Jesus’ tomb discovered?

Well, now they say that they have discovered Jesus’s grave with his family, sounds funny… I know that Christians are sure about one thing, that Jesus lived and died for our sins and that he ascended to heaven and now sits at the right hand of the father and pleads for all those who believe in his name and have submitted their lives to him.

But what are the unbelievers or skeptics sure about? On one hand they argue that a person called Jesus never existed and that the disciples and other christians made the whole story up. And suddenly one they they come up with the body and grave of the person whom they said never existed. Doesn’t that prove that they are very unsure about what really happened?

And now well, to refute why its not Jesus’ body or his family. The main reason I would say is that it was found in Jerusalem… ha… When all christians were persecuted for their faith, think of Jesus living peacefully in the surroundings and having a family.. and that too with his mom, dad, Mary Magdalene (whom skeptics say where his wife but have no proof) And of all things if he did live a normal life anywhere in those places there would not have been any christians past the 1st century. But now we are in the 21st century and the name of Christ and his religion has lived past centuries… and its only through God’s power that christianity has come this far.. The world may try to kill it as much as they want, but because the power of God is at work, no one will ever be able to wipe out the name of Christ, its going to be eternal, just as I have written in the name of my blog… I never imagined I would write such a blog when I named my site.. Men have tried to wipe out christianity for centuries, but never have been able to. Just have a look in the past to see how many people have tried to wipe out christianity but never have been able to, Never has anything been attacked like christianity and survived.. More reason for skeptics to believe that the power and truth of God is found in Christianity. In fact every time they seem as if they have found something which is most likely to wipe out Christians, but look into the past centuries and see that these attacks are nothing when compared to what all the religion of Christ had to go through in the past centuries…

And once more people never want to go with the truth, they only want to go with scandal. Most of the archaelogists argue that this is just a sham and a method to make fame and money. And besides I’d say that there are other motives. Since most of the hollywood people are scientologists they would like to prove their point, and how else to prove their point, than by striking at the greatest truth of all times, that Christ lived and died and rose again. If christianity is proved false, then its a big leap for all skeptics, but the truth is that they have not been able to disprove christianity or the truth of the Bible. They think so, but the construction of new stories every alternate year and new scandals show how much they want to disprove the truth of Christ. Imagine this… If I know I have won an argument, I would never go and find more reasons why my argument is true, in the same way, if unbelievers really think that they have disproved the existence of the Jesus of the Bible, they have to think twice, why come up with a new fallacy if its already been disproved?

Well, if you are skeptic about the belief of Christians and still wonder why we believe so much and never doubt, I would suggest that you should at least think that there is truth to what christians believe, wonder why the name of Christ Jesus has survived the ages.. It is because Christ is the power and the wisdom of God, Its a story man could never have conjured up. Like the Apostle Paul said in 1 corinthians 1 :18 – 29

For the preaching of the cross is foolishness to those being lost, but to us being saved, it is the power of God. For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and I will set aside the understanding of the perceiving ones.” ……. For since, in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom did not know God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe.

For you see your calling, brothers, that not many wise men according to the flesh are called, not many mighty, not many noble. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and God has chosen the base things of the world, and things which are despised, and things which are not, in order to bring to nothing things that are; so that no flesh should glory in His presence.

So if you ever wonder why Christianity does not have in it the wisdom of the world it is because it is the wisdom of God and it God confounded the wisdom of the wise so they should not pride in their wisdom. Hence those who pride in their wisdom that Christianity are wrong are rejecting the wisdom of God and saying that they are more wise. If someone wants wisdom , he should ask God and that is where they will find the true answers….

I’d say that if you have time to read the reasoning of unbelievers, you should also take time to read the reasoning of Christians.. Here is wonderful reasoning to why Christ is really the power and wisdom of God, by Spurgeon – Christ, the power and wisdom of God..

Just Beginning…

I just hope that in whatever I write in this blog of mine, I will only exalt the name of Jesus… I just hope that the Lord will draw me closer to him in my daily walk with him and turn me away from my evil paths and use me for his glory…

The Eternal Name

I really liked this one from Spurgeon… It makes me think and wonder that I should not be doing anything to make myself a name.. but I must forever live to glorify Christ and his name…

I am not particularly anxious about my own name, whether that shall endure for ever or not, provided it is recorded in my Master’s book. George Whitefield, when asked whether he would found a denomination, said, “No; Brother John Wesley may do as he pleases, but let my name perish; let Christ’s name last for ever.” Amen to that! Let my name perish; but let Christ’s name last for ever. I shall be quite contented for you to go away and forget me.

for I say of the Baptist name, let it perish, but let Christ’s name last for ever. I look forward with pleasure to the day when there will not be a Baptist living. I hope they will soon be gone. You will say, Why? Because when everybody else sees baptism by immersion, we shall be immersed into all sects, and our sect will be gone. Once give us the predominance, and we are not a sect any longer. A man may be a Churchman, or a Wesleyan, or an Independent, and yet be a Baptist. So that I say, I hope the Baptist name will soon perish; but let Christ’s name last for ever. Yea, and yet again; much as I love dear Old England, I do not believe she will ever perish. No, Britain! thou shalt never perish, for the flag of Old England is nailed to the mast by the prayers of Christians, by the efforts of Sunday Schools and her pious men. But, I say, let even England’s name perish; let her be merged in one great brotherhood; let us have no England, and no France, and no Russia, and no Turkey, but let us have Christendom; and I say heartily from my soul, let nations and national distinctions perish, but let Christ’s name last for ever. Perhaps there is only one thing on earth that I love better than the last I have mentioned, and that is the pure doctrine of unadulterated Calvinism. But if that be wrong—if there be anything in that which is false—I, for one, say, let that perish too, and let Christ’s name last for ever. Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! “Crown him Lord of all!” You will not hear me say anything else.

If everyone starting thinking this way, how easily it would get through all the various sects and denominations.. The name of Jesus and him glorified should be our aim and purpose all the days of our life. May I remember this for the rest of my life…
