What I believe

I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  I believe that He came to earth in the form of a human being to fulfill the prophesy of the Old Testament.  I believe that He was crucified, put into a tomb, and that on the third day, the tomb was empty.

Why do I believe this? 

The Bible is the most historically accurate book in publication today.  The Bible has stood the test of time, persecution and it still stands. 

The teachings of the Bible are of love and acceptance.  The teachings of Christ are inclusive, not exclusive. 

I have seen lives transformed by the love of Christ.  I have seen cities changed by the love of Christ.

    I am not perfect, by any stretch of the imagination.  I am not a model Christian.  Fortunately for me, and for you, perfection is not what God demands.  What he wants is humility–for us to recognize that, without Him, we are nothing. 

    I am not a religious zealot.  I love Jesus.  I love people.  All people.

      Love the salt explanation. I, too, have a blog – “glimpsesofgloryandgrace.com” and I was reading the account of salt losing it’s flavor. When I googled that your blog came up. Blessings Sister in Christ.

      Would you mind sharing your definition of the love you mentioned in your statement of what you believe?

    4. Just read your post concerning salt losing its saltiness. Powerful insight on the subject. I’m teaching a series in my church concerning Community Fusion: Where Church Meets Community. Your insight on salt & its power to season, preserve & disinfect shows us, as Christians, what we’re ordained to be in the earth. Thanks again for your contribution to my research!
