Jesus Christ The Superstar: Questions To Ask If I Meet Him

Bible 4

One of the greatest Biblical men ever to step on this planet 2000 years ago was Jesus Christ. From the town of Nazareth in what is now called Israel, Jesus traveled about the region and gained a large followers.

His powers and claims to be the son of God, didn’t only gave him love, but hatred from an empire of deceitful enemies. After a few years, the religious leaders in Jerusalem falsely accused him of crimes and handed him over to the Roman authorities and he was executed.

His execution didn’t bring to the end of his doctrine. A short time later, his followers preached in the name of Jesus Christ, whom they said rose from the dead. More and more followers were added to this movement which has become the Christian church of today.

Jesus healed the sick, lame, the blind and cast away demons tormenting mankind. He thought how to love, to give and to forgive, but like many of his followers I don’t understand some of his teachings.

Jesus said “Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.” Luke 6: 28-29.

I understand Jesus wants peace and love among people. It’s therefore necessary to pray for our enemies and those that mistreat us. But how can the great teacher tell us to do these things when people continue to abuse and mistreat other people, taking their humbleness and submissiveness as weaknesses to dominate mankind?

Above all, the great teacher said “Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also.” What about if I collapse and never regain consciousness after giving him the other cheek? I love Jesus with all my heart. He knows it, but I am not going to give the other cheek to anyone who slaps me. I need to slap back in return before he kills me.

Christians all over the world believe in the second coming of Christ. No body knows when he is coming. He said “For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night.” Whether dead or alive when he comes, I believe I will meet him to explain these teachings I find them hard to follow or obey.

Keep On Writing Until The Bones Are Rotten

It’s unfortunate that many have already given up or quit writing, because the book which they thought could make them bestselling author, has totally disappointed them, terminating the desire to be a good author.

In a world of which thousands of books are published yearly and affected by the rapid decline of reading, many are struggling in the field of writing with shattered dreams.

What is making the situation worse, is the sick habit of some famous writers, that often used Social Media platforms to discredit other writers’ work, as a way to draw readers’ attention to their works or gain more recognition and fame.

Again some unknown and new writers that want their voice heard or recognition, resort to undermining other writer’s work on social platforms as well. I have read such distasteful comments about other writers over and over wondering: Why some people live with greed and selfishness, aiming to achieve whatever they are looking for?

As a matter of fact, if one is intelligent to write a book, that intelligence is enough to teach the person that “Success comes to people that wish others success. They should make research and find out: “Whoever digs a hole against someone will surely fall into that hole himself.”

As an aspiring writer, what pushed you into writing? What are the motives that triggered your desire into book publishing, money or fame? I’m interested in these questions, because if you’re an aspiring or new writer, entering into the field of publishing, with the desire of becoming a millionaire over night, then I’m sorry, you will end up disappointed and depressed.

This is the situation many aspiring writers are facing today. What many writers have failed to realise is that: Stepping into the field of book publishing as a new writer, is like a stranger making proposal to a woman he finds attractive. She doesn’t know you, she therefore needs more time to know your background and where you come from.

This investigation or proposal may last a month or years, depending on what kind the lady is. After her investigations, if she is satisfied, she will accept the man’s proposal and marry him. The same way it takes a short or very long time for readers to accept or reject your book as an author.

If you have this in mind, as a new writer, before entering the field of book publishing, you will always be happy, easy and relaxed, no matter how poor or fast your books are moving. There shouldn’t be a competition in book publishing. If your book doesn’t suit this generation, another generation will accept it. The reason many writers become famous years after death.

There is a time for everything. A time to sow and to harvest, sickness and healthiness. Thus; there will be a time the underestimated shall be estimated. Let this article encourage you, if you have already given up or decided to do so. Even though, writing is considered to be one of the most dangerous professions, let the writing continue unabated until the bones are rotten.

Internet Frauds: An Attempt To Steal In The Name Of God.

Fraud

Internet fraudsters will do everything for people they target to believe them. It’s unfortunate that some of the letters with the intention to defraud, are written in the name of God, hoping people would be moved or touched with compassion to respond. Below is example of a scam letter with intention to defraud or enter into your financial account.
