Jesus, who is the central figure of Christianity, was born of a virgin, and proclaimed in
the New Testament as the Lamb, (or child) of God.
I am basing this book on that premise, since it is embedded in my mind that it is the one
and only truth, in spite of what other religions may believe. The thought that it isn't the
truth is nothing but hogwash in my mind, and I will continue to praise the name of Jesus
until I am called home, and no longer of this earth.
Christians come in all sizes, shapes, colors. We are either tall or short; skinny, pleasingly
plump...and onward; red, yellow, black, or white, and come from all corners of our earth.
We all may not have one thing in common, other than the fact that we love Jesus, and
bigger and better yet...He loves us! That doesn't make us better than other people...just
Christ was crucified and died for my sins, and yours. He died on what we observe as
Good Friday, and arose 3 days later, on what we celebrate as Easter.
The date of Jesus' birth and death, and His subsequent age at the time of His death has
been in the hands of scholars for hundreds of years, without any solid confirmation.
Since there were no records kept back then, they can only go on time lines in history,
and assume the rest. They all conclude that Jesus was over thirty, with many stating He
had to be in His forties when he was crucified. This also lends itself to discussion of how
long His ministry actually existed. Was it 31/2 years, or was it twelve years?
I honestly don't know what difference it makes, nor do I care about the logistics of it.
What I DO care about, is that Jesus is my Savior and Master. Enough said!
Which Way Do I Go?
Which path you decide to go in your life is totally up to you. The choice is yours, and
nobody elses. Many of us hope and pray that our children will follow the road to 2
salvation, where many others seem not to care one way or the other. It is very sad, but
often true. Haters beget haters, sinners beget sinners, and so on. This is, of course, not
always true, but in 87% of problem children in case studies, the child mimics their
parents when it comes to most things which include, violence, alcohol and drug
addiction, bigotry, smoking, and others too numerous to mention.
Does it not make sense then, that those 87% of children could instead learn obedience,
tolerance, truth, honesty, abstinence, and most of all love?
If we look at the ministries of Jesus, are we not taught those things mentioned above
all? Therefore...where would you like to place your child? Would you put them on the
road to ruin, and yes, hell? Or would you try to lead them by example to the truth and
salvation that only Jesus can offer?
The choice to me is quite obvious, and yet people who have the choices in this world are
not seeing the big picture here. I don't think they are trying to harm their children
intentionally...but come on....the news has been out for more than a few years, and
people still choose to ignore what is going on around them.
So...which path do you want to follow? I followed the road to salvation, and it is the
happiest and most settled I have ever been in my entire life.
“For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes
in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the
world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him”
John 3:16-17
Following Jesus
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever
follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12 NIV
Following Jesus is a very personal decision, and means different things to different
people. Some may decide to follow Jesus because of peer pressure, and because all of 3
their friends are doing it, and want to belong to the same group. Others do it because
they were raised to be a follower by their parents, and that is just what you are supposed
to do on Sunday morning is go to church.
Whatever the case may be, and whatever your circumstance, it is awesome that you have
decided to go to church. God will do the rest, and I say that from experience.
You see, I was not raised in a Christian home. My parents are good people, and both
raised to follow in Jesus' footsteps, but something went awry somewhere and they made
a decision that going to church was no longer needed for them, nor was it important for
their children to go.
When I reached high school, a few new friends of mine, who all were in the choir class
that I was in, went to the same church, and asked me if I'd like to go with them. I was
really stoked that they chose me to be part of the
