If the disciples didn’t have a good reason to lie about the Resurrection, what was my good reason not to believe them? I couldn’t find one. The more I learned about the historical evidence for Christianity, the more convicted I was about my own resistance to its claims. I eventually had to ask myself, “Am I resisting because there isn’t enough evidence to demonstrate this is true, or am I resisting because I just don’t want it to be true?” After examining the evidence, I knew it was the latter. I had constructed a series of prideful, intellectual barriers that prevented me from hearing the truth. Once those barriers were removed, I was able to recognize myself on the pages of Scripture: a fallen, rebellious, and prideful detective who didn’t want to admit he needed a Savior. —J Warner Wallace (from, Were the Gospel Eyewitnesses Lying About the Resurrection?)
