A description of Jesus, the imaginary king

“That’s My King! Do You Know Him? ”

The text of the video:

The Bible says my King is the King of the Jews. He’s the King of Israel. He’s the King of righteousness. He’s the King of the ages. He’s the King of Heaven. He’s the King of glory. He’s the King of kings, and He’s the Lord of lords. That’s my King. I wonder…Do you know Him?

My King is a sovereign King. No means of measure can define his limitless love. He’s enduringly strong. He’s entirely sincere. He’s eternally steadfast. He’s immortally graceful. He’s imperially powerful. He’s impartially merciful. Do you know Him?

He’s the greatest phenomenon that has ever crossed the horizon of this world. He’s God’s Son. He’s the sinner’s Savior. He’s the peak of civilization. He’s unparalleled. He’s unprecedented. He is the loftiest idea in literature. He’s the highest personality in philosophy. He’s the fundamental doctrine of true theology. He’s the only one qualified to be an all-sufficient Savior. I wonder if you know Him today.

He supplies strength for the weak. He’s available for the tempted and the tried. He sympathizes and He saves. He strengthens and sustains. He guards and He guides. He heals the sick. He cleanses the lepers. He forgives sinners. He discharges debtors. He delivers the captives. He defends the feeble. He blesses the young. He serves the unfortunate. He regards the aged. He rewards the diligent, and He beautifies the meager. I wonder if you know Him.

He’s the key to knowledge. He’s the wellspring of wisdom. He’s the doorway of deliverance. He’s the pathway of peace. He’s the roadway of righteousness. He’s the highway of holiness. He’s the gateway of glory. Do you know Him?

Well, His light is matchless. His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His love never changes. His word is enough. His grace is sufficient. His reign is righteous, and His yoke is easy and His burden is light. I wish I could describe Him to you. Yes, He’s indescribable. He’s incomprehensible. He’s invincible. He’s irresistible. You can’t get Him out of your mind. You can’t get Him off of your head. You can’t outlive Him, and you can’t live without Him.

Well, the Pharisees couldn’t stand Him but they found out they couldn’t stop Him. Pilate couldn’t find any fault in Him. Herod couldn’t kill Him. Death couldn’t handle Him, and the grave couldn’t hold Him. I wonder if you know Him.

The only problem is that Jesus is imaginary:

Is there any evidence that Jesus actually existed? No.

Why do people get this excited about a “king” that never speaks, never appears, never does anything?

    “He”s incomprehensible”

    Yep, I’d agree with that sentiment.

    Sm Lockridge was an awesome pastor and that was an awesome message. I know you have now met the King fact to face. RIP

    Jesus is mentioned as real by men who are not Christians. Credible historians acknowledge his existence. I hope you will research this.

    Whether there are really “credible” historians who acknowledge Jesus’ existence, it questionable. But even if there are, all they say is that there was a man on earth called “Jesus”. Maybe. But this does not tell us anything about whether this Jesus was God, died for our sins, and rose from the death.
    So these historians are definitely not a reason to believe in the Chrstian faith.

    Apart from this, isn’t it strange that this God, who accroding to the bible wants every human to find the truth and be saved, did not do anything to make his cause widely known to historians? No historian mentions, for example, that the veil in the temple was torn into two pieces when Jesus died, that hundreds of dead people stepped out of their graves and walked along the streets, that the sun became dark, etc. (this is what the bible claims). And no historian mentions the resurrection. Strange, isn’t it? Why would a loving God who is concerned with humans’ wellbeing not make sure that his great dead of salvation becomes widely known and unrefutable?

    The only realistic explanation is: Jesus (as a resurrected being) does not exist. If there ever existed a person called “Jesus” who died on the cross – well, he must be dead now.

    you have asked for a sign and here it is. God loves you more than you could possibly imagine. And whatever you are going through is hard but just maybe God was trying to get your attention.

    R U kidding? The Bible is the all time best seller and Jesus Christ is probably the most famous man to ever live. I would say a pretty good job was done.

    “R U kidding? The Bible is the all time best seller and Jesus Christ is probably the most famous man to ever live.”

    I think the point that was brought up was that historians, who seek out true things that happneded in history, don’t consider biblical events to be true historical events.

    Homer’s Odyssey is well known, but I am sure you don’t claim the events that happened in the Odyssey to be real.

    The video forgot to mention the part, where Jesus said he won’t come back to the end of days. Asking him to appear would be against his will, and therefore, it doesn’t matter how many people you gather, its not in HIS NAME. God doesn’t do whatever we ask.

  10. on 13 Aug 2010 at 2:03 am 10.Mitch said …

    Jesus did come 2000 yrs ago and many still did not believe. It would be no better today and Jesus stated as much.

