Jesus said “Even if John doesn’t die, I’m still the one to be followed.”
The disciples response “Did you hear that John isn’t going to die!” The misunderstanding started to spread.
John stopped the lie in its track. “No, Jesus did not say that I wouldn’t die. He said that my death should not matter to you, the followers of Christ.”
Could you imagine how Christians would be affected around the world if they were allowed to keep believing the lie that Jesus said John wouldn’t die? John’s death would have shaken their faith to the core because they would begin to doubt Christ’s words.
If you hear a piece of information that you know to be false…be bold in standing up for the truth. If you let it go people could be seriously hurt.
