I wanted to take the time to tell you who Jesus is to me. He has impacted my life in such a positive way, and there is no way I would be the man I am today without my relationship with Christ. I grew up in a Catholic family, went to church every Sunday, said grace at every meal, and was taught that it was important to live a "good life" so that on judgment day, Christ would look on me with pity. This was what I thought a relationship with Christ was supposed to be like; I thought that in order to achieve salvation that I had to do my best to be a good "Catholic/Christian". To me, Christ was a person to be feared and I felt like worshiping Him was a chore that I "had" to do. I would not say that I ever had relationship with Christ even though I went to Catholic school for just that purpose. Throughout much of grammar and some of high school I was bullied and "left out" of social gatherings and events. I felt like an outcast, unloved and unwanted. As a result, my self-esteem took a hit, and I started calling myself names like loser, failure, etc. Due to these negative self-concepts, I felt that I needed to be punished, and that I was not good enough the way that I was made (physically, relationally, intellectually, etc.) In response to my depression and negative self-talk, I started binging/purging and purposely hurting myself. During this time, my only focus was on myself and my body. I thought in order to be happy, I had to look a certain way, act a certain way, and be a certain way. I was none of these and I used my eating disorder, self-injurious behavior, and eventually drinking to deal with the anxiety of being alone and feeling like I was worthless. This…
challenges in presenting the Gospel to staunch adherents of the Catholic faith. This presents an evangelist with a superlative opportunity to present the Gospel to someone who already believes they have the truth. The Gospel of Jesus Christ does not change. No matter to whom one is witnessing, whether an Agnostic or Catholic, the Gospel remains the same.
The common way to witness is to simply present the plain truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. After having heard the simple Gospel, if a person does not…
resurrection of Jesus. The book ends with Jesus at the right hand of God and the Apostles preaching the Word and performing miracles.
The purpose of this book is to give a detailed account of Jesus’ life, like the other Gospels. There were mostly parables and Jesus’ interest in the poor and oppressed; this included the Centurion’s servant and a widow’s son, one about to die and other, already dead. Jesus had compassion on both of these people and healed them completely.…
Many people perceive the Christian Gospel as confusing because it states things that have happened without direct proof, but there are also many other people who rejoice in the Gospel that has set them free and given them eternal life. Some people can’t accept morally that all sins are equal, in Consider by Dr. Weider and Dr. Gutierrez it explains how most people do not like to consider themselves in the same group as murders and rapists according to sin. Another example of this was in this week…
Learning to Share the Gospel
By Elder Don R. Clarke
Of the Seventy
The Lord is preparing people all around us—where we work, where we live, where we travel, on the buses we take, and in the restaurants we patronize.
Learning to Share the Gospel
When my wife and I were in graduate school in Washington state, a speaker challenged us to follow President Spencer W. Kimball’s admonition to be active member missionaries. During that talk I felt a strong impression to invite my good friend Garry Borders…
THE GOSPEL OF MARK
By Robert Yeoh
THE HISTORY OF THE GOSPEL OF MARK
The gospel of Mark is the 2nd book in the New Testament part of the bible. It is one of the four
gospels. It is a wide spread thought that Mark wrote the gospel using the Simon peter's eyewitness accounts. This is because mark was only a young man during the life of jesus and
was not a apostle.
The gospel has 16 chapters and out of the four gospels it is believed that mark was one of the
first written, dated back all the way to…

I decided to draw this portrait because it shows me that Jesus is trying to spread the word about God. In my drawing it is Jesus talking to his disciples, giving them the power to heal the sick people and to tell the other people about the kingdom of God. This portrait reminds me of my youth football coach, he taught us not just football, but how to overcome your troubles and treat people right and stand up for the weak.
Christian World View: Gospel Essentials
Our worldview allows us to see into the world at such an angle that it coincides with our beliefs, therefore affecting how we think and live. Whether one falls under an atheistic, pantheistic, or theistic worldview, they are guided in their life choices depending on the beliefs of their worldview. Throughout this paper, I will summarize the elements of a Christian Worldview such as God, Humanity, Jesus, and Restoration; I will then analyze questions…
Gospel music has been around for a hundred of years. Gospel music is highly emotional evangelical vocal music that originated among African American Christians in the southern United States and was a strong influence in the development of soul music. (Gospel Music) Gospel music quite evolved from the songs slaves sang on plantations notably work songs, and from the Protestant hymns they sang in church. However in the 19th century, spiritual hymns transfer into gospel music, which started the golden…
