I saw a Go Animate video put together by a student for a class project. It got me thinking, maybe I can make a Go Animate video for the Contradict Movement. I managed to make a Jesus character and a Buddha character. I wanted to share a lot of verses from Jesus’ own mouth, so this was a great way to do it. About 95% of everything the Jesus character says in this video is all “words in red!” That’s what I like so much from this video.
If the verses I have quoted in this video are all true, and I firmly believe they are, they are the best news anyone can hear! There is life after death, death has been swallowed up in victory. Jesus is our all sufficient Savior and he loves us all, so much, that he innocently died in our place, like a an exchange on death row!
The downside, the side that brings me tears, is that if the verses quoted in this video are all true, and I firmly believe they are and that there is historical proof that they are, then all must repent and call upon the name of the Lord to be saved. Apart from Christ there is no salvation is what these verses claim, so it’s great that our savior is revealed, but they also reveal the depth of our sinfulness, we must be in Christ to be a new creation, to have eternal life. Many are not. Many actually believe that it doesn’t matter what we believe as long as we do good. But all of us have fallen short of God’s standards and we aren’t good in his sight, no matter how much we serve the poor. The only way to be seen as good in the eyes of the Lord is to have the righteousness of His Son, which only comes from faith in Christ. Don’t fool yourself – yoga leads to death, the eight-fold path leads to death, the five pillars lead to death, observing the Laws of Moses leads to death, and so on and so on. For it is by grace we have been saved, through faith, and this not of ourselves, for it is a gift, so that no man may boast.
