What Christadelphians teach

What Do Christadelphians Believe & Teach?

We believe that the Bible is God’s only revealed message to mankind, given to bring responsive individuals to a loving obedience to God and His ways, and to give man hope through the precious promises God has made.

The canonical Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke &...

The Bible is our only authority and we believe it should be read prayerfully and with reverence at all time. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Romans 16:25-26; John 17:17)

Certain key teachings stand out. We invite you to thoughtfully consider these teachings with your Bible in hand.

• We believe that the Bible is the Book of Books and the Word of God.: Bible basic intro

Bible word of God inspired and infallible

God:There is only one eternal, immortal God. Jesus Christ is His only begotten Son, and the Holy Spirit is His Power. (Isaia 45:5; Luke 24:49; Ephesians 4:6; 1 Timothy 1:17)

• God is the All mighty, the highest.: God of gods

• And there is only one God to whom we may direct ourselves.: Only one god

• Him being our Father is just one of the many attributes he has.: Attributes to god

• God is a real, physical and personal being.: Sayings around God

• The Trinity is not found in the Bible but is something from humans.: The trinity – the truth

• There are not three in one, but there is only One.: God is one

Man: Man is mortal and a sinner before God. His whole being is prone to sin, and the punishment for sin is death- real death, the end of all life. (Job 4:17; Psalms 146:4; Ecclesiastic 9:1-6; Jeremia 17:9; Mark 7:21-23; Romans 3:23, 6:23)

• Dead and after: Dead and after

• We are bounded to our human nature: Human nature

• There is no burning place waiting for us when we die. Our dead is already the penalty for sin. We do not need a second punishment.: Sheol or the grave

Hellfire

Jesus: In His love, God sent the man Jesus into the world to save men from their sins. Those who believe in him will not perish, but have eternal life. (Matthew 1:21; John 3:16)

• Accepting Jesus hold also in that we recognise who Jesus is and what he has done for us.:Reasons that Jesus was and is not God

• How can we love and serve God if we do not know Him, and His son, Jesus Christ?: Jesus

• Jesus is the mediator given by God.: One mediator

• The only hope of life after death is the resurrection of the body and everlasting life in God’s Kingdom on Earth. (Ephesians 1:18, 4:4-6; Jeremia 29:11-14; Romans 8:23-39)

• The future of the righteous: Destination of righteous

• Destination of the earth: Destination of the earth

Sacrifice of Christ: Though he committed no sin, it was necessary for Jesus to die to show the righteousness of God and to redeem those who receive this sacrifice by faith. God raised him from the dead, gave him immortality, granted him all authority on earth and in heaven, and set him as mediator in heaven between God and man. (Acts 2:23-36; Romans 3:21-26; Ephesians1:19-23; 1Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 4:14-16)

• his blood is shed for our sins; to cover our iniquities; to bring us back to the Father.: The true vine

• Jesus was put on a wooden stake for our sins.: Crucifixion for suffering

Return of Christ: Jesus will return to the earth soon. He will then raise many of the dead, judge them with the living, and give his faithful followers everlasting life in God’s Kingdom. (Daniel 12:1-2; Matthew 25:31-34; Luke 21:20-31: John 5:28-29: 2 Timothy 4:1; Revelation 22:12)

Kingdom of God: The Kingdom of God will be established on earth with Jesus as King. His capital will be Jerusalem, his dominion will be worldwide, and his government will bring righteousness and peace without end. (Luke 4:43; Matthew 4:23, 6:9-10; Jeremia 3:17)

The Promises: The Gospel is inseparable from the promises which God made to Abraham and David in the Old Testament times. These promises find their fulfillment in Jesus Christ. (Genesis 13:14-17, 22:15-18; Galatians 3:6-9, 26-29)

• With the years God has given several promises and He has provided us with means to alter.: Biblepower to change

• Today we have to encounter much suffering, but this must not be. We can look up to a better future.: God’s promises to us in our suffering

• The true hope of salvation in Jesus Christ, the hope of the gospel, is founded upon promises made by God in the Bible.: God’s promises

• What is the Hope of the Christian?: Hope in Christ

The Way of Salvation: The way to enter the Kingdom of God is by faith. This involves belief in His Word, the Bible, and obedience to its requirements that men and women confess their sins, repent, be baptized and follow Jesus faithfully. Ultimately, it is only by God’s grace through Jesus that we are saved, not by anything we do. (Mt 16:24-27; Mk 16:16; Jn 3:3-5; Acts 2:37; Ephesians2:4-5; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:14-17; Hebrews 11:6)

Love: God’s love for us is at the root of his whole plan. Love should also be a major part of our reaction to His message. (Matthew 22:34-40; John 3:16, 13:34; 1 Corinthians 13:4-13: 1 John 4:7-21) We should love others like Christ loves us.

