The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

Behind every idea, religious thought or world view, is a person who has originated that way of viewing life. That thought will not supersede its founder. It is foolish to follow a religion, a spirituality, or way of thinking without looking at the person who brought it to life.

This quote by Jesus Christ is the true measurement of all religion. All religions stand or fall on their founders, and not on what their followers portray the founder or religion to be. What followers practice and believe about their religion may change at various times, but history teaches us, that it is inevitable for all religions to default back to the heart and practice of its founder.

Jn 1:1-5 Jesus, more than a Prophet and more than a Mortal

John 1:1-5 (NIV) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it

{We  know that the ‘Word’ here is speaking of Jesus.} 

  1. Jesus is eternal 
  2. Jesus is separate from God
  3. Jesus is with God from the beginning 
  4. Jesus is God 
  5. Through Jesus everything was made 
  6. In Jesus there is life and light 
  7. Everything that is dark & sinful can not understand Jesus (It is darkness and sin that keeps us from understanding Jesus. Ask Him to bring to light the dark areas in your life)

*** Comment : The depth of truth in these few passages and their implications are profound. Take time to meditate on them with a good commentary and a logical mind. ***
