Leonard Nimoy Photographs Fat Naked Women On Table as Hobby; Plays Samuel the Prophet in “David”
By David J. Stewart

Philippians 2:15, “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.”

       I had known since 2007 when the New York Times first reported that Leonard Nimoy of Star Trek liked to photograph fat naked women laying across his dining room table; but I nearly fell out of my chair when I went to my local Christian bookstore, bought the Biblical movie of “David,” and then saw Leonard Nimoy playing the prophet Samuel. Go figure!

Leonard Nimoy -- a paladin for the plump
Ex-actor's images sing out in praise of naked plus-size body

Abby Ellin, New York Times

New York Times | Sunday, May 20, 2007

Before we begin, let's get one thing out of the way: Yes, Leonard Nimoy is more than happy to do it -- the Vulcan salute, the gesture that launched a thousand spaceships. He does so easily, effortlessly: palm outward, fingers extended, the index and middle finger smashed together, the ring finger and pinky touching, the thumb sticking out on its own.

"People ask me all the time," Nimoy said, carrying saucers of coffee and tea into his art-filled living room off Central Park West. He placed them next to galleys of his forthcoming photography book, which sat near a copy of "Carnal Knowing: Female Nakedness and Religious Meaning in the Christian West," by Margaret R. Miles, and a folder of news clippings on obesity.

"You see what I have here, about the health guidelines for models?" he asked, pointing a long, tapered finger toward the file.

The basso profundo voice was unmistakable, his words occasionally clipped with his native Boston accent. "They now have to have at least a certain weight to qualify," Nimoy added. He looked pleased. This is a subject that speaks to him.

He knows that he is an unlikely champion for the size-acceptance movement; body image is a topic he never really thought about before. But for the last eight years, Nimoy, who is 76 and an established photographer, has been snapping pictures of plus-size women in all their naked glory.

He has a show of photographs of obese women on view at the R. Michelson Galleries in Northampton, Mass., through June; a larger show at the gallery is scheduled to coincide with the November publication of his book on the subject, "The Full Body Project," from Five Ties Publishing. The Louis Stern Fine Arts gallery in Los Angeles and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston have acquired a few images from the project. A few hang at the Bonni Benrubi Gallery in New York. (Their explicitness prevents the images from being reprinted here.)

These women are not hiding beneath muumuus or waving from the bottom of the Grand Canyon a la Carnie Wilson in early Wilson Phillips videos. They are fleshy and proud, celebrating their girth, reveling in it. It is, Nimoy says, a direct response to the pressure women face to conform to a Size 2.

"The average American woman, according to articles I've read, weighs 25 percent more than the models who are showing the clothes they are being sold," Nimoy said, his breathing slightly labored by allergies and a mild case of emphysema. "So, most women will not be able to look like those models. But they're being presented with clothes, cosmetics, surgery, diet pills, diet programs, therapy, with the idea that they can aspire to look like those people. It's a big, big industry. Billions of dollars. And the cruelest part of it is that these women are being told, 'You don't look right.' "

Nimoy, who divides his time among homes in New York and Los Angeles and on Lake Tahoe, admits that before he began this project, it had never occurred to him that beauty might be culture driven, that a fat body in Africa is treated quite differently from one in the United States. "In some cultures their weight is a sign of affluence: Their husbands can afford to feed them well," he noted.

His enlightenment came about eight years ago, when he had been showing pictures from his Shekhina series -- sensual, provocative images of naked women in religious Jewish wear -- at a lecture in Nevada. Afterward, a 250-pound woman approached him and asked if he wanted to take pictures of her, a different body type. He agreed, and she came to the studio at his Tahoe house. She arrived with all sorts of clothes and props, "as if she were playing a farmer's wife in a butter commercial," he said.

His wife, Susan, who was assisting him, said, "No, we want to shoot nude." So the model removed her clothing and lay down on the table. At first Nimoy was very nervous, he said.

"The nudity wasn't the problem," he said, "but I'd never worked with that kind of a figure before. I didn't quite know how to treat her. I didn't want to do her some kind of injustice. I was concerned that I would present this person within the envelope of an art form."