• Relationships are more important than material wealth. Our live must be full of love for men, animal, nature and God.: Our relationship with God, Jesus and eachother

  1. I have checked carefully what you believe and teach. Unfortunately, you are denying Jesus Christ as God, you call Him a man, there is a lot of contradictions in your teaching and you are leading people astray. The Son of God cannot be just a man, it’s simple. Jesus Christ was crucified for claiming to be God, it is clear in the scripture and it is mentioned several times that Jesus Christ is God. He was with the Father always and came to this world to save sinners. Jesus Christ is one with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Human mind cannot comprehend it but it ddoes not mean that we can change the bible because of that. And yes, if any group of believers is changing the bible and making their own, it is a cult. Apostle John warned also about denying Christ as the Lord and God. Whoever denies this truth is in big troubles. Read the 1 letter of John, it is very clear there who Jesus Christ is and who is the one who denies it. You need to be born again and be led by the Holy Spirit to have understanding. It is very serious to change the bible and deny the deity of Christ. This is the main battle and this is what the devil wants.

    Warnings Against Denying the Son

    18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.

    20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.[e] 21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth. 22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

    Jesus was not and is not a mere human. Jesus Christ is the Lord of lords and King of kings, He is the Messiah, the Son of the Living God, God in the flesh who was born to save sinners from hell and eternal damnation.

    I hope, this will shake you and wake you up because this is the only truth revealed to His disciples and millions of people throughout generations, people who met Jesus Christ as God, including myself.

    1. Dear Juliet, thank you for reacting to our writings.

      We do believe what the Bible teaches and believe the words of God as well as the words of the man who was declared by God Himself to be the Son of God – and not God Himself having come to earth to fake His temptation and death.

      “21 Now it came to pass, when all the people were baptized, that, Jesus also having been baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form, as a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. 23 And Jesus himself, when he began to teach, was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the son of Heli,” (Lu 3:21-23 ASV)

      We also believe God, Who according to the Scriptures is not a man (whilst Jesus is a man of flesh and blood seen by many) does not tell lies. Him being not a liar lets us know that He is the Only One God Who is One all-knowing, omnipresent eternal Spirit Being, Who can not be seen by man and to Whom nobody compares.

      “ God is not a man, that he should lie, Neither the son of man, that he should repent: Hath he said, and will he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and will he not make it good?” (Nu 23:19 ASV)

      “ that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we may have a strong encouragement, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us:” (Heb 6:18 ASV)

      In case God knows everything and Jesus would be God then Jesus would have known when he would be coming back and when the end times would be. Though Jesus does tell it is not given to him to know such things, but”only God knows” he says.

      The Bible gives us instruction to look for God, something we did and still do and to take its Words seriously at heart, what we do. As such we do believe in the Only One True God Who is One and not two or three.

      “ Hear, O Israel: Jehovah our God is one Jehovah:” (De 6:4 ASV)

      “ Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (De 5:7 ASV)

      “ I am Jehovah, that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise unto graven images.” (Isa 42:8 ASV)

      “ And Jehovah shall be King over all the earth: in that day shall Jehovah be one, and his name one.” (Zec 14:9 ASV)

      “ Jesus answered, The first is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God, the Lord is one:” (Mr 12:29 ASV)

      “ yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we unto him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we through him.” (1Co 8:6 ASV)

      We know there are many who do not believe that God is one and who prefer telling others they should believe He is three. Though we prefer to follow the Bible its words and to trust the God of the Bible and not the god of the many theologians Christendom may be rich.