    Creation is God’s general revelation to mankind. If you can observe science and creation and not believe nothing would convince you. Regardless of what God did you make the claim “we don’t know but we will eventually”.
    God’s plan is perfect unfortunately for man we are not and some will continue to harden their hearts. It is sad but it is reality.

    That’s funny, because the Bible says the opposite.

    John 14, 12-14:
    “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”

    (This is just one of many, many verses in the New Testament that say basically the same thing… ask Jesus for what you want, and as long as you’re sincere and really believe in Jesus, you will get it, it doesn’t matter what it is.)

    Now, I know you THINK that the Bible says Jesus won’t grant wishes on request, but it doesn’t say that. Why? Because the idiots who wrote the Bible really thought that prayer worked.

    Now, 2,000 years later, we know better, but people want to still cling to the Bible, so they make up all these conditions and restrictions on prayer, so that when it doesn’t work, it will seem like there’s a reason it’s not working.

    Sounds nice, but none of that stuff is in the Bible.

    “Jesus did come 2000 yrs ago and many still did not believe. It would be no better today and Jesus stated as much.”

    Maybe the Jesus as you claim didn’t come 2000 years ago and some carpenter was good at doing magic tricks and preaching, so many people were gullable to believe him when he said he was God. Or maybe a guy named Jesus didn’t exist at all and was just a made up person. Either way, there is a reason why many still did not believe. Those were the people that knew the truth. And the reason why it is stated Jesus said it would be no better today is because when something is made up of course the obvious future is that many people won’t believe, so he (or the creators of the bible)had to think of a way to say it to steer those who will notice people don’t believe so that they don’t choose the same path.

    “God’s plan is perfect unfortunately for man we are not and some will continue to harden their hearts. It is sad but it is reality.”

    Reality? LOL Not. You and I are reality becsause we are proven to exist. You can NOT claim something is real if it isn’t proven to exist.

    The single fact that we are even discussing if God exists proves he doesn’t exist. If he truly existed we wouldn’t even be here discussing it. Think about it.

    3D. once again, that verse said “in my name.” which is THE KEY POINT. If a guy goes out and kills a woman, in Jesus’s name, is it really in Jesus’s name? no. why not? because it wasn’t his will. In order for a prayer to be answered, its obvious that God needs to be willing to do it.

    When a prayer in Jesus’s name COINCIDES with his will, then its answered.

    What? Maybe we could claim that the fact we discuss this proves He does exist????

    Please show me the logical progression with that statement? I believe in God more now than I did 40 years ago. Not only for His faithfulness in my life but due to the discoveries of science that display His glory. For me, it is without question and for you, in reality, you just don’t know. Think about it.

    If praying only works when you pray for something God wants to do anyway beforehand, what’s the point of praying?

    We could discuss unicorns, or flying toasters that dream of rainbows. Would discussing those things prove that they exist?

    However, you are right that the earlier claim is false too. Simply debating whether God exists doesn’t prove anything either way.

    I believe in God more now than I did 40 years ago. Not only for His faithfulness in my life but due to the discoveries of science that display His glory.

    Hold on, now God is responsible for science too? Why did he wait 200,000 years into human history to come up with a way to refrigerate food and pasteurize milk, and cure terrible childhood diseases? Since he waited so long, can we also put the blame on him for all the people whose lives were lost to disease and poisoned food, because he withheld that great glorious knowledge of those scientific advancements from us until the 20th century?

    Where has God ever promised man he could live for ever in this world? Where did God promise we would never suffer with disease and death in this world? Nope, just the opposite. Man brought it on himself and it is another fallacy to blame God. The great complexities of science I believe are a gift from God to man used to reveal himself. Man likes to discover and wonder and he provides the wonders for our benefit,

    But, you are a big man for admitting the fallacy of your previous argument.

    If that’s the case then why did the other poster give God credit for revealing cures for diseases?

    Either he intervenes by implanting the cures for diseases in the mind of scientists, or he doesn’t, right? So if he did, then why did he wait till millions of people died from those diseases? Why not just let them continue dying?

    You should get on the same page with the other theists in here, then. It’s weird how different people read the same book and come up with completely different stuff, huh?

    They have been saying that God actually waited until the 1900s and then revealed the cures for polio and other diseases. You should speak up and let them know that God just hid this stuff in the world and waited for man to find it.

    No, not really. You are speaking of things which God does not completely reveal. Funny how scientist can look at the same facts and reach differing conclusions? How about atheist? I know atheist who believe in spirit forces! How about you?

    Anyhow, I haven’t seen any difference between me and the “other poster” you refer to. As a matter of fact, I haven’t seen any difference but there probably are some. You expect a simple human being to understand everything God does and why. We do not. We are finite, limited beings like you. Take a gander at Is 55 to see why. I noticed atheist like that book.

    Just looking at the fifth reason on that video, “Jesus’ face apeared on my toast this morning” that just made my frickin day! I laughed so hard.
