In order to be accepted by God, we must be as good as God is. Before God, we all stand naked, helpless, and hopeless in ourselves. No amount of good living will get us to heaven or give us eternal life. What then is the solution? God is not only perfect holiness whose holy character we can never attain to on our own or by our works of righteousness but He is also perfect love and full of grace and mercy. Because of His love and grace, He has not left us without hope and a solution. This is the good news of the Bible, the message of the gospel. Romans who was appointed the Son-of-God-in-power according to the Holy Spirit by the resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans He was given over because of our transgressions and was raised for the sake of our justification. John But to all who have received him--those who believe in his name--he has given the right to become God's children.

John For this is the way God loved the world: he gave his one and only Son that everyone who believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. The one who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God. This means we must each come to God the same way: 1 as a sinner who recognizes his sinfulness, 2 realizes no human works can result in salvation, and 3 relies totally on Christ alone by faith alone for our salvation. He communicates a strong message of how Jesus is greater than religion.

It is message this generation needs an In all reality this is a book I believe everyone needs to read. It is message this generation needs and actually deep down wants to hear. This is your chance to take your faith to a whole new level! I encourage everyone to pick up a copy and when you are done reading, pass it along to someone else. But this is your warning…you will be challenged, you will have to make a choice to face fears and your perspective of people and sin may need altered.
While the book does discuss some heavy topics it is a VERY encouraging book. Many times are I was reading I was laughing, smiling and literally having a good time with the book. I felt as if my life was interacting with the words written. The message is a message of life! It is worth the time, the money and investment. It is a message you will want to share with your loved ones. Happy reading! Jul 15, Morgan rated it it was amazing. Jefferson Bethke really does a good job breaking down the cultural stereotypes that have been formulated about Jesus, religion, and Christians.
God's Plan of Salvation
He explains why we should be looking at Jesus instead of mere humans when we seek to find an example to follow. As humans, we struggle with hypocrisy, and at times this fog clouds the window through which we view Jesus. Jefferson challenges the reader to make a conscious decision to look to Jesus instead of people and a particular religion.
Christianity Jefferson Bethke really does a good job breaking down the cultural stereotypes that have been formulated about Jesus, religion, and Christians. Christianity and a personal walk with God is not about a set of dos and don'ts.
Salvation in Christianity
It's about having an innate desire to do what Jesus wants you to do because that desire is in your heart. Religion is about rituals. Christianity is about love.
As a Christian we have this misconception that there are rating systems by which we are judged. This myth is shattered throughout this book. Bethke explains that Jesus is more than just doing the right things and being good enough. This book challenged me personally to look at my Christian walk deeply and check my motives for doing what I do. Is it just to be seen of men? Or am I doing things out of a heartfelt desire to show my love to God.
Oct 14, Michael rated it it was amazing. I was heavily involved with college ministry when Jeff's video was first released. I enjoyed it and it started a heavy debate among some of us in the church as to his definition of religion or religious people. This book clearly explains what he meant and how it is dangerous to be religious even if you are religious against religious people yea figure that out! While reading the book you can tell that the book is very personal to the author.
He puts a lot of personal stories even stories abou I was heavily involved with college ministry when Jeff's video was first released. He puts a lot of personal stories even stories about writing the book.
Most of the book feels like a long blog post. Some people like that familiar tone and some don't. I thought it was a nice change from the books that I normally read. It is an easy read and has sparked a lot of discussion with my friends and family. I hope that this book becomes as large as his video and they discuss it everywhere. More importantly then the book is the context of the book and that is the grace of Jesus.
The message in the book is clear: Stop trying to work for your salvation. Jesus already completed that on the cross. Accept His grace. Now go and grace others. Mar 29, ReGina rated it really liked it Shelves: religion-and-spirituality. So, this was definitely my kind of Christian theology book. I get very annoyed with watered-down, super sanitized versions of Christ as well as self-serving, issue-based versions of Christianity.
This book very much identified with my understanding and relationship with Christ as well as the reasons I believe in being a Christ follower. That being said, I think this is still somewhat surface. However, when scratching as some deeply embedded views, surface is actually okay.

I didn't ha So, this was definitely my kind of Christian theology book. I didn't have the same types of church and Christian experiences as Bethke, so I don't know if I was ever in the same place to which he often refers.
But it's still an easily identifiable place, and you get it. It's not over your head, and it's very approachable, regardless of your beliefs. That's hard to do, and Bethke does it extremely well. I'm going to have this as a book club discussion with my church group; it should inspire a lot of dialogue. If you think that Christianity as it is often presented on a platter is hypocritical and you think many Christians are doing everything except looking like Christ, this is a good book for you.
Nov 05, Mark rated it it was amazing Shelves: own-but-not-read. This was a really fresh look at Jesus. Each one of us is an important part of the church body and we need each other to work properly. Feb 17, Halley Hopson rated it it was amazing Shelves: , christian.
