But, hold on what does that mean?
Jesus lived a short life over two thousand years ago he went against the religious status quo and got killed for his troubles. Jesus showed us that men can dispute about God even with God and not know Him. Jesus said; "Before Abraham was, I AM"
Right smack dab in the center of Christianity is Jesus Christ. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. The centrality of that fact is paramount in living a Jesus centered existence. I have a dream that all Christians throughout the world would show that Jesus is the center and repent from "Denominational Divergence". Lets start with our own neighborhoods, cities, towns, provinces/states and countries by being part of the solution and not part of the problem.
Imagine if you had prior knowledge that a building housing 1000's of people was going to burn down at 3:00 A.M. on November 1, 2009.
Would you tell them about it?
Now the bible states that unless we repent and turn from our sins we will burn forever...
Consider Luke 16: 19-31;
"There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores and longing to eat what fell from the rich man's table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.
"The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried. In hell, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So he called to him, 'Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.'
"But Abraham replied, 'Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.'
"He answered, 'Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father's house, for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.'
"Abraham replied, 'They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.'
" 'No, father Abraham,' he said, 'but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.'
"He said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.' "Do you believe that Jesus was risen from the dead?

The Lord bless and keep you;
