Whom you hear determines who you are

Recent two cartoon posts in our website show 'Jesus is God and our Creator'. This was witnessed by Disciple John in the Gospel of John.

Now we find this fact is supported by what Jesus Himself said in John 8:58.

  • 58 ‘Very truly I tell you,’ Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born, I am!’

The fact that Jesus is supreme is important to people whose religion is Buddhism (Founder: Siddhartha)  or  Muslim (Founder: Muhammad) because Jesus is superior than the founders of any other religions. Jesus is worthy of our worship but the founders of other religions are not the object of worship.

IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT RELIGIOUS GROUP WE BELONG TO

Very interesting thing is that it is written that there was conflict between Jesus and leaders of Jewish religion. This shows Jesus is not just the founder of religion who wants you to become religious like Jews, Buddhists, Muslims or Hindus. Jesus is the true example to follow, who has living relationship with God.

Jews thought they believed God but Jesus said to them they didn't know God. See John 7:28b, and John 7:29.

  • You do not know him, 9 but I know him because I am from him and he sent me.’

And Jesus hears God:

  • what I have heard from him I tell the world.’ (John 8:26b)
  • Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.’ (John 8:47)

In conclusion, who we really are is not up to what religious group we belong to but depending on whom we hear moment by moment.

We think we live independently by our own decision.  According to Jesus, we either hear from God, or want to carry out the devil's desire (John 8:44) and do not hear or believe the truth (John 8:45, 47). If we belong to God, we will hear Him (John 8:47) and love His children (1 John 5:1, John 8:42).
