The truth, as it always seems to be, is under the scrutiny of every critic that can find a place to voice their opinion. This is a common place thing, and has been going on for thousands of years, and looks to be in no sight of ending anytime soon. Nonetheless, the truth of Christianity has never wavered, despite the incessant bombardment of slander, hatred, and even, indifference to the call to man to change his sinful ways and to come unto God.
Why the attacks? Well, simply, the truth is easily vulnerable to people who cannot come to realize that they are sinners in need of change. It is easier, even safe, to ignore the standard God has instituted and just go about doing you own thing.
I find it amazing that Christianity is typically single out, despite the truth that God wants to love us. He tells us the truth: that we all live a life against him, and that he has provide a way to make things right, by allowing his own son to die for us–and this is err to some men?
Men and women who have a heart against Christianity have to look at themselves. Why do they want to reform it unless they find that their own way of living is singled out to be sinful? Why say the Bible is in error unless they can prove it by providing the precise book, chapter, and verse that’s wrong?
The fact is this: there’s nothing wrong with Christianity and it needs no reform. It is the human that is wrong; it is the human that needs reform.
Most testify to the statement of past failures of men within the body of Christ, notice I did not state the Church, men have wrong men, and if it can be said that if men have done deeds that were criminal within the realm of the Church, they were not Christians and they did not the deeds of Christ, but of their own lust and desires, yet that does not mean that the truth of the Gospel is void.
The truth of Christianity is this: to save the lost, convert the soul, and tell others about God love for them through Jesus Christ. We all must get off of this silly idea that Jesus had some good things to say and if we feel fit to carry them out, then maybe we will. He came to die for you; to save you from Hell, not to entertain your thoughts on how to improve society. He challenges the soul of humanity, He is God— you must accept this or reject it, but let’s not waste any precious time in debating whether he was a good teacher. Good teachers don’t raise the dead by speak the very word, Good teachers don’t forgive sins, and good teachers don’t live after being crucified three day prior unto hundreds of witnesses-only God does this, period!
Looking at the failures of men is not a viable excuse to treat Christianity as a means to morality, it goes beyond it: the redemption of the corrupt soul of men through the death of Jesus. God says not to look unto men for support, but to Him. Trusting men will leave you musing over past events that took place hundred of years ago that you can’t change. Don’t worry about what men do or have done, look to God—what he has done, what he is doing, and what he will do.
Looking at Christianity from your own point of view is err. The Gospel is not about traditions, its about God coming to man to save him from the sinful state place upon him by his own desire. Read the Bible, not other opinions of it, and if you read it already-read it again, there’s no harm in it.
Let the truth of Christianity, that can never die, be upon you heart. Amen.