But soon he relaxed into it, lulled by the clicking of the camera and the woman's comfort with her body. He placed some of the shots in various exhibitions, and they invariably garnered the most attention. "People always wanted to know: 'Who is she? How did you come to shoot her? Why? Where? What was it all about?"'

He decided to pursue the subject further and was led to Heather MacAllister, the founder and artistic director of Big Burlesque and the Fat Bottom Revue, a troupe of plus-size female performers in San Francisco. MacAllister died in February of ovarian cancer, but something she said to Nimoy in one of their first meetings struck a chord. " 'Any time a fat person gets on a stage to perform and is not the butt of a joke -- that's a political statement,' " he recalled. "I thought that was profound."

Initially, he was interested in replicating Herb Ritts' popular image of a group of nude supermodels clustered together on the floor, and a Helmut Newton diptych of women clothed and then unclothed in the identical pose. MacAllister and some of her friends agreed to be his subjects. He then posed the women to simulate Matisse's "Dance" and Marcel Duchamp's "Nude Descending a Staircase."

The responses have ranged from joy to horror. One formerly obese woman said the photos terrified her; she said they recalled a picture she kept in her wallet as a reminder of her former self. Other women have thanked Richard Michelson, the Northampton gallery owner, for displaying the images, and even asked if Nimoy wanted to photograph them.

"I am actually amazed at how little negative reaction there has been," said Michelson. "I attribute this in part to the gallery setting, and the fact that Northampton, Mass., is perhaps the most liberal city in the most liberal state in the nation.

"We do overhear some reductive 'Is Nimoy into fat chicks' comments when the gallery room is first entered," he said, "but in fact the fun nature of the work and the quality seem to shut people up by the time they leave. I've had a few crank e-mails with snide remarks, but not a one from gallery visitors."

The Big Fat Blog, a Web site devoted to fat acceptance, wrote about Nimoy's photographs in 2005. A woman calling herself Nellicat wrote in response: "I'm 5'5" and weigh between 130 and 135. But I don't feel as comfortable in my own skin as I should. I look at those women strutting, posing, laughing, and I feel real envy towards them. There they are, posing for a man (!) knowing that the whole world will be able to see them naked (!!) and they are LOVING it. Oh, to be that free! To be that comfortable and beautiful in your body -- I truly envy them." ...

This world is getting crazier and crazier every day. I mean no unkindness to Mr. Nimoy, it's just disturbing that nothing is held as sacred and holy anymore by this world. Porn Queen Plays Jesus in The Passion of Christ!
 

Filth and Smut in Falsely Labeled “Christian” Films

Sad to say, some of the most heathen, inappropriate and sensual movies on the market today are so-called “Christian” movies. The movie “Joseph” shows Potiphar's wife seducing Joseph and you can clearly see her naked body under the negligee she is wearing in the film. The film's producers are very deceitful by NOT rating the so-called “Christian film.” In fact, very few films labeled as “Christian” are rated for that very reason. There are some really suggestive scenes in these movies. If they were rated, it would have to be R-rated for violence and sexual content. Religious films are some of the nastiest trash on the market.

Underneath any superficial goodness, Hollywood is rotten to the core. In the well-known Christian film, A Walk To Remember, which apostate Christians praise so much, there is an evil spirit of sensuality at work. When Landon Carter (played by Shane West) approaches Jamie Sullivan (played by Mandy Moore) in her car, he asks if she's “feeling Christian,” because he needs a ride home. The camera immediately focuses between her legs, which are moving in and out under her thin dress, which creates a sexual invitation type of scene. It is definitely sensual and sexually suggestive. This is Hollywood at work. They can't even make a good movie without adding something sensual and sexually suggestive to it.

If you want to really get mad, then read my review of the filthy, smut, trashy film, SAVED; starring Mandy Moore and Macaulay Culkin (Marilyn Manson's buddy). Mandy Moore is a genuine loser. Anyone who attacks my precious Savior is a loser. The entire movie mocks and desecrates Christianity. At one sick point in the movie, Cassandra looks at the crotch of Jesus on a cross and makes the statement “Now, that's what I call being hung on a cross.”[1]

In the movie Pilgrim's Progress, Christian's wife stands up at the kitchen table with a thin white skirt on and you can clearly see her buttocks line thought the dress. It is a sexually suggestive scene that does not belong in an alleged “Christian” movie. Any moron knows whether something is inappropriate or not. This filth is deliberate, because it's a well-establish fact that any type of sensual content or scantily-clothed women boosts a film's ratings in this wicked world.

