The faith of the world befor Christ. 1. people was communicating to God through prophet.
2. Ignorant was the major encumbrance in the world them,The book of Hosea 4:6. Says. MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROY FOR THE LACK OF KNOWLADGE... Them Jeremiah 3:13. HAPPY IS THE MAN THAT GETTETH WISDOM, AND THE MAN THAT GETTETH UNDERSTANDING.
3. The Urge, impel and the eagerness to see the messiah, who will bring Everlasting Peace to the world (Isaiah.9:6).And redeem the world.......

While the faith After Christ.
1.With pure heart, you can communicate to God through Jesus Christ. ' I AM THE WAY THE TRUT AND THE LIGHT, NO ONE COME TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME.
2. The death of Jesus Christ brought salvation to man, And to redeem man from all sin.
3. The understanding of God is clearly defined through Christ.The problem now is not fully ignorance but doctrine.
Peace be to you all.

Re: Voila church!

Thanx for your comments Jeff. Your voila church ending reminded me that i wanted to bring in Nehemiah 8 where the scribes and Levittes explained the Word to the people as Ezra read it. Which helped the people to understand it and then they confessed their sins and made a covenant with God (attempted to keep His laws, which we as christians should try to do as well) They couldn't keep the covenant they made with God (or keep his law, as we fail to too) hence their need of a Savior. And voila is this not church? The preaching and interpitation of the Word, the confession of sins and turning to God is this not church? It seems that they should have had more of this in the old testament times as well. And we need more preaching of the Word as well!
