A lot of Christians are good humanitarians and generous, but their own sin makes them believe many things without any good reasons. That should not be a problem, as long as they do not allow unverifiable beliefs to fool them to go against God's will.

CHRISTIANITY PAGE: Why do Christians have faith? Faith lacks reason!

Jeremiah 3:13-15 says “[13] Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the LORD. [14] Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: [15] And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

Isaiah 40:10 says "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."


Do faith and miracle without understanding and righteousness make imagination in vain?

The Jesus Nebula: Released by the Hubble Space Telescope in April 2002, many Christians see the face of Jesus Christ in this heavenly object. http://ww1.prweb.com/prfiles/2004/04/27/122020/H0211bSmallA.gif


WHY they are having too much imagination?

Hosea 7:13-15 says " [13] Woe unto them! for they have fled from me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against me. [14] And they have not cried unto me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against me. [15] Though I have bound and strengthened their arms, yet do they imagine mischief against me."

Isaiah 1:27-30 says “[27] Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness. [28] And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed. [29] For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen. [30] For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.”

What is the problem in Christianity? 

Many religion scholars have come forward and publicly admitted that they do question the integrity of the New Testament. (See: Scholars' question on the Home page of selfwisdom.net

Rethinking about John 18:38 indicated "Pilate saith unto him (Jesus), What is truth?"

The True Messiah would provide fair judgment for what the New Testament indicated and what many scholars pointed out. And; God's true Messiah will show evidences that were Jesus the Son of God or Christ?

John 16:7-8 indicated that JESUS stated “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, he Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.”

Is the comforter the True Messiah? If the answer is “yes”, then the True Messiah must answer all the mysterious things. 

John 16.16.13 “Howbeit when he the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”

Most ministers need the Old Testament for their preaching, because the main important verses and about the Messiah are found in The Old Testament.

Christian's willingly accept JESUS is the son of God and willingly accept his resurrection based on faith and beliefs.

Is it wrong to have faith with JESUS?

Absolutely not.  If one would consider what scholars have pointed out in the New Testament, should one be questioned before putting their faith with JESUS?

Why did JESUS’ Gospel's record the event for Jesus being the son of God and the resurrection for out of harmony but serious contradiction with each other and really different?  TIME April 8, 1996 posted:  "What do Christian's believe? 

Why does TIME magazine post using the word "believe" and not faith? 

One may consider three keys subject from the New Testament as follows:

1. Is Jesus the son of God?

First of all, you need read and consider the two quite different stories of the young child named Jesus recorded in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke in the Authorized King James version of the Holy Bible.  

Matt. 2:1-23 Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt. And be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. When he (Joseph) arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt (Went South from Bethlehem): And was there until the death of Herod.

Matthew 2.19-22 : But, When Herod was dead, behold, and angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream  to Joseph in Egypt. Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child’s life. And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel. But when he heard that Ar-che-la-us did rign in Ju-daae-a in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwith standing, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the part of Galilee.

Luke 2.7-39: Jesus was born in Bethlehem. And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so name of the angel before he was conceived in the womb. And when the days of her (JESUS mother) purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him (JESUS) to Jerusalem (Went North from Bethlehem) to present him to the Lord.
Gospel of Matthew or Luke was truly contradicted.  Then how Jesus is the son of God?   God did not make confusion.  Old Testament indicated that God preserve simple. Pss 19  [7] The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. [8] The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.  

Gospels of Mathew and Luke show that there were two real different Jesus. None on earth can distinguish which one was the true Jesus.  Are you?  This is the answer that Jesus is not the son of God.

2.  Is JESUS’ resurrection impossible faith?

Before saying "Yes" or "No" It needs to read the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.  They evidenced that they did provide similar or harmonized stories about JESUS’ crucifixion.   It is also clear that the Gospels have contradictions among them about JESUS' resurrection.  Why! Please see the following statements:

Matthew: indicated that Mary Mag-de-le-ne and other Mary went to tomb. Suddenly an angel came and rolled away the tomb’s stone and sat on it.  The angel said, Jesus arose and went to Galilee where his disciples saw him.  The woman told Jesus’ disciples, and they met Jesus at a mountain in Galilee, and worshiped him even though some doubted him.

Mark had two versions of JESUS’ resurrection.

Version A: Mary Mag-de-le-ne, the mother of James and Sa-lo-me, came to the tomb and saw a young man sitting at the right inside the tomb. The man said, JESUS arose and went to Galilee where you can see him. Both Mary’s went out quickly for they were afraid and told no one.
Version B: JESUS arose from the dead early Sunday morning, he first appeared to Mary Mag-de-le-ne at the place he had cast out seven devils, and Mary went to tell Jesus’ disciples, but no one believed her.

Luke: Mary Mag-de-le-ne, Jo-an-na, Mary the mother of James, and other women went to the tomb. They were puzzled when they did not see JESUS’s body.  Behold, two men stood by them and said, remember JESUS said “The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day he shall rise again (Luke 18:31-33: all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man).  And the women remembered.  They returned to tell JESUS’ disciples, but the disciples did not believe them.  But peter ran to the Tomb and departed, wondering to himself about that which came to pass.
On the same day, two of JESUS ‘ followers were going to Em-ma-us village. JESUS came to talk to them, but none of them recognized him.

