Many Christians think that God will always protect those who faithfully serve God from harm - that no true christian will be arrested or tortured by those who hate christ. If this were the case, there would be no Christian martyrs. The new testament clearly shows john the baptist as preparing the way for jesus christ. and he was beheaded on a whimsical dance of a girl and a drunk king who wanted to please his guests (Matthew 14)
some christians think that being A christian is synonymous with supporting jerusalem or having a positive view of jerusalem. some thus call themselves "christian zionists". ironically, this is contrary to how jesus viewed jerusalem. jesus christ had a very negative perception of jerusalem. in fact, jesus christ saw jerusalem as a city characterized by murder of god's representatives. In Luke 13:34, Jesus says, "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing." What is your perception of Jerusalem?
Some people think that the God of the old testament is violent and judgmental, whereas jesus christ of the new testament is a loving God. thus, they imply that jesus is not the god of the old testament. Do you have this perception? If you do, you are mistaken. the bible is clear in emphasizing that jesus christ as God the son (the second person in the holy trinity) is the same god of the old testament. as you remember, the holy trinity emphasizes that there is only one God, but that this god is in three persons: God the father, God the son, and God the holy spirit. the idea that jesus christ (called "the word") is god is found in john 1;1 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. in fact, the word (god the son) was from the very beginning and created the world. Thus, every act of god in the old testament was done by jesus christ as god the son ("the word") with god the father and god the holy spirit ("three in one").
After the US Supreme Court decision on Gay Marriage on June 26, 2015, many people (both christians and non-christians) are asking questions about gays and the Bible. one question that many people are asking is if jesus christ ever shared the gospel with homosexuals. The answer to this question is simple: no, jesus never shared the gospel with homosexuals. This is clear in the bible and in history.
Many people think that just going to church is good enough to be saved. But that is simply not true. A person can go to a church all her life and go to eternal damnation in hell. Even those who do amazing things using the name of jesus can go to hell. matthew 7:21-22 states: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’"
