  • Who was Jesus Christ?
    Recently, a local man told me how Jesus was less than God, according to his beliefs.
    This pained me deeply because Christ is above all.
    Most professing Christians believe he was the son of God who died on the cross for our sins.
    We know of his life story how he raised the dead, walked on water, healed the sick, and even forgave sin.
    But did you know that he is actually God? Don’t take my word for it, let’s see what some of the scriptures tell us about the supremacy of Jesus.
