Quotes that rock…

The disciples had nothing to gain by lying and starting a new religion. They faced hardship, ridicule, hostility, and martyr’s deaths. In light of this, they could never have sustained such unwavering motivation if they knew what they were preaching was a lie. The disciples were not fools and Paul was a cool-headed intellectual of the first rank. There would have been several opportunities over three to four decades of ministry to reconsider and renounce a lie.

One thought on “Quotes that rock…

  1. I can only deduce that fear of accepting the limited amount of control we have over our lives would lead skeptics to use the same reasoning to prove just about every other conceivable outcome whose eyewitness account they were not physically or otherwise able to report except that of Christ’s life and the inevitable resulting place we now find ourselves in as Christians in 2012.
