they kiled people because they had noting to do and they could not do any womans
He could have stayed in heaven on His throne, living the life of luxury, but He came down to this horrendous world humbly as a baby, born to a virgin. He grew up living a humb…le life right next to those who would one day kill Him. He loved, loves, and will always love us and because He loves us He grew up here on earth and lived to die. He was rejected by the people that He came to save. When He grew to be a man, those He came to save crucified Him - because He was perfect and they felt threatened by Him. They put Him on a cross, putting nails through His hands and feet and a crown of thorns on His head. They mocked Him, and spat at Him.They beat Him to the death and as if that wasn't enough, they stuck a sword through His side to make sure He was dead. He did that to give us forgiveness of every single sin committed by others, to give us - the people who killled Him - forgiveness for our mistakes. Jesus' sacrifice was His life for all, which is why Christians live their life for Him. He is the creator of the universe yet loves and died for us. People become Christians when they accept this sacrificial gift by believing in Him, admitting they have sinned and are not perfect, and that God is the one and only God whom we need. ANSWER Christ made no sacrifice he was a God and the seed conceived by the power of the Spirit of God that was made by the Holy Ghost, Jesus was the representative of Christ. We all wear a Spirit that is the power of life within our body, and we each develop Intelligence which is the ghost being invisible, and we are clothed in the body made from the dust of the earth which contains all that we are, so we are all four in one and one for all, as we are not the body, not the spirit, not the ghost but we are what has been filled to hold all. When Jesus asked Peter, whom do you say that I am? Peter answered, thou art the Christ the son of the living God. and Jesus answered and said, flesh and blood did not reveal this to thee. Jesus was not conceived by the knowledge or ghost of the earth being carnal nor by the power of sensuality. Jesus when asked by Phillip to show him the father, Jesus answered and said, have you been with me this long and still know not the father, the father is in me and I am in the father. Gods don't do what they want to do but that which they have to do being directed by who they represent, and they represent all that they are. We all originally came from GOD and when we die each different part of us will go back to that God from where it came. the earth is a god it provides for us that which our bodies are and need. Jesus being more Spirit and Ghost was their representative on earth to show us what we are made of. When our ghost is anointed with the Intelligence of it's originality it to becomes whole and can fill every fiber of the being as does the spirit. We are all created to have an image of The Gods.
Yes It Is because if You Read the lyrics It Is all true:)
Most believe that He is the son of God, sent to earth to atone for the sins of mankind. There was no other pure enough to be able to do this for all had fallen short of this g…reat honor. He was the spiritual first born of the Father and so it fell upon Him to take upon himself this great task. It will be he who will judge mankind at the last days, It is he who rose from the dead to break the bonds of death brought about by the transgression of our first parents. Through his death and resurrection, all mankind will also be resurrected. Another answer Since The Bible is so old and was written in many different languages, everyone picks and chooses what the think is true. That's why there are so many varieties of Christians (Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Baptist, Pentecostal, etc.). Another answer The Bible says the penalty due mankind for rebelling against God is death, after life. In the book called Hebrews in the New Testament of the Bible it says: Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, The bible also say a person can be saved from death after life and have life after death this is called salvation. In the Bible the way of salvation is through the death of Jesus Christ, which God has accepted as a suitable payment for mankind's rebellion. The first book of John, in the Bible, says: 1Jn 5:11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 1Jn 5:12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. By accepting God's gift of His son (Jesus) you will receive life after death.
Self sacrifice, helping others without thought of reward, is a good thing.
The two are usually interchangeable. "A Christian" suggests that you wear the label. "Christian" suggests that you live out your belief.
Because it shows that nothing is before God. If your favorite thing is to watch TV and sports, sacrifice it for the week and pray to God to show him that Sports is not in fron…t of him. But the Bible also says Obedience before Sacrifice( Isaiah 1:1-11).
What is the difference between the sacrifice on Calvary to the sacrifice of the mass of Jesus Christ?
