God works in mysterious ways to accomplish something because His ultimate summations are far beyond what the limited human mind can comprehend!
A historical beginning of ‘Pride In Christ’ in the Christian world! Luke 9:26
Christians are bragging and boasting “I AM PROUD OF JESUS” in churches of all denominations and it’s not sinful. Galatians 6:14 – Christians are finally rejoicing by expressing their PRIDE in Christ in public. I am NOT ashamed of the Gospel! Romans 1:16
Our Vision: It is our hope that being PROUD of Jesus strengthens Christian faith and believers are reminded to be PROUD of Jesus by Christian leaders of all denominations because ‘Pride In Christ’ is one of the single most important things to be believer. Christian leaders such as … Pope Francis – Franklin Graham – Joel Osteen – Mark Burnett – Cardinal Donald Wuerl – Rick Warren – Mike Huckabee – Jerry Falwell Jr. – Joyce Meyer – Pat Robertson – Ronnie Floyd – Richard Land – Thomas Spencer Monson – The Rev. T.D. Jakes – Cardinal Timothy Dolan, and other leaders.
Our Belief: It is our belief that the use of words such as “Pride” or “Proud” is Holy and is Not Sinful as long as we ultimately acknowledge God in our boasting, what He has accomplished in us and through us. 1 Corinthians 1:31 – Galatians 6:14
Our History: “PROUD OF JESUS” was envisioned in 2012 by a Muslim who believes that peoples of all faiths are created by the same loving God, and are all oriented toward God as their ultimate destination, and will be judged based on their actions. Being PROUD of Jesus Christ and His Gospel does not mean that we can disregard or disrespect other religions. On the contrary, the Church has said that other religions, though different from our own, often reflect “a ray of that Truth” which enlightens all human beings. (Nostra Aetate, a. 2) – “PROUD OF JESUS” was introduced to the public in Jan. 2017 by a small group of believers of diverse ethnic backgrounds and faiths to bring glory to Christ in a much more meaningful way.
Our Plan: We plan to seek guidance from Christian leaders and challenge believers on social media with a critical yet unanswered question: “Why do you believe Christians were not reminded to be PROUD of Jesus in the past?”
Our Hope: It is our hope that ‘PROUD OF JESUS’ would transcend Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and temples of all denominations as a reminder for the believers of all faiths to be PROUD of Jesus because His teachings are worthy of PRIDE, every word that came out of the lips of Jesus had a meaning, teachings of Jesus are commonly shared . He was a model for behavior and social harmony… 1 Corinthians 1:10 · Colossians 3:13-14
God, If I hurt others, give me the strength to apologize, if people hurt me, give me the strengthen to forgive!
Be kind and forgive one another as God forgave you. – Ephesians 4:32 esv
“If you love only those who love you, what is great in that?” – St. Matthew 5:46
* Love doesn’t necessarily breed pride but pride breeds love!
