Our Dramatic Example- Jesus Christ

"People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy."

It is with these words that billionaire Bruce Wayne (played by actor Christian Bale) decides to bring Gotham City back from the depths of crime and despair. Hence, Batman is born.

Many have called the crucifixion of Jesus Christ grotesque, brutal, and immoral. However, one wonders if God knew that He too needed a "dramatic example" to shake His people out of their apathy.

"For God so loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him" (John 3:16-17).

Brutal? For sure. Grotesque? Absolutely. Dramatic? Without a doubt.

Courage and Godspeed,
Chad A. Gross

The truth is, if you have told even one lie, you are a liar. If you have stolen even one thing, you are a thief.JESUS said that if anyone even looks upon a person to lust for them, they have committed adultery already with them in their hearts!
Revelation 21v8 says "all liars will have their part in the lake of fire"
no thief, or adulterer will ever inherit the kingdom of GOD!
You broke GODs laws but JESUS paid your fine! You must repent, turn from all sin, and trust in JESUS CHRIST alone for salvation!
