5 Proofs of the Resurrection Christianity is a unique faith for many reasons. One of the most remarkable is the fact that its spiritual truths are based on historical events. Christianity is not just a set of beliefs; it is a record of God's unfolding plan of redemption through real events. At the apex of all historical claims is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Here are five evidences that support this critical Christian belief:1. Conversion of CriticsPaul and James had very little in common early in their life. Paul's life seems to reflect first century privilege and the finest learning available. He grew to become an influential leader who was well-known and respected in his community. On the other hand, James was the son of a carpenter whose eccentric brother was executed for claiming to be the Messiah. Yet both Paul the Pharisee and James the brother of Jesus abandoned their disbelief once they had an encounter with Jesus after His death.2. Early Testimony to Christian BeliefBoth secular and religious writings confirm that the first century church boldly professed the resurrection.The preaching of the early church centered around the message that Jesus rose from the dead. See Acts 2:22–24; 3:26; 4:2; 5:30–32; 10:39–41; 13:29–34; 17:3; 23:6; 23:23; Romans 4:25; 8:11; 10:9; 1 Corinthians 15; Ephesians 1:20; Philippians 2:10–11; Colossians 3:1; Hebrews 13:20; and 1 Peter 1:3.The resurrection is recorded in the gospels. See Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, and John 20.Early church fathers, including Clement of Rome, Ignatius, and Irenaeus refer to the resurrection.Secular accounts of early Christianity written by Tacitus and Josephus also verify that first century Christians believed in the resurrection.Based on this evidence, any suggestion that the resurrection account was a myth added centuries later simply is not viable. While the fact that first-century Christians believed in the resurrection does not prove it happened, it does show that this is a core component of the gospel and was not a late addition.3. Women Were the First WitnessesMany aspects of the resurrection accounts found in Scripture would not make sense if the story were fabricated. There are just far too many embarrassing details. For instance, while the men were hiding for fear of the Jews, the women disciples were the ones to discover the empty tomb. Given the cultural disregard for the testimony of women in the first century, this would be unexpected unless it were true.4. Coverup by EnemiesMatthew records that the chief priests devised a plot to explain what happened to the body of Jesus. This account is collaborated by Justin Martyr and Tertullian. The Jews gave the Roman soldiers money to lie and say that the disciples stole His body while they were asleep. It has always struck me as strange that they would claim to know what happened while they were asleep! (Also, why were the grave clothes still there?) But beyond that, the very fact that there was coverup underscored the central point: the body disappeared.5. Empty TombNo single fact is more significant than the empty tomb. Christianity had many adversaries in the first century, both political and ideological. However, there is no record of anyone claiming that the tomb still contained His body. Many people believe 1 Corinthians 15:3–7 is the earliest creed of the Christian church. Here Paul writes, “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve…”In conclusion, Paul understood the importance of the resurrection. If it didn't happen, we would be the most miserable of all men and still in our sins…But, it did happen—go tell someone about it today!

The church network pushed back against renewed scrutiny around SGC and former president C. J. Mahaney's response to abuse claims. Despite continued calls for an independent, third-party investigation into Sovereign Grace Churches (SGC) and its response to abuse allegations, the network has officially taken the option off the table, calling it “inappropriate, impractical, unjust” and “impossible.”Controversy has surrounded SGC—previously Sovereign Grace Ministries, or SGM—and its founder C. J. Mahaney since at least 2012, when SGM’s flagship congregation faced a lawsuit alleging a sexual abuse cover-up, which was later dismissed on procedural grounds.This year, as evangelicals ramp up their response to abuse, top leaders in the Southern Baptist Convention have joined the scrutiny over Mahaney and his current congregation, SGC Louisville, which is also affiliated with the SBC.In a statement released this week, SGC declared that there hasn’t been enough credible evidence against its leaders or churches to necessitate an investigation and that an outside query would violate the church’s ecclesiastical accountability structure.“We remain persuaded that an investigation of the sort we’ve been challenged to authorize—both in good faith and otherwise—is inappropriate, impractical, unjust, and finally would be unsatisfactory to all interested parties,” the 2,300-word statement concluded. “Most importantly, as far as we’re able to discern, we believe this course, the theological capitulation it would represent, and the precedent it would set, would ultimately dishonor Christ and harm the cause of the gospel.”SGC, a network of 72 evangelical churches with headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky, said the decision was made in consult with fellow pastors, Christian ...Continue reading...
Sometimes culture makes it difficult, but there are aspects of culture that are quite conducive to evangelism.In part one, I talked about some of the headwinds hindering evangelism— things slowing or making sharing the faith more difficult.Now, we’re going to focus on the good news; specifically, we’re going to examine the tailwinds accelerating people’s openness towards sharing (and in some cases receiving) the gospel.Ironically, I think one of the great tailwinds, if engaged properly, is tolerance. The beauty of tolerance is that, extended properly, it’s meant for everybody—and that includes Christians.The truth now is that biblical convictions about the uniqueness of Christ, sexuality, human sinfulness, and other things are now minority views.The decline of nominal Christianity has opened up the door for the ‘nones’—those who aren’t committed to one faith or another—to grow. Increasingly, nominals are becoming nones.This trend has brought about a shift in cultural consensus on many matters related to faith, and if current trends continue—which is what trends tend to do—evangelical ideals and morals will only be given less and less representation.But, tolerance (functioning properly) can help people to hear different views.Of course, that’s not how tolerance is applied right now— it is often used to shut down speech one might find offensive. However, we can (and must) explain that in a truly tolerant world, people can believe things that don’t align perfectly with commonly held, widely accepted values and still have the right to practice their faith freely.Christians Share Their FaithFor Christians, part of the exercising of our faith includes sharing it with other people. Actually, according to the Bebbington Quadrilateral, it is one ...Continue reading...
