Speaking with Reason

Listen, brothers, sisters, we don’t speak or write foolish things upon our claims as Christians in saying we follow Jesus, the truth. Most will derive there understanding as follows: Jesus was either a fool, liar, a good teacher, or who he said he was, the son of God. It is historically inaccurate to say he never existed, even apart of scripture it can be revealed. It is wrong to state he was a fool for he spoke with knowledge and truth of what was known in that age, even coming to Pilate and revealing he was without guilt. One can say he was a good teacher but must also understand the miracles he allowed to come to pass, healing the sick, raising the dead. No man has or will ever do what Jesus has done. Now to say or come to the conclusion that he is who he said he was, the son of God, something is revealed to you when you understand this.

Why were the early Christians willing to die for following Jesus? It is even spoken about outside of scripture how the “Christians” lived differently, helping the poor, living a way apart from sin, repenting, helping one another, and worshiping Jesus for they believed him to be raised from the dead. Raised from the dead. That in itself was a bold claim and yet we also see Paul declaring that if no one believed his testimony to ask those hundreds of people who did see the Christ resurrected. He is the son of God, “before Abraham was, ‘I Am’, the first and the last”. The one who said, I and the Father are one, the Jews knew at the time what he was declaring. “My Lord and my God”, he did not refute or disallow worship to him. The Father spoke saying, “even the angels worship him”, all was given to him, heaven and Earth. People question the trinity or Jesus, but our finite minds will never truly comprehend.

There is one God: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are distinct Persons. The Bible speaks of the Father as God (Philippians 1:2), Jesus as God (Titus 2:13), and the Holy Spirit as God (Acts 5:3–4). But when it is revealed and we are allowed to grasp the supremacy of Christ, the reality of God, we are held in awe. Stand firm in your beliefs. Christianity is not religion, it is not a way of works though we understand faith without works is dead. We are not saved by our own accord for God has predestined us as the elect, we understand we are saved by grace through faith. Keep running the race. Don’t be swayed by false doctrines or high sounding philosophies. Scripture has stood the test of time and provided historical authenticity. Science doesn’t dispute the bible, nor does history. Research and study. Seek the Lord and he shall reveal all through his wisdom. Let our faith stand amidst the trials and let us live proclaiming his kingdom come, will be done. Leading many towards the truth, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
