|JUST ONE OF THE BOYS |

There was a movie where a girl took her twin brother’s place at a boy’s school, and the theory was no one could tell she was a girl. Notwithstanding there was some difficulty during the locker room scenes. As the story went on; she was just one of the boys.
Today there are groups throughout the world trying to reduce Christ to being just one of the boys.
Below just a sampling of different kinds of religious groups, all have their personal “inventor” for that is the best word I can think of to describe their creators.

Hare Krishna, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormonism, Transcendental Meditation, Theosophy, EST, The Unification Church, "Moonies" Christian Science, Unity, Astrology, Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Confucianism Taoism, Shintoism, Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Islam, Sikhism, Atheism, Agnosticism, and Skepticism, Secular Humanism, and Existentialism to name a few.
While some have all but excluded Christ from their belief system others have decided to reduce him to "Just one of the boys." Islam, Mormonism, Jehovah witnesses and Unity have remade him into another image suitable for their taste.
The Bible has a different take on this issue;
John 1:1-3 Before the world began, the Word (Jesus) was there. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was there with God in the beginning. Everything was made through him, and nothing was made without him.
Jesus isn't "Just one of the boys" he is not only the MAIN man he is the ONLY man.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
In a way I feel somewhat slighted because these want-a-be Christs that are showing up can't do squat, and still people flock to them hoping for some supernatural occurrence to happen.
2 Timothy 3:5 Who have a form of God-worship and are far from his power; remove from you those who are such.
2 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus and there is only one book and that is the Bible.
Give me the real Jesus as found in the Bible, God’s Holy Word.
Jesus is the ONLY one who can truely change lives!!
