Lesson 3 - What about JESUS

Can truth be known? Where did man get the...

Where did man get the idea of morality? Why do people want to know the boundaries of what is permissible and right? Since these things are understood in all humanity, it stands that man has a built in understanding that right and wrong exist. Where did man get this understanding? Mankind has always exemplified the desire, and the need, to worship. Where did man get this need and desire to worship? Man did not originate these ideals, so they had to be placed in man. Since there is a being greater than man, and able to give man a just and righteous standard, would GOD be just and righteous if HE did not give man the ability to access and understand this standard. Man may realize that a standard of right and wrong exist, but man has to read, understand and apply this truth with personal action. Realization does not equate to man having every principle of truth built within him. We still have the responsibility to learn the truth through study. 

Psalm 34:8 - O taste and see that the Lord is good:
blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

1Timothy 2:4 - Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

Give The Bible a fair and just consideration. For a Book that has continued for millennium, stood the scrutiny of men, and been hated by those wicked men. It has endured endless criticism, and men have attempted to annihilate it, and burn it. Yet, this very Book, The Bible, is accurate Historically, Archaeologically, Geographically, Scientifically, Astronomically, Prophetically, Contextually, and has a unified message. Truth exist, it is The Bible, GOD's words!

Jn.6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

John 18:37 .............Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

Main points of the previous lesson 2 study:
-GOD's word can guide us safely through life, if we follow it.
-GOD wants us to know truth.
-GOD wants all people to be saved, JESUS came to save us from our own sins. (Have you ever committed sin, all of us have. None of us can pay for the forgiveness of our sins, only the Blood of JESUS can remove sins.)
-The Bible is accurate, and there are many examples to prove it.

If you have any questions, lets sit down together, and read The Bible. Email me at csakin67@gmail.com

"Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him." "But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?" "And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him." "And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:" "And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
