evidence for jesus – test everything!

Logical questions abound. People often wonder if the bible really wants us to seek evidence regarding what it says or evidence about jesus. What does the bible say about this? Are we simply to accept its words in faith? The answer is no! the bible commands us to “test everything”, including the bible itself:

Test everything. Hold on to the good. (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

Why would the bible include such a command? Because untested faith is blind faith. And blind faith can lead to faith in anything.

It can lead to faith in the religious leader of one’s parents. It can lead to the most popular faith in the community. It can lead to the faith of friends or unknown bloggers!

It can even lead to faith in people such as Jim Jones and David Koresh.

However, properly tested faith will only lead to the truth. Which is why I read, I study, I listen, I ask, I probe and why I write.
