Pick and Chose YOUR Jesus? What is this all about?
There is a common belief, an assumption, that every person who claims to believe in Jesus, believes in the same person. This seems like a legitimate assumption, on the surface, but we need to consider what the Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthians… II Corinthians 11:4: For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. —Luke 4:22
The Pharisees and chief priest sent officers to take Jesus (John 7:32). When the officers returned empty handed, they were asked, “Why have ye not brought him?” The officers could only say, “Never man spake like this man” (John 7:45-46).
So true. No one ever spoke or said things that Jesus said. Many of His statements go completely contrary to the philosophies of this world. Consider these ten amazing statements made by the Lord Jesus Christ. 1. Matthew 19:26 "With men this is impossible but with God all things are possible."