Perhaps you say, “Boy, you have a dirty mind.” No, I have a man's mind. And you are either a homosexual or need to go see a doctor if you can view a scantily-clothed woman and it doesn't affect you as a man. I am sick and tired of heathen producers labeling sensual garbage as being “Christian.” In case you don't believe a preacher like me, who loves Jesus Christ and is trying to live right, then maybe you'll believe the Chinese government...

China Bans Sexually Suggestive Ads on Radio, TV
by Sreeraman | September 27, 2007

China's broadcasting watchdog has banned all sexually suggestive advertising on radio and television.

Commercials featuring sexually suggestive language or behaviour or featuring scantly dressed women were "detrimental to society," the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) said in a circular on Tuesday.

All stations are prohibited from broadcasting commercials and programs involving drugs, sex-related health supplements, drugs for sexually transmitted diseases, sex toys, as well as "vulgar" ads for breast enhancement and female underwear, according to the circular.

Commercials in which celebrities testify to the effects of products are also banned, reports Xinhua.

The SARFT also ordered an end to programs with names including sex-related drugs, products or medical institutions.

"Sexually suggestive ads and bad ads not only mislead consumers seriously and harm public health, but are socially corrupting and morally depraving, and directly discredit the radio and TV industry," the circular said.

In July this year, the SARFT released a notice to stop ads with inappropriate content or sex implications from appearing on TV screens.

A total of 1,466 ads involving two billion Yuan (US$267 million) have been removed since August, statistics from the SARFT showed.

The administration warned stations that failed to monitor the quality of commercials and programs would face severe penalties.

Since September 5, China's broadcasting watchdog has punished ten radio stations for talk shows involving sexual topics.

Now why is it that the Chinese Communist government recognizes that scantily dressed women are detrimental to society; but ChristianityToday and church groups all across America are defiant on the issue. No one is ignorant in this matter. Hosea 4:6 says that God's people were destroyed for a lack of knowledge; knowledge that THEY REJECTED from God.

The average churchgoer and American today have their heads buried in the sand? Can you believe that the Communist Chinese have more morals than Americans do? Would to God that our nation would sexually suggestive filth from TV, not allowing scantily dressed women. All of the smut and filth being used in advertising today and movies is corrupting our society.

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, Fact or Fiction?

Ye Must Be Born Again! | You Need HIS Righteousness!

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, Fact or Fiction?

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, Fact or Fiction? (He is not here: for he is risen, Matthew 28:6)

 

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is either ...
the greatest event, or the greatest fraud — in history!
 

Did Jesus Christ actually rise from the dead?

Dr. Greenleaf, the Royal Professor of Law at Harvard University, was one of the greatest legal minds that ever lived. He wrote the famous legal volume entitled, A Treatise on the Law of Evidence, considered by many the greatest legal volume ever written. Dr. Simon Greenleaf believed the Resurrection of Jesus Christ was a hoax. And he determined, once and for all, to expose the "myth" of the Resurrection. After thoroughly examining the evidence for the resurrection — Dr. Greenleaf came to the exact opposite conclusion! He wrote a book entitled, An Examination of the Testimony of the Four Evangelists by the Rules of Evidence Administered in the Courts of Justice. In which he emphatically stated:

"it was IMPOSSIBLE that the apostles could have persisted in affirming the truths they had narrated, had not JESUS CHRIST ACTUALLY RISEN FROM THE DEAD, . . ."

(Simon Greenleaf, An Examination of the Testimony of the Four Evangelists by the Rules of Evidence Administered in the Courts of Justice, p.29).

Greenleaf concluded that according to the jurisdiction of legal evidence the resurrection of Jesus Christ was the best supported event in all of history!

And not only that, Dr. Greenleaf was so convinced by the overwhelming evidence, he committed his life to Jesus Christ!

