    Christians accept Jesus Christ as the son of God by faith. I accept the fact that I have a brain , actually, by faith. I have never SEEN my brain, but the proof is there, because my five senses, brain and heart life are alive! His miracles and our faith in his word are all we need. " Without faith, it is impossible to please Him! " Sir, does that answer your question?

    One of the biggest hurdlesof all is that Jesus,the Christ, is the Son of God. But why?Are we not Spirit as our essence. "The flesh profiteth nothing"Jesus stated plainly this truth because that was his "state of being" and what his miracles certified.As we know,the spirit is not subject to death,unless it is for Judgement of the Father. "Fear him who can cast into Hell, where there is only death
