He Really Is an Indivisible One

May we present to you this brief quote from Dr. Michael Servetus, "I will not say that He (Jesus Christ) is the eternal son of God, but rather the son of the eternal God!"

Protestant reformer Servetus (1511-1553) was a strict monotheist theologian and is credited with being the first European to describe the pulmonary circulation of the blood, and a scholar in the following fields:

Biblical treatise
Language translation

We must agree with Servetus that Jesus Christ was not a demigod, Arian Christ, Socinian Christ, or Trinitarian Christ, but rather the patreum ipsius, the Father himself, who came into the world to save it! Isaiah 9:6; John 14:8,9.

Don't you see what God was trying to do with this da Vinci of theologians at the very beginning of the Reformation?

Please note this scouting report prior to the 2000 NFL draft:

"Poor build. Skinny. Lacks great physical stature & strength. Lacks mobility & ability to avoid the rush. Lacks a strong arm. Looks like he's never entered a weight room. Can't drive the ball downfield. Doesn't throw a tight spiral. System type player who can get exposed if forced to ad lib. Gets knocked down easily."

Now the results 19 years later after almost not being drafted:

9 Super Bowls (record)
6 Super Bowl wins (record)
4 Super Bowl MVP awards (most valuable player) awards (record)
3 League MVP awards
8 consecutive AFC championship games (record)
14 Pro Bowl appearances
16 division titles (record)
Most career wins-232
17 years starting quarterback
Oldest quarterback to win the super bowl-41 years old
Longest touchdown pass in NFL history-99 yards

It is Tom Brady.

Of the 1000's of full time, paid NFL scouts, analysts, sportswriters and all the owners, GM's, & coaches combined, NOBODY SAW THIS KID'S HEART.

I am reminded of former Minnesota District Superintendent James Merrick's comments in a sermon-"A man is what he will become in the eyes of God a long time before people ever even BEGIN to realize who or what he is."

Our Most Basic Common Link

We all realize that Apostolic Pentecostals live, look, and act differently than the rest of our society and it can be very intimidating for some of us to witness and reach those who are not like us. But in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all have a creator. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. We all need a savior. And we are all mortal.
