A child-like faith

In Jesus alone Is the essence of true believers (Luke 18:15-17)

Has this question entered your mind?


Was Jesus Christ a man who fabricated a story? Or Did his disciples just blow his story out of proportion and made him equal to God?

Did some politician invent Jesus to unify Rome?

Why ask this kind of question?


Higgs Boson particle Ancient Confession Found: 'We Invented Jesus Christ Biblical scholars will be appearing at the 'Covert Messiah' Conference at Conway Hall in London on the 19th of October to present this controversial discovery to the British public.

Joseph Atwill's book Caesar's Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus was published by Ulysses Press in 2006, becoming a best-selling work of religious history in the US in 2007.

If Jesus was fabricated, why did people prefer death over denying him?
Who dies for Zeus, Diana, Superman, Santa Claus?
Other religions lead people to death for the sake of domination, revenge, oppression, reward

A fabrication can not lead millions of people to allow themselves to be abused, to suffer, and die
Followers of Christ die (Heb 11:36-38)

If he was fabricated, how can he fulfil a lot of prophecies


O.T. prophesied 500 years before
Virgin birth in Bethlehem, in line of David Baby massacre happens, he will be safe in Egypt Forerunner before he appears, he will be rejected His betrayal, suffering, death, burial

How can Christ predict his own resurrection and how long he will stay dead? And how can Christ prophesy things which come true 2000 years after (Matt. 24:24, 37)?

If he was fabricated, why can no one disprove His words


In spite of technology, Dan Brown, of Da Vinci code was easily debunked in his lifetime In spite of many misleading scholars, the scriptures and translation we have are still the pure word of God They tried to discredit the contents but they were proven false
(pool of Siloam- 2004, Pilate - 1961, Genesis account)

If he was fabricated, why do people who sit down to disprove him end up believing him?
Testimony of the Evangelists by Simon Greenleaf (1783-1853)

Greenleaf, one of the principle founders of the Harvard Law School, originally set out to disprove the biblical testimony concerning the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He was certain that a careful examination of the internal witness of the Gospels would dispel all the myths at the heart of Christianity. But this legal scholar came to the conclusion that the witnesses were reliable, and that the resurrection did in fact happen.

Yet Christ do not want us to


1. 2. 3. 4. 5. trust in emotions (Eph. 4:14) trust in archaeology (I Tim. 6:20) trust in human history (2 Pet. 1:16) trust in the rule of majority (I Cor. 1:26) trust in princes (Ps. 146:3) much less actors or politicians

Dont trust Christ because Pacquiao, or Piolo, or Greenleaf trusted Him

What does Christ want?


Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. (Luke 18:15-17)

What the text is saying


Whosoever shall receive the Kingdom of God as a little child shall enter therein In order for Men to enter the Kingdom of God, they must receive it as a little child

You can not receive the Kingdom of God if you think like a grown man
Because as grown men and women, we 1. Trust in what we see 2. trust in emotions 3. trust in archaeology and science 4. trust in human history and education 5. trust in the rule of majority 6. trust in princes, politicians 7. Trust in famous actors

Problems
As a little child, you were always the object of jokes and people mislead you just to have fun. How can grown men think like a little child? Is Christ asking you to suspend all your learning, all your training, all your objections, all your logic, all the warning signs that this could be an elaborate hoax, all suspicions, and just receive the Kingdom of God as a little child?

The answer is no!


Christ is saying, no holds barred TRUST IN HIM should come first; and then you can use all your learning, all your training, all your objections, all your logic, all your knowledge of debunking, all suspicions, and you will see that the Kingdom of God is still true. Christ is saying you can not use research to find the Kingdom of God

Christ is saying you must not wait until you have satisfied all logic and scientific findings before you receive the Kingdom of God

An example of someone who had a child like faith in Christ

Conclusion
Have you received the Kingdom of God? Is Christ in you?

Has He given you everlasting life?


Has He saved you from your sins? LORD THANK YOU FOR THE CHILD LIKE FAITH
