Thank you for posting this Jesse.The reason our view of Jesus is "made into our own image" or to "our making" is because we forget there is only ONE God.We've changed the character of the O.T. GOD who walked and talked with Adam and did everything He did through-out the O.T. - to a new God = Jesus.New and improved for some folks, when He was the same God Elohiem - the alpha & omega - the first and the last from Genesis on.Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, today and forever.I'd like to copy this over to the Who Is JESUS thread if you wouldn't mind. It goes with all the others on there.Unless our Christology is Correct, nothing built off it will be correct, not even our sanctification. (His Image).All praise to GOD our Saviour!Edit: not sure I'd post # 15 though.

Amen Kire.Is this 'by' Art ?
Is this 'by' Art ?
Thank you good brother. Blessings!
The founding fathers saw an ubroken continuum. They did not see a God of the Old Testament and a God of the New; they saw a God of Law, a God of Justuce, a God of Righteousness.
Excellent truth-focused post on The Real Jesus. Just a few questions/corrections/observations.
2. He never rejected anyone:
7. Never raised his voice:
14. Man of peace:
Yes this article does present only one side of the case. There is another side of coarse.I think the point was that there is another side, where as most people only present the fluffier side of it.Jesus is no doubt the prince of peace. But God is also a man of war. And Jesus didn't come to bring peace, but a sword.
David Ravenhill said, "There are 300 years of silence in between the Old Testament and the New Testament. It's during that time period that most Christians think that God became born again."
