Origin of the Christian community Chosen disciples The Nazarener Jew Jeshua ben Josef, who worshipped the God of Israel (Who is One), in the first century of the common era, chose some talmidim or direct disciples and got several followers.

When we scroll onto the net about Jesus and God we often encounter lots of name-Christians who use verses to reply to others with questions about the divinity of Jesus which not at all say that Jesus is God, but they either do not understand what those verses are saying. Or they deliberately bring a … Continue reading How adversaries of God twist the word of the Bible and want to tell about heir Jesus
At the beginning of our contemporary age a son of man was hailed, by some triumphantly praised as a king entering Jerusalem, by others regarded as a dangerous person undermining their power. About 2 000 years later it are still religious leaders who do not want people to come to know that Nazarene man or to accept him as the son of God and future King of this world.
Jesus told his disciples that he will return only once and that when he does, after a time of great tribulation, it will be visible to everyone and be followed by immediate and dire consequences for those unprepared and for those who were adversaries of God.
2000 years ago Jesus spoke about such teachers who think they are the only ones who can explain the Bible. Today people should be aware that it is the Scriptures itself that can explain everything and that it is Jeshua, Jesus Christ, whom we should follow as the most perfect teacher.
It is striking that there are a lot of people in the world who are opposed to those who worship Jehovah as their only true God.
The vast majority of those anti-Jehovah people come from extreme right-wing groups and fundamentalist or very conservative Christian groups.
Often a lot of people do not know to differentiate between Christendom, Christianity, religiosity and even limit religiousness to Christians, forgetting that there are many other religious groups who have all sorts of worship.
Christianity is a love affair. Each person calling himself or herself a Christian should live a life of service to God and Jesus, by serving each other, putting the needs of others before our needs, showing to others the love Jesus gave us.
Peter evidently did not view himself as the rock on which Jesus would build his congregation, since he wrote at 1Pe 2:4-8 that Jesus was the long-foretold “foundation cornerstone,” chosen by God himself. Similarly, the apostle Paul referred to Jesus as the “foundation” and “the spiritual rock.” (1Co 3:11; 10:4). For every Christian or follower of Christ their church or community should have Jesus as their cornerstone and not as such one or another hierarchical religious organisation.
In the history of Christendom we see many churches which started of as so called cults or so called heretic movements, though many years later they sometimes outgrew their original group and/or became one of the many main churches. Therefore one should be very careful by damning a group or calling ti a cult or sect, when there is not really anything what qualifies it to become called a sect or cult.
People can be irreligious, delusional or belonging to lovers of agnosticism, ignosticism, ietsism, scepticism, pantheism, atheism, strong or positive atheism, implicit atheism, and apatheism. After the rebellion of man God saw the world turning against Him but kept hoping in a good relationship with His creatures.
The majority of believers in Christendom follow more the doctrines of a church instead of following the doctrines of the Bible or the ones of a divine man, who was sent by God to make the Divine Creator better known and to explain how people could be able to get into the Kingdom of God. … Continue reading Following a Person or a Belief
The world has received the Word of God, assembled in the Book of books, the bible as the most important and only source of life and source of holiness or set apartness.
In the word there are many words going around, which makes us to decide which words we want to follow. There is the need to believe in the Maker of all things haven given His Word to mankind and considering it the truth. when the divine Maker is not a verity His word also can not be a reality and a truth. we look at the exclusive god between the many gods and how His word by coming from the Highest of all His Words should also be recognised as from the Highest and pure.
The Book of books consisting of 66 books by 40 authors over a period of several years is often put aside by people calling themselves Christian, giving much more preference to human teachings and doctrines instead following the infallible Word of God given to mankind with the Bible.
