“Anybody whod want to remove the Peace Cross needs to be handed over to the nearest psycho ward on a permanent basis”
The same could be said of someone who talks to a 2000 year old dead Jew. And expects an answer.
If he were dead, you’d have a valid point.
Now, it is reasonable for you to insist that there be support for this claim, and I would not be the least offended at you for asking, nor would I fail to provide some, here.
My claim that Jesus is not dead is that same truth-claim made by the early gospel writers, and by unknown thousands of adherents to the Christian faith these past 20 centuries. In support of that historic claim I affirm that I have personally and thoroughly vetted the claim for myself, and experientially determined that it is, in fact, true. I have lived the life of Christian faith for more than 30 years, and in that time my compiled personal experiences have conclusively demonstrated to me that there truly exists an unseen, yet evident, living, vibrant Personality Who answers to the name “Jesus,” Who interacts in a relational fashion with mortal man, and Who has the demonstrated capability to do everything in this present day that He did during his ministry on Earth incarnate as a man among men.
The difficulty for you is just this: knowing it is all true comes AFTER — and ONLY after — believing it is all true. Only AFTER the investment of faith in the truth of what you have been told can you begin to experience for yourself that it really is true. But that investment of faith is only difficult if you resist doing it. And if you are resistant, then I assert that you must present a more compelling rationale for resisting faith (against the threat of...what, exactly?) than I, and countless others, have presented in favor of embracing faith.
So. Here, now, without pretension or pomposity; bearing you only goodwill and hope for a glimmer of revelation; I leave you to your own devices concerning what I have written. I pray you consider faith well, for I know that — once you ascribe to it — you will find it worthwhile.
