The Message is made plain
Since time immemorial, man has sought for answers to the mysteries of life. Who am I? What is the meaning of life? What is the purpose of life on Earth? Is there really life afterdeath? What are the conditions of that life? And how do we secure it for ourselves?
Why is there so much suffering in the world? Why poverty, injustice, famine, war, disease and death? Why me? Where is the love of God? Every thinking man comes to ask himself these questions.
In answer, Jesus Christ spoke to the men of his time. He revealed the answers to all these questions and more; but because the people were not ready, he was largely misunderstood and misinterpreted. And much of the resulting confusion still exists even into our day and age.
However, we donít have to remain ignorant and confused. We need only to go back to first principles, to the original answers given by Christ and then, work forward from there, in order to transcend all the conflicting interpretations and see things as they really are. But this time, instead of embracing half-truths and blind teachings, we should be discriminating and wise, guided more by the dictates of reason in the light of our vastly superior wealth of personal experiences.
ĎThe Message Made Plainí is a study course that precisely brings back into focus the actual words and teachings of Jesus Christ to enable the student to start afresh without having to contend too much with the misguided and confusing interpretations of mere followers.
As you go through the course, many things will clarify themselves to you. You should be able to realize the answers to all your important questions about life and death.
In Lesson 1, you will come to realize your urgent need to further your spiritual studies and prepare for eternal life. In Lesson 2, you will learn all about the person of Jesus and come to know him intimately. He refutes many of the old beliefs and teachings which still persist even today in Lesson 3. In Lesson 4, he explains why we need to live right in the sight of God.
The reasons for suffering and the way whereby Heaven can be attained are taken up in Lesson 5. Lesson 6 puts forward for our consideration, a more practical approach to life and includes a discussion of the underlying rational bases behind his spiritual teachings. And finally, all you need to know about life hereafter are discussed in Lesson 7.
You really canít afford to pass up this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Itís like having a private audience with the Lord where he reveals to you the secrets of his kingdom.
