    I ran across this website that claims John The Baptist is the Messiah and Jesus is not just wondering if anyone else has heard of this. If you would like to take a look heres the link.

    Just really goes to show you what Satan can do with scripture in the hands of the lost.

    Mr. Lowery,

    bmerr here. Pretty bizzare! I've heard a lot of strange teachings, but this is the first I've heard of anyone upholding John the Baptist as the Christ. In their devotion to John, it seems as though they've ignored Johns' own words in his denial that he was the Christ.

    I guess for some it's "anyone but Jesus!"

    In Christ (you know, the Messiah),

    bmerr

    What isn't taught much is that John the Baptist should have been the High Priest during the time of Jesus' ministry. John's father, Zacharias, was a priest at the time that Mary conceived. Zacharias' wife Elizabeth was a descendant of Aaron, the first High Priest. Ciaphas became High Priest because he was appointed by the Roman government, not because he was next in line.

    Perhaps this is why John went to the wilderness, so that he could proclaim the Messiah there if the Jewish leaders wouldn't do it in Jerusalem. The people would follow John into the Wilderness because they wanted to hear what he had to say and because it wasn't being said in the temple. John knew he wasn't the Messiah, and at one point he wasn't so sure Jesus was; but when it came time to step aside so that Jesus' popularity would grow, John made the right decision.

    I gues what upsets me most though is that when you type in

    True Christ Ministries in most search engines his site is #1

    Then its another geocities site based on Jesus

    Then its True Christ Ministries the church I pastors website. It doesnt bother me that our site is #3 just that a site that not Christ based is #1 .....At least its 2 to 1 go Jesus.

    in Paul's day, some said the resurrection had already take place. Paul corrected that false-hood.


    every era has their losers!
