Let the record show…and Easter.
It’s easier to check up on claims of “success stories” these days. Show records are readily available and information abounds through a simple web search. AQHA, for instance, provides detailed records of the show ring performance of horses and riders. It’s now easier to “look before you leap” into that horse purchase or new coach alliance.
Skeptical by nature, that’s the way I came to stand upon the Christian faith – compelling evidence. The Easter story is one of a Jewish teacher who made startling claims and then backed it with miracles, predictions which came true and coming to life from death.
“If a man can predict his own death and resurrection, and pull it off, I just go with whatever that man says.” Author, pastor Andy Stanley
Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important. C.S.Lewis
For me, it was not really a leap of faith at all – but rather, walking the ramp of reason before I took took the final step of faith.
