They Try to Explain it Away

With the resurrection of Jesus Christ fresh on our minds it is amazing how many cable channel documentaries try to explain it away.  Obviously, the resurrection creates a problem for an unbelieving world.  A former professor of mine referenced the following YouTube video on his blog and I wanted to share it with you. It shows how ridiculous the theory is that states Jesus did not die after His crucifixion and two days later he was walking 7 miles to Emmaus.


(Note: the images at the end of the video illustrate what an unbelieving world calls goofy; however Christians see those events as factual. If you cannot see the video because you are viewing this through an RSS feed or another source please go to my blog to see it.)

Jesus did die on the cross for the sins of the world but He did not stay in the grave. He arose on the third day conquering sin and the grave. He became the sacrifice for our sins and whosoever believes in Him will be saved. My challenge to the Christian is to prepare to stand in defense of your faith. The time is here.

In Christ,
Doug

  1. I actually find it refreshing that the discovery channel has so many attempts to debunk the resurrection story belief. Why do I find it refreshing? This massive effort to disprove the story of Jesus' sacrifice seems to indicate that historians have found significant evidence to believe that the resurrection story to some degree to have come true. With this realization, the modern "intellectual" (how much I have come to despise the prerequisites society has placed on that word) is fighting so hard to prove that this historical account was somehow a great magic show. This should be refreshing that historians consider this a serious enough threat that they have to attack it. Normally the "intellectual society" of scoffers and naysayers try to attack the Bible with science, philosophy, or simply snub up to it by saying that its arrogant, ignorant or stupid to even consider the Bible plausible or possibly true (People of this sort do nothing short of repulse me). So take it as a compliment to Christianity that these "intellectual skeptics" are actually going to the trouble of trying to disprove the resurrection by making it out to be a cleaverly devised scheme. It seems to me that this is one of the most obvious proofs of Gods existence. I find it funny that it seems this act of skeptics trying to take away from the validity of this story further reafferms that what we believe is true. I say "Away with the atheists!!" Hahaha, good ol' polycarp :-P
    The Aut Deus Aut Malus Homo arguments pretty cool too btw Doug, u should post it when u get the chance.

  2. Thanks for the post! Obviously it has been the same argument for centuries, however, we have a different platform now (TV). The base of the argument is "if we don't try to disprove it then we must answer to it".
