Hymns Old & New #8 - Was It For Me?
Hymns Old & New # 8 is titled - Was it for Me?
It's odd that this hymn is in the 2x2 hymn book. What was the hymn book committee thinking?
The very first line of Hymn #8 says "Was it for me, for me alone, the Saviour left the glorious throne. The dazzling splendors of the sky, was it for me he came to die?
Please think of how this song here (which tells the truth) tells how Jesus Christ came from heaven. Do you realize that the 2x2s claim that Jesus Christ started the 2x2 way on the shores of Galilee? If Jesus Christ started his church on the shores of Galilee, then why does the Bible teach that the Word of God (the light of the world etc) led the church in the wilderness? Who is telling the truth here? Because it cannot be that the workers and the Bible are correct.
Obviously Jesus Christ was in heaven before he was on earth. That means he is God. And He is. See John 1:1-3 where the apostle John identifies Jesus Christ as the word of God who created heaven and earth and is indeed God.
Act 7:37 This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear. This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:
If you don't believe that the workers have brainwashed you, consider how many times you've sung a hymn that tells the truth and yet the workers completely contradict the Bible. Do you see how you've been deceived?
The chorus of hymn # 8 says, "It was for me, yes, all for me; Oh love of God, so great so free! Oh, wondrous love! Oh boundless grace! He died for me, He took my place."
Do you realize that you've sinned? Do you know what sin is? Did you know that sin is the transgression of the commandments of God? Did you not notice that the workers don't teach that you should keep the 10 commandments, which are THE NEW TESTAMENT???? Yes, the ten commandments of God is the will of God, written on our hearts. If you don't believe this friend, then you don't know God.
What did Jesus Christ say about entering into life?
Mat_19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
If you have gone to dozens or hundreds of meetings and don't know how to be saved, then why in the world would you invite others to come to meetings? So they can sit there and invite people to meetings for no reason at all? It just doesn't make sense does it? Why don't you stay home and read you Bible and learn how to be saved by God?
What do workers teach instead of the commandments of God? Jesus said to replace his commandments with man's teachings makes your worship vain (worthless show).
Mar_7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
If you want to know God, and understand that Jesus Christ died for your sins, and that it WAS for you, then read your Bible. If you are confused and cannot do that, send me a note below with your phone or email address. Let's talk.

|To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.|
