaves us disappointed.

On the Road With Jesus

Sun, 11 Feb 2018 19:26:54 -0600

Jesus did a lot of walking during His ministry. On this particular occasion, Jesus and His entourage were heading to Jerusalem where He would shortly offer the greatest sacrifice the world would ever know. As they approached the city, Jesus would face a request that would cause conflict within the group. How would He handle it?

Some Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces: Round Twenty

Sun, 11 Feb 2018 09:40:09 -0600

Philosophical concepts that surround life, the universe and everything, including those realms of theology, religions and the nature of deities continue to fascinate. Opinions proliferate. There's the theist pro side; there's the atheist anti-side. There aren't too many fence-sitters. I'm still in the anti-camp as the following twentieth helping of "Religious Bits and Pieces" illustrate.

Get Your Free Prescription For The Flu Here

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 15:06:47 -0600

We have been told to do a number of things such as wash your hands, avoid close contact with sick people, cover your mouth and nose when sneezing and coughing, stay at home when you are sick and by all means get the flu vaccine. These are all very good practical measures to prevent catching the flu. I personally do not like flu shots and even health officials are telling us that the flu vaccines aren't perfect, but there is one cure that is perfect and that's God's Word.

Don't Talk About Sin - There Is No Such Thing

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 14:46:22 -0600

Yes, it's time to make up our minds about this issue, because a lot depends on it. Either all the stuff we don't like such as war, murder, starvation, disease, rape, thieving, gang warfare and drug addiction, and young lives messed up by the social media is all just what is - it's not nice but it's normal. So, if it's all just so naturally normal, either evolution slowly sorts it out, or else, all this stuff, including my own heart is deeply affected by something called 'sin'. I believe there is not a third alternative. This subject provokes many questions but we ought, at least, to make a shot at answering the most central ones. Here goes.

The Reformation of 500 Years Ago and Do We Need Such Radical Reformation Today?

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 15:28:39 -0600

The significance of The Reformation has been highlighted over these past months and for many it has been a time of relooking at the basics. The Reformation across Europe saw Europe experience turbulence and challenge at all kinds of social and religion levels. It was a time for change and transformation and these occasions seldom go smoothly. 500 years ago Martin Luther nailed his 95 thesis, or propositions for discussion, to the door of Wittenberg Cathedral in Germany. Is the Reformation over? By no means! Might this strike a relevant chord in your heart and mind and fellowship and community? If yes, then this is the moment for us to do something powerful and relevant and loving about the situation.

You May Be the Only Bible

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 07:11:38 -0600

Whether you like it or not, people are watching you. I don't know why, but people are sitting with their magnifying glasses just looking for that place where you stepped outside the line of the playing field.

Pray for One Another

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 07:10:57 -0600

I believe in prayer. It was my mom spending so much time on her knees praying for her children that prevented us from losing the way big time.

Saying Thank You Protects Me

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 07:10:31 -0600

During prayer, it is firstly not about me. Even less is prayer a shopping list where I only tell God what I want.

Sin and Separation From God

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 07:10:04 -0600

Sin that goes unchecked among a people may similarly become an epidemic. The aim of God's Laws about cleanliness was to protect the people from disease, but more importantly, to teach them by vivid lessons how God wanted purity, holiness, and cleanliness among His people. Failure to obey these laws was considered sin.

Why I Favor Building the Wall - But Not the One Trump Wants

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 07:08:16 -0600

I'm in favor of the wall, but not the one President Trump wants to build at our southern border. The wall I support already exists, and has been up since the founding of the Republic. Trump and his Republican base seem determined to remove or lower this wall to a point that it no longer bars religion from government. The slide into theocracy won't come with a dramatic tearing down of the wall of separation; it will result from the kinds of incursions this administration and it's allies are promoting, little by little and bit by bit, often noticeably, often not so much so. The wall is crumbling, not falling and this part of our constitutional infrastructure needs a great deal more attention before a collapse is complete.

So Much Religion, So Little Morals

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 14:41:43 -0600

The earth today has become a being without a soul. While religion has been on the increase, immorality has also been increasing in geometric proportions. And man saunters on, thinking too much of his intellectual achievements and moving more and more to false theism.

Might It Be Nothing Other Than Sin That Blinds Our Eyes From Seeing This Crucial Answer?

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 14:39:08 -0600

Here we are dealing with a question which is so highly relevant in various categories in these present days. It is a political question which can cause all kinds of difficulties and it is a religious question which has been on our news reports for many years and which has been given a higher profile quite recently following statements and tweets emerging from The White House in Washington, D.C. Who is a true Jew? Is there an answer? And, if there is a reliable answer are we willing to accept that answer?

