Philippians 2:5-11 “Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
While the great majority of people will say they believe in Jesus, I wonder how many know the Jesus of Scripture? I fear that many have based their understanding of Jesus on what they have been told by a Discovery Channel documentary or from a Newsweek or Time cover story about Jesus in which often liberal theologians and educational experts gather together to define Jesus from a darkened understanding and unbelieving heart.
