IS IT BETTER, NOT TO HAVE KNOWN THE WAY OF CHRIST!?

So far we have observed some warnings, which are helpful to lead the believers
towards morality and righteousness. Now let us see what is the final warning
in the following verse.

For it had been better for them not to have known the way
of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn
from they holy commandment delivered unto theim. -2 Peter 2 :21

It can not be exaggeration to say that the above verse is like a warning, which
hurls a Christian in great mentally disturbed state. And what does Peter, the chief
disciple of Jesus, say himself ? That it would have been much better for them not
to have come in to the way of Jesus rather than to turn away from it after having
known it fully. Therefore ponder over his warning how stern it is.

IS THERE NO FORGIVENESS FOR THE SIN OF A CHRISTIAN?

It is believed that however great sinner one may be, if one washes away one’s
sin in the blood of Jesus (baptised in the name of Jesus) one’s all sins will be
pardoned. But what about them, who commit sins after having been baptised?
Observe the following verses in which Bible provides the answer.

And tested the good word of God, and the powers of the
world to come, if they shall fall away, to renew them again
unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the son
of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. -Hebrews 6:5-6

DID JESUS GIVE PERMISSION FOR ADULTERY ?

Some people brought an adulteress woman at Jesus’ presence to punish her
according to the Mosaic law. Then Jesus told them, ‘He that is without sin among
you let him first cast a stone at her’. On hearing this they slipped out one by one
from there.We can see this event as recorded in the following passage.

And they which heard it being convicted by their own conscience,
went out one by one, begining at the eldest, even
unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing
in the midist. When Jesus had lifted up imself and saw
none but the woman, he said unto her woman, where are
those thine accurse? hath no man condemned thee? She said
no man Lord. And Jesus said unto her neither do I condemen
thee: go and sin no more. -John 8:9-10

DOES JESUS SAVE THE EVERY SINNER? OR SAVE THEM WHO RENOUNCED SINS?



Today our Church’s propagation is that ‘Jesus saves sinners’.But in this
regard one doubt can be raised whether Jesus saves the every sinner, who always
commit sins? or he saves that persons only those who turn from all their sins,
which they had been doing in the past, and determined to do only that which is the
right? If we pay heed in the reading of Bible we can understand that Jesus saves
only those persons who turn from all their sins with repentant hearts, and do only
what is right.

    And a great deal of moral values and good behaviour and righteousness were
found in their nature, who were living in the time of Jesus . But today even though
the gospel spreads abundantly there appears no increase in the moral values in
the society. The best example for this is what all defects are existing in others, the
same are also prevelant more in christian community. As regards to the others as
they do not have beliefe in God and do not have repentance and baptism and
hence it is but reasonable to have all the diffects taking root in them. But what
would be the reason for all such defects taking a significant place in the Christian
community ? This is very considerable and serious question . Therefore every
Christian scholar should ascertain the appropriate answer to this question before
he goes for the preaching of the gospel.

WHAT WERE THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS THAT BROUGHT REMARKABLE CHANGE?

If one wants to attain the kingdom of God 􀂃 Should get repentance 􀂃 Shou
ld turn towards God 􀂃 Not only in the times of meditation and prayer but always
one should have a firm belief that one’s God is very near to oneself, who is
observing all his deeds whether they be good or evil and one must fear God who
will judge one’s deeds 􀂃 If you lead your life in righteous way, you can attain the
everlasting life 􀂃 If you lead your life in immorality you will attain the eternal hell.
The enarmous preachings of these points were influenced on the people’s way of
living and their actions. And promoted in them the special characteristic features
such as fearing of sins and devotional attitude was developed. Immorality was
thus rooted out and automatically morality took deep roots in them. Thereby a
cruel person was also changed rapidly as a righteous person.

WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT DIVERTED THE PEOPLE
FROM THE RIGHT PATH SHOWN BY JESUS ?

According to the present preachings of the Church that if one wants to attain
the eternal life one should believe Jesus. What is that belief ? That is one should
believe that Jesus offered his life on cross as ransom for our sins. Therefore one
must convert his religion, name and appearance and dress code and take
Baptism- it is enough . But this type of propagation misleads the people straying
away from the right path.

WHOSE GOSPEL DID JESUS PREACH?

If the present Church is questioned that whose gospel are they preaching the
immediate answer we get- it is ‘The Gospel of Christ’. Then whose Gospel
did Jesus Christ preach in reality? Was it his own Gospel ? or ‘The Gospel of
God’? Therefore observe the following verse what is the answer of Jesus to this
question.

Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee,
preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God. And saying,
the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand;
repent ye, and believe the gospel.1 -Mark 1:14-15

If we observe the preaching of the present christians , it becomes evident that
the miracles of Jesus and his person are being preached to make people believe
that Jesus is God. What is the Gospel teachings in reality? The gospel focusses
on the Greatness of God Almigty and revolve around the teachings as how one
should have faith on God and that what one should do to get the kingdom of God.
This is the message which Jesus had given us. And now let us see some important
points in the above verse.

ARE THE WORDS OF JESUS HIS OWN ?

Many people believe that Jesus is as capable as Jehovah and are also propagating
so. It can be believed that Jesus is equal to Jehovah only if he speaks of
himself of his own desire just as Jehovah commands. If we ask Jesus whether
the words he speaks are his own? The answer is given by him as follows.

For I have not spoken of my self; but the Father which sent
me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and
what I should speak. -John 12:49

He that lovent me not keepth not my sayings: and the word
which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.-John 14:24

For I hve given unto them the words which thou gavest
me. -John 17:8

What Jesus makes clear in the above is THE WORDS WHICH YOU HEAR
ARE NOT MINE. Were Jesus as potent as Jehovah, Jesus could never have
spoken like this. And moreover, we can find a great difference in the way of
God’s speaking and that of Jesus’. God expresses His commands with self authority
and with all force. Observe the following-

WHO ARE THE WISE?

Every one, who is having the least knowledge, wishes to be a wise person.
Therefore Jesus expounds in the following verse, that who can be the person of that
type and by what means they can be termed as wise and what should they do?

Therefore whosoever hearth these sayings of mine, and
doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built
his house upon a rock. -Matthew 7:24

From the above verse it is made clear that he who wants to become as a wise
person that he should hear Jesus’ words. So every one, who regards himself as
a Christian should pause for a minute and think for a while Am I believing
Jehovah as God and Jesus as Christ? If your answer is in affirmative, then, no
doubt that you can be regarded as wise.

WHO ARE THE FOOLISH?

Every one, who is born as a human being never wishes to be a foolish persons.
Because there is no other ill-fated state to a person than his foolishness. What is
the reason that makes one a foolish? And what circumstances make a man
foolish? Observe the following Jesus’ words for the answer to this question.
