it is written

by Andy Pierson

People that do not believe in the God of the Bible often look at believers like they are uneducated idiots or delusional mental cases. How do I know this for sure? I use to be one. I was like Paul. I persecuted the people that I have become. I understand just how wretched I am (please note that I said am, not was). They cannot understand how Christians could believe in and shape an entire worldview around what they view as an imaginary entity. The entity Christian believers call Jesus. It stupefies them. What baffles them even more is they see that a body/group of people have been believing in this supposed “imaginary” entity for centuries and millennium based on a book called the Bible.

The anti-God argument that he was imaginary might actually hold water if it wasn’t for the fact that we get this so-called straw man from the Bible filled with eyewitness accounts of Christ’s incarnation among other evidences. Many in ignorance of the faith argue that the Bible is a book that was supposedly written by nomadic sheep/goat herders (which they created out of their imaginations, which according to the world, makes us twice as stupid because our culture is suppose to be so much more advanced in our “intellectual” thinking. This is where it gets really hard for the unbelieving world. They become indignant and downright hostile…