      “ For who is God, save Jehovah? And who is a rock, save our God?” (2Sa 22:32 ASV)

      “ Who is like unto Jehovah our God, That hath his seat on high,” (Ps 113:5 ASV)

      “ Trust ye in Jehovah for ever; for in {1 } Jehovah, even Jehovah, is an {2 } everlasting rock. {1) Heb Jah 2) Or a rock of ages } (Isa 26:4 ASV)

      “ The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but Jehovah will be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy {1 } glory. {1) Or beauty } (Isa 60:19 ASV)

      “ For I, Jehovah, change not; therefore ye, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.” (Mal 3:6 ASV)

      Jesus very well knew his position and knew also how he could do things and why.

      “ But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh even until now, and I work. For this cause therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only brake the sabbath, but also called God his own Father, making himself equal with God. Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner. For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and greater works than these will he show him, that ye may marvel. For as the Father raiseth the dead and giveth them life, even so the Son also giveth life to whom he will. For neither doth the Father judge any man, but he hath given all judgment unto the Son; that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father that sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgment, but hath passed out of death into life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself: and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man. Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment. I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. It is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. Ye have sent unto John, and he hath borne witness unto the truth. But the witness which I receive is not from man: howbeit I say these things, that ye may be saved. He was the lamp that burneth and shineth; and ye were willing to rejoice for a season in his light. But the witness which I have is greater than that of John; for the works which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.” (Joh 5:17-36 ASV)

      “ Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful. Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe. I will no more speak much with you, for the prince of the world cometh: and he hath nothing in me; but that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.” (Joh 14:27-31 ASV)

      “ Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I came forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me.” (Joh 8:42 ASV)

      Jesus himself reminds people Who is there to be recognized in the first place and to Whom we should pray. He did not pray to himself or did not ask himself why he left himself (?! how could he do that?!) (like you seem to believe.)

      “ but I say unto you, love your enemies, and pray for them that persecute you;” (Mt 5:44 ASV)

      “ After this manner therefore pray ye. Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.” (Mt 6:9 ASV)

      Jesus who told his disciples Who his and their heavenly Father is said clearly that his Father (God) is greater than him. (Joh 14:28) In case Jesus is God than Jesus and God should be equal, of the same hight and of the same capacities or having the same attributes, though from the gospels we see clearly the differences between the two.

      You also seem to ignore the many times God said who Jesus was as well the many times when Jesus said who he was and Who his Father was.

      “ But when they persecute you in this city, flee into the next: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone through the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.” (Mt 10:23 ASV)

      “ And she shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name JESUS; for it is he that shall save his people from their sins.” (Mt 1:21 ASV)

      It is not only a pity you do not want to believe God His Saying and declaring that Jesus is His only begotten beloved son. We only can hope you shall come to believe this and that Jesus is the chosen and sent one from God too. Perhaps a person can be a servant to himself or serve himself, but that is not exactly the selfish attribute wich belongs to the Most High. Jesus was here on earth to not only serve us but more importantly to serve God. He even went as far as putting his own will aside to do the wil of his heavenly father Who is also Christ his God. In case Jesus is God himself than he would always have done his own will. Jesus looked forward that not his will would be done but the Will of his heavenly Father, the God of Israel in who Jesus had also plased all his trust.

      “ Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so on earth.” (Mt 6:10 ASV)

      “ And he went forward a little, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass away from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.” (Mt 26:39 ASV)

      “ And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; remove this cup from me: howbeit not what I will, but what thou wilt.” (Mr 14:36 ASV)

      “ And again he went away, and prayed, saying the same words.” (Mr 14:39 ASV)

      “ saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.” (Lu 22:42 ASV)

      “ I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” (Joh 5:30 ASV)

      “ For I am come down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” (Joh 6:38 ASV)

      Clearly Jesus considers not having come down from himself but to be sent by Some One. (A fact you seem to ignore.) That One Who sent Jesus, by the baptism of Jesus as well as on other occasions declared who Jesus was/is.

