“God and Jesus”

img_7055

So what do you think about God and Jesus? Is our Heavenly Father mad at us? Did Jesus express God’s anger at people wherever he went? Or did he instead heal and make whole everyone who came to Him?

Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise. John 5:19 (NRSV)

Some people may say that Jesus was our loving healer in this present age, but in the age to come, He will return to punish sinners. In other words, His grace towards us is limited to our current life. Once we die, there are no more “second chances.”

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8 (NRSV)

What if His grace towards even the worst of the worst extends beyond death? What if even in death, He can open spiritually blind eyes and restore spiritually crippled hearts? This, I believe, is Real Life Jesus.

  1. Admiring the time and energy you put into your blog and in depth information you present. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed material. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. Real life Jesus has really good ‘Bible math’: 5 loaves of bread and a few fish feeds thousands…one of you will put 10,000 to flight…now on to Him who can do immeasurably more than we ask or think…I like His math. Jesus +me=the impossible.

    That’s not laser eyes Jesus, it’s His antithesis that I’ve been waiting for!

    1. Thanks, Martha! I removed the hidden notation on a rather large number of posts today. And I didn’t realize that it would probably generate brand new email notifications. Sorry if that loaded down your email box! But I’m glad you enjoyed the post!

    1. This is a really good question, and I’m glad that you asked it. This was the very first comic strip that I posted. My thoughts have changed somewhat since then. At that time, I was reading through some material about universal reconciliation…that ultimately all can be reconciled to God through the Cross of Christ. I guess you could call it a “side trip” on my journey.

      This past All Saints Day Feast, part of the special prayers went like this…“We commend to your mercy all who have died.” Those words “all” and “mercy” had a great impact on me that day. Many of the people named in our prayers for God’s mercy were from other faiths or unbelievers.

      So now, I am thinking less along the lines of “a second chance” and more along the lines of “God’s mercy and loving kindness are everlasting.” This gives me a greater sense of peace.

      Hope that helps? Your question definitely helped me to clarify this for myself!

      1. Thanx for the explanation. I know we would take comfort jn believing in second chances, but not sure that is sound theology. I always say that we don’t know what some one may say and believe in there last moments on earth.
