Christ belief

Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

It is important for Christ believers to know why the Bible is true and Christ is the risen Son of God. Defending the faith and case-making are key to speaking to both audiences. God speaks to us through His Word, meditation on the Word, and through other Christ believers. God is the eternal Logos [1]

Christ belief and a strong defense of the gospel are closely linked to wielding the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God (Ephesians 6:17).

Part of the big picture goal here on this media wiki platform is to help people, Christ believers and parents and babes in Christ and new seekers to find the right verses for the right situations.

I also believe that Christ believers ought to make allies and lavish with lovingkindness allies, friends, and family. There are conservatives, libertarians and independents, who share a similar heart as our own and are not necessarily (yet) Christ believers. There is something unique and extraordinary about the lovingkindness of Christ and the evidence and powerful defense of the gospel, the good news, which is the Word of God.

A main point here is to show why Christ belief is reasonable, which ties into why there is so much testimony and unknowable millions of people who have died for the testimony of this gospel. I have a lot of respect for non-Christians who generally respect biblical Christianity, which is mainly a matter of not holding Christ believers and the Bible in absolute, irrational, foaming contempt (read more: Christianophobia.

By allies I refer to reasonable people with whom we can have emotionally honest yet mutually constructive interactions; independents and libertarians, you get the idea, people who are figuring it out and closer to the knowledge of the truth then they may think.

I also deal in political knowledge. Politics and political worldview reveal much on how people view and think about power. With the radical leftists, we are talking about some very dangerous and wrong, factually and morally, ideas and strong delusions on power. In an attempt to be balanced, I note that you will also see the counterfeit problem in some "far-right" constructs such as so-called 'Christian' cults that preach another gospel and another Jesus (2 Corinthians 11:4, Galatians 1:8) and teach doctrines of devils (1 Timothy 4:1).


Verses

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Philippians 1:17 But the other [preach the gospel] of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.


Key Verses

Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

Just kidding; sheepdog wiki is premised on people being smart enough to self-educate and learn the case material and know the evidence. However, surely there are many on the radical left and elsewhere who simply cannot handle the truth.
