What Did Jesus Teach?

It seems to me that a large percentage of our American community claims some sort of association with Jesus Christ. I make that statement based on the multitudes of conversations I have with people as I go to and fro. I must admit I am bothered by the glaring differences between what Christ taught and the lifestyles of those who claim to be in association with Him. Perhaps a reminder of some Doctrines of Jesus would be in order:

1. Love God with all your heart, soul and mind. Matt. 22:37
2. Love your neighbor as yourself Matt. 22:38
3. Love your enemies. Matt. 6:44

33. Turn to Christ for strength when you are heavy laden. Matt. 11:28
34. Every man is responsible to keep his heart tender to the word of God.

35. If a man gains the whole world and loses his soul he has not profited.
Mark 8:37}
36. It is better to pluck your own eyes out than to let your eyes send you
to hell. Mark 9:47
37. Not every person who calls Jesus his Lord will go to heaven. Many who say
they are associated with Christ will go to hell. Matt. 7:21

If you are one who has claimed to be a believer in Jesus, but you do not do
the things he taught you are deceived. Your only hope is to repent of your
sin and place your faith in Jesus; then you will obey His teachings in the
power that He will give you. May God help many people to obey.
