This post is in response to my new friend A.N. who commented on my blog today. I chose to respond as a blog and you will understand why later.
Thank you A.N. to your inquiry as to why I believe Jesus is my God. First of all I believe Jesus is the only son of the living God. The Holy Bible declares He has been with God from the beginning and He was the Word that we read. The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, among humanity, by being born of a virgin.
Next A.N., you and I DO agree on much of the information you presented to me. Let me explain a misconception I think you may have of Christians. We who call ourselves Christians do not always agree with each other on our beliefs but one thing that we DO all agree on is that Jesus is the Son of God.
I have studied the information about Constantine and the Greek mythology that you mentioned. You wrote about the name Jesus, Zeus, and Ieasus, but you failed to mention that the son of the living God's Hebrew name is Yeshuah. When we as Christians call upon the name of Jesus, we are calling upon God's only son that was born to a Jewish virgin and his name is Yeshuah. We use Jesus as the English name for Yeshuah. We are not calling upon a Greek god nor do we picture a Greek god when we pray. We picture the Hebrew man Yeshuah.
By studying the Holy Bible, most Christians realize that Jesus (Yeshuah) was not born on December 25th, but that is the day we have set aside to worship the birth of God's only son. From things I have studied, he was probably conceived around that day and born around the Feast of Tabernacles in the fall. Regardless, we Christians realize we are not worshipping someone born to a Greek Goddess.
We know that the word 'Trinity' is not mentioned in the Bible. When God created us, He created us a body, a soul, and a spirit. One person with three (three comes from the word that trinity comes from) different attributes just as He is. He is the Father, the Son, and the Holy spirit. Yes, you and I agree, He is One. Just as I am one yet to those around me I am a wife, a mother, a daughter.
You wrote about Paul, but have you read about the Son of God appearing to him causing his conversion? If not, please read.
You must be seeking the truth A.N. because you know much about history and you mentioned different scriptures in the Holy Book that I read. I would like to challenge you to something as a friend. Would you pray this prayer: True and Living God, would you reveal yourself to me and show me the true way.
If you will pray this, I promise there will be many more praying along with you and let me know what is revealed to you my friend. Peace!!!!!!
