What do you think most people do with the evidence that exists regarding Jesus of Nazareth? To date, regarding Jesus:
. Some of the world’s most magnificent architecture has been constructed as an act of worship to Jesus
. Some of the world’s most beautiful art has been created as an act of worship to Jesus
. Some of the world’s greatest music has been written as an act of worship to Jesus
. Because of whom millions of people have survived exile and labour camps
. Because of whom millions of people have willingly given their lives
. Because of whom criminals, drug addicts, the suicidal, the lonely, the poor (and some rich) have found comfort, renewal and emotional / spiritual health while people like Son of Sam serial killer have found miraculous transformations of character.
. Because of whom millions of people turn away from the pursuit of financial gain and give their lives to feed the hungry, clothe the poor, shelter the homeless and abused, support the grieving, parent the orphaned and heal the sick.
. Because of whom all industrialised nations, modern universities and modern science have had their origins
. Because of whom a planet exists within an unimaginably huge and hostile universe that itself owes its existence to this Being.
. Because of whom we have forgiveness of sins, freedom from real guilt and salvation for eternity.
In response to the evidence that is available regarding this Man Jesus, who today is worshipped by over two billion people, this Jesus is someone that atheists claim never existed.
Atheists challenge Christians with “Proof! Give me proof and I’ll believe.” This of course is nonsense. Like Jesus said regarding atheists, “Even when I rise from the dead, many will not believe.” The fact is there is no evidence that would be acceptable to atheists. Their denial of Creator God is not based on evidence nor the lack thereof. The denial that Creator God exists, and by extension Jesus the Christ is based on a desire to rebel against the idea that Someone exists to whom they will one day be accountable for their actions, thoughts and words. “No fucking masters” is becoming the catch phrase for those who deny the reality of their Creator.
If you’ve ever longed to belong to a losing 2% minority who deny reality simply to support their lifestyle, then atheism is a group suited just for you.
