The promises of Jesus

Some people dismiss Jesus Christ as a “great teacher” or one of the outstanding religious leaders of the world. However, when it comes to promises, its interesting to contrast His words with other great religions and philosophical leaders. For example, as the founder of Buddhism was bidding his followers farewell he said, “You must be your own light.” Or when Socrates was about to take that fatal cup, one of his disciples mourned that he was leaving them orphans. The leaders of the world’s religions and philosophies were unable to promise that they would never leave their followers, unlike Jesus (See John 14:18)
