Something that has resurfaced over the past few weeks as I posted the resurrection series on my blog is that there is still this misconception that what we as Christians believe are nothing but myths and fabrications. Yet even in the first century Peter felt the need to let people know that the gospel he and the other apostles preached was true.
The evidence is overwhelming that Jesus is who the writers of the New Testament say He is. Yet many refuse to accept the evidence. They would rather believe someone who lived almost two thousand years later rather than those who lived at the time and in the first two centuries. Why would they know what had happened during their life time? Are we so much smarter today? What always gets lost is that the modern critics have their own agenda and it is to repudiate Christianity. Maybe someone hurt them when they were younger. Maybe some professor made atheism seem cool. Maybe they just want to stir things up but the simple fact is they do not have the evidence on their side so they argue from silence. They even make up documents that we have no proof ever existed in order to support their views.
Nothing much seems to have changed over the last two millennia. We still have doubters and we still need to reach out to them in love. Maybe we will never reach them but we still need to try.
Have a blessed day,
