When Jesus asked the 12 disciples who followed Him, whether they would leave from Him, Simon Peter replied: “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. ” (John 6:68) Friends, Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. Those who believe in Him were born out of death and into the eternal salvation. But if you have not believed Jesus, you are a person without the life; this is the most horrible and most tragic thing for human life. I sincerely invite you to take a few minutes to ponder the eternal meaning of the Gospel:
Time magazine had a cover article in the issue on October 9, 2006: “What Makes Us Difference (WMUD)?” It showed the latest gene comparative studies for explaining the evolutional relationship between chimps and man. You may check the contents of WMUD on the website of Time.com. EMTM uses the study of WMUD to quote a part of the contents and its arguments to analyze a traditional mistake of evolutionists, with an understandable logical analysis for the public. They apply the so-called “scientific formulas and diagrammatic decomposition method” to packaging philosophical conception of religion, because the theory of evolution itself is a religion, no proof but needs human belief to accept. Here, we expect you carefully think about the four questions.
Today church leaders always talk about various methods, programs, and plans of preaching the Gospel, but they do not think about what kind of the Gospel they deliver to others. Here, we can bring up an example of a common content used by church believers for telling people the Gospel: “God so loved the world and will give them the eternal life; but because of their sins, people are isolated from God. Therefore Jesus Christ became the sole salvation prepared by God for forgiving human sins. When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, you will get the eternal salvation and have a good relationship with God.” Though this concise message of the Gospel is from the Bible, it simplified the whole contents of the biblical truth and omitted some important teachings from Jesus our Lord.
From the earliest times to now, mankind has experienced an unfathomable number of deceptions. But everyone lies from an early age without the need of a teacher. Similarly everyone will be deceived. When they are greatly hurt by a lie, they might view it as the greatest fraud they ever experienced in their lifetime. However, for the whole of mankind, what is the greatest deception of all? Or in other words, what gave mankind the most damage? The answer is the hand in hand workings of evolutionism and atheism. These ideas have fooled many, causing them to lose sight of the meaning of life and then they lose the chance of the pursuit of eternal salvation.
First, we should make a definition of stupidity: human stupidity means that people do not understand the true identity of themselves, but invented all sorts of philosophy and religions for self-deceiving. What is the true identity of the mankind?
The most important sentence among the 66 books of the Bible is: “You must be born again.” These words came from the mouth of God who became the incarnation, and the Lord Jesus made repeatedly His statement, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”(Please read John3:1-8). Unfortunately, many Christian churches no longer teach the truth of rebirth, but regard the faith as a religious concept. Therefore, people cannot see the light and salty of Jesus from believers’ lives, and that has caused churches and believers’ spiritual inanition and desolation.
Today, the Bible has been translated into thousands of languages, and there are many different versions of the Bible for major languages in the world. If people count the versions translated by heresies, they do not know which one is accurate translation. However, we have the original texts of the Bible which are the authoritative versions for us to interpret the Bible. When we state that the Bible is the inerrant and authoritative Word of God, we point to the original manuscripts of the Bible according to Faith Statement of EMTM.
From the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem to today, there are still many Jews who haven’t turned to Jesus and acknowledged that he was the Messiah that they have been waiting for. Why? The prophecies of the Messiah are clearly written in the Old Testament of the Bible, why do the people who believe in Jehovah not accept Jesus as their Savior? Below are the top ten reasons for why they don’t accept Jesus, and we look forward to having you to discuss these reasons together with us.
Today when we study ancient literature and mythology, merely regard those contents what we fail to understand as superstitious fabricated ones, or as talking about bizarre fantasy-style story. But we do not rethink why we ourselves cannot understand the contents of ancient written records, such as《The Book of Seas and Mountains》from the ancient Chinese. Therefore, we should use the studies on the ancient times as a tool to research why and how the ancient peoples composed those myths which seems like a Double Dutch to the modern people. Here, we propose a new concept: “Mythological Psychology” and we expect those who are interested in this field to participate in the discussion.
We EMTM know that most of nations, nationalities, and tribes have the written words or pronunciations of spirit and soul. If someone says that there is no the existence of spirit and soul, why have the words of spirit and soul existed? And the words of spirit and soul are not new vocabulary brought about in the modern history, for we may trace the words back to the origins of human civilization. The word of spirit in the ancient Jewish language also has another two meanings: respiration (gas) and wind. What kind of relationship does that application relate to the culture of Qi (gas) and Qigong (a system of breathing exercises) associated with the ancient Chinese civilization?
