It only makes sense to emphasize important doctrine that is
little emphasized elsewhere. We summarize the major points that
have been made over the last few years:
1. Atheism makes no sense. The belief that there is no God
requires an explanation for existence to support their contention
for Godlessness. We canít construct a mathematical proof that a
driver isnít needed, but we can prove that their driverless
proposal is the least likely in the known universe. If all other
proposals are more likely, then the one and only premise of
Atheism fails to float in a sea of logic. Nothing makes sense in
science apart from the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
2. Christ is superior to all gods. Jesus, being God Incarnate, is self-
referencing and irrefutable by definition.
3. There is more evidence for Christianity than any other religion.
This includes scientific, archaeological, literary, and eyewitness
4. There is no difference between Christianity and Messianic
Judaism. Christ means Messiah. The Messiah is Jewish. Salvation
is to the Jew first and also to the Gentile. Gentiles donít adapt
well to second fiddle, but itís a good lesson in humility.
5. Sin is more than bad. It is the worst pollutant Earth has known.
Sin is inseparably linked to death and all corruption just as gravity
is inseparably linked to falling.
6. The parable of the Good Samaritan teaches us not to turn our
backs on those in need. Thatís why this website exists. Our works
of charity, however, are not of themselves an indicator of charity
from the heart. According to the Bible, this love/charity is
preeminent in Christianity. As Paul teaches:
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and
have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a
tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and
understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though
I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have
not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods
to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,
and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to
face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also
I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these
three; but the greatest of these is charity.
