~Healthy doubt is good. Someone who claims they believe the fantastic with no proof will come to disbelieve it with no proof. Think of something or someone you believed in the past, then found out later the cause or person was a fake, a fraud. How did it make you feel? Have you ever wished you could prove beyond any doubt that Jesus performed miracles and came back to life?
~Despite what some people would have us believe, faith is not blind. Hebrews 11:1 defines faith as “the EVIDENCE of things hoped for.” Have you examined any of the evidences suggested in previous episodes for personal research into the Bible’s authenticity? Do you want to?
~The Apostle Peter wrote thirty years later, “Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him.” And how did those people learn to believe in Jesus? He continued, “Concerning this salvation, the prophets…predicted the sufferings of Christ” (II Peter 1:8-11). To trace prophecies fulfilled in Jesus’ life and death, do an internet search. What joy can you feel knowing for sure that Jesus came back to life, thus offering you the same privilege after you die?
