The sinless can be trusted

JESUS SPEAKING

                “But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me.  Which of you convicts me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe me?” (John 8: 46-46.)

INSPIRED THOUGHTS

                Jesus boldly proclaimed himself to be completely sinless.  Not only was this an impossible claim, he also publicly challenged others to prove him wrong.  No man would be foolish enough to issue this challenge, because every man, woman, and child sins daily (No so called Godly prophet, has ever made this type of proclamation, with the exception of Jesus Christ.)  Although his enemies watched and waited for him to make a mistake, he spoke plainly and publicly without fear.  They found no sin in him, and he was crucified without cause.

                Unlike Jesus Christ, who lived a perfect existence, every self-proclaimed prophet throughout history has never dared to place their own personal lives under true scrutiny; in fact, all false prophets try desperately to hide their personal acts from being examined.  Joseph Smith for example (false prophet and founder of the Mormon faith) claimed to be God’s chosen messenger; but unlike Jesus Christ, Mr. Smith tried to keep his secretive sexual debaucheries from being made known.  While living in Nauvoo Illinois, Joseph became enraged when a newspaper began printing accounts of his sinful life.  In June of 1844; Joseph ordered the printing press destroyed.  His followers dragged the machine in to the streets and smashed it with sludge hammers (a crime for which he was arrested.)  After his death, the accounts of his evil behaviors began to surface.  He married many wives (without informing his first wife Emma until after the initial unions had been made.)  He also married other men’s wives, and married both a mother and a daughter (today, all of the books that he wrote have been revealed to be fraudulent.  His sinful personal life was an indicator of his trustworthiness.) 

                Unlike Joseph Smith, Jesus Christ’s life was completely pure; he can be trusted and believed.  He spoke no lies, exploited no one, and brought the words of God to all those who were willing to listen.  Only Jesus Christ is worthy of praise and honor.  Only Jesus Christ is able to save.  Only Jesus Christ is Godly enough to be followed and obeyed.  Won’t you put your faith and trust in him today?

                “Lord Heavenly Father we praise You and Your Son.  We recognize that he is sinless and worthy to be praised and followed.  Help us to submit to his leadership, and to make him the center of our faith.  Lord, help us to be more like Your Son, and to trust all that he has told us.  We love You Father, we praise You, and we thank You, and we ask and pray all of these things in Jesus Christ’s name.  Amen.”  God bless all of you.
