MAKE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS, NOT CHRISTIANITY! Shortly before Jesus concluded His physical ministry on earth He told His eleven apprentices, “GO AND MAKE FOLLOWERS OF ALL PEOPLE … TEACH THEM TO OBEY EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE TOLD YOU” [Mt 28:19-20 IC]. Jesus was talking about Himself as He had just finished announcing that God had given Him “ALL AUTHORITY IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH” [Mt 20:18 NI]. Jesus was telling them to “MAKE FOLLOWERS” of Jesus not followers of Christianity or one of the many religions in Christianity, not followers of the Bible, not followers of the teachings of Paul. Jesus makes it very clear that He wants His followers to learn “TO OBEY EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE TOLD YOU”, to obey Jesus not to obey some religion or some religious leader. When we obey Jesus, we learn to obey God or as Jesus says, “OBEY MY FATHER IN HEAVEN” [Mt 7:21 TL]. At another time Jesus told some believers “IF YOU CONTINUE TO OBEY MY TEACHING, YOU ARE TRULY MY FOLLOWERS” [Jn 8:31 IC].  Do you teach people to follow and obey Jesus? click to continue teaching Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
