Do we who claim to be Christians, believers in, and followers of Jesus Christ really take the word of Jesus as truth, or do we engage in adding to the writings of the bible as it pleases our desires and needs for a volentary sacrafical lamb who loves us so much that he would die for our sins, although he, himself was sinless.
Mat 26:42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
Jhn 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
Jhn 14:27 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 afraid.
Jhn 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
Jhn 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
Jhn 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
Jhn 14:31 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.
As we see in Genisis 6 the story of the flood caused by God to destroy mankind.
Gen 6:17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.
Then we see in the following, that God regretted his own actions, and vowed never to do it again.
Gen 8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
As we see in John 1;29 John the baptist said ” the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” no mention of the sins of man.
Jhn 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
In the Old Testiment we learned that the one offering the sacrifice, was also the one who was asking forgiveness for a wrong they had committed, against another.
I have always wondered how God making the great sacrifice he did , could in any way forgive the sin man had committed against God.
I know heritic is resting on the tongue of many, and it will flow easily when I venture to write these next few words.
Could the sacrifice of his only son be a repentant request for all God’s children to forgive him for actions taken against those same children. And come home to that repentant father.?
Lets look at the following.
Jhn 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Jhn 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
