Why the name Shores of Truth?
The ocean is large and deep touching every continent on the earth. Each land mass is different and each shore, where the ocean meets the land, is different and yet the same ocean touches them all. Some shores have sand and different colors of sand, while others are only rocks or cliffs. The ocean waves approach and move differently at each shore as well. God is deep and there is a lot of truth revealed about Him in the Bible. Each item posted on this website may provide a different view point, but points to the same large body of truth found in the depths of God.
Who is Jesus Christ?
Jesus Christ is God. As referenced by these scriptures:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
I and the Father are one. John 10:30
For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form Colossians 2:9
Jesus Christ was sinless and did nothing wrong and took our sins for us on the cross. Sin separates us from God. Reference:
WHO COMMITTED NO SIN, NOR WAS ANY DECEIT FOUND IN HIS MOUTH. 1 Peter 2:22
and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. 1 Peter 2:24
But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. Isaiah 59:2
Why Connect with God, and Why Through Jesus Christ?
God is the creator of everything, including us. He is the source of all goodness. God is love and desires that everyone live under the shadow of His goodness. This is a spiritual thing, however it greatly effects our being (body, soul, and spirit) and our physical well being. Jesus Christ is the only way to God and the true path to spiritual awareness. As we commit our lives to following Him, we become like family to Him granting us full access to Him now and in eternity. Read these below for quick reference:
The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, Exodus 34:6-7a
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6
For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:15-16