There is no sacrifice of the mass in Protestant faith, for Jesus was sacrificed once for us on Calvary, so no other sacrifice is needed. You shall have to ask our Roman Catho…lic brethren on this question.
Jesus Christ is Lord, as Thomas said: And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God (John 20.28)
I don't think so, because then the Muslims might believe in Jesus as Saviour.
No, Christianity is based on divine sacrifice, that took place almost twenty centuries ago, and we all can take part in it through faith. Isaiah 53:10 - " Yet it pleased th…e LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand." John 1:29 - "The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." John 3:16-17 - " For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life, for God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."
he is sinless . A perspective: . The purpose of a " sacrifice " is its " shed blood ." It's a messy, ugly, horrifying -- and necessary -- ritual that graphically displays… the dire results of SIN [man's transgressing... breaking... of God's Commandments - I John 3:4]; the dire results of man's failure to Love and Respect and Care about others. . "...we can say that under the old agreement almost everything was cleansed by sprinkling it with blood, and without the shedding of blood THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS OF SINS ." (Heb.9:22 LVB Living Bible) . The Bible reveals that all of the sacrifices of the past [beginning with those of 'Righteous Abel,' toward whose sacrificial offerings [Abel was the 'keeper of sheep' - Gen.4:2] 'the Lord had respect' [Gen.4:4]; all of the 'animal sacrifices' of the past pointed to Christ's UNIQUE sacrifice . . For the "LORD" God who had this respect for Abel's sacrifices [and all the sacrifices that were to come] was the WORD of God -- the One who would later be born in the flesh and called JESUS CHRIST: . "All things were made by Him, and without Him was not any thing made that was made." (John 1:3) . The trouble with animal sacrifices, however, is that: "...these FAILED TO CLEANSE THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE who brought them... the people had to keep these rules to tide them over until CHRIST CAME WITH GOD'S NEW AND BETTER WAY." (Heb.9:9-10 LVB ) . This "better" [UNIQUE] way lay in the " quality of the blood " that Jesus shed over that of mere animals. . In recent decades, man has discovered " DNA "... which, in an attempt to put it into somewhat understandable language that our finite human intellect might grasp: is a built-in IDENTIFIER AS TO THE FATHER OF A CHILD. . And of all the children born into the world... the Bible tells us that Jesus' Father WASN'T HUMAN . Jesus' Father was God. Therefore, Jesus' DNA afforded Him the UNIQUE quality of having coursing through His veins DIVINE BLOOD ! . The PERFECT BLOOD for SACRIFICE is DIVINE , perfect, unblemished blood! . But men didn't know about DNA, or the testing thereof, two thousand years ago. They couldn't test Jesus' blood... or take a swab of His saliva, or a hair clipping, etc., to test to see who His Father was. . If they had... what might they have found? The "physical" proof of Jesus' Divinity with which science would be satisfied? . Jesus' "blood sacrifice" was also UNIQUE in that, not only was His blood the one Perfect Sacrificial Offering to God the Father [which His Father accepted, once for all]: but for the man who places his FAITH in Jesus' Divine Blood ... and BELIEVES what the Scriptures say about Him... that man may, in turn, BECOME ONE OF GOD'S CHILDREN , also -- and take on the DNA of Jesus' Father. To DO the deeds of Christ, who always obeyed His Father: . "...you will realize that I AM He and that I do nothing on My own , but I speak what the Father taught Me . And the One who sent Me is with Me - He has not deserted Me. For I ALWAYS DO THOSE THINGS THAT ARE PLEASING TO HIM ." (John 8:28-29 NLT New Living Translation) . The sacrifice and shedding of Jesus' blood is UNIQUE, in that from one's Faith in it and lasting Remembrance of it... a man may be reborn into the Family of God, to become the Child of their Father in heaven... and the brother of Christ, the Father's Firstborn Son. . "Just think how much more the Blood of Christ will PURIFY OUR HEARTS from the deeds that lead to death so that