What We Believe
I want to thank you for indulging me during my year of "Grace." The weekly newsletter has been monthly in 2021.  While I know many of you want to receive it more often, in this year of "grace" I'm taking more time to do less. I thank you for your patience, prayers, love, and support. It wasn't easy for me to make the necessary adjustments to grow deeper in my faith and nurture my relationship with God. I'm a "doer" and I'm learning to do only what God wants me to do and when he wants me to do it. I’d like the weekly newsletter to return in 2022, Lord willing. Until then, I hope these monthly reminders are a blessing to you and help you learn more about Jesus and develop a closer relationship with God. 

Which brings me to this month's topic....  I recently had a conversation with someone I love dearly. My friend is Christian. She believes in Jesus. She believes Jesus died for her sins. She believes that he rose from grave and ascended to heaven. She even believes that Jesus sits as the right hand of God. Now, here's the astounding part. She DOES NOT believe that Jesus is the only way to know God. So, for this month, I want to talk to you a little bit about Jesus and what we believe about him.
Jesus is The Way
Some time ago, I wrote "4 Reasons Why I believe in Jesus" . We may all have different reasons for coming to Jesus and a different  "why" for following him. However, as Christians, what we believe about Jesus should fundamentally be the same. 

After having the conversation with my friend, I was disturbed. She had not spent much time reading her Bible. Consequently, she didn't realize what I’m about to tell you.

Here's what we believe...

There is only one God. God is omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing) and omnipresent (all present). If you believe other gods exist then you aren't really a Christian. 

The Bible is true. It is the inspired word of God. Yes, the Bible was written by humans. What book have you read that wasn't? While you may have questions about the Bible, if you don't believe it to be God's word then you aren't really a Christian. 

Jesus is the son of God. He was a real person on earth. He died for our sins and God resurrected him from the dead. #BecauseJesus we have been forgiven of all for our sins. This is the best part. If you don't believe this then you aren't really a Christian.

Jesus is the only way to God. In John 14:6 Jesus says, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me." If you think that there are other routes to heaven or getting to know God, then you aren't really a Christian. 

Now that you know what we believe, let me tell you about my why.  You can read more on Shine TYC but here's the quick answer:

1. The integrity of the gospels. When a bunch of people can agree on a bunch of details, even if they interpret them differently, it's usually true. 

2. The reality of Jesus. Jesus was a real person documented in history by non-Christians. 

3. The reality of the resurrection. Where's the body? 

4.The reality of my life. If you've read TOYI ELIZABETH you'll see that my faith has been integral to my survival and instrumental to the way I live. Christianity works! I'm a witness. 
Christians believe that the only way to God is through Jesus Christ.

Do you believe this?

Toyi Elizabeth was born during a frightening electrical storm in Appalachia, the kind that makes people go to church the following Sunday. Exhausted from the ever present storms in her life, Toyi Elizabeth makes a valiant attempt at suicide that was thwarted by a determined doctor with heterochromia and a nurse from the Black church. Upon waking, she is burdened by the story to be told. A life-long victim who now sees herself as a survivor, Toyi Elizabeth offers a memoir of heartbreaking historicity, healing wisdom, and delightful wit.
