How Does the Kindness of God Affect You?

If you’ve heard anything at all about Jesus Christ, you know that He is kind.  More than that, He is the kindness of God…personified. 

He healed the sick, raised the dead, fed the hungry, and gave His life in the service of others – even others who did not love Him in return.

How does His life affect you?  Does it lead you to humble repentance?  It should!  He did not live this way so as to impress us and leave us living in our own self-centered worlds.  He lived this way so that we might break free from our self-absorbed ways. 

Turn to God.  Live for Him and not for yourself.  Imitate the way He lived.  Lay down your life for others. 

This is the way that the kindness of God should affect you.  It should lead you to repent of your sins.

          1. Here’s why:
            Book of the Millennium !
            Prof. MacDonald cracks the source Mark used to synthesize Jesus “biography” in his book The Homeric Epics and the Gospel of Mark.

            1. Prof. MacDonald’s thesis ignores Mark’s repeatedly declared source for framing the life of Jesus of Nazareth: the Hebrew Scriptures.

              I think you’ve put your faith in the wrong book.

  1. That’s not a review/refutation. First you’ve got to read it.
    “Mark” “Biography” written by anonymous author at least 40 yrs after claimed events can’t give us a birthdate or crucifixion date (didn’t happen) but just happens to be able to quote conversations with his “apostles” (also fiction).
    Written so that “History” masked by the the chaos after a destroyed Jerusalem , he cleverly places this “Messiah” out in the country (Galilee)(no witnesses, how convenient) only quickly bringing him to the city for trial/martyr (no date of course)(you christians still can’t come up with a date you can agree on)(didn’t happen)

    1. That’s not a review/refutation. First you’ve got to read it.

      Too busy. If you want me to read it, give me a reason to read it. So far, everything you’ve said about it only speaks poorly of it.

      “Mark” “Biography” written by anonymous author…

      If it’s anonymous, why does everyone – including you – call it Mark?

      …at least 40 yrs after claimed events…

      An exaggeration. Of course, none of the gospels were written immediately after Jesus’ resurrection because the apostles were commanded to preach, not write. The writing apparently came only as their deaths approached when their preaching would have to cease.

      …can’t give us a birthdate or crucifixion date…

      Why does that matter? They didn’t write dates like we did. Besides, historians can ascertain the dates it because of the different rulers that were referenced in the texts.

      …(didn’t happen)…

      You weren’t there – how would you know?

      …but just happens to be able to quote conversations with his “apostles.”

      What’s so strange about adult associates of Jesus knowing more about their conversations with Him than they did His life before they knew Him?

      …(also fiction)….

      You seem so confident – do you think MacDonald knows more about Jesus than Mark did?

      Written so that “History” masked by the the chaos after a destroyed Jerusalem , he cleverly places this “Messiah” out in the country (Galilee)(no witnesses, how convenient) only quickly bringing him to the city for trial/martyr (no date of course)(you christians still can’t come up with a date you can agree on)(didn’t happen)

      If Mark was so clever, how were MacDonald and you so easily able to discern his ruse?

      I appeal to you, consider Jesus. He will not disappoint you!

  2. For someone in the Bible Belt, your heterodox soteriology is surprising.
    It speaks to the disintegration of the Christianity in the 21st century.
    Also your visits to Christ Myth blogs shows you continue to push the envelope.
    Keep up the good work and keep an open mind.

    1. As for the Bible Belt, professing allegiance to the word of God is not enough – one must truly want to believe it and obey it. Especially as it testifies about Jesus our Lord.

      As for Christianity, True Christianity will prevail. In the battle of Spiritual Christianity Versus Social Christianity, it is the former that will endure and the latter that is disintegrating.

      As for other blogs, I visit Christian blogs, atheist blogs, Christ Myth blogs, and others – all to testify to the preeminence of Jesus the Messiah. Contrary to the mythicists, He lived. Contrary to the atheists, He lives. Contrary to the Christians, He lives for all.
