I also believe...

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: Why I Believe in Christ

Submitted by Fadi (Australia), Nov 14, 2006 at 13:02

My dear Christian brother:

I call you my brother for two reasons; the first is because you are, irrespective of your belief, and the second reason (which I find silly, forgive me), is because I don't know your gender (otherwise I'll call you my sister). Fadi is my real name; it's a very popular name with the Christian Lebanese. It means redeemer to the Christians and martyr to the Muslims.

There's a popular booklet written by a Lebanese Christian who calls himself "the servant of Fadi ", i.e. the servant of the redeemer (Jesus Christ).

Enough on that.

To answer your question on whether I believe Jesus to be the Messiah of whom the prophets such as Moses prophesied about, my answer is yes I do believe he was and will always be the Messiah.

My intention is to share my belief and knowledge of God with you. My intention is NOT to insult you or your belief and will accept nothing less in return. I'm not here to revert or convert you or anyone else for that matter. Guidance, I believe, comes from God alone. However, one has to seek and knock on the door for it to be open. So, would you like to start on the divinity of Jesus as the first point of our dialogue?

Let me know what you think brother. Until then, thank you again for taking the time to read my words and I'm looking forward to reading yours.

May God guide us all closer to the truth. Amen

Fadi.
