The title of this blog is an interesting question indeed, and the truth be told, He was one of us. The scripture teaches us that Jesus came into the world not to judge it, but, that the world through Him might be saved. The key word being, “Might”. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man can come to the Father except he comes through me.” He also said, “If there was another way I would have told you.” So Jesus, not willing to fool or ensnare anyone in any way, thereby hindering their ability to understand and comprehend his message to mankind. rather succinctly spelled out what we had to do in order to inherit eternal life and the forgiveness of sins.
There is no grey area as it pertains to his message. Repent, be baptized in his name, and believe in His life, death, and resurrection from the dead for the forgiveness of sins. There are many groups out there who claim that I am confused and that they have a better way than that which I have just set forth. They choose to ignore the virgin birth, the miracles witnessed by thousands, the resurrection of the dead in Jerusalem at the time of his crucifixion, Jesus being seen after his death by multitudes, the empty tomb, and His ascension into heaven in the eyes of hundreds of witnesses. And they do this at their own peril.
A certain ignorant man, who was interviewing me about my Bigfoot books several weeks ago, who grooms himself to appear like Captain Kangaroo in 2018, which in and of itself should tell you something about him. Went on a rant in the middle of my interview, an interview which I should have just hung up on, about the day which Christmas is celebrated on, and how in his mind it was a pagan holiday and the like. I said to him and I say to you, I don’t care what day Christmas is celebrated on. I am frankly just grateful that it is. And the truth be told, I celebrate my Saviors birth every day of the year.
As Christmas quickly approaches, remember that Jesus is the reason for the season, and push aside the garbage that your Jehovahs Witness cousin is spewing out as well as your co-workers of every religious ilk imaginable. I believe in the shed blood of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins and that’s my final answer. You can choose to follow a mule into the desert if you wish, but, as for me and my house, we will follow the Lord. Merry Christmas to all!… To be continued