we can worship the Living God. For by the power of the Eternal Spirit, Christ offered Himself to God AS A PERFECT SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS . That is why He is the One who mediates the new covenant between God [the Father] and people, so that all who are invited can receive the Eternal Inheritance God has promised them..." (Heb.9:14-15 NLT ) . "For His Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts and tells us that WE ARE GOD'S CHILDREN . And since we are His Children , we will share in His treasures - for everything God gives to His Son , Christ , IS OURS , TOO . But if we are to share His Glory, we must also share His suffering." (Rom.8:16-17 NLT ) . No animal's blood , shed in the horrifying ritual regarding the temporary forgiveness of sins, held the Power or the Majesty or the UNIQUENESS as that of the MURDER OF GOD'S SON and MAN SHEDDING THE BLOOD OF HIS CREATOR! . It was the Father's will that it be done to Save His creation from the false god they chose to worship in the beginning in the Garden of Eden. To save them from their false god... his perverse ways... and from DEATH, the end result of those ways. . Faith in Jesus' UNIQUE shed Divine Blood possesses that Saving Power. It was shed willingly, Selflessly and Lovingly by God for the sake of His Children: . "...'My Father! If it be possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from Me. Yet I WANT YOUR WILL , NOT MINE .'" (Matt.26:39 NLT ) . As Royal and Divine as Jesus' Blood was... He was also very much a man; not thrilled about the prospect of being brutally murdered by His creation. He would have been perfectly happy if His Father would have offered an easier solution to Salvation and Eternal Life. . But sin is ugly... and deadly. It leads to suffering, and misery... to disrespect, infidelity, murder, theft, lies, deceit, jealousy, envy, lust, greed. It leads to diseases, famines, wars and death. It leads to exactly the kind of world man has created for himself through the manifestation of his sins. And the only way for sin to be eradicated is through the shedding of blood . . Jesus knew this going in. He knew why He was here, born a man... the Divine Son of His Father. He was terrified of it... but He always does those things that please His Father. He always bows to His Father's will. . "While Jesus was here on earth, He offered prayers and pleadings, with a loud cry and tears, to the One who could deliver Him out of death. And God heard His prayers because of His reverence for God. So even though Jesus was God's Son , He learned obedience from the things He suffered. In this way, God qualified Him as a Perfect High Priest, and He became the source of Eternal Salvation for all those who obey Him." (Heb.5:7-9 NLT ) . Animals don't fret about such things. . And no sacrificially shed blood of an animal possessed the UNIQUE Power of Jesus' Divine Blood. Animal sacrifices were based on ritual. Jesus' UNIQUE sacrifice is based on FAITH . A heartfelt... heart and mind-cleansing Faith in God's Perfect Sacrifice.
He was crucified (hung on a cross) for everyone's sins. So basically he died for everyone. That's a pretty big sacrifice.
The United Church of Christ was formed by the union of several Christian Protestant churches. They are Christian, Reformed, Congregational and Evangelical in their beliefs.
Under the "Old Covenant" (Old Testament) The Jews offered animal sacrifices, But when Jesus Christ came into the world and was crucified on the cross of Calvary, and was burie…d, and was risen the third day, He ushered in the "New Covenant" (See Jeremiah 31:31). The church began fifty days (Pentecost) after the Passover when Jesus was crucified. The animal sacrifices stopped for the people who had accepted Jesus as their Savior. In the Book of Romans, 12:1, Paul tells us that we are to offer or present our bodies as living sacrifices, holy, acceptable to God. What is meant by this is that Christians are to live holy lives and prepare themselves and be ready to serve God wherever and whenever He calls on them for service. That is our sacrifice for God. We are to serve Him.
Not animal sacrifices, but Christ said that instead, he wanted the sacrifices of our broken hearts and contrite spirits. In other words, he wants us to be humble, realize when… we've done wrong, and repent.
