"...say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and [to] my God, and your God." John 20:17 Most people are totally unaware of this little verse in the Gospel of John. These are the very words of Jesus. He is speaking with two female disciples after the resurrection. Is it possible that Christianity, as we know it today, is a false teaching? Conflict and Christianity explores Jesus' nature and mission; early followers, the four gospels, and the following Christian Doctrines: Christ/Deity of Christ, Trinity, Atonement, Salvation, the Second Coming, Grace, Faith, Original Sin, New Covenant, Heaven, and Hell. Check out the amazing things that this man Jesus preaches, like: "forgive and be forgiven", "I said you are gods", "enter the Kingdom of Heaven", "seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness"; or "following the Spirit is like following the wind". Take a peak inside this exciting but controversial book. And don't take B. Daniel Peterson's word for it, break out your own Bibles and learn the truth for yourselves. Go to the source of it all- where it all started- Jesus of Nazareth.
