Expect opposition when you follow Jesus.

Luke 23:12 NIrV
That day Herod and Pilate became friends. Before this time they had been enemies.

Enemies of the gospel unite with each other against Jesus. It is to be expected. If you follow Jesus, you will be mocked. The unsaved are at enmity against God, so they find common ground persecuting those who follow him.

The Gospel

Have you heard Christ died for our sins, and God raised Him from the dead? Did you know God saves you from hell and gives you eternal life through faith in this finished work alone, not your merits (Jn. 3:16; 1 Cor. 15:1-3; Eph. 2:8-10; 2 Thess. 1:8-9)? This is so man cannot boast, and God alone gets the glory (Eph. 2:8-9).


The grand purpose of creation is to bring glory and pleasure to God in Christ (Eph. 1:1-10; Rev. 4:11). The gospel of Christ's death and resurrection for our sins, achieves this goal by magnifying God's grace and mercy towards undeserving sinners. The purpose of faithguard, is to glorify God, by defending and confirming the gospel of Jesus Christ.
