Why did Jesus himself and even demons refer to him by this title? (part 2 of 2)

by Brian Hayward

*Continued from previous post

"He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his              father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”                     Bible, Gospel of Luke 1:32-33, New Testament

This announcement by the angel Gabriel to Mary is actually a prophecy about Jesus who would be born to a virgin woman. Who actually called him the Son of the Most High?  Answer: demons, disciples, and even Jesus himself.

Merry Christmas! Yes, this is what Christians believe. (part 1 of 2)

by Brian Hayward

How can it be that a man can be the Son of God?!  Yet this is what Christians celebrate at Christmas, not simply the birth of a special baby, but the birth of a divine child.  Among Muslims and secular-minded people, this is unbelievable.  Let’s look into this claim further by going back to the Hebrew scriptures of the Old Testament (Tawrat) which will give us a context for what the angel says to Mary the mother of Jesus.  Here’s the key prophecy that God reveals to David (pbuh):

Why do you believe God loves you? Why should anyone?

by Simon Cox

During this third week of Advent, as Christmas Day is approaching, we celebrate the love that God has so generously given us. Most people (atheists excluded perhaps) seem to agree with the notion that God loves everyone. It’s a simple idea that reflexively rings true. Some people might agree at first but become more hesitant when the question is personalized then asking, “Do you believe that God loves YOU?” To some it might be a strange thought imagining the Creator of the Universe singling you out of a crowd, pointing his finger with a smile and saying, “I love YOU!” You might be uncomfortable believing that the one true God loves you despite the bad things (sins) that you know you have done.

Caught in the Middle of a Paradox

by Sarah MacDonald

What is happening? Everyone seems to be exalting what you find disturbing. God is one. That is what you cry. You know that God is one. Tawhid. He is holy and just and righteous. You know that He is good. But what is wrong with the world? Do they even know what they’re doing with their lives? Looking forward, you see something you don’t understand. Why all the lights, why all the uproar, why all the fuss? It doesn’t make sense. Why, in a broken world, try to hide the brokenness with lights and fluff and vain things? You take an honest look at your life. You think about all the holidays, and how they come and go, and how you know that one day, maybe someday soon, you will face God on judgment day. That is why you can’t seem to understand what everyone is doing.

Sam and Adam reflect on comparative religion and the gospel

by Sam Alvarado and Adam Simnowitz

As Ramadan comes to an end, I can’t help but ponder on what I observed in my neighborhood. ...I can’t help but to be reminded of how Jesus answered a question posed to him by people seeking to be justified before God. They asked him, “What shall we do that we may work the works of God?”  Click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrMXlQ2ZWJ0

.............................................................................................................................................................................................................

I have a Syrian Muslim friend with whom I have shared the message of Jesus many times.  Once he objected to the idea that people can be forgiven simply by believing that Jesus died on the cross for our sins.  It seemed to him that if a person could be guaranteed forgiveness, he would use this as an excuse to commit whatever sin he so pleased.
