mid-week apologetics booster (11-26-2020)

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 1800) from Nuggets:

It is not until man is made thoroughly displeased with himself that he begins to aspire after God. The fallen creature, deluded by Satan, is self-pleased until his sin-blinded eyes are opened to get a sight of himself. – Arthur Pink 1886-1952, “Profiting from the Word”

  5. When we let the doubts win, Is there a way back? it’s perfectly natural to struggle with doubt. Certainty is a person-relative, situation-dependent … But we do have reasonable warrant to believe God is there, and has revealed himself in Jesus. Objections can be raised, but there’s no way to make belief in God unreasonable, and the state of the evidence concerning what Jesus claims and what happened to him isn’t changing. Its early, and given by credible eyewitnesses. So, there are reasons to start trusting again. The experience of those around you should not be enough to distract you from devotion to Christ. He is true regardless of our feelings, and regardless of the stories of those around us. Follow Jesus; its rational, and He’s worth it. – creation.com: https://creation.com/when-we-let-the-doubts-win
