Not Only my God by eJcalado Not Only my God by eJcalado
VERSÃO EM PORTUGUÊS---> [link]

The most beautiful and perfect friendship that could ever be....
Music that goes well with this drawing: [link]

^^

The problem with Christianity is that people treat it as a theoretical religion instead of what it really is: Christianity is centered around JESUS, God, the creator of the Universe, dwelling with humanity, not only as a saviour, as a lord, as king, but also as a FRIEND!

He's right by our side, each and every second. He is constantly knocking at our heart's door and wanting to have dinner with us (Revelations 3:20). Jesus is called EMANUEL, which means "God with us". It's not God with José, not God with the Christians, not God with the good guys, not God with the whites, not God with whatever... It's God with US! Jesus called us his friends, and he gave his life and resurrected so that we could be forever friends with him, regardless of our past sins. He paid the price in that cross, now we can talk to God ALL THE TIME!

It's real, and it gets more real as soon as you start not to treat it like a religion, but as a deep friendship, in which He's always by your side, guiding your ways, leading you to live forever in his presence. He’s there now, by your side, why won’t you start you friendship with Him now? Why don’t you just open your heart to Him and let the most beautiful friendship of all begin?

"[Jesus said:] I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. " John 15:15

God bless you all!

About the artwork itself:

Handrawed and coloured in Photoshop CS4, scanned at 1200dpi (don't EVER do that! It's too big!)

Maybe I took some inspiration from Disney's Wall-e...

And the girl, by the way, is my beatiful mom...

Jesus' purpose in his coming here to earth, his purpose on his sacrifice was to redeem mankind of it's sin, that whoever believes in him would be UNITED with God again. Sin separates us from God, as the Bible states. Jesus came to make the believers forgiven, by being punished in our place, for our sins. His whole purpose was to make us CLOSE to God again, so, if we deny living that friendship, we don't have a true faith yet.

"The problem with Christianity is that people treat it as a theoretical religion instead of what it really is..." Which is why I do the following:

1: Don't say "I *believe* Christ is Lord and the real creator of heaven and earth." That word, "believe" almost seems to have a verbal emphasis that seems to say "I say Christ is Lord and the real creator of heaven and earth, but I have a feeling in the back of my mind that he's fake." I just say it plainly like "Christ is Lord and the real creator of heaven and earth" or " I *know*..." Stating it as a fact.

2: Do NOT call it a religion. Religion might be the same term as "game" or "second life," as many millions now days are taking practice in. Once again, calling it a religion is saying it's all fake and just a silly game to play after work/school. This is fact, this is reality. Let's be more to the point and take it seriously, folks.

Yeah, I agree with all you said. I don't also like to call our relationship a "belief" because it is not just is. "Belief" is too vague and useless, it's like "I believe that humans never landed on moon" -> It just don't add anything to our life. But I have to call it a belief not when preaching, but when dealing with atheists who can't respect other's point of view. But I know and preach that Christianism is not a religion, but a relationship.

God bless you, brother/sister.

Brother.:nod: I'd personally still not call it a belief, even around such atheists. If they did not show such respect, that's their problem. But anyways, thanks. YHWH bless you, too.

WoW! I liked that song!

Now, it also remembers me of "Quem Sou Eu", from a Brazilian singer who does a portuguese version of "Who am I", fom Casting Crowns.

They did a brazilian version of that song? o.o that should be interesting

Of course they did!
Music, mainly gospel music (as we call it here), has no bounds such as language. For example, I`ve already heard "One Way" in English, Portuguese, Japanese, and I have the feeling that I`ve also heard it in German and Spanish...

And though sometimes we can perfectly understand another language, the feeling is completely different from listening to songs in your own languages, mainly when the transalations and adapatations are well done.



Anyway, here it goes the Brazilian version: [link]

The lyrics mean pretty much the same.
I hope you like it!
