I don’t care about being popular with the crowd; the Savior wasn’t. I have other goals in mind. The possibility of eternal life beckons me. What good is a moment of glory versus ten moments of bliss? That’s the kind of questions I’m asking.
Do I have a guarantee? Only the word of a man who rose from the dead after raising others from the dead. That’s kind of hard to do. Good actors or otherwise. Especially after a crucifixion, that’s not plausible.
Stay with me. What have you got to lose? Misery? Faithless friends? Use your head.