John: Mary Mag-de-le-ne went to the tomb and then ran to JESUS’ disciples to tell them that they had taken JESUS’ body from the Tomb and she did not know where they put him. The disciples ran to the tomb and saw the same thing. They did not understand what the scriptures said about him rising again from the dead, and the disciples went home. But Mary stood and looked at the sepulchre. And saw two angels, one at the head and another at the feet where JESUS had laid. She ask them where JESUS was, and when she turned back she saw JESUS, but she did not recognize him, and thought he was a gardener.

Should JESUS’ Gospel be trusted about Jesus’ resurrection?

Matthew

Mark

Luke

John

Mary and other women went to the tomb and did not see JESUS. 

 

Angel told Mary that JESUS rose and went to Galilee.

Mary and JESUS’ disciples went to see JESUS at Galilee, and worshiped JESUS but some doubted.

Version A:

Mary and other woman went to the tomb and did not see JESUS.

A man told them JESUS rose and went to Galilee, but they did not tell anyone.

Version .B: JESUS rose from the dead and appeared to Mary early Sunday morning at the place that JESUS cast seven devils.

Mary told JESUS’ disciples but no one believed her.

Mary and other women went to the tomb.  They did not see JESUS

 

only two men in tomb.

They return to tell JESUS’ disciples, but they did not believe

only Peter ran to the Tomb and departed, wondering in himself.

Mary went to the tomb and did not see JESUS. 

 

 

and came back to tell JESUS’ disciples,

the disciples believed and ran to the tomb, and saw the same thing

they forgot the scripture said about him rising again from the dead,

and they went home.

Pual wrote in I Corinthians 15.12-17: “ But if there be no resurrection of the dead. Then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.Yea, and we are found false withness of God:

Old Testament: Isaiah 51.5 indicated that “My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and my arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.”

What is the answer about JESUS’ resurrection? True witness of God will has righteous answer about JESUS’ resurrection that had been impossible faith.  But the choice of false witness can pick up just one gospel out of four of them, and hold on for it.  

3. Was JESUS recognized as Messiah or Christ because of the living water?

Before answering the question, one should know about “the living water”.

What is JESUS’ living water? 

One could understand from the statements indicated by JOHN 4.10-11 and 4.38. (JESUS speaking is in Italics)

First, you will need to consider the words of John 7.37-38: “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” It may clear that the living water comes out from his belly.  But what is the living water?

Second, consider John 4.10-11 and 13. There cometh a woman of Sa-ma-ri-a to draw water (at Jacob's well): Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat) Then saith the woman of Sa-ma-ri-a unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Sa-ma-ri-a? for the Jew have no dealing with the Sa-ma-i-tans, Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God. and who it is that saith to thee. Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? Art thou greater than out father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself , and his children, and his cattle? Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but shall in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy hasband, and come hither. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: For thou had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband; in that saidst thou truly.

John 4.25-26: The woman saith unto him, I know that Mes-si-as (Messiah) cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

Please consider the communication between Jesus and the Samaritan woman as follows:
If thou knewest the gift of God. and who it is that saith to thee. Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

Question:

1. How could Jesus draw water from the deep well without anything to use for drawing water?

2. What was the actual living water that Jesus offers to the Samaritan woman?

Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but shall in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy hasband, and come hither. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: For thou had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband; in that saidst thou truly.

The first and second verses are neither a mystery or parables, it is clear to understand that  Jesus’ living water is the spermatozoon of man  that man released into woman while having sexual intercourse. Please consider the following statements:

For thou had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband.

Is this conversation about them having sexual intercourse?  

By the evident of Gospel of John indicated that Jesus was Christ because of Samaritan woman told men about all thing that ever she did. The unlock key word was "the living water" that Jesus also cried at the last day, the great day of the feast, saying about out of his belly shall flow of living waters. (John 7:37-38)

John 4.28-29: The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

John 4.13-14: Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but shall in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Is it possibly true that a woman that receives living water shall thirst again?

Is it possible true that man could have living water in their everlasting life? 

By AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE. Published: March 31, 2007

A 110-year-old Saudi man has taken a second wife because his first, 85-year-old wife no longer satisfies his needs, the English-language daily Arab News said. The report did not explain why the man considered his current wife to be unfulfilling, but it said that his new spouse is 30 years old.

It should be usual to see many old men with a young wife and many of them could be able to have children because of the living water that springs up into everlasting life.

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/31/world/middleeast/31briefs-saudi.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

Conclusion of three keys subject which are as follows:

1. Is Jesus the son of God? No
2. Is JESUS’ resurrection impossible faith? Yes, and
3. Was JESUS recognized as Messiah or Christ because of the living water? Yes.

And by evidences of the New Testament shown that scholars try to indicate truth for Jesus’ believer to think more than twice of having faith with Jesus. Because it will jeopardize their soul.
