My first reaction to this video was shock. I couldn't believe that someone could speak like that in such a public forum. If a speaker in a similar forum talked about how Jesus died for all of our sins he or she would have been rushed off the stage. But I quickly got over that. St. Peter wrote, 'Don't be surprised that a trial is occurring among you, as if something strange were happening to you.' (1 Peter 4:12) Christians should expect to be persecuted.
Can you see the truth through the Religion vs. Jesus debate? We're praying for you as you talk about this issue and the viral video with your friends. We loved how well Peter Kreeft articulates this question about 'church' in his book Before I Go: Letters to Our Children about what Really Matters. Here is the truth, boiled down to the basics without any fancy distractions.
If you’ve been “Keeping up with the Kardashians” you know that Kim is getting divorced. She and Kris Humphries have been married 72 days. I've done the math for you and it's not even three months! It leaves the question in my mind, 'Is true love possible? Is it real? Can two people stay together ‘Ìâ‰âÂÌâèÏtil death do us part'?' See for yourself. Take a look at this real couple, Danny and Annie, and their 27 year love story; and believe God has something amazing planned for your life. (Jeremiah 29:11)
