  • Christianity is not a blind superstition.  Nor does it lack evidence of proof.  Christianity is based on evidence that proves Jesus Christ lived, died, and is now reigning.
    Some may question if Christianity is true.
    Consider, the evidence for Christianity:
    First, Christianity teaches that faith is based on evidence.
    The Bible is a store-house of evidence. In fact, 40 writers, wrote over a span of 1,500 years, recording the evidence from God to man. Its result is the Bible.
    We are called by God, through His Word to believe. Belief is not without believing in the evidence. Paul says, “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.” (Romans 10: 17).
    Second, Christianity calls on man to think and to examine the evidence in becoming a Christian.
    Again, Paul says, “But examine everything; hold fast to that which is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5: 21).
    The command is to examine the evidence of Christianity.  The challenge is that this will become a lifetime endeavor for the student who seeks God and His Will!
    Try it!
    Finally, Christianity is living a life for Christ.
    When the evidence is examined, the result should prompt a change in one’s life.
    The New Testament calls this the new birth  because one begins a new life in Christ (John 3: 1-5).
    Michael Harmon is the minister of the Augusta Church of Christ.  michael@augcoc.kscoxmail.com
