A True Christian . . . .
A True Christian does not calls Christianity a religion, but a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. (John 15:14-15, Hebrews 13:5, John 10:27-28, Proverbs 17:17, Job 5:19, Psalm 37:39)
A True Christian does not do good deeds so that he/she can get to heaven (for through Jesus Christ, he has a place in heaven), but so that you can take care of you fellow man and to love one another. (Romans 3:9-31, John 15:17, Luke 10:25-37, Ephesians 2:8-10)
A True Christian does not condemn others for their sins for God did not sent his son to the world to condemn it, but to save it through him. (John 3:17, Luke 6:37, 1 Peter 2:22)
A True Christian sings, dances, and praises God not so that he/she can impress other people or God, but because he/she loves God and his son. (Matthew 22:37-39)
A True Christian speaks for those who can't speak for themselves. (Proverbs 31:8-9)
A True Christian does not hate people, but sins. For those
Explanation of FaithLet me explain the problem science has with religion.' The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand.
'You're a Christian, aren't you, son?
'Yes sir,' the student says.
'So you believe in God?'
'Is God good?'
'Sure! God's good.'
'Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?'
'Are you good or evil?'
'The Bible says I'm evil.'
The professor grins knowingly. 'Aha! The Bible!'
He considers for a moment, 'Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?'
'Yes sir, I would.'
'So you're good!'
'I wouldn't say that.'
'But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn't.'
The student does not answer, so the professor continues.
'He doesn't, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Hmmm?
I've seen his passion....
"I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life."
I opened my eyes and I noticed that I wasn't in my room anymore and I wasn't even in my pajamas either.
I was in some kind of worn-out robes I've seen in Biblical movies and I'm wearing some kind of sandals. Also, it seems that I am in some kind of alley with old Middle-Eastern texture. Also, it looks like it is the middle of the day.
As I walk outside of the alley and into the street, I see people just minding their business and all. Some people were sweeping, tending to lambs, selling fruit, or just walking around.
I walked up to a kid, who was tending to a couple lambs and asked "Excuse me little one, but what city is this?" Then, I thought that this kid won't understand me. But the kid just looked at me and replied (either he can speak En
Why is there a Hell?Now, there are some of you who are asking:
"If God is a loving God, then why did he made Hell?"
There is a reason for it.
Hell was not originally made for us.
It was made for Satan and the angels who follow him.
But we have been tempted and fallen to the point of going there.
Satan was once a beautiful angel, probably the most beautiful around. He was a twinkle in God's eye and was a angel of light. He was a magnificent creature, glistening with all the colors of the rainbow as he stood close to the throne of God.
But, that wasn't enough to Satan or Lucifer.
He was not satisfied with what God gave him. Pride led him to envy, jealousy, hatred, rebellion, and finally to ruin. He tempted 1/3 of the angels of heaven to join him and try to overthrow God from his throne and become God himself.
For he has said in his heart "I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides o
Love Each Other
"Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgement on disputable matters.
One man's faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables.
The man who eats everything must not condemn the man who does, for God has accepted him.
Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.
One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.
He who regards one day as special, does so to the Lord.
He who eats meat, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to the Lord; and he who abstains, does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God.
For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone.
If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we bel
Saved . . . . .Maykala and Michael have been a couple since high school.
Even though they're not married, they live together in a apartment.
They are pretty lovey dovey to each other, but they used to fight a bit too much at time, to the point of getting on each others' throats.
They are also not religious. They both think that church and the stuff they teach is a waste of time.
At least until one day . . . . .
Maykala is at a hospital room, beside the beaten-up body of Michael, who is in a coma.
From what she heard, Michael was jumped in a alley by a bunch of punks. After they took his money, they decided to finish him off. Then, a couple of alley cats attacked them and scratch the living daylights out of the punks.
Then, cops came to the scene and both called an ambulance for Michael and catch the punks who hurt him (they didn't get very far due to their faces).
The person who told the cops was a unidentified homeless person who
A Loving Friend......
Jake has been a church going child ever since he was a boy.
He loved going there and is a true Christian.
He loved singing in church.
He loved doing what God wants him to do, that is to spread love.
He loved being a Christian.
But there was one thing that he wanted, but didn't get at the time.....
A pleasant face-to-face conversation with Jesus.
He knows that he'll see Jesus in heaven, but he wants to see him before that.......
Jake was just walking down the street to visit his pastor.
He was only suppose to meet him a hour later, but Jake likes to go there a bit earlier (old habit of his).
As he walked down the street by the park, Jake decides to sit on the bench so that he can clear his mind. Then, a homeless man came and sat by Jake. He has ragged clothes and looks like he would be in his thirties.
The man looks at Jake and says "Hello there."
Jake replied "Hello sir."
"Nice day, isn't it?"
"Oh yes it is, sir. The Lord must be happy today