Molecules, Madness Or Meaning

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 14:33:15 -0600

One of the greatest challenges to serious thinkers who accept evolution is the basis of their own rationality. For if it comes entirely from molecules, how come I know things that seem to be way beyond the ability of molecules? Is my sense of personal consciousness and of being in an understandable universe just a marvel of evolution, or does it only lead to the final absurdity, where nothing has any meaning, except that thought, and I just make up my own story, or is there a path to real meaning and truth - if only!

A Look at The Rich Young Ruler

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 16:22:49 -0600

Today, people are confusing works and faith as a prerequisite to obtaining eternal life. Some believe that displaying attributes of compassion and doing to others as they would want done to them evidences spiritual character and, as a result, eternal life awaits them.

To Be A Christian, What Does This Really Mean?

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 08:16:07 -0600

These days, it seems that there are so many different "versions" of Christianity. There is always someone with a new interpretation, a denomination, or a new definition of what it means to believe in Christ.

How Can Prayer Help You?

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 08:16:03 -0600

Learn and discover the ways prayer may be able to help you. Prayer helps us to continue to grow in our faith. Even though we may feel at times that we are weak, God is greater than us.

You Cannot Threaten A Child of God

Sat, 03 Feb 2018 08:07:40 -0600

1 Chronicles 16:21-22 "He (God) allowed no man to do them wrong; yes, He reproved kings for their sakes, 22 Saying, Touch not My anointed, and do My prophets no harm." Dear people of God, a friend of mine told me today how his cousin once said the only reason he was paying school fees for his daughter was because she was his biological child.

Two Sides of Every Coin

Sat, 03 Feb 2018 07:59:50 -0600

When we look at a coin we will never understand its value until we examine both sides. So it is with all things.

Fanaticism Means Faith in Latin

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 08:47:40 -0600

The institution of Faith has always strived on collectivism. But the ripple occurs when different ethnic, cultural and geographical demographics cannot subscribe to such unity of command based on varying needs of diverse groups. Since these differences can be wide and varied- they lead to different versions of the same belief structures.

Why Is This Affliction Happening To Me?

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 14:35:36 -0600

Dear people of God, as a young immature Christian, I saw a trend amongst the Pentecostals, which was some congregations taught that once someone was in Christ, all his or her problems in this life were over. This statement is true depending on the explanation offered.

Fueled by Prayer

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 07:16:09 -0600

Corrie Ten Boom said prayer is the engine room of every congregation. If a congregation doesn't pray, it's going one way - downhill.

How To Chart Your Way To Greatness

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 14:11:58 -0600

Have ever had friends who complain about how things are hard and how difficult life is? Well, I have! And statements like that get me thinking because I wouldn't give answers without scriptural basis and in the course of my research I came across answers that every believer should consider.

God Has No Contingency Plans

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 07:19:26 -0600

Sometimes with human beings you hear of a contingency plan or plan B as some call it. What this means is that they have an alternative plan in place just in case the first one fails.

Dealing With Offenses

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 07:16:14 -0600

Every person has been offended sometime or other in their life. How we responded to those offenses is a good barometer of our spiritual maturity. How should we deal with offenses in our lives? The Bible makes it clear!

The Authority of Jesus

Sun, 28 Jan 2018 12:03:42 -0600

We've all played games as children, and some of us still play games today-games such as golf or curling. Every game has rules, and so does life. Our rulebook is the Bible, and it was written by God. We have to learn the rules before we can play any game, and we have to know the rules God gives us. The only way we can learn God's rules is to read and study the Bible both by ourselves and as part of a larger group.

Death, The Beyond, Paradise, Hell And Purgatory

Fri, 26 Jan 2018 07:17:40 -0600

If there is anything that there is consensus of belief and conviction on, it is that everything must one day die that is regarded as being alive, as long as they are in the material world. To this fact all-religious people, scientist, agnostics, atheist-all converge in agreement.

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 08:24:28 -0600

Many people have said that the Jesus whose story is told in the New Testament is not the historical Jesus. They say that historical research cannot possibly discover the real Jesus of faith because he is not rooted in history; therefore he does not symbolize anything.

I mean, how would God expect me to know how to pick exactly the right one? And then, what's that bit about "finding" - is it like a momentous discovery.' Yes, I do accept this is a challenge. There are so many religions and ways of life, how will we check them out?

Over the following 2 to 4 years the church grew exponentially, from the initial 120 followers to thousands, but the church was limited to Jerusalem only and consisted of Jews only.
