   Would the preaching of Jesus be accepted in  contemporary churches? Would Jesus be hired at your church? If Jesus were to be hired would He then be fired?

Jesus said: John 8:24 'Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you will die in your sins."(NASB)

Would John 8:24 be deem too negative and unloving to be preached in your church?

Jesus said: John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (NASB)

If Jesus were to preach that those who pervert the gospel terms for pardon are liars, just like the devil, would He be fired by your church leaders?

Jesus said: Matthew 23:9 Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. (NASB)

If Jesus said to your congregation do not call anyone your spiritual father, would He be banished from preaching?

Jesus said: Matthew 15:3-9 And He answered and said to them, "Why do you transgress the commandments of God for the sake of your traditions?......9 ' But in vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men!" (NASB)

If Jesus were to tell your denomination to stop teaching from man-made creed books and other doctrines invented my men, would He be fired on the spot?

Jesus said: Matthew 24:10 At that time many will fall away....(NASB)
Revelation 3:1-5 .....5 He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life....(NASB)

If Jesus said, "Those Christians who do not repent will have their names erased from the book of life?" Would He retain His preaching position at your church?

 John 3:3-5 Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."........ (NASB)

If Jesus were to say, "Being born of the waters of childbirth is being born the first time. Being born of the waters of baptism is being born again." Would Jesus be allowed to continue preaching at your church?

Could Jesus be hired to preach in your denomination?

Would Jesus be fired if He preached His truth at your church?





  1. "If Jesus were to say, 'Being born of the waters of childbirth is being born the first time. Being born of the waters of baptism is being born again.'"

    Brother Steve, I'd quote Scripture on that one and not just "personal word-of-mouth".

    Only FAITH on *JESUS CHRIST* is the "new birth" of Salvation NOT "water baptism" although "water baptism" is the "second step" new believers in Christ should take:

    Thank you for this thoughtful article though...

    Makes me think *NOT* many churches would really accept the "Real Jesus" of the Bible Being the "Real Jesus". Amen.

  2. If the water mentioned in John 3:5 is not baptism then what is it? Nicodemas was already a Practicing Jew. He was in a covenant relationship with God. He was born physically into that covenant. That's why the statment by Jesus confused him.

  3. If the water in John 3:5 is not baptism then what is it? Jesus made it clear to Nicodemas that to enter His Kingdom Nicodemas would have to be born of water AND spirit. Nicodemas was initially confused because he was a practicing Jew. He was born into a covenant relationship with God. That's why Jesus said "you must be born again". This is in perfect harmony with Acts 2:38. No one has learned from the bible that John 3:5 does not mean water baptism. Someone has told them that. No acceptable bible translation says water doesn't mean water. Only commentaries will say that. In many cases the Lord spoke plain and simple. Men twist the scriptures to fit their preconceived ideas.

    All scripture is God breathed and is all we need. God cannot lie. Therefore all scripture is true. No contradictions. 1 Tim 3:16-17, Titus 1:2. Also He's not a God of confusion 1 Cor 14:33.

    Jesus is the author of words John 1:1-2 and we are judged by His word John 12:48.

    Probably would be profitable for us to just listen to His words and follow them
