Jesus is the Son of God
Jesus is the Son of God.
Jesus is the Son of God.
Jesus Christ the Lord, born of a virgin, of the seed of David, as prophesized in Scripture, both Divine in God coming to earth to also take on fleshly, humanity. The God / man, Jesus Christ the Lord. The Son of God.
You take offense? You are insulted?
I with the utmost certainly proclaim Jesus is the Son of God and no person can see, or come to the Father, no person can attain eternal life, no person can find their spirit in heaven with God unless proclaiming Jesus is Lord, Jesus is the Son of God, Jesus is the only way — the Truth, the Light, and the Life.
I believe 100% without doubt in all of Scripture. I believe 100% with the utmost certainty that Jesus is the Son of God.
If you are offended? If this upsets you? Perhaps you ought to search within yourself while also searching the inerrant Word of God.
The word “Christian” is one of the most misused words in language worldwide today. in these times most of those identifying as “Christian” don’t appear to know what the true meaning of the word is, or what the Holy Bible instructs disciples of the Lord, Jesus Christ in behaviors, beliefs, practices and how to walk daily and nightly.
As for all this discussion, writing, acceptance there are myriad kinds of “Christians” there is only one kind — the TRUE, GENUINE, WHOLE BIBLE-BELIEVING AND OBEYING CHRISTIAN.
Anything else is something other than a “Christian.” Sadly, the vast majority in these times of false teachers, itching ears turned to myths and the lies the father of lies whispers in millions of ears, the tsunami of unsound doctrine as the so-called “Church” allows everything under the sun in appeasement and worldliness is NOT Christianity.
We ought never give thought to our being superior of our own, or of our righteousness done of our own, nor to look down upon any who do not believe as true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are to pray for all those blind, walking in darkness that they may have the power of the Spirit of God to work in them as that Spirit worked in us. As we were, are all great sinners, none better than another, all sinners have the opportunity for salvation in the faith and obedience to Jesus the Lord, the Son of God and belief and obedience to God, our Father and the whole inerrant Word of God.
Pray for all those walking blindly. Walking in darkness that they finally hear the voice of the Lord before it is too late and they end up spending their eternity alienated, isolated from God, Christ and the heavenly hosts in Paradise. For all who refuse to believe, all — no exceptions — refuse to believe Jesus as Lord and Saviour, Jesus as Son of God, and refuse to humble themselves, acknowledge their being a sinner in need of saving, confess their sins, repent of their sins and commit to submitting and obeying the Lord, Jesus Christ, the Son of God will spend that eternity in pain, suffering, isolation, darkness and all that our finite minds cannot even begin to comprehend in the depths of hell. For eternity. That’s a long, long, LONG time. Look it up if you don’t believe me.
Preach the Word
I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and encourage with every form of patient instruction.
For the time will come when men will not tolerate sound doctrine, but with itching ears they will gather around themselves teachers to suit their own desires. So they will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
2 Timothy 4:1-4 — English Standard Version
And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge says. And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
Luke 18:6-8 — English Standard Version
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2 Thessalonians 2:3 — King James Version
“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.”
Matthew 24:21 — King James Version
(See Daniel 11 — The kings of the south and the north in Biblical end times prophecy)
Forces from him shall appear and profane the temple and fortress, and shall take away the regular burnt offering. And they shall set up the abomination that makes desolate. He shall seduce with flattery those who violate the covenant, but the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action. And the wise among the people shall make many understand, though for some days they shall stumble by sword and flame, by captivity and plunder. When they stumble, they shall receive a little help. And many shall join themselves to them with flattery, and some of the wise shall stumble, so that they may be refined, purified, and made white, until the time of the end, for it still awaits the appointed time.
Daniel 11:31-35 — English Standard Version
And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream; he raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven and swore by him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time, and that when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to an end all these things would be finished.
Daniel 12:7 — English Standard Version

Christians, Stop Saying Jesus Is the Son of God. It Provokes Muslims
Modern-day Christians’ anxiousness to avoid offending Muslims could be the death of Christianity.
By Robert Spencer
Buried in the concluding paragraphs of a Christmas Eve Washington Times report about Muslims in Uganda forcing Christians to convert to Islam was the extraordinary revelation that in that country, Muslims now consider any public statement of the Christian Faith to be a calculated insult to Muslims, for which they can justifiably exact revenge. This is, or should be, sobering news for the comfortable Christians of the West who have made an idol out of “interfaith dialogue” and fastidiously avoid saying anything remotely critical about Islam, even as the Muslim persecution of Christians continues worldwide.
“In June,” the Times reported, “a group of Muslims attacked Christian preachers in eastern Uganda during a ‘crusade,’ where Christians publicly profess their faith and invite others to join. Muslims in the town accused the Christians of mocking Islam by publicly saying Jesus was the Son of God.”
In response, said Christian pastor Moses Saku, the Muslims became violent: “They became very angry and began throwing rocks at Christians, chanting ‘Allah akbar.’ Many Christians were injured during the incident.”
The Christians appealed to the Muslims to have respect for those of other faith; the Muslims responded with contempt. One Muslim, Abubakar Yusuf, declared: “We have now declared a jihad against them. We are not going to allow anybody to despise Islamic teachings at their church or crusade. We will seek revenge.”
How did the Christians “despise Islamic teachings”? By preaching aspects of Christianity, such as the divinity of Christ, that Islam denies. The Christians, knowing how delicate their situation was, would never have dreamed of actually saying something critical about Islam itself; but to the Muslims who heard them, just enunciating the tenets of their Christian faith was criticism enough. And they refused to stand for it.
A few years ago, when jihadis attacked AFDI’s Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Garland, Texas, some Christians castigated me for co-sponsoring and speaking at the event. They said that Pamela Geller and I, as co-organizers of the event, were being needlessly provocative, poking Muslims in the eye, goading them, etc.
These charitable and enlightened Christians said that Christians should instead be deferential to others’ religious sensibilities. At the time, I responded to these people by explaining that giving in to violent intimidation (our event was a response to the jihad murder of the Charlie Hebdo Muhammad cartoonists in Paris) would only encourage more violent intimidation, and that given the fact that Muslims frequently found even basic expressions of Christian faith to be “provocative,” they were effectively cutting the ground out from under themselves and their children, making it impossible for them to practice Christianity in the future.
These incidents in Uganda are proof that this was correct. In declaring jihad and stating that the Muslims were now on a quest for revenge, Abubakar Yusuf and the Muslims who agree with him are in effect saying that the public expression of the Christian Faith mocks Islam and despises Islamic teachings. Abubakar Yusuf’s announcement that the Muslims had “declared jihad” against the Christians and would “seek revenge” against them was tantamount to a declaration that the Christians must submit to the hegemony of the Muslims, not daring to practice their faith openly, but only in private, behind closed door, and at the sufferance of their Muslim overlords.
This is exactly the status that Islamic law prescribes for Christians in lands governed by Islamic law, and so it is clear that Abubakar Yusuf is no lone fanatic, but is enunciating what many Muslims in Uganda believe to be only right and proper.
The lesson is clear, and not just for Uganda. If the advice of the cosseted, suburban Western Christians who were excoriating me for the Garland event is to be heeded, Christians should make no public expression of their faith at all, and convert to Islam, so as to avoid mocking, provoking, and offending Muslims, and poking them in the eye.
And what it comes to it, that is most likely the exact thing that those Christians will do.
