Elitism, Revisionism and the arrogance of the Elitists...
Elitism, Revisionism and the arrogance of the Elitists
The HRM claim that one can only come to know Messiah by way of His Hebrew name - Yehsua EXCLUSIVELY - and many argue (also very arrogantly) that if one dares to call Him JESUS, one is a full-on, unsaved heretic...
The KJVonly-ism CULTISTS claim that one can only come to know Jesus by way of reading His Word, the Bible, in the - KJV version EXCLUSIVELY - and many argue (also very arrogantly) that if one dares to read about Him in anything but a KJVonly Bible, one is a full-on, unsaved heretic...
The RCC claim that one can only come to know Jesus by way of attending a - Roman Catholic Church (which typically also incorporates a virtual deification of mary) EXCLUSIVELY - and many argue (also very arrogantly) that if one dares to attend any non-Romanist church, one is a full-on, unsaved heretic...
The Five Books of Torah, have remained unchanged for 3,500 years.
The 24 Books of TaNaKh (which comprise the same written content as the 39 Books of the Christian Old Testament) have remained unchanged for c. ~ 2,500 years.
The Canon for the Writings of TaNaKh were decided, settled and very well established before the Roman Catholic church was even a twinkling in some archbishop’s eye.
And as has been said before, - “the four gospels and the [New Testament] letters were compiled in the 4th century.” - In fact the NT writings were penned well before the close of the 1st century A.D. And they were written by those who knew Christ personally, encountered Him personally, and / or were under the direct supervision of those who knew Him personally!
“No Jesus, NO peace” and yet, “Know Jesus, KNOW peace”
How does one get to “know” Jesus? Simple, invite Him into your heart, as Jesus says: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” [Revelation 3:20 NIV] How can we be assured that this Jesus stuff means anything? Well because the Bible tells us so, as the Apostle Paul wrote:
“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” [Romans 10:9-10 NIV]
And for those of you who say to me, I can’t be bothered reading the Bible, “it’s confusing” or “it’s a waste of my time”, may I draw your attention to what the Bible says about wisdom: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” [Proverbs 9:10 NIV]
If nothing else, PLEASE read two chapters from the Bible – (don’t own one, sorry NO excuse, if you’re reading this, you can access this: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%203:16&version=NIV) John 3 and John 14!
John 3:16 says: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
And John 14:6 says: “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Well that’s it, that’s Da Bauz’s take on, Elitism, Revisionism and the arrogance of the Elitist, this 23rd day of December, 2015 © 2015, All Rights Reserved. wr (Da Bauz, Christian Zionist “creationist” too!)