      “ and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Mt 3:17 ASV)

      “ And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my Son, my chosen: hear ye him.” (Lu 9:35 ASV)

      “ While he was yet speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold, a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.” (Mt 17:5 ASV)

      “ and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form, as a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.” (Lu 3:22 ASV)

      In case Jesus is God he not only would not have been sent, but than he would already have the Spirit of God (God’s Power) in him froom the onset of the earth and even before that, because God is eternal [not having a beginning or birth and not having an end or death — two things Jesus had or when Jesus is god Who cannot die (like you must not seem to think about)]. When Jesus is God everything would already belong to him and he had nothing to receive from Someone Else. From your reply we understand either you believe not that Jesus was sent by God, or you do not understand what such a sending means.
      We believe that Jesus came forth from the Father, like the Bible tells us, and is not an incarnation of God Who would then have fooled us by faking many things and worst of all by having us waited such a long time before doing such acting, with not making an end to mankind’s suffering straight at once after the fall. (Please also do not forget that we, fallible and mortal men, are still suffering.)

      “ Behold, my servant whom I have chosen; My beloved in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my Spirit upon him, And he shall declare judgment to the Gentiles.” (Mt 12:18 ASV)

      “ For he received from God the Father honor and glory, when there was borne such a voice to him by the Majestic Glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased:” (2Pe 1:17 ASV)

      “ Jesus therefore said to them again, Peace be unto you: as the Father hath sent me, even so send I you.” (Joh 20:21 ASV)

      “ But the witness which I have is greater than that of John; for the works which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.” (Joh 5:36 ASV)

      “ but when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,” (Ga 4:4 ASV)

      “ and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Mt 3:17 ASV)

      “ Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I came forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me.” (Joh 8:42 ASV)

      “ and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man.” (Joh 5:27 ASV)

      “ All things have been delivered unto me of my Father: and no one knoweth the Son, save the Father; neither doth any know the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him.” (Mt 11:27 ASV)

      “ far above all rule, and authority, and power, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:” (Eph 1:21 ASV)

      “ Wherefore also God highly exalted him, and gave unto him the name which is above every name;” (Php 2:9 ASV)

      Please let you be reminded also by Jesus his saying the the Elohim Hashem Jehovah is the God Who is One (and not two or three – as many so called Christians beleive)

      “ Jesus answered, The first is, {1 } Hear, O Israel; {2 } The Lord our God, the Lord is one: {1) De 6:4 ff 2) Or The Lord is our God; the Lord is one } (Mr 12:29 ASV)

      “ And it had been revealed unto him by the Holy Spirit, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.” (Lu 2:26 ASV)

      “ And he said, Thou canst not see my face; for man shall not see me and live.” (Ex 33:20 ASV)

      “ He was not the light, but came that he might bear witness of the light.” (Joh 1:8 ASV)

      “ See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye behold me having.” (Lu 24:39 ASV)

      “ {1 } God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth. {1) Or God is spirit } (Joh 4:24 ASV)

      “ Now the Lord is the Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2Co 3:17 ASV)

      “ For David ascended not into the heavens: but he saith himself, {1 } The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, {1) Ps 110:1 } (Ac 2:34 ASV)

      “ That they may know that {1 } thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, Art the Most High over all the earth. {1) Or thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art etc } (Ps 83:18 ASV)

      “ For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; or whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.” (Ro 14:8 ASV)

      You give us a

      Warnings Against Denying the Son

      But we do have the impression you are more denying the son of God, who is next to being a son of man also the son of Adam, the son of David, the son of Miriam (Mary/Maria), all things you seem not to believe, because you are convinced that Jesus is God, and when he would be God he cannot have a mother. Though for that fact you might say ordinary people cannot understand such things; Let us remind you that God is a God of order and clarity. It is never the intention of God to bring confusion or to mislead people. Everything what God says is upright and honest, to be taken at heart, be it guidance or warning. The Bible is presented to mankind by God in clear language, not made difficult so that all people wanting to hear His Word should have to go to university to come to understand His Word.

      We should know that God is an Almighty Spirit Being, not seen by man (see above – a fact you also seem to ignore).

      “ And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, Jehovah appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be thou perfect.” (Ge 17:1 ASV)

      “ And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins;” (Ge 35:11 ASV)

      Jesus, not almighty and not all-knowing and not being able to be everywhere, is declared by God not only to be His sent one. Jesus is also an anointed of God, like Samuel, Solomon, Isaiah, Jesus and his disciples were.

