To Jeffrey: You can be a heretic if you choose to
Submitted by Richard Lion heart (United States), Feb 28, 2006 at 16:21Dear J,
I see your wish is to persist in the belief of denying Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior. I feel sorry for you. I true believer in Jesus will never try to reconcile light with darkness, or truth with falsehood.
You are asking Christians to deny the Sonship and divinity of Jesus in the hope of having better relations with muslims. You are asking Christians to believe the pedophile Muhammad was a true prophet. Christians would never commit such heretical acts Jeffrey. You might choose to go down that path but know that the wrath of God will follow you. Jesus Christ is the Light of the world and those who believe in his Grace and follow him do not walk in darkness.
"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." (John 8:12)
Christians worship Jesus because He is God.
"[U]nto the Son he saith...Thou, LORD, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands." Hebrews 1:10
Col. 1:16-17, "For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together."
Jesus was worshiped in the Bible and He never rebuked people for doing that.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
Muslims are the ones who need to wake up and receive the Salvation of Jesus Christ. Jesus came to the world to redeem the world. Muslim worship a moon god called Al-illah. The same moon god the ancient Arabs use to worhip. The Koran is not a Holy book. Anything that denies Jesus is the Son of God and savior of the world is not Holy. ..
