“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” I John 5:12
I don’t know if it can get any simpler than this, if you have Jesus Christ you have life, if you don’t have Him you are dead. It is Christ that brings life, not religion, not commitments to a church. Since the only way to have real life is for the Spirit of Christ to dwell in us. Why then are there so many other things that ministers insist the church has to offer? Some preach Jesus + (plus sign). That means that Jesus is not enough and that you have to add something to Him for life to be realized. Some preach Jesus , (comma) or ; (semicolon) as if there is more that needs to follow Him to make Him effective. Others preach Jesus ? (question mark) doubting if He is really all we need. Let’s get our grammar straight, it is Jesus . (period) and Jesus ! (exclamation mark). End of sentence.
