Why It's Hard To Love Jesus takes a close look at the story in Luke 7 describing Simon the Pharisee and a sinful woman who anoints Jesus with expensive oil. When we're confronted with the reality of Jesus, do we remain indifferent and religious like Simon the Pharisee or do we fall at His feet in adoring worship like the woman who had been forgiven much? Joseph Stowell challenges Christians to honestly probe the answer to this penetrating question.
You cannot find peace in your heart if you do not appreciate the power of love,
you must cultivate love, you must feel love and express love otherwise you
cannot forgive anyone who wronged you. And finally the words uttered by Jesus

Publisher: Brazos Press
Chances are you know someone who is gay--a coworker, family member, or friend. And chances are, as a Christian, you're not exactly sure how to relate to this person. While the church has been pretty good at "hating the sin," it hasn't really known how to "love the sinner" without fear of condoning a homosexual lifestyle. Chad Thompson, a man who has struggled with homosexual feelings, argues that "homosexuality needs to be solved through relationships." Drawing from the life and words of Jesus, Thompson gives readers permission to love and befriend homosexuals before they change--and radically, even if they never change--their sexual orientation. This candid book includes an appendix of additional resources. It will be a valuable tool for pastors, teachers, counselors, and any Christian who knows someone who is gay.
As I have revealed the Father, so shall you reveal the divine love, not merely with words, but in your daily living. I send you forth, not to love the souls of men, but
rather to love men. You are not merely to proclaim the joys of heaven but also to ...

Jesus A Revelation of God JESUS A REVELATION OF GOD is a comparative study of Jesus’ words in The Bible and The Urantia Book. In JESUS A REVELATION OF GOD Laurence unlocks the truths contained in the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Laurence started by cutting the words of Jesus from each of the four gospels. He then put each passage together in chronological order, combining the material into one story. Laurence used thirty-five versions of the Bible along with ten other books by other writers on the gospels to write JESUS A REVELATION OF GOD. Laurence then compares Jesus’ words in The Bible with the words of Jesus in The Urantia Book. Laurence Whelan has been searching all his life for the truth. His effort has culminated in a nineteen-year study of the words of Jesus. Mr. Whelan hopes that JESUS A REVELATION OF GOD will lead you one step closer to the truth. This book is the second edition of JESUS A REVELATION OF GOD, the third of three books Mr. Whelan has completed: 1. JESUS THE WORD, contains only the words of Jesus. 2. JESUS THE WORDS OF JESUS contains the story of Jesus. 3. JESUS A REVELATION OF GOD is a comparative study of Jesus’ words in The Bible and The Urantia Book.

Can beliefs be healed that were created in error? Of course they can, and this is precisely why Jesus returned to give these messages to mankind. He did this in order to show the truths he taught 2,000 years ago. Yes, he did return; and rather than take time to show the many errors in the Bible, Jesus instead presents what he really said and meant. Read this book and investigate the central message of Jesus revealed anew today. The core teaching of Jesus is that it is the will of our Heavenly Father to give the great gift of His Divine Love. Learn what this means and how this love may change your life. This book is a new compilation of selected spirit writings from a larger collection generally known as the Padgett Messages. James Padgett received these messages between 1914 and 1920; and though they were delivered by the spirit world nearly a century ago, the reader will discover that they remain relevant and true today.
Jesus said He was God's Son. Who can fathom the depths of the love of Jesus,
who, while being crucified, prayed, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know
what they are doing"?”The words of Jesus clearly affirmed His love for humanity.

Wherever you experience the love of God, it is always personal, intimate, and life changing. The key to learning and choosing love is tapping into divine love. The craving for love is our deepest emotional need, and we feel it and are drawn to others when they speak love in our language. This same principle applies to the most important relationship—our relationship with God. Do you realize that the God of the universe speaks your love language, and your expressions of love for Him are shaped by your love language? Learn how you can give and receive God’s love through the five love languages—words of affirmation, quality time, gifts, acts of service, and physical touch. Gary writes, "As we respond to the love of God and begin to identify the variety of languages He uses to speak to us, we soon learn to speak those languages ourselves. Whatever love language you prefer, may you find ever deeper satisfaction in using that language in your relationship with God and with other people." Contains personal reflection questions and a study guide for groups.

Christians do not love Jesus enough! Indeed on a scale of 1 to 10 the average Christian's love for Him scores no more than 2. That is the startling message of Lloyd David Elcock's first volume of a series of scriptural expositions that he proposes to publish under the rubric: "What the gentiles have done to Christianity." The foundation upon which he has built that series includes the following three cornerstones: Biblical Christianity can accurately and justifiably also be called Jewish Christianity. After the control and direction of Biblical/Jewish Christianity was passed from Jewish to Gentile hands at the beginning of the 2nd century AD, the Gentiles comprehensively deformed it, and 1200 years later, partially reformed it. The salvage and recovery of Biblical/Jewish Christianity, begun five hundred years ago by Luther, Calvin and the other Gentile Protestant Reformers, is only fifty percent completed; in particular, a number of the most important doctrines of Biblical/Jewish Christianity are yet to be recovered and their absence from today's Evangelical Church is the principal cause of the endemic and widespread carnality, and stunted spiritual growth that characterize the lives and lifestyle of the overwhelmingly vast majority of born again Christians everywhere in the western world. In this first volume, the author puts forward the view that one of those as yet unretrieved fundamental doctrines is the major key to the Spirit filled life of love, faith and power that is the ultimate goal of both Biblical Christianity and Gentile Evangelical Christianity. That key, he contends, is hidden (in plain view), in the pages of the fourteenth chapter of John's Gospel

But do we really do this?

This book is very much about The Gospel of Thomas - that much-too-little-understood "alternative" gospel which the early Christian church condemned and banished into virtual obscurity for nearly 2000 years. But mostly, the book is about Jesus. Thomas's gospel acts as our guide as we go through the book delving into what the author feels Jesus is trying to convey to us. So much of that is about Awareness - Consciousness - of God's Kingdom as ever-presence NOW, the author contends. Above all, this book is about precisely that which the author wished to convey in the book's title: Jesus As I Have Come To Know And To Deeply Love Him. The author has come to know a very approachable and human Jesus, as well as a courageous spiritual and social rebel who faced-up to both Rome's Empire and the Jewish aristocracy without blinking. The universal love of Jesus was increasingly experienced by the author as the book progressed, deepening the author's own love for Jesus.

took the words of Jesus Christ to Rome to ... they would also remain revered

Described by Professor Hans Holzer, a leading authority in America on the paranormal, as the greatest medium of our time, Philip Solomon shares his amazing story, from his childhood psychic experiences of been born into a mediumistically gifted family with show business connections, through his many strands of spiritual and psychical development, to the finely honed, highly attuned state of awareness he has achieved. For those of you who think that mediumship is merely passing on messages from beyond the grave to members of a Spiritualist church or theatre audience, then your eyes are about to be opened, as this book covers predictions, meditation, hypnotism, sports psychology, guides and angels, ghosts and the paranormal, healing, astrology, leylines and UFOs, with an emphasis on the innate ability in each and every one of us to develop psychic awareness. With a fitting foreword by respected fellow-medium, Derek Acorah, this book will definitely challenge your perceptions and broaden your outlook on life, both on the earth plane and in the spirit world beyond. In this and his many previous books, Philip Solomon’s intentions and convictions are clear. He has been chosen by Spirit to walk a sometimes difficult pathway on a mission to prove beyond doubt the existence of life after death and other-worldliness and to assure those that have lost loved ones that death is not the end.
