WEEK 3: EARTH ROLES

It may be that even before Christ was the life of the world he was the light of the world. The one thing all men have in common is the light of Christ – the deep-seated, subconsciously remembered connection of our spirits to his. This light separates right from wrong, inherent good from inherent evil. Some call it conscience, some call it inborn morality, some deny it all together, but all of us have it (at least until it is snuffed out by sustained evil or intentional wickedness).

Jesus Christ is, has always been, and will always be the God of the earth which he created (always with is loyalty to and his direction from his Father and our Father). He was (and is) Jehovah, the God of the Old Testament, who spoke with Moses and Abraham, and who gave us the ten items of loving council from a wise Father, ten ways to live together successfully and be happy: the Ten Commandments.

Then, in the meridian of time, the God of this world came to live on this world – to take on flesh, to take on the joys and the difficulties and choices, and to take upon himself our sins. He came as the literal Son of God, the Only Begotten of the Father.

What did he do during his short lifetime – or, more important, what did he give?
1. The singular example of a perfect life.
2. The answers to life’s eternal question of who we are.
3. The simple, pure, and revolutionary doctrines of love and charity.
4. The organization of a church to perpetuate and preserve those doctrines.
5. His life for our sins.

But can a list of what Christ gave us really be made? No matter how we think of it, he gave all for us. Because of his mortal mother, the Lord possessed the characteristics of a mortal during his earthly lifetime. He was, as we are, subject to pain, to difficulty, to temptation, to the weaknesses of mortal flesh. But because of his immortal father and his perfect existence, Jesus also possessed control over his life and death so that his life could not be taken. It could only be given.
