For God loved….His. One.

He gave us His one and only Son.

This is the crux of the Christian message of hope and Eternity by believing in the death and resurrection of Jesus. God seeks each of us to have a personal relationship with Him, through His son Jesus and not any other way!

There is no mention in the New Testament of praying to Mary to intercede for us, in fact the New Testament makes it very clear that now Jesus has been revealed to the world He is our Intercessor!

In the Old Testament the Prophets had this prominent roles and many Christians misunderstand the scriptures to their peril. We are commanded to pray for each other and there are times that burdens may be carried, but we must not think we can side-line Jesus.

John 3:15-18,  Romans 8:15-16,  1 Timothy 2:1-2,  James 5:14-20.

Partakers. Two.

Who we Are!

We who claim faith in Jesus are no longer of the things of this world, yet we have to continue to live in the society that we are in!

The world must not influence us, because we are under the power of God’s Holy Spirit. We now should have no desires in our thinking, but the old nature will continue to tempt us to do a little here and there?

Many Christians attack or a Judgemental because we want to do what is right and to be do always trying to what is good, but this is what the bible teaches us to be like!

Romans 8:15-16,  2 Peter 3:14-17,  1 John 3:11.

Rumours of Wars. ONE.

‘Don’t Worry.

Yesterday a deluded young man chose to drive his truck into a crowd and kill over 85 people in the Bastille Night celebrations in Nice, Southern-France. Many things are being reported in the media, but he was leadon by educated people to fulfil their political agendas.

Many today are being deluded across the world to murder and mame in the name of this and that religion. But we who hold on to and profess our Christian faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus, must not worry about all these rumours.

Our calling is to live in the world, with the knowledge of promised Eternal Life and fulfill the Commands of God to share our faith with others near and far.

Deuteronomy 31:7-8, Proverbs 28:1, Matthew 24:8, Romans 10:15-17, Phillipains 1:27-28.

History of Conflicts. Two.

My Religion, My Ways, I, Me My-Self.

The Apostle Paul told us in his letters to the first Christians in the New Testament that he had met many false believers. They seemed to believe, but it was there actions and reactions that revealed their real intentions.

From excluding certain believers out of fellowship, to commiting adultry at the Communion/Lord’s table to being mentioned in the Book of Revelation as the Nicolations.

It is very hard to be a believer wither one is a Catholic or a Protestant, because denominational membership means nothing to God knowing our hearts. Faith may be measured in this world by filling in a card for either Confirmation or Baptism, but only God knows our Hearts.

1 Corinthians 3:4-7,  Colossians 2:18,  1 Timothy 1:20,  2 Peter 2;1,  Revelation 2:6,  15.

History of Conflicts. One.

Wars, Terrorism, Gangterism.

Africa, Europe and Ireland have all seen their fare share of these problems over the last two hundred years. Some will blame Imperialism, occupation, while others say it was a few trouble makers that started these problems?

Some will blame it on religious difference, sectarianism and criminal activity and all of these may have a semblence of truth in their own right?

The problems start when we refuse to let go, over time and put our faith we claim to have into practice. One may say I am religious, another I do good deeds, I’m Born-again or Evangelical?

But if we do not do what Jesus commands us to do, to love, to forgive, to be friendly, hospitable? Then what kind of faith do we have that is so cold to keep refusing, to reject, to hurt and hate.

Well its not the Chrtianity of the Holy Bible!

Psalm 94:1,  119:169,  Matthew 5:22,  Luke 23:34,  Romans 12:19.
