Easter period is the time we celebrate the coming of Christ to the world. We celebrate Jesus for coming, suffering, surrendering to take our inequities and setting us free. But if He had not surrendered to die for us, what will be our hope? what will we live for? i just cant stop thinking of this. please share your views
Welcome to hubpages Timobile There will be no hope if Christ had not surrendered for us. Jesus went to calvalry to die for our sins. That's not how it all ended. Three days later, he rose again There is no greater love than a man who would lay down his life for our sins. Christ came to save us. The spirit of the Lord is freedom. Praise God.
yah, "went to calvary".. Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the JOY that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
..just the beginning
Everything God does is a beginning
thanks for welcoming me and sharing your views
If christ hadnt died for our sins then millions of muslims wouldnt have been piled up after being dismembered by the christians.
"But if He had not surrendered to die for us, what will be our hope?"
Well! I always want someone else to suffer for my sins. I would definitely not like to suffer for my own sins nor would I like the idea of keeping myself away from sins.
So, I will look for some other messiah! Anyone else there??
What does Jesus' execution have to with what you do with you life?
Keep living in the past and you are useless to the present, and cannot be any use for the future.
Too bad you have to live with thoughts in the past, which are completely irrelevant and meaningless to the future.
Create your own purpose, find your own meaning and you will have hope for your own future. It will only be done through your own actions, regardless of what has happened in the past.
This is so sad. What would you live for?
Were the New Testament non existent you would still be. You might not feel that you were somehow worthless, and washed in sin. You might not believe your only hope was the intervention of God to forgive your 'sins'.
I have always wondered why so many Christian focus on that part of the story. Sure, you believe you've attained salvation; but when you hinge a life philosophy on an afterlife you miss out on the more important things in this part of your existence. You miss out on living the message that was shared.
Maybe if you stepped away from this portion of your scripture and focused on something else.
Something I always remembered when I was a Christian. 'Judge not, lest ye be judged.' It works all the way around. Not simply not judging others, but stop judging yourself unfairly. Reflect on your weaknesses, use the knowledge to become a better person, not beat yourself up. To place so much focus on sin is losing the focus on all the good in the world and in you.
I live to see the religious threads stay in the religion forum.
I live to make the most of the life I have.
I live to enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
I live to learn and study and discuss.
I live to travel and see all the fascinating history and nature around me.
I live to take photos, to read and to write.
I live to love my life, my family, my friends, my world, my universe.
There is so much to live for.
We would all still be happy pagans, skipping around and enjoying some spring rites that included too much wine, song and other stuff! Happy Spring to you all
If there were no hope of eternal life people would have no reason to be civil towards one another. There would be no retribution for the missdeeds they have done in their lives, and they would not be held accountable for themselves. It would be hard to imagine all the wrong in the world to go unjustified.
What would have happpened to us if Christ have not died for our sins?
Nothing would have happened; as Jesus has no role to play in forgiving sins; he had no such authority from the Creator-God Allah YHWH.
Yes he does.
Matthew 28-18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
I'd have been cool - our noodly lord the Flying Spaghetti Monster would have smoothed things out. Who is this "Jesus" fellow anyway?
You can get Good or Evil in point of you from GOD.Nobody can stop and allow nothing to you with out GODS permission.
previously Devil control the things and acting as a creator[GOD].

I am a staunch Christian and have met and talked with many a born again Christian. I had no nerve to ask them to their face if they continued sinning. Very forgettable and forgivable sins like say, a little gluttony:...
