Was Jesus Really God? Part 3-Attacks On the Divinity of Jesus Christ

Truth in Palmyra

jesus is god

Like almost any doctrine considered to be central and core to traditional orthodox Christianity, the Doctrine of the Divinity of Jesus Christ has been under assault almost from the beginning of the New Testament church age. Yet, there is almost no Doctrine more tied to the core of true Christian faith than this one. Without it, there basically is no Christian faith as it has been traditionally known.

I had said we would discuss some of the more major assaults on this concept, and we will. Rather than me spending the next 20 years developing the ability to relay some of these thoughts and then representing them in some coherent form, my plan today is to briefly describe some of them and provide some links for further reading by readers.

One of the more prominent sources I use for this is the gotquestions.org website. It is simply a smorgasbord of…

He Is Risen

montague county moments

Some secular “experts” say it’s a myth that Christ was nailed to a cross , proclaiming he was merely tied there as Roman tradition mandated …some doubt that Christ was resurrected from the dead. Still others totally deny His deity..

That’s the beauty of being a Christian…it’s a choice….. based on grace through faith…not of works or scientific proof…lest any man should boast…

That simple fact discredits the most learned scientific scholars…leaving their conclusions totally irrelevant….they too have a choice to accept or reject God’s written word…

If Christ’s resurrection is a myth , all hope is lost.. Science can not provide salvation , or even a logical explanation as to why Christ would voluntarily agree to be crucified , remain in a lifeless tomb for three days, then arise to offer redemption for ALL who willfully follow Him….including even those who crucified Him..

Happy resurrection day for all who choose to believe… good…

The Local Church and Why It Matters

Truth in Palmyra

By: John MacArthur

From: Grace To You Blog

I love the church. It’s the center of my life and has been since childhood. My father was the pastor of a church when I was born, and I grew up in the church. It’s the place where I was led to the knowledge of God, where I learned about the Person and work of Christ, and where I gained the knowledge of saving and sanctifying truth. It’s where I learned how to pray, how to sing, how to worship, how to love, and how to serve. And it was in the church that I experienced the leading of the Spirit of God directing me to a life of ministry.

I met my wife in the church. We raised our children in the church, and now our grandchildren, too. It’s where I’ve made lifelong friends and partners in ministry. The church touches…

Faith — The Essence Of Christian Victory

“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, not height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39 (NASB)
Jesus is able to deliver. No outside force can add anything. All the trying, all the striving, all the enduring cannot add one thing. We overcome the world through faith in Jesus Christ. We overcome the flesh through faith in Jesus Christ. We overcome the devil through faith in Jesus Christ. “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” 1 John 5:4 (NASB)
Faith is the power that puts the devil to flight. Faith is the key that unlocks the door to victory. Faith is the essence of Christian victory. You will never be a successful, victorious, happy, fruit-bearing Christian until you recognize that God does not honor your effort to overcome, but your faith in Him to furnish victory through the power of the salvation purchased through the death and blood of Jesus Christ.

An Unfailing Blessing

All of our errors and failures that
we made in the course of the day
Are freely forgiven at nighttime
when we kneel down
and earnestly pray,
So seek the Lord in the morning
and never forget Him at night,
For prayer is an unfailing blessing
that makes every burden
seem light.
Helen Steiner Rice

The Secret Of Peace

The secret of peace is to give every care to God.

Was Jesus A Good Man?

“Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.'” John 8:58 (NASB)
If Jesus was not the Son of God, no preacher should ever call His name from the pulpit. If Jesus was not God in the flesh, no preacher should ever end a prayer in His name or even mention His name when praying to Almighty God. If He was not God — He was not good.
If Jesus was just a good man and not the God-Man, He had no authority to forgive sins. And if Jesus did not have the authority to forgive sins, I do not know where to recommend that you go for forgiveness.
There is no other who would dare claim the authority to forgive sins. If Jesus were not all He claimed to be, you must carry your load of sin all the days of your life and with it face a holy God at the end of life’s journey. The finite can never satisfy the infinite. Man cannot satisfy a holy God. Deity can be satisfied only by Deity. If Jesus were not divine He could never have satisfied the demands of Almighty God. It takes holiness to satisfy holiness.
“Good and upright is the LORD; therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in justice, and He teaches the humble His way. All the paths of the LORD are lovingkindness and truth to those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.” Psalm 25:8-10 (NASB)
