Some thoughts on Christians, others Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary identifies a Christian as one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ, Christianity, the religion derived from Jesus Christ based on the Bible as sacred scripture.

When the word non is added to Christian, non means not, other than, reverse, absence of, unimportant, worthless, lacking the usual positive characteristics of the thing specified. The comment was said about other denominations. There is a book that is called the Holy Bible, God’s word. We should read and study it so we can be intelligent when we are discussing prayer. Ephesians 4th chapter beginning at the 4th-7th verse: “There is one body and one spirit as ye are called in one hope of your calling. One Lord, one faith, and one baptism. One God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in you all.”

Read St. John 14th chapter 9-21: “Jesus told us to ask in His name when we pray.” Denominations were added by man, not Jesus Christ. Only Christians believe in Jesus Christ, that He died and rose on the third day and declared that all power in heaven and earth is given unto Him. There is a song, “Because He Lives,” written by Williams Gaither. It begins, “God sent His Son They call Him Jesus.”

To all non-Christians please find this song and read the words. Could someone please tell me who the non-Christian is praying to? Someone in the board meeting said this should happen because no one is praying but Christians.

Calling all Christians, stand up for Jesus. He stood up for us on calvary.
