The most important question of all …
When He was talking with a friend one day, Jesus of Nazareth made an extraordinary claim.
He said - "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in Me, though he dies, yet shall he live. Whoever lives and believes in me shall not die forever". (St John's Gospel Chapter 11 Verses 25-26). Then He asked a simple question, "Do you believe this?".
That question remains at the heart of human existence: Do you believe that Jesus Christ is telling the truth? It is a question that all of us must answer, and not answering it is an answer in itself. How we answer it shapes where we shall spend eternity - it is as crucial as that.
Jesus showed in many ways that He is indeed telling the truth, most of all by His own rising from the dead Himself - an event described as "the best attested fact in history".
In the light of the evidence around us in support of His claims, believing that Jesus IS telling the truth turns out to be the most sensible and obvious response. Equally, trying to write Him off as a fake means heads are being buried in a great deal of sand.
This week’s “Sorry Mr Darwin but…!”
"Irreducible complexity" refers to the incredibly complex systems we find in organisms, each one of which consists of numerous intricate parts; we can think of the ear, or the eye, or the knee for example. These parts function perfectly together, but unless all these parts existed fully-formed and properly positioned at the start, the system could not and would not function.
Darwin himself admitted that for his theory to be accepted, this completeness of a system had to exist at the start - but of course his theory depends upon that completeness NOT existing at the start!
In this way he sunk his own theory - so why is it so worshipped as "scientific truth" when anyone who cares to stop, look and think can see that it is nothing of the sort?
It makes you think ….
