Thoughts about: but because you are not of this world?

Jesus Christ said in John 15:18-19: "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you."

These are clear words of our Lord. But what is the reality? How many who claim to be Christians are actually hated by the world? How many who claim to be Christians, still believe unbroken to the revealed word of God in the Bible? To find answers, we compare again, what the world teaches us and what God us teaches in His Word! Then we look at, which teaching will be do today believed!

The world teaches us that the earth and all life millions of years ago by a "Big Bang" have emerged. This doctrine is widely accepted and is taught in schools! A great many people who call themselves Christians, are agree with this theory.

God tells us, that He had created the earth and all life, in seven days with 24 hours. When you study in the Bible, then you can find out that this was done, around six thousand years ago. This doctrine will be rejected by many people, also of so-called Christians.
Both of these Event history cannot be proved, because no today alive human, has personally seen. Thus, there is no eyewitnesses in both cases; therefore is needs the faith!

The world teaches us, that the human is descended from apes, and has evolved over thousands of years, to what he is today. This doctrine is also widely accepted and is taught to our children. There are Christians that also believe in this theory.

God teaches us, that he had formed man out of clay, made ​​him godlike and breathed into him the breath of life. He also teaches, that he has done this in a day, so that, the human had to not needed to develop; because since his creation he was always what he is today. Even this doctrine today will be rejected by many people, even many Christians.
Here again we have the same dilemma. Of both teaching, there are no living witnesses, so here also faith is needed!

Because in these examples, the faith is always necessary, I want to you explain again, the importance of the concept of faith: "The English word Faith, is in the here discussed sense used as a translation of the Greek noun pistis with the basic meaning „loyalty, trust." The associated verb is pisteuein ("be faithful, trust"). The primary meaning was: "I put trust in ... I tie my existence at ... I'm true to ...". The word therefore aims confidence, obedience (compare: vow, betrothal), faithfulness. “  (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glaube)

A prayer of Christians begins with the words: "I believe in God ..." Is this today really the case?
The Christian world has taught since the year 321 after Christ that Sunday is the Lord's Day and the day of rest is. This secular doctrine can be proved on the basis of history. The world and so-called Christians are agree with this theory, and on Sundays are not working.

God has been teaching since of creation; remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Six days you shall labour and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt on this day not working do, and thy son, and thy daughter, thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and your cattle, nor your stranger within your gates. For in six days the LORD made ​​the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. This doctrine we do not find, in history books of the human; we find only in the Bible. The early Christians sanctified this until such time, as a church law that was decided at the Council of Laodicea (343-381 AD), it forbade them under threat of punishment. This in turn can be found in the history books. ("Christians should not be idly by kind of Jews on the Sabbath, but rather should work on that day. Christians have to give preference the Lord's Day (Sunday) and rest as Christians, if they must not work. But if they invented as Judaizing, they are of Christ excluded. ")

I believe in God? Is that with to them so, or they believe the world?

At the end of my today article, I would like due to some criticism I've gotten, to emphasize once again: I have never and will never claim that my posts is the only correct interpretation of God's Word. I do see my posts not as interpretation. I am aware that I am only a sinful man, and like everyone else, I need the mercy of God. My posts are thoughts and inspirations that I have during Bible study and prayer, and should serve as an inspiration for his own Bible study.

As so often, I want to emphasize again how important it today is to consider itself in the Bible, all what you heard and read. Every person takes the time for what he loves the most. Everyone which loves Christ, should take daily time, which he spends with Bible reading and prayer.

Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. Ford all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you. Amen (1. Peter 1, 13-25)