What changed his mind? What evidence did Dr. Greenleaf encounter that so drastically turned him around? What facts did he discover that he could not rationally ignore?

In order to answer that, let's go back to that scene nearly 2,000 years ago. That eery night in the garden of Gethsemene, as a blood-thirsty mob came and arrested Jesus Christ. He was brought before Pilate, and there in plain view, Jesus Christ was spit upon, cursed, he was laughed at, whipped, beaten. He was branded a blasphemer. And He was sentenced to die by the most extreme, shameful form of capital punishment ever devised — crucifixion. Galatians 3:13 reads, "Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree".

Jesus Christ died a curse. He died as a criminal. He died in open shame and disgrace. In the eyes of the world, Jesus Christ died a total disgrace!

And there stood His apostles — in stunned unbelief. Here was their hope. Here were 11 men that had forsaken all and followed this man. They believed in this man for 3 years. Can you imagine what was going on in their minds? Didn't He heal the sick? Didn't we see Him walk on water? Didn't we see Him raise people from the dead? Didn't we see Him still the raging storm? And to end like this? THAT NIGHT, THERE STOOD 11 DEFEATED AND CONFUSED MEN! They had given up everything for naught. And then to die like He did. Beaten. Smitten. Humiliated. Guilty. Blasphemer. A complete disgrace!
 

And Mark 14:50, says, "And they all forsook him, and fled".

There was the apostle Peter, the one who boasted, just days earlier, "Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee." (Matthew 26:35) There he was that night, standing in the mob, defeated, confused, and hurt. Jesus was dead! He was crucified as a blasphemer! One of the women saw Peter and said, "you were one of them, you was with Jesus of Nazareth". The Bible says "he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak." (Mark 14:71) Three times Peter denied the Lord, cursing and swearing, "I know not this man".
 

"And they all forsook him, and fled!"
 

BUT SOMETHING HAPPENED!

Something happened to that small band of frightened and humiliated men. . . Less than two months later — they went back into Jerusalem boldly preaching, at the threat of death, that — JESUS CHRIST WAS ALIVE!

Listen to Peter in Acts 2,:

"Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs. . . ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain. . . THIS JESUS HATH GOD RAISED UP, WHEREOF WE ALL ARE WITNESSES."

What transformed these fearful and confused men into fierce, bold lions?

Acts chapter 4:18-19, reads, "And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye."

And verse 20 reads, "For we cannot but speak the things which WE HAVE SEEN AND HEARD".
 

What had these men seen?
What had these men heard? 

What was it that beatings, threatenings, jail, torture and even death could not silence? In Acts 5, they put in jail and beaten — and verse 41 says "And they departed. . . rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name".

What had these 12 men seen that they would eventually die a horrible death for?

Friend, there's only one event in the history of this universe that could explain such a change.
 

THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST!

One theory suggests the apostles fabricated the resurrection. Two major problems: One, If the body of Jesus Christ was available, you'd better believe, the Roman authorities would have paraded His body for all to see. Christianity was spreading like a wild fire! And nothing could have quenched that flame quicker than the body of Jesus Christ!

An article, suggesting Jesus faked His death and resurrection, appeared in the prestigious British Journal of the Royal College of Physicians. The article makes the assertion, "the whole episode was planned by Jesus and his followers. . . that death would be feigned so that early removal from the cross might be secured."

Do you know the problem with that — if the resurrection of Jesus Christ was not true — there were 11 men that knew it!

Remember, friend — THESE MEN WERE EYEWITNESSES! They were there!

"Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were EYEWITNESSES. . ." Luke 1:2

"That which was from the beginning, which we have HEARD, which we have SEEN WITH OUR EYES, which we have LOOKED UPON, and our HANDS HAVE HANDLED. . ." 1 John 1:1

"For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were EYEWITNESSES of his majesty." 2 Peter 1:16

And these men went so far as seal their testimony with their blood! They died a horrible and martyrs death!
 

FOR A LIE. . .
KNOWING IT WAS A LIE! 

There is no way, these 12 men could have all been deceived.

For this reason — these 12 men not only died for a lie — and here is the catch — THEY KNEW IT WAS A LIE!
 

