Keeping Christ in Christmas

- Have you thought about the current religious and social scene in America; especially during this time of year of Christmas. Religion has once again been forced to the forefront of the news, with groups fighting over whether to have a “Nativity Scene” in the public square, others are debating about using the word “Christmas” in their sales ads, and then we hear schools are not going on “Christmas break” but winter break. In our changing society, I wonder if anyone of us has stopped to ask what did God intend by sending His Son, Jesus Christ to this earth....   [tags: religion, christmas, jesus christ]

The Illegal Proceeding of Christ's Trial

- There were many, many illegal things that happened at Jesus' trial. Their goal was to get Him condemned, not to truly and lawfully find out if He was guilty. They had been trying for a long time to find a way to put Him to death. Now, they had him in their hand and they did their best to get rid of Him. “If these men had intended to conduct a legal trial, a specific charge would have been made against Christ, and a warrant for His arrest would have been issued.”1 Since this was not what they wanted, they just twisted things to help them succeed in there agenda....   [tags: Jesus Christ, Bible, Trial, Blasphemy]

The Death Of Jesus Christ

- “By what authority?” is a question that has likely come across every single living human beings mind, whether in this language or by this mode of communication. Why does one, as opposed to another, gain the power to decide fundamental behaviors that are appropriate – what should we eat or not eat, wear or not wear, do or not do. At least according to the Christian scriptures and early history, a man known as Jesus Christ lived, performed various miracles and shared lessons, was sentenced to death by Rome on a cross, and rose again on the third day, leaving His (and by proxy, God’s) new Kingdom on Earth....   [tags: Jesus, New Testament, Christianity, Christ]

- ”Abiding in Christ” is a beautiful book that concentrates on breaking down the words spoken from John in chapter fifteen. Throughout chapter fifteen there are three main points to be considered. The vines and the branches, Jesus’s love, and the hate that he knew was coming. “Abiding in Christ” gives us Christians what they need, showing us how to abide in Christ (John 15:1-8) and abide in Christ’s love (John 15:9-25).

The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ

- "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." This verse - John 3:16 - is perhaps the most important in the Bible. Jesus Christ was the son of God, but he was also the son of man. Jesus had a human mother, Mary (see Luke 1:30-31 for example), but his father was God (see John 3:18 for example). Jesus was human, not God.

Jesus Christ Would Support the Death Penalty

- Capital punishment, as ordained by God, is the only way to reduce crime in a long-lasting form. Although there are many who would refute this claim, the Bible holds its ground when it comes to the issue of capital punishment. The Bible has stood for, and will continue to stand for, capital punishment. Since God was the one who first initiated capital punishment, we should look to His Word to find the origin of it. Capital punishment was instituted when God told Adam and Eve “ the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Genesis 9:6 also references capital punishment by stating, “Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed.” Exodus 21:12 echoes this saying with...   [tags: Jesus Christ and the Death Penalty]
