Matthew 4:4

It is written, 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'

Why?

I recently engaged a gaggle of atheists in discussion over the course of several weeks hoping to bring them the Good News of Christ.  What I discovered is that all arguments fail miserably when they do not rest on the Cornerstone of Christian faith, namely the Truth of Jesus Himself.  This is the One Premise on which we stand - Jesus is Lord.  All arguments begin and end right there! 

Jesus told us unequivocally who He is.  He is the Only-Begotten Son of God, and is, therefore, Himself God.  I know this Truth just as I know the sky is blue and my name is Mike.  There is not a question in my mind as to its validity.  Just as I cannot prove to someone who is physically blind that the sky is blue, I cannot definitively prove to the spiritually blind that Jesus is God.  But if we know that it is True, we have an obligation to state this fact and sow the seed.  Jesus Christ is Real.  He is Alive.  He is the Cornerstone of our faith.  He, along with the apostles and prophets, is the immovable foundation on which we build.  Always start unwaveringly with Him...the One Premise. 

The purpose of this blog is not to argue, but to present the Truth.  Knowing that Jesus is God, we know that every word He spoke is True.  I am simply going to post His Words of Truth for you to ponder.  They are absolutes, inerrant and immutable...

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell - and great was its fall.” -Matthew 7:24-27

"Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away." -Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31 and Luke 21:33

The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever. -Isaiah 40:8
