No matter what you say, your body is not your own!

You know, I am so tired of all these young women, who claim that,

"It's my body, I can do what I want with it..."

That is so not true......maybe if they started reading the Bible...God's word...they would think differently!

1 Corinthians 6 The Body Is the Lord’s

In verses 19 and 20, we read...."Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?

20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

The Eyewitness Testimony That’ll Make You Never Doubt the Resurrection Again.....

Christianity's core belief is that the Son of God took on human form, died for our sins..... and then rose from the dead to give us eternal life.

But if Jesus Christ didn't come back to life, it undoes His claim to be the all-powerful, eternal Son of God, Savior and Messiah.  

So, Christianity hangs on the Resurrection.

To believe the events around that first Easter, you pretty much have to believe that Jesus did indeed exist and that the New Testament can be trusted.

At the Impact 360 school in Pine Mountain, Georgia, Prof. Jonathan Morrow preps college-bound Christians in how to fight with the facts of their faith.

Jesus Isn't Just in the Bible......

He told CBN News, "Investigating the Resurrection is a historical question that you can do with eyes wide open; it's not a blind faith kind of thing, like believing in the Easter Bunny or a lucky rabbit's foot.  

This is real world kind of stuff.  And you can investigate the data for it." 

Morrow added, "So when it comes to the Resurrection, we say 'Well, how do we know Jesus existed?' Some people even doubt that.

 The fact is, we have far more sources for Jesus of Nazareth than we do for many historical figures in the first century.  

We have at least 18. Twelve of those are non-Christian sources."

There's more evidence Jesus existed than Julius Caesar. Anyone doubt Caesar existed?

As for the Scriptures, Prof. Darrell Bock of the Dallas Theological Seminary explained that any piece of a surviving ancient work is called a manuscript. And more ancient pages or fragments of the Bible have survived by far than any other book from antiquity.

"It's exceptional," Bock said. "You're talking about over 5,800 Greek manuscripts, over 8,000 Latin manuscripts. Most books that we work with in the ancient world have maybe at best a dozen manuscripts." 
Jonathan Morrow is a defender of the faith, the literal meaning of "apologist."  But he says Christians shouldn't just defend the faith and the Resurrection. They should embrace it and let it change their lives

Even on the cross, Jesus forgave......

From "Our daily bread"

In the first century, the common attire for a Jewish man included five pieces of clothing—





and outer tunic.

After crucifying Jesus, the soldiers divided the Saviour’s garments as their spoils for performing the task.

After each took a portion of clothing, one remained........the tunic.

Doe this mean that even the loincloth was taken—and Jesus’s last shred of human dignity with it?

In a heartbreaking fulfillment of David’s messianic song,

they stripped Jesus naked and then gambled for the tunic.( nothing like the statues and pictures you see in Roman Catholic churches)

In Psalm 22:17–18, where crucifixion was prophetically described some 600 years before it was invented, David said it would be so:

“All my bones are on display; people stare and gloat over me. They divide my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment.”

The soldiers gambled for all they could get, unaware of the fact that mere feet away Christ was freely forgiving and giving all He had out of love for them.

Forgiveness lies at the heart of the Christian faith, with our Saviour extending forgiveness even when He was dying on the cross.

Jesus loved those who had nailed Him there, uttering a prayer asking His Father to forgive them.

He didn’t hang on to bitterness or anger, but showed grace and love to those who had wronged Him.

This is a fitting time to consider before the Lord any people we might need to forgive as we follow Jesus’s example in extending His love to those who hurt us.

When we ask God through His Spirit to help us forgive, He will come to our aid—even if we take what we think is a long time to forgive. When we do, we are freed from the prison of in-forgiveness.

We don't have to forget, as long as there is no bitterness in the remembering......

Mathew 26....

Matthew 26
1 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,

2 "Ye know that after two days is the feast of the pass-over, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified." ( Having been with Him these 3 years, and hearing Him mention things like this quite a few times, you'd think they knew what He was talking about, right?)

3 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,

4 And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.

5 "But" they said, "Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people." (It was actually a pagan feast the Romans were celebrating their goddess "Ishtar" also known as "Astarte")

6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,

7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.

8 But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, "To what purpose is this waste?

9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor."

10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, "Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.

11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.

12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.

13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her".

14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,

15 And said unto them, "What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you?"

And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.
