Is Christ Divided?

b_200_150_16777215_00_images_stories_kristus_patverums_visiem.jpgTo many it is of utmost importance to reunite the churches into a visible unity. This begs the question, is Christ divided? To them the dividedness of the churches reflects a dividedness in Christ.

But is Christ divided? The Sacred Scriptures say that He is not. As it was in Corinth, so it is in our congregations today. One says I’m of Apollo or of Zikmanis or of Bušs, the other says I’m of Paul or of Peter or of any other preacher that suits my fancy. The fallenness of man makes such divisions.

Christ is not divided. We are. Our broken hearts. Our sinful nature.

No Jesus or Know Jesus

This website is here to help you get to know Jesus. I are convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jesus Christ is God and Lord over all. He is the only Savior and Redeemer of mankind, and the only way to get to God the Father. 

I know this because I know Him. But do not just take my word for it. Investigate it! Check out the claims of Jesus for yourself.

Don't think that you know Him just because you've heard about Him.

Many people have heard about Princess Diana or George Washington or Mother Teresa... but few people knew them personally. It's the same way with Jesus... many people have heard about Him, but few people know Him like a friend.

If you take the time to get to know Jesus, I know that you will not be disappointed. Jesus loves you with an everlasting love, a love that will never, ever let you down. And if you let Jesus become your friend, He will stick closer to you than a brother.

So what about you? Do you know Jesus, or have you just heard about Jesus?

No Jesus... no peace. Know Jesus... know peace!

How do you see God?

man question markMy dean has said that in life people look to God in one of three ways.

1. They see GOD as DEBTOR.

As if He is in debt to us. God owes me a good life, good health, lots of wealth or whatever. But Jesus says "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto thee."

To Fear and Love God

Ten Commandments
Ten Commandments

"Now all the people witnessed the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off." ~Exodus 20:1-18

Martin Luther summed up the 10 commandments in these words: We are to love and fear the Lord.  It is, perhaps, easy to understand loving God, as He is our Creator and Redeemer, our Provider and Sustainer.  But these days, it is hard for Westerners to understand why we should fear Him.  In ages past this was a clear idea. Fear Him who has power and authority. The People of God saw His might, and feared Him.  Yet authority is not respected in this modern age. We tend to, at best, ignore it, at worst, revolt against it. Love God -- yes.  But FEAR Him?

Fear is not just a negative emotion that makes us run. It is a sign of respect, like when you go to see your boss or school principal when you have done something wrong. You fear the person who has power over you, to either reprimand you, fire you, or release you.  If such an emotional reaction is induced by human authority, how much more should God's authority affect us? But does it? The words of Jesus remind us "be not afraid of them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." ~Matthew 10:28

The Story of the Good Father

The Good FatherThen Jesus said:

A man had two sons. When the younger told his father, "I want my share of your estate now, instead of waiting until you die!" his father agreed to divide his wealth between his sons.

   A few days later this younger son packed all his belongings and took a trip to a distant land, and there wasted all his money on parties and prostitutes. About the time his money was gone a great famine swept over the land, and he began to starve. He persuaded a local farmer to hire him to feed his pigs. The boy became so hungry that even the pods he was feeding the swine looked good to him. And no one gave him anything.