If the resurrection of Jesus Christ a lie
— THEY KNEW IT! 

You can not find a group of 11 men in the history of this universe who forsook all, were beaten, were jailed and even went so far as die for a lie — KNOWING it was a lie!
 

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE!

Michael Green, principal of St. John's College, Nottingham, writes concerning the apostles, ". . . You could imprison them, flog them, kill them, but you could not make them deny their conviction that on the third day he rose again." Dr. Greenleaf wrote, "IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE that the apostles could have persisted in affirming the truths they had narrated, had not JESUS CHRIST ACTUALLY RISEN FROM THE DEAD!"
 

And then there's the man called Saul of Tarsus.

Saul of Tarsus thought Jesus was a false messiah, a fake, a blasphemer. And to exterminate Christianity totally, became his passion! The Bible describes him:

"As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison." (Acts 8:3)

"And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, . . ." (Acts 9:1)

Saul of Tarsus was one of Christianitys' most rabid persecutors. One day traveling the dusty road to Damascus, Saul burning with vengeance, with documents authorizing him to capture all the followers of Jesus. But on the road to Damascus something happened to Saul of Tarsus. . .

"And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest". (Acts 9:3-5)

And on the road to Damascus, the greatest conversion in history took place! For Saul of Tarsus, among the greatest enemies of Jesus Christ, that ever lived — became the Apostle Paul — THE GREATEST CHRISTIAN THAT EVER LIVED!
 

What happened to this man?

What could so transform this man, that he completely dedicated his life to spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ? And was later beheaded at Rome in 67 A.D. for his faith in Jesus Christ.
 

There is only one possible explanation —
THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST!

Gilbert West and Lord Lyttleton, two Oxford students, believed Christianity was a "tale gone mad" and they determined to refute the Christian faith. Lyttleton resolved to disprove the conversion of Saul of Tarsus, and West would refute the resurrection of Jesus Christ. They figured a careful, rational, examination of the evidence would easily disprove the Christian faith.

But after examining the evidence — they both separately came to the opposite conclusion! Lyttleton concluded that Saul of Tarsus did, in fact, convert to the Apostle Paul through Jesus Christ. And Gilbert West concluded that the Resurrection of Jesus Christ was among the best established facts in all of history! West went on to write a book entitled, "Observations on the History and Evidences of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ".

Professor Thomas Arnold, former chair of history at Oxford, and author of the famous volumes, History of Rome, was skillfully educated in the study of historical facts. Professor Arnold, stated, "I have been used for many years to study the histories of other times, and to examine and weigh the evidence of those who have written about them, and I know of no one fact in the history of mankind which is PROVED BY BETTER AND FULLER EVIDENCE of every sort, than the great sign which God has given us that Christ died and rose again from the dead."

After investigating the evidence of the resurrection, Lord Darling, former Chief Justice of England, stated, ". . . there exists such overwhelming evidence, positive and negative, factual and circumstantial, that no intelligent jury in the world could fail to bring in a verdict that the resurrection story is true."

To deny the resurrection of Jesus Christ you have to close your eyes to the overwhelming facts of history.
 

And friend that's a very serious thing to do

If Jesus Christ actually rose from the dead — what He said about "after death" is not something to take lightly!

And Jesus Christ warned of a place called hell — over and over! He mentioned hell eight times more than heaven! In Luke 16:23, Jesus described a man that had died, and Jesus said, "And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments,. . ."
 

Jesus said plainly — the man was in hell!

Jesus went on to describe the man, in verse 24, ". . . for I am tormented in this flame."

Friend, Jesus Christ believed in a place of fire and torment called hell! 

What if Jesus Christ is Right?
 

Friend, I want to ask you the most important question you'll ever answer:

Have you ever received Jesus Christ as your Savior?

Not joining a church, not religion, not baptism, not good works, not sacraments — but trusted Jesus Christ and Him alone, as your Savior. If not, Friend you could be — one year, one month, one hour, one minute, one heartbeat — away from eternity in a lake of fire!

Revelation 20:15 says, "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."

Friend, God does not want you to go to hell. 2 Peter 3:9 says, "The Lord is. . . not willing that any should perish. . ." Jesus loved you so much He died on a rugged cross, to pay for YOUR sin, and to keep YOU out of hell! Revelation 1:5 says, ". . . Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood."

