I will bear my own cross myself for my sins and not bother the great Christ. Am I right ?
You have the right to choose to do whatever you want to do. No one can make that choice for you. If you think you can make it to heaven without Jesus Christ, then you are wrong. He carried His cross so that you might find life.
Thanks SirDent for your response. One of the wonderful teaching I learnt from Bible is that one should not assume himself/herself as the wisest because such person is the most ignorant in the eyes of God. A true devotee asks for heaven to all, right?
If Jesus Christ (or some other Hindu God, or Guru or saint) is willing to carry the cross for my sins, I would try to off load it, definitely!
When I assume that I will carry my own cross, it means that when I feel responsible for my sins, I will try my best to avoid them. However,I will surely seek guidance of saints with utmost respect to them. My friend C.V., I love Jesus, the great.
We all have our own cross to bear, as part of following Christ. You can't read the Sermon on the Mount, without realizing that Christians will be persecuted, ridiculed, and have all manner of evil perpetrated against them.
Jesus tells us to pick up our cross daily and follow Him. That means He has to have first place in our lives, on a daily basis. We have to daily, consciously, give Him first place in our lives. Our family and friends, can only have a place lower than # 1. Our job and our careers have to take places even below that.
We have way to many fans of Christ, willing to cheer for Christ, from the seats. Very few pick up their cross and follow Him Daily.
A very wonderful take on Christ the great and you just threw light in the dark room. Thanks, jstfishinman.
jstfishinman That means we are to live the kind of holy life he lived, not to put him first .He taught us to put the one almighty God first. Yahshua taught us the life we are to live.
John 1:1 tells us that The Word was with God and was God, therefore putting Jesus first is putting God first. Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one God.
We are to live for God, and not His messenger. We are to live the way he lived, but not for him, for God
You are to go directly to God for every thing. This is exactly what scripture says that Yahshua (Jesus) taught.
He never said we need a mediator and that everything he said and did was really God the Father
Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
They were one as married people are one, not the same person/God
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
He didn't mean they would become one person
Deborah Sexton, the beautiful quotes given by you reinforce my beliefs though imbibed as an extract of everything I read and experienced. Thank you very much. God bless you.
