I know how foolish the message of the cross sounds to those who are headed to eternal death, but I am not ashamed of the gospel because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. In the gospel, a perfection from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last. God destroys the wisdom of the wise and frustrates the intelligence of the intelligent. The wisdom of the world is foolishness to God and he decided to choose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise. God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things, the despised things and the things that are not to nullify the things that are so no one may boast before him.
I will concede to you if the Bible is not God's Word and Christ did not rise from the dead, I am one of the biggest fools in the world. But if it is true, then it is the greatest truth you could ever know. There is no middle ground. It is either the truth or it is a lie. I am required to always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks the reason for the hope I have.
I have done my best to present the evidence which affirms it is the truth. If you have evidence to the contrary, please make me aware of it. I am not asking you to believe it. I am only asking you to examine the information with an open mind so you can make an informed decision. The enemy will do everything in his power to prevent that from happening. He rebelled against God, like all of us have, and was cast out of heaven forever. He was a liar from the beginning and he is the father of all lies. He knows how glorious it is to be in God's presence. He also knows he is now banished forever. His only goal is to deceive individuals in any way possible.
You are a unique creation of God and when he made you, he formed you with a hole inside of you only he can fill. It is human nature to try anything and everything in this world to fill that void, but in the end, only the Holy Spirit of God living inside you can do it. He gave you life and he laid down his life for you so you could live with him for eternity. The very least you can do is give him a few minutes of your life to allow him the opportunity to prove himself to you. Forever is a long time to be wrong.
Don't be like these people...
You will be ever hearing but never understanding. You will be ever seeing but never perceiving. The hearts of these people have become calloused. They hardly hear with their ears and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise, they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn and I would heal them. - Jesus Christ
