Jesus is …

Jesus is …

To some people, Jesus is a transgendered woman and progressive Democrat who went around demonstrating love, compassion, mercy, and justice. He fought against capitalism, institutional religiosity, the wealthy 99%, and traditional social values.

Others consider Him the one who gives them health and wealth for typing “Amen” and hitting the share button on Facebook. He meets all of their needs and wants if only they declare it to be so.

He is a work of art to be tattooed on the body. A baby clutching His even holier mother. A good luck charm. A swear-word. A buddy prayed to when nothing else works.

Jesus is a policeman, waiting for you to make a mistake so that He can condemn you to a life of eternal torment in the never-ending fires of Hell. There is even a counter for the number of people who have entered Hell. This Jesus hates everyone who fails to live a perfect life and obey every command in the Bible.

Jesus asked His disciples, Who do you say that I am? (Matthew 16:15). Peter answered, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God (Matthew 16:16).

Jesus is the Christ. He is the God of the Old Testament and everything promised in the term Messiah. He is the Son of the living God, the eternal One come in human flesh. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation (Colossians 1:15). He is the One described in the pages of the Bible, from the first page of Genesis to the last page of Revelation. To know Him, know His book!
