What you won’t hear at church this weekend about the crucifixion of Christ

Durable Comments:

As we approach Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, hundreds of millions of Christians around the world will consider the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is unequivocally a good thing. The implications of this event are eternal, personal, and global all at the same time. But the lense through which most of us reflect on it has been carefully selected for us and there are powerful implications that most of us have never considered and which most of our churches don’t want us to consider.

Are you willing to look into the rest of the greatest story ever told?

John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute has done a marvelous job pulling together the historical facts and the historical similarities of Jesus’ crucifixion and modern America. This topic raises fascinating and disturbing questions about what it means to follow Jesus in America (and many other countries around…

Jesus Could Not Heal the Sick

Jesus Could Not Heal the Sick

February 6

“Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.”- (Acts 2:22).

In his book, When Heaven Invades Earth, Pastor Bill Johnson makes an insightful observation about Jesus.

“He could not heal the sick. Neither could He deliver the tormented from demons or raise the dead. To believe otherwise is to ignore what he said about Himself, and more importantly, to miss the purpose of His self-imposed restriction to live as a man.”

Jesus Christ said of Himself, “The Son can do nothing by himself; he can only do what he sees the Father doing” (John 5:19). In the Greek language that word nothing has a unique meaning – it means NOTHING, just like it does in English! He…

John 10:31-33 (Blasphemy)

Patricia Thomas:

Jesus, I worship You as God. You are my Lord, and I surrender my life to You. You are my Savior and I place my life in Your hands. Forgive me for the sins I have committed. I don’t deserve Your grace but I ask that You would give it anyways. Help me now to follow You. Help me to live in obedience to Your commands. Give me to courage to do so even to the point of death. You are God and I will not, I cannot deny this truth.

Blasphemy

Once again the people picked up stones to kill him. Jesus said, “At my Father’s direction I have done many good works.
For which one are you going to stone me?”
They replied, “We’re stoning you not for any good work, but for blasphemy!
You, a mere man, claim to be God.” (John 10:31-33)

Read: 2 Kings 20:20-21, 2 Chronicles 32:32-33, Isaiah 63:15 – 66:24

Relate: One of the big arguments atheists sometimes use and Muslims frequently use to deny the divinity of Jesus is the claim that Jesus never claimed to be God. The argument, which is even found in the Quran, states that Jesus never came right out, point blank, and said, “I am God” therefore He must not be God.

This argument is ridiculous on two grounds. First, it is simply not true. We see very clearly Jesus saying in John 8:58, “I tell you the truth…

How God Uses Pain

How God Uses Pain

February 4

“I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things” (Isa 45:7).

God will use pain in order to create a love relationship with His creation. This statement may challenge your theology. However, consider that God allowed Jesus to experience incredible pain in order to create an opportunity to have a relationship with His creation. Consider how Jesus created a relationship with Paul. He blinded him and used a crisis in his life in order to bring him into a relationship with him and use him for God’s purposes. Consider how God recruited Jonah for the mission He had for him.

This is not God’s first choice for His creation. Romans 2:4 reveals that God’s preference is to show mercy and kindness: “Or do you show contempt for the riches of His kindness, tolerance…
