“Jesus Christ came to die for the sins of mankind!” cries the preacher on Sunday morning. And he’s right. But why so little understanding about the many other reasons Christ came to this Earth 2,000 years ago?
In Matthew 16:18, for example, Jesus said, “I will build my church.” Why, after 4,000 years of human history, was it necessary to build something new like the Church? And why did Jesus select just 12 disciples for special training and preparation in laying the “foundation” for the Church? And why, since that time, have nearly 2,000 years passed without any sign of Christ returning to this Earth as He promised He would?
