    Welcome:)
  2. Shouldn't we ask this question to all unbelievers instead of singling out the Orthodox Jews ? Why do people reject Jesus as their Savior? Question: "Why do people reject Jesus as their Savior?" Answer: The decision to accept or reject Jesus as Savior is the ultimate life decision. Why do many people choose to reject Jesus as Savior? There are perhaps as many different reasons for rejecting Christ as there are people who reject Him, but the following four reasons can serve as general categories: 1) Some people do not think they need a savior. These people consider themselves to be “basically good” and do not realize that they, like all people, are sinners who cannot come to God on their own terms. But Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Those who reject Christ will not be able to stand before God and successfully plead their own case on their own merits. 2) The fear of social rejection or persecution deters some people from receiving Christ as Savior. The unbelievers in John 12:42-43 would not confess Christ because they were more concerned with their status among their peers than doing God’s will. These were the Pharisees whose love of position and the esteem of others blinded them, “for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God.” 3) For some people, the things that the present world has to offer are more appealing than eternal things. We read the story of such a man in Matthew 19:16-23. This man was not willing to lose his earthly possessions in order to gain an eternal relationship with Jesus (see also 2 Corinthians 4:16-18). 4) Many people are simply resisting the Holy Spirit’s attempts to draw them to faith in Christ. Stephen, a leader in the early church, told those who were about to murder him, “You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit!” (Acts 7:51). The apostle Paul made a similar statement to a group of gospel rejecters in Acts 28:23-27. Whatever the reasons why people reject Jesus Christ, their rejection has disastrous eternal consequences. “There is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” than the name of Jesus (Acts 4:12), and those who reject Him, for whatever reason, face an eternity in the “outer darkness” of hell where there will be “weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 25:30).

    Who recognized Jesus as the Messiah when he was presented at the Temple as a baby?
  9. Vera, I'm sure that there were and are many Messianic Jews who did except Jesus and about the Orthodox Jews , I leave that with God we're not to judge anybody, we all have a free will of what we do with Jesus and on the last day on earth,it matters for eternity what WE did with Jesus, it's so sad to see so many people reject Him and they put their trust in things of this world which cannot save us . So why worry about the Orthodox Jews before we take care of our own soul,so we will live forever with our Savior? People think they're on earth forever and have lots of time to make that decision later, we can make our Maker at anytime as tomorrow is not promised. What will you say when you stand before the Lord?
  10. Someday they can blame us for being a Christian.....what will our answer be?
  11. I agree with you to rest in Jesus,nothing is out of His control and whatever happens ,He was already there as He knows our beginning and the end. In this life we will have tribulations,but I trust God will give me the strength to go through them , sometimes life things are just thrown at us and it takes us a while to really comprohened them but it gets better quick if we know who to trust for help, Jesus never leaves us , I,m more laid back then I was before too,and isn't it wonderful just to rest in His arms?
  12. Amen ! In Christ alone, my strength is found. All other ground is sinking ground. I know that feeling Galf, as I more live in the strength and grace of Jesus, there's just nothing I can do to be a better Christian then just to follow Him, He is my lifeline for everything. In Christ we're free, we can choose to worry about things but it doesn't help, we can try to make things better but without Jesus it's not going to work. I very much trust in all the promises given to us in the Bible and the most important one is to trust the Holy Spirit that He will guide us and it's our job to follow those directions. I also remember when I was a new Christian how many don't I have put up in my life, some of them were not necessary but my flesh was helping to become a better person for God. You know what I mean? Even if I could quote the whole Bible it's all vain if I don't have my trust in Jesus Christ, I'm so glad to be a child of God and to know where I'm going,it's just a matter of time and I will reach my destination as I'm here only for a while, it's so important what we do while we're still here and I pray I'm a witness for Jesus without trying to make people believers on my own, they need the have the veil of unbelieve taken away ,we can witness and God will do the rest that is why I believe strongly in prayer, it's wonderful to give our worries to Him, knowing He will take care of them. I ones had a prayer box and put my prayers on paper and put them in the box and leave them with God,I might make another prayer box as I don't do that at the moment, I usually pray a lot during the day when things pop up in my mind. Also, I think we're often too worried what other people think of us , shouldn't it be that we should pray that Jesus is pleased with us and helps us to be a better witness as we live our life concentrated around Him? I fail in many things but my trust is in the everlasting faith of God, Thanks for the uplifting post Galf or Steve without the n ( do I remember that right ?) ( sorry,if its a bit off topic )
  13. Why do think Jesus came to earth in human form?
  14. What does it say to you?
  15. The Mexican man is not called Jesus Christ .. Willie may I ask for how you are a Christian ? I noticed some people getting very easy offended if they have a different understanding of something,this forum is to discuss what we believe and never to attach people,try to understand why they believe the way they believe and discuss things gracefully,nobody is better then another, we're all saved by grace .:)
