NOT BLIND FAITH
The Verifiable Evidence That God Exists and Jesus Rose from the Dead
   How many times have you heard sceptics mockingly accuse Christians of blind faith? Atheists and agnostics equate a person’s belief in Christ as the equivalent to believing in the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus.
   Although one may become emotional when he or she decides to become a follower of Jesus Christ, Christianity is not based on feelings or emotions. True Christianity is trusting in Christ and what He has done for us, which is based on verifiable evidence that God exists and that Jesus rose from the dead.
   The famous intellectual agnostic who converted to Christianity because of the overwhelming
abundance of evidence, C. S. Lewis, said, Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.”
   The problem with Christianity in America, and the reason Christianity is becoming irrelevant, is too many professing Christians act as if Jesus is only moderately important. The term “Christian” literally means “follower of Christ”. Every person in the Bible who came face to face with the resurrected Christ was radically changed. I’m afraid we have too many church members and not enough Christ followers in America.
   Before proceeding, let me ask an honest question my friend Frank Turek likes to pose.
If Christianity were true, would you become a Christian?
