The Jesus Problem

by Carolyn Hamlett




So…I’m a Christian….and you automatically decide that I'm not worth your time because in your mind I am an ignorant idiot.

Believe me, I understand. If someone had told me years ago that I would ever be where I am today, I would have laughed in their face and never listened to them again. I would have felt that they were too elemental to waste another moment with.

So…why would I expect you to be any different?

I don’t.

I just hope.

High level “initiates” are born into the organization and die in the organization. . One does not just leave the organization like leaving a job. Dissenters are silenced or exterminated.

However, there are some of us who have survived to tell…

Everyone I know of who has worked in “the organization” and has lived to tell are now Jesus Christ believing Christians. For very good reasons. (I’m not referring to organized religion. Actually, Jesus Christ is not religion. The Truth was high jacked many many years ago…)

I am sorry if that turns you off…

And…..

I am sorry if you allow your feelings about this…to slow you from hearing me out.

Remember…You are not your emotions.

"You have an emotional life, but you are not your emotions."

If you have a repulsion to the name of Jesus Christ, ask yourself why.  

Maybe you are the one being guided by your emotions. 

Think about it!

;-)  

Read about Jesus Christ yourself from the testimonies of those who knew him best. Those testimonies are the accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. 

A friend of mine made a very good point when he said, "What is there not to like about Jesus Christ?"

Read about Jesus Christ from the Bible. I am sure you will see that Jesus Christ was no spiritual neanderthal, nor are any of his true followers. 

Check out the book of John chapter 1 to see EXACTLY who Jesus Christ is. It was he who spoke the universe into existence. He IS the Word. 

Don't believe that is possible? By whose understanding...your limited finite brain? 

You can not "have the mind of Christ" without being in Christ...(Jesus Christ). The only way to be in Christ is to give yourself to Jesus Christ. That is the only way. I encourage you to read the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and get to know Jesus Christ for yourself.