      “ Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of Jehovah came mightily upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.” (1Sa 16:13 ASV)

      “ Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated wickedness: Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee With the oil of gladness above thy fellows.” (Ps 45:7 ASV)

      “ The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is upon me; because Jehovah hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;” (Isa 61:1 ASV)

      “ Now he that establisheth us with you in Christ, and anointed us, is God;” (2Co 1:21 ASV)

      We recogninze Christ as the sent one from God and consider the most important anointed one of God, who we accept as the Christ or Messiah and our saviour.

      “ And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Mt 16:16 ASV)

      “ and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Php 2:11 ASV)

      “ because if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved:” (Ro 10:9 ASV)

      “ Let all the house of Israel therefore know assuredly, that God hath made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom ye crucified.” (Ac 2:36 ASV)

      A saviour raised up by the Most High God Who is the master of salvation and the heavenly Father of us and of Christ. It is God Who gave His only begotten beloved son to the world and accepted his sacrificial offering, so that with the sprinkling of Jesus’ blood we are allowed to be witewhashed. Jesus by putting his own will aside gave a proof to mankind that a man is able to follow the ordinances of God and to live according the Will of God. By doing so God accepted his ransom offer and made Jesus higher than angels and took im up into heaven to become a high priest for God and a mediator between the Seatowner and man.

      “ Salvation belongeth unto Jehovah: Thy blessing be upon thy people. [[Selah” (Ps 3:8 ASV)

      “ And Jonathan said to the young man that bare his armor, Come, and let us go over unto the garrison of these uncircumcised: it may be that Jehovah will work for us; for there is no restraint to Jehovah to save by many or by few.” (1Sa 14:6 ASV)

      “ and that all this assembly may know that Jehovah saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is Jehovah’s, and he will give you into our hand.” (1Sa 17:47 ASV)

      “ Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, marching in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.” (Isa 63:1 ASV)

      “ And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us In the house of his servant David (As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets that have been from of old), Salvation from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; To show mercy towards, our fathers, And to remember his holy covenant; The oath which he spake unto Abraham our father, To grant unto us that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies Should serve him without fear, In holiness and righteousness before him all our days. Yea and thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Most High: For thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to make ready his ways; To give knowledge of salvation unto his people In the remission of their sins, Because of the tender mercy of our God, Whereby the dayspring from on high shall visit us, To shine upon them that sit in darkness and the shadow of death; To guide our feet into the way of peace. And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel.” (Lu 1:69-80 ASV)

      “ And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends by means of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when it shall fail, they may receive you into the eternal tabernacles.” (Lu 16:9 ASV)

      “ For the Son of man came to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Lu 19:10 ASV)

      “ which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and made him to sit at his right hand in the heavenly places,” (Eph 1:20 ASV)

      “ If then ye were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God.” (Col 3:1 ASV)

      “ who being the effulgence of his glory, and the very image of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had made purification of sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;” (Heb 1:3 ASV)

      “ But of which of the angels hath he said at any time, Sit thou on my right hand, Till I make thine enemies the footstool of thy feet?” (Heb 1:13 ASV)

      “ Now in the things which we are saying the chief point is this: We have such a high priest, who sat down on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,” (Heb 8:1 ASV)

      “ but he, when he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;” (Heb 10:12 ASV)

      Dear Juliet, hopefully one day you shall come to see that we are not so wrong in following all that what is written in black and white in the set aparart (or holy) Scriptures. You should know that we trust God and hope that He alwasy shall guide us by the Word’s of Him we find in the bible, which we consider the Word of God inspired and infallible.

