The subject of Jesus provokes a variety of opinions. Some people love Him and others hate Him. Some may be indifferent and others may ridicule.
Q: Why talk about Jesus? Isn’t belief in Jesus superstitious and ignorant?
A: No. We all have a spiritual nature and need God.
Because we live in a scientific world it is easy to accept the things we can see.1 In such a world, some think belief in Jesus as the God/man who could die as the substitute for sinners and then rise from the dead2 seems mythical or irrelevant.
It’s true that we live in a scientific world. But we need to recognize that there is also a spiritual world (i.e. a world beyond the physical). There is more than our bodies and the air we breathe, more than dirt and concrete. There is more than food and drink, more than life and death. We are more than a body. We are body, soul and spirit.3 One day our bodies will die because death is the penalty for our sin and rebellion against God.4 But our spirits will continue forever—either with God in Heaven (everlasting life) or without Him in Hell (everlasting death). So our spiritual nature needs as much care as the physical—or more!5
Q: Of all the philosophies and religions of the world —why Jesus?
A: Jesus has done something for us that no one else could do.
Biblical Christianity’s premise is unique among all others. It is unique because it is God’s way—not man’s way.6
Man’s way puts the responsibility on us. We try to be good and do good. We hope if we can be good enough we will have a ‘good chance’ to make it to Heaven. This way of thinking is at the core of all other philosophies and religions. They’re all based on self improvement through the practice of their teachings. But an honest evaluation of our efforts will reveal we fail no matter how we try.7 We all fall short of God’s holiness.8
Jesus does for us what we cannot do for ourselves. Jesus came into this world, lived without sin and then died as our substitute.9 He rose from the dead, providing everlasting life and proving His power. He offers to forgive our sins and give us salvation as a gift.4
Jesus did all the work for us. Biblical Christianity is not following a religion—that would be our work. It is accepting God’s gift of forgiveness through faith in Jesus10 because He is our substitute. Faith means belief and trust. If you desire this relationship with God, tell Him you want Jesus as your Savior. He will hear you and save you.11
