So....here's more of my random thoughts
...so...you know how the majority, if not all, of the Christian Religions teaches that Jesus was perfect? The WWJD messages and the strife to be Christ like in all aspects of our lives....well, I've had sort of conflicting beliefs on these things. While I believe yes we should be the very best people we can be and not take the gift of redemption and repentence for granted, which Jesus amptly demonstrated through his time on earth... how can you strife to be like something that you know is unattainable...why reach for the unreachable? With that said...Is it so hard to believe that Jesus Christ was a man... and had the same temptations that we go through everyday of our lives? I feel that Jesus's main purpose on earth was to be a testimony to the power that God has over life and death in this world, as well as demonstrate that no matter what trials we suffer here on earth we have the ability in ourselves to overcome those obstacles. The belief that Jesus was a man for me makes things in my life so much easier to deal with..........aaaannnd I'm spent.
