“Amazing talent! Sounds just like Amy Winehouse!”
I was reading an online exchange praising a talented young singer, Angelina Jordan. At 17 years of age, she had already come to international attention. Here is her debut on American television when she was merely 13 years old.

Whenever a performer, artist, or public servant gains widespread recognition, there are inevitable comparisons to others who preceded them. These comparisons are not always positive. Some comparisons cite evil and malevolent predecessors. Barely a news cycle passes without some politician being compared to Adolph Hitler.
What about Jesus Christ? Some scholars state that His teachings are no different than any leader or prophet of other major religions. While some comparisons are valid, Jesus Christ clearly separates Himself from everyone else who came before Him and since. He elevated the teachings of God to a deeper level, averring that it was not only our actions but our very thoughts that are being judged. In His life, He was tempted in all ways by the same beguiling that life offers to all of us, yet did not sin. He conquered death by His resurrection and offered the only true way to salvation to all who confess and repent of their sins and place their trust in Him.
Even His supporters and detractors agreed!
We have never heard anyone speak like this!…
John 7:46 (NLT)
Jesus Christ. Lord and Savior. Man and God.
He is like no one else!
Love and trust in the Lord; seek His will in your life.