Friend, don't EXIT this message, until you MAKE SURE you've received Jesus Christ!

I assure you — if you die without Jesus Christ — it'll be the biggest mistake you'll ever make!
 

DO NOT TAKE THE CHANCE!
 

Friend, If you've never been saved, don't wait another minute!

FRIEND, YOU CAN BE SAVED THIS VERY MINUTE!

It's simple to be saved ...

  • Know you're a sinner.

"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" Romans 3:10

"... for there is no difference. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23

  • That Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins.

"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, ..." 1 Peter 2:24

"... Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood," Revelation 1:5

  • And the best way you know how, simply trust Him, and Him alone as your personal Savior.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

HERE IS HOW YOU CALL UPON THE LORD:

Do you admit that you are a GUILTY sinner, under the condemnation of God's LAW, deserving of Hellfire?

Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God (God in the flesh) who died upon the cross, sacrificing His precious blood to pay for your sins? Do you believe that Jesus was buried and rose again three days later?

That is the good news of the gospel... Jesus DIED, He was BURIED and He is RISEN!

If you'd like to be saved, simply come in your heart as a guilty sinner and BELIEVE upon the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Perhaps you'd feel comfortable praying a sinner's prayer as did the publican in Luke 18:13... “And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto Heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

Dear Jesus,
I admit that I am a sinner deserving of Hell. I believe that you died, were buried and rose again. Please forgive me of my sins and take me to Heaven when I die. I now believe upon You alone, apart from all self-righteous works and religion, as my personal Savior. Thank you. Amen.

Just as you were born physically to your parents, so you were born spiritually into the Family of God when you received Jesus! Please understand that we are not saved because we pray a prayer; but because we believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ. It is certainly appropriate to ask the Lord in prayer to forgive and save us; but it is our faith which prompts us to pray. You could just as easily believe in your heart upon the Lord to be saved, and not pray at all. Salvation is of the heart, as we read in Romans 10:10, For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness...”

It's not what you're doing that gets you to Heaven, it's where you're looking. Look to Jesus!

You do NOT have to be water baptized nor do anything to get to Heaven other than trust upon the Lord as your Savior. Romans 4:5 proclaims... But to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him (Jesus) that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. What a wonderful truth! Our faith is COUNTED for righteousness! There is NO self-righteousness involved in salvation. It is the gift of God. You see, we have no righteousness of our own to offer God. No amount of good can undo the bad we've done. Thus, Jesus paid a debt that He did not owe, because we owed a debt that we could not pay. Salvation is receiving, not giving. We are Sinners and Jesus is the Savior. Jesus is precious!

Unbelief is the only sin which can keep you out of Heaven. 

Just take God at His word and claim His salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. No church, no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember, God does the saving. All of it!

Trusting Jesus is meaningless without the cross. You must believe that Jesus died, was buried and rose again. 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 teaches that the gospel is the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

God's simple plan of salvation is: You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus Who died in your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you believe on Him as your crucified, buried, and risen Savior, you receive forgiveness for all of your sins and His gift of eternal salvation by faith.

You say, “Surely, it cannot be that simple!” Yes, that simple. It is scriptural; it is God's plan. My friend, believe on Jesus and receive Him as Savior today.

If you've never been saved, then now is the time to believe upon the name of Jesus, the Christ, that your sins will be blotted out forever and you can know that your name is written in Heaven.

Christ died for your sins. You are a sinner by nature and by choice. Jesus took your sins and charged them to His own record. He went to the cross and paid the penalty for your sins. He says if you're willing to receive Him in faith; He will transfer His payment to your debt, and His righteousness to your sins. He will impute to you His goodness, and impute to His own record your sin; if you in faith will trust Him as your Savior.

Romans 8:34, “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.”

JESUS IS RISEN!

