My friend Lionel from “A View from the Woods” has been away for a while. But, he came back into the blogging world yesterday with a huge post called “10 Reasons I Don’t Believe in the Resurrection!!!!”
Before you start throwing around the term “heresy,” you should definitely read his post. You may even find that, like Lionel, you don’t live as if you believe in the resurrection either.
What is he talking about? Well, here are four of Lionel’s reasons:
1. If I believed in the resurrection, the American dream would be appalling.
2. If I believed in the resurrection I would support missions wrecklessly.
3. If I believed in the resurrection I wouldn’t be embarrassed about Jesus.
4. If I believed in the resurrection I would forgive as I have been forgiven.
So, I have to admit, sometimes I live as if I don’t believe the resurrection of Jesus Christ actually happened…
