    Why are you scared? Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the Son of God. He is our Redeemer. The Holy Bible teaches us that Jesus Christ's mother was Mary, His father on earth was Joseph, that He was born in Bethlehem and raised in Nazareth, and labored with Joseph as a carpenter. When he turned 30, He began a three-year ministry of teaching, blessing, and healing the people of the Holy Land. He also organized His Church and gave His apostles "power and authority" (Luke 9:1) to assist in His work. But what do we mean when we say He is the Savior of the world? The Redeemer? Each of these titles point to the truth that Jesus Christ is the only way by which we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. Jesus suffered and was crucified for the sins of the world, giving each of God’s children the gift of repentance and forgiveness. Only by His mercy and grace can anyone be saved. His subsequent resurrection prepared the way for every person to overcome physical death as well. These events are called the Atonement. In short, Jesus Christ saves us from sin and death. For that, he is very literally our Savior and Redeemer. In the future Jesus Christ will return to reign on earth in peace for a thousand years. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and He will be our Lord forever.

    A careful reading of the Gospel well tell you that Christ Apostle's were to be fishers of men. The question is who are they fishing for? My understanding is they were fishing for God the Father, and Christ say's he was thankful for the one's the Father gave him. One Gospel say's God will bring you to Christ and Christ will bring you to God, therefore for whom you serve basically depends on the Father and not Christ. Christ always submitted himself to the Father and those who today believe that Christ is God, which is what's meant by the statement the only way to God is through Christ because you only end up knowing Christ, are sadly mistaken. I put no limits on God the Father, as Christ say's with God all is possible.

    The expression fishing for men, im not sure how to explain. Jesus knew they were fishers, he used that expression to let the apostles understand who they were going to look for. As for the Apostoles, also fishing for men Jesus meant by Preaching. He wanted the Apostoles to find people who were interested on the Bible. and help them understand it. Talking about, God bringing Jesus and Jesus bringing god that means, about the prayer. Lets say the prayer we do is just like a letter. the letter is to god, lets say. To let Jehovah god recieve it we use, Jesus as the stamp, lets say. So that has to do more about the prayer.

    The question come to the understanding of worship, most people think the worship is just ritual and weekly service. To worship someone or something means to follow their principles and understandings. As mentioned above about letters, the old testament is a letter from God, and according to the prophets mercy is preeminent in which Christ exemplified. Therefore to follow God and Christ is to worship them, not any particular religion.

    He is your father and he is loving why would you fear that. Only fear shaming your father, and live by his word truthfully with all your spirit.

    The Old Testament say's "man is made in God's image" which actually means that as man goes through life he creates a image of God inside him. Christ said it a little different "I could do nothing unless the Father shows me first". This goes along with the initial meaning of fear "conscious or aware" and the Old Testament statement "Fear the Lord thy God". All this was hard back then and even harder today with all the din of different voices today. I'm not entirely sure with all the legal changes today, laws are made to be enforced by power and might, but I have faith in the Prophet's statement "God will not conquer with power and might but by spirit". Stay the course and follow God and Christ and leave the rest to them.

    You probably won't find him. He died about 2000 years ago (if he even existed, something we unfortunately can't prove).

    Maybe so, but if you don't look you'll never find them. This is the problem all paths lead to somewhere and they may not all lead to the same place. Ones life depends on what one is looking for, a saying I'm familiar with is "what's in the mind the body follows" and one always must become aware of corruption or pollution. I don't believe the "Ends justify the means" but the "Means justify the ends" therefore where someone ends up may entirely depend on what they did in life.

    My friend, there is no reason to be scared! Jesus loves you! And you are doing the right thing by choosing Him! Just say: "Father God, I ask you to forgive me of my sins according to 1 John 1:9. And I believe in your Son Jesus, that he died on cross, and paid the full price for all my sins. Jesus, I confess you, Lord over my life, and as you help me I will follow you all the days of my life! Amen!" Now if you prayed that, you are saved!! And I'll see you in heaven! Jesus is Lord!! Unfortunately, a lot of people mock and make fun of Jesus and Christians! It's heartbreaking. But true. Jesus isn't dead! He's in heaven right now with God! I hope you pray that prayer. It'll change your life!

    Christ is my "Friend and Brother" according to the Gospel, "No greater Love than a friend who gives his for you" and "Who is my mother, brother and sister? Those in Gods will". This is what I mean when I say "My Lords", I place no limits on the Father who may place limits on the Son, as Christ said "All is possible with God".
