My Personal Jesus

I think a lot of people might be embracing a Jesus that is a figment of their own imagination. He is a gentle guy who requires nothing, expects nothing, demands nothing, and let’s us pick-and-choose which parts of the Bible we want to live by. His nature has been changed and lifted right out of the scriptures and refashioned into a “graven image” made with our own hands. A far cry from the Holy Scriptures.

Christianity often has too much bling and we love excitement, yet we don’t value staying power or bearing fruit of the Spirit. To some, Jesus is not the God of holy writ, but just a ‘good ole boy’ who let's me get away with everything.

Sola scriptura