      The same as we have our eyes on the sent one from God, we do hope that when you keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in, you shall be able to see the Biblical Truth. therefore may we advice you to study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed — that exhilarating finish in and with God — he could put up with anything along the way: his temptation, bullying, shame, and even his impalement. We do hope you shall be able to live with the same hope we have, namely that Jesus put his own will aside to do God’s Will and to be there for us, giving his whole body as a sacrificial offering and that God accepted this ransom payment for the sins of all, so that the gift of grace of Salvation may also come to you. Hopefully you shall come to see that this son of man is the son of God who was made higher and taken to sit in the place of honor, right alongside God. (Heb 12:2)

      We as ransomed of God should be thankful for what Christ did but also worship the same God he worshipped, namely that one God and only one. We have put our faith in This god of Christ and in that one Priest-Mediator between God and us — Jesus. (1Ti 2:5)

      We do hope you might come to see that Jesus is the way to God and to salvation and that you shall come to see and understand that salvation is more than words. We have to learn how to apply it. You’ll need the bible Words throughout your life. As such we do hope that you sahll come to see, like we do, that God brings the Truth and that God’s Word is an indispensable safeguard. (Eph 6:17) Please find the right path, wich is not the wide road, but the narrow road or way to enter the small gate.

      “ I am the door; by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and go out, and shall find pasture.” (Joh 10:9 ASV)

      “ Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but {1 } by me. {1) Or through } (Joh 14:6 ASV)

      “ through whom also we have had our access {1 } by faith into this grace wherein we stand; and {2 } we {3 } rejoice in hope of the glory of God. {1) Some ancient authorities omit by faith 2) Or let us rejoice 3) Gr glory; Ro 5:11; Heb 3:6 } (Ro 5:2 ASV)

      “ for through him we both have our access in one Spirit unto the Father.” (Eph 2:18 ASV)

      “ by the way which he dedicated for us, a new and living way, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;” (Heb 10:20 ASV)

      “ And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:” (Eph 6:17 ASV)

      “ how shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation? which having at the first been spoken through the Lord, was confirmed unto us by them that heard;” (Heb 2:3 ASV)

      “ For it became him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the author of their salvation perfect through sufferings.” (Heb 2:10 ASV)

      “ and having been made perfect, he became unto all them that obey him the author of eternal salvation;” (Heb 5:9 ASV)

      “ and they cry with a great voice, saying, Salvation unto our God who sitteth on the throne, and unto the Lamb.” (Re 7:10 ASV)

      “ He findeth first his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messiah (which is, being interpreted, Christ).” (Joh 1:41 ASV)

      “ The woman saith unto him, I know that Messiah cometh (he that is called Christ): when he is come, he will declare unto us all things.” (Joh 4:25 ASV)

      “ She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I have believed that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, even he that cometh into the world.” (Joh 11:27 ASV)

      Please come to see that Jesus is that Lamb of God who gave himself for our sins and by whom the grace of salvation can be ours.

      You write

      I hope, this will shake you and wake you up because this is the only truth revealed to His disciples and millions of people throughout generations, people who met Jesus Christ as God, including myself.

      but we have not be shaken by what you wrote, because we listen to the call of God and His Words, putting all our trust in those.

      You yourself say

      He is the Messiah, the Son of the Living God,

      but after that you make a disastruous fault, bringing something up which can nowhere be found in the Scriptures. Your saying

      God in the flesh who was born to save sinners from hell and eternal damnation.

      brings un unbiblical thought which was introduce long after Jesus and his disciples had died. It is also a thought which make no sense for giving us hope in the resurrection of Christ. Because when Jesus would be God and having told so many lies (because Jesus said God is greater than him and he could not do anything without his heavenly Father, but worse he saying he does not know so many things though God knows everything), we have no example that a man can rise out from the dead. The sacrifice of Christ is also nullified by your way of thinking (becaus God as an eternal Being can not die) and Jesus saying to look at the proof he is no spirit (though God is Spirit – he and God tells us in otherplaces), we never being able to do the Things of God, can not reserect ourselves and have than never seen or known about a real man being resurrected to stay alive for ever. (All the ones taken out of death by the prophet, like Isiah and Jesus did call some from the dead, all died later).

      We do hope the above given Bible quotes shall help you to receive more insight and to see how we, by believing in those sayings, might be more worthy to be followers of Jesus Christ than many others who call themselves Christian but do not worship the God of the Nazarene Jew Jeshua (Jesus Christ).

    2. Wear Juliet our answer might be long, but we do hope you shall take the time to read it, compare it with your Bible version, and shall consider thinking about all those sayings.

      Yours sincerely,
      Brethren in Christ, liberated by the son of God in whom we trust and to whom we consider ourselves brothers and sisters united with him and his heavenly Father.
