Growing discontent against church

People are angry against the church

There was once a disease called AIDS, still affecting many.  Many people contracted the disease by different ways which included blood transfusion.

There were rumors where many were saying that this was a punishment from God.  The reason for this allegations, was that this disease was mainly affecting individuals of promiscuous behavior, drug-addicts who shared needles and homosexuals.

Later on, doctors discovered that the disease was past from one individual to another by body fluids like semen and blood.

The true is that, it affected many people in the homosexual community mainly males.  Many of them die abandoned from their families and without their partners next to them. (more…)

Calling for revival

Calling for revival

Nowadays, we are observing the revival of many pagan religions.  Atheist are calling their experience of getting into atheism, awakening.  Does this mean anything to us as Christians?

This is the the time to proclaim the real Jesus.  The mystic and unreal stories without real based have no place in church any longer.

We need to understand once for all that the bible is real.  The bible is not a bunch of unrelated stories, but the word of God.

Many of us know this, but not everyone who is in church actually belief.  Now it’s the time when believing is turning into an absolute requirement. (more…)

The Atheist proclaim to experience freedom of religion as an awakening.

The true is that we all should be free of the religion that encourages ignorance.   We should be free of the religion where faith is based on dogmas that prohibit the search for explanations.

When we proclaim the true, there is no fear of being found.  There is nothing to hide.

Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, proclaimed the true and warn us against foolishness.

The conversion to Jesus Christ is the real awaking of our lives.   He make us to understand that the world is all about understanding God and it’s purpose for our lives.   This is what brings happiness, peace and joy.

We know the world is true because it has become reality to us.

Like that song “Amazing Grace”  “I was lost, now, I am found.  I was blind, now I see.”

As a Christian transformed by the word of God and his power, I can say from the bottom of my heart.

“The Lord is my Shepherd, nothing I shall want.”

“I live no more, but Jesus lives in me.  And whatsoever I live in the flesh, I live it by faith in The Son of God who gave himself for me.”

He keeps my soul alive.

Many times, true believe is a process.

We first start by following family traditions and trying to be nice good people.

This is because to our eyes, religion is simply a set of rules observed by nice people.  Therefore, if I am religious, I am a nice person.  Unfortunately, for many of us, this is not true.  None religious makes me a good person.  If anything, it could have the opposite effect.

Most of the time, a dramatic experience is necessary to bring us into the knowledge that we are incapable of being as nice as we believe we are.

Religion involves us into set of rules that if we conform to those rules, we may be called righteous.  The problem with that, is that righteousness is not about following rules.  It’s all about having a good heart.  In other words, is having a natural inclination to do good regardless of what we receive back.   If you analyze Jesus and his interaction with the pharisees, this was what he was meaning by being born again.

The path of righteousness is more like wake up, and know the true, stay alert, do not play fool.  Believe in God and the only way to understand the will of God is by getting to know what Jesus really mean every time he spoke.

The study of the gospels and following them, is the key to the true and the everlasting life that Jesus speaks about.

If Jesus was God, why did he pray to himself?
Jesus praying to The Father

Jesus Praying to Himself

Some people think that human intelligence will made them bible wizards. But the true is, that even when The Bible is targeting educated and non-educated people, the bible is not mean to be understood according to human knowledge.

1 Corinthians 2:13-14

“13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words. 14 The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

The first step to understand the scriptures, is to accept that you are a sinner. The second step, is to repent sincerely. Then, we need to recognize that all perfect wisdom and all perfect gifts are coming from God. We need to recognize that all men are liars, but God is truthful. We need to understand, that we know nothing, but God has all the answers.

Isaiah 29:11-14

“11 And the vision of all this has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed. When men give it to one who can read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot, for it is sealed.” 12 And when they give the book to one who cannot read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot read.” 13 And the Lord said: “Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment of men learned by rote; 14 therefore, behold, I will again, do marvelous things with this people, wonderful and marvelous; and the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the discernment of their discerning men shall be hid.”

God is Spirit and his word should be understood spiritually. The problem is that the fleshy man sees all

spiritual things as without meaning. The spirit is known by experience. It’s not a feeling. It’s knowledge. It’s faith.

Spiritual is what is true in our hearts. Sometimes, the spiritual is manifested in our emotions. The reason is that the emotions express what is deep in our hearts. When emotions overpass our reasoning, we can say, they are coming from the heart, or from the spirit. But you can be certain, they have a reason to be.

For example, I can say, this person has no reason to be mad at me. I am not happy with this person’s attitude, but I can’t feel upset no matter what. I just can’t. This can be called love or trust. This is what

stop us from feeling anger even when reasonable we should. It’s not

is coming not from our mind. This is coming from our hearts. It’s a spiritual feeling or probably not feeling, but perception. It’s stronger than our mind’s will.

So it’s God. He is true and we know him. We do not know him because of words, but because we experienced him.

In the passage above, God complains that this people honor him from the mouth and not from their hearts. They are like automate worshipers that are not really into what they are doing. They do it because someone told them to do so. It’s not from their own hearts. They do not mean what they are saying when they sing. They do not do good because their hearts drive them to do so. We can say, it’s from the flesh.

Some people misunderstand what comes from the flesh. They think that from the flesh mean sinful. But, it just means that it’s not from the spirit. It could be with good intention, but not truthful and not from the heart. And because of this, it does not last.

Then, is Jesus God or not?

“Jesus is praying to himself” is one of the many popular comments that men and women without spiritual understanding make. They have no clue of what is God and who is Jesus.

If Jesus is God, why Jesus prayed so much?

Understand once for all, that God is spirit. God is not a man, neither a son of man.

The bible explains very clear that Jesus was praying to the Father “God.” He said, that he was not The Father, That the Father was bigger than him. That he came from The Father.

The relationship between God and Jesus has been a theme of debate for centuries.

If God is spirit, he can never be just a man. But he can be in a man. God was in Jesus.

Jesus is Christ. Christ means the anointed. We recognized Jesus as The real Tabernacle of God. The only way for us to know God.

It may sound a little silly, but in moments of desperation or frustration, really works to call Jesus and tell him exactly how we feel.

I was in church for many years, and “knew a great deal about the bible.”  I remembered that my pastor told me once, that I was an elderly of the church to my surprise.  And even after that, at one point, I found myself struggling and I said in my heart, I need Jesus.

And I told him.  I said Lord, Jesus, I need you.  I need you to fix my life.  I need, you.

And I started surfing the web about Jesus.  I subscribed to newsgroups about Jesus.  And all I found were people denying God and cursing.  I started talking to them, exposing the gospel.  I started telling them about Jesus.  All the words were coming back to me.  And at the same time, those words were talking to me.

The whole bible started having a more especial meaning.  Every story in the bible was like brand new.  The stories that I heard since I was a child got a special power and sounded different.

Then, the greatest thing happened.  The Lord started working with me.   I never felt him so close.  My prayers were answered, I changed.  Everything changed.  I started seeing things from a different perspective.

So many things that I used to believe, I started seeing them as they were.  I realized that I was believing many lies.

I understood that The Lord truly love us and care about us.  That the blessing of God is always there if we just can see it. Also, I understood that I was blind, that I couldn’t see.  The Lord opened my spiritual eyes.  I also understood, that I was never as righteous as I thought.  But that The Lord could take me through all the way if I just trust him.

I learned that I would never be the same.  I started seeing things differently, feeling more compassion, caring more about others.  I got so sensitive, that I even started liking Opera.  I mean Christian Opera and old music.  I was living every feeling coming from the music.

When I read the news, I prayed in the spirit.  Every morning was a day for The Lord.
