Getting tired of people flippantly saying, ¨Oh my god!¨ Ever wonder who their ¨god¨ is!? Does that ¨god¨ know he is ¨theirs¨? Do you say that?
We are quite the god-makers, are we not! What do you mean…“your God”? We can´t mold Him into whatever we want Him to be. God is who He says He is – not what you say He is!
8 But now, O LORD, You are our Father,
We are the clay, and You our potter;
And all of us are the work of Your hand.
9 “Woe to the one who quarrels with his Maker–
An earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth!
Will the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you doing?’
Or the thing you are making say, ‘He has no hands’?
There is no conglomerate Allah – God the Father – Thor ¨God¨, and what-have-you. There is only …God. It is contradictory to believe they all are the same one God. All religions purport differing, conflicting ideas about God. It is absolutely impossible that they are one and the same.
Could it be that God has revealed Himself to man? Could it be that there is enough evidence to demand a closer look into claims of divinity? Have you tried to examine the data available – to see for yourself? Don’t you think the consequences of being wrong – are motivational enough to give it a shot!?
“I am the Lord,
and there is no one else.”
– Isaiah 45:18
The Bible says that those who have not accepted Christ as their personal God and Savior – will spend an eternity without God and everything good. That sound okay with you? Are you going to place your bets on some inferior philosophy or religion!?… when right now you are hearing about the Truth, the real thing, God Himself?
I am amazed by the choice of the majority of humankind: they do not choose to believe what God has revealed from heaven! God revealed Himself to mankind in the form of Jesus Christ, the Messiah of the Jews. How about it: are you going to really examine the facts, and decide for yourself based on what you can see for yourself?
I am a Christian because….
I am a Christian because the Bible is too good to have been a fabrication of man. It had to have been orchestrated – by God. The contents of the Bible (66 books) were written over a period of hundreds of years, by writers who did not know the others nor collaborate with them – separated by hundreds of miles – and yet everything ties together without any discrepancies, and Jesus the Messiah fulfilled over 360 prophecies written by these writers. Impossible, except by God.
I am a Christian because of tangible evidence of the divinity of Christ. He fulfilled over 360 prophecies written about the coming Messiah – way too many to have been completed by chance. Christ was God in human form.
- to be able to die in our place
- to be able to give us pardons for our sinfulness
- to be able to satisfy God’s sense of justice
- to turn away God’s wrath against evil
- to be able to set us free from our death sentence
- to be able to make us perfect before the Great Judge on Judgement Day
I am a Christian because Jesus said He was the only way to God the Father (John 14:6), that nobody comes to God – except through acceptance of Christ. Even if I wanted to, which I do not, I could not have earned God’s acceptance no matter what I tried to do.
There is only one way to become acceptable to God: the simple act of truly yielding my will to Him, accepting the free gift of salvation in Christ through repentance. I did that. There is no way to deceive God and just act like I have yielded in obedience to Him! He knows my every thought! How could “the clay” fake-out “the potter”!? No way.
So what about you? Have you examined the evidence that Christians claim to be irrefutable? If not – there is no better time than now. It may be the last “now” you have before suddenly standing before the Great White Throne Judgement Seat of Christ.
Why should He, the God of the Universe, let you into His Kingdom?
