If Jesus Is…

jesus is

The answer

The solution to life’s problems

The Way

The  Truth

The Life

The one who makes life worth living

Redeemer

Deliverer

Savior

If Jesus is the giver of new life

If Jesus cleanses a person from sin

If Jesus gives his followers new desires

If Jesus gives his followers a new song

If Jesus fills the empty void in a person’s heart

If Jesus gives his followers everything they need pertaining to life and godliness

If Jesus heals

If Jesus sets the addict free

If Jesus cleanses the sinner from all unrighteousness

If Jesus really is who and what Christians say he is…

Why are their lives no different from mine; no different from most agnostics or atheists I know?

It seems the only difference between me and the Christian is what we do on Sunday between the hours of 10 AM and noon.

I am as moral and ethical, if not more so, than most Christians.

I live morally, ethically,  honestly and justly.

Yet, without Jesus.

If Jesus really is who and what Christians say he is…

Why are there so many Christian books written to deal with the messy, dysfunctional lives of the followers of Jesus?

I’m trying real hard to understand what benefit there is to following Jesus.

If I can live morally and ethically without Jesus, then why should I join a club that demands 10% of my income to be a member in good standing?

If Jesus is what you need I say good for you.

I hope you will say the same for people like me who have no need for Jesus.

Jesus may be the answer to your questions, but he is not the answer to mine.

    “Why are there so many Christian books written to deal with the messy, dysfunctional lives of the followers of Jesus?”
    Great question! I can hear their answer now:(In a whiny voice) “That’s because we’re not perfect but still a work in Progress”/”People still sin”, etc. etc. etc.

    As some witty unknown person said, “Sleep in Sundays, save 10%!” 🙂

    I really wish I could find who said that originally.

    The prayer warriors are closing in! Circle the wagons and load buckshot blasphemy into the pistols. Wait till they say, “God says” before you fill their ears with unpardonable truths!

    Every time I see a Jesus-is-the-answer bumper sticker, my first thought is “But Ma, my question was “what’s for lunch?””

    For a Jesus-saves bumper sticker when my husband’s in the car, we end up talking baseball. (For those who aren’t old enough or don’t know baseball, the connection is Jesús Alou.)
