Did Christianity “copy” other historic Virgin Birth stories from older cultures?

Someone posted the following in order to try and disprove belief in Jesus. What he said can trip up younger and less mature believers.

Is Loving and Forgiving Yourself Biblical?

There are moments when we all become someone else. Something other than what we are. It takes only a moment. But we spend the rest of our lives looking back at that moment in shame. It can happen in one instant, out of a lifetime of service, we can become our own worst instincts. I’ve […]

Choices & Consequences.   Do we teach our children these simple cosmic rules, then fail to model them ourselves?   I had a revelation years ago,while breaking crackers from a church stage (ie., presenting Jesus in the Passover), where God showed me that Matthew 6:15 (Cause) and 1 Corinthians 11:30 (Effect) are […]

What did Jesus really mean when He said, “Keep my commands?”

Why do people ASSUME Jesus meant the commandments of the Mosaic Law? Maybe when he said, “my commandments” (John 14:15), he literally meant what he said: the ones spoken by him as Messiah, in the flesh?

Why do Messianics Write G-D, instead of God?

The Messianic Movement and writing the word, G-D. Do we not realize that the only time our unbelieving Jewish religious brethren write the title in this form, G-D, it is done on physical objects like paper? There is no such mandate by them for electronic forms like on social media. So, feel free to write […]