JESUS IS RISEN!
      Bibleline Ministries Calvary Community Church

         Jesus is either a liar, or He is God who came in the person of Jesus Christ to die for your sins and mine.  In John 14:6, "Jesus saith unto him, l am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."  Some reject the claims of Christ and at the same time claim that He is a great moral teacher.  If Jesus lied about who He is, then He certainly could not have been a great moral teacher.  Instead, that would have made him one of the greatest deceivers of all time.  If he mistakenly thought that He was God, then He was a lunatic.  Only one answer can be the correct one.  The truth is that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who came to pay for the sins of the whole human race so that "whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!"
 

JESUS MADE IT PLAIN THAT HE
WAS TO DIE ON THE CROSS!

  1. Mark 8:31:  "And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again."

  2. Mark 9:12:  "And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought."

  3. Mark 9:31: " For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day."

  4. Mark 10:32-34: " And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid.  And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him, Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes. And they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles: And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him, and the third day he shall rise again."

  5. Mark 10:45: "For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many." 

JESUS MADE IT PLAIN THAT HE IS GOD!

         Jesus made His identity the focal point of His teachings.  The all-important question He put to those who followed Him was, "Whom do you say that, I the Son of Man, am?  When Peter answered and said, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God (Matthew 16:15-16)," Jesus was not shocked, nor did He rebuke Peter.  On the contrary, He commended Him!  READ Matthew 16:15-16; "He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?  And Simon and Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God."

         He made the claim explicitly, and His hearers got the full impact of His words.  We are told, "Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill Him, because He not only had broken the Sabbath but said also that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God (John 5:18)."

         In John 10:30, Jesus said, "I and My Father are one."  Immediately the Jews wanted to kill Him.  They replied, "For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God."

         Jesus clearly claimed attributes which only God has.  When a paralytic was let down through a roof and placed at His feet, He said; "Son, thy sins be forgiven thee."  This caused a great to-do among the scribes, who said in their hearts, "Why does this man thus speak blasphemies?  Who can forgive sins but God only?"  Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said to them, "Whether is it easier, to say to the sick of the palsy, 'thy sins be forgiven thee,' or to say, 'Arise, and take up thy bed and walk?"  Then He said, in effect, "But that you may know that I, the son of Man, have power on earth to forgive sins (which you rightly say God alone can do, but which is invisible), I'll do something you can see."  Turning to the palsied man, He commanded him, "Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way unto thine home (Mark 2:7-11)."

         When His life was at stake because of this claim, He asserted it to the high priest, who had put the question to Him directly: "Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?"  He said, "I am."  Then he continued, "and ye shall see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of Heaven."  The high priest tore his clothes and said, "What need we of any further witnesses?  Ye have heard of blasphemy (Mark 14:61-64)."

         So close was His connection with God that Jesus equated a man's attitude toward Himself with the man's attitude toward God.

  1. John 8:19:  "Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father?  Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also."  To know Jesus was to know God.

  2. John 12:45:  "And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me."  To see Jesus was to see God.

  3. John 12:44:  "Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me."  To believe in Jesus was to believe in God.

  4. Mark 9:37:  "Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me."  To receive Jesus was to receive God.

  5. John 15:23:  "He that hateth me hateth my Father also."  To hate Jesus was to hate God.

  6. John 5:23:  "That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father.  He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him."  To honor Jesus was to honor God.
     

JESUS MADE IT PLAIN THAT SALVATION
IS BY FAITH ALONE IN HIM ALONE

  1. John 3:16-18: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."

  2. John 5:24: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life."

  3. John 6:39: "And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day."

  4. John 11:25-26: "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  And whosoever  liveth and believeth in me shall never die.  Believest thou this?

  5. John 14:6: "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life,:  no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
     

IT IS PLAIN FR0M THE SCRIPTURES THAT WITHOUT FAITH ALONE IN CHRIST AS SAVIOR
YOU WILL GO TO HELL!

Acts 4:12: "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

         If you have not trusted in Jesus Christ as your personal savior, friend, then you need to do so.  The very moment that you trust in Him as your only hope of heaven, God saves you and you receive eternal life.  If you have not trusted Jesus Christ as your savior, friend, then you are living dangerously.  At any moment you could die and then you would be forever lost.  There is no second chance after death.  "He that believeth on him in the name of the only begotten Son of God (John 3:18)."

         If you are saved, then you need to proclaim this message and live your life for the Lord, (not to be saved, but because you are saved).
