These imaginary idiots now ask: “How do we explain the fact that Jesus never appeared to you?” (See video below)
This question was addressed to an intelligent Christian, but obviously the one or the group asking this question is not intelligent! Under the law on evidence, the credibility of a witness is determined by considering whether he is capable of knowing the thing thoroughly about which he testifies. Let us read the following information about a credible witness: (http://www.lectlaw.com/def/c328.htm)
CREDIBLE WITNESS – A credible witness is one who is competent to give evidence, and is worthy of belief. In deciding upon the credibility of a witness, it is always pertinent to consider whether he is capable of knowing the thing thoroughly about which he testifies. 2. Whether he was actually present at the transaction. 3. Whether he paid sufficient attention to qualify himself to be a reporter of it; and 4. Whether he honestly relates the affair fully as he knows it, without any purpose or desire to deceive or suppress or add to the truth.
These enemies of the Bible can not be considered as credible witnesses, because they are claiming something, which they can not thoroughly know or prove. How do you know that Jesus never appeared to a Christian? Have you investigated all Christians? Are you omnipresent to know what is happening in the entire world? Where did you get such a lie that Christ never appeared to any Christian? Here is a food for thought for you (if you have any).
The Bible which you use to malign my God has the answer! After His resurrection, He appeared to so many people before ascending into heaven.
(1 Corinthians 15:3-8) “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.” RSV
In the preceding verses, He appeared to about six hundred people!
Before ascending into heaven, He promised the Christians in the first century Church that He will again come at the end of the age to resurrect them and be with Him in paradise.
(John 14:1-3) “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
When will He be coming to resurrect the Christians?
(John 6:44) “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.”
He will be coming at the last day! That day, He will appear!
(Titus 2:13) “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ…”
The first century Christians and Christians nowadays know fully well that the appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ will happen at the last day, when dead Christians will be resurrected. No intelligent Christian now will ask Christ to appear to him NOW. He understands the Scriptures that the appearing is yet to come and no Christian will ask the untimely appearing of his Lord! Above this, the Lord Jesus Christ, before ascending into heaven has warned Christians not to believe to impostors that will claim that they are the Christ!
(Matthew 24:23-27) “Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
These stern warnings are understood by an intelligent Christian. He will not expect Christ to appear to him before the appointed day. The coming of Christ at the last day will be heralded by the trump of God with a loud voice of an archangel!
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
It will be an event that will not be done in secret. It will be known. It will be noticed, and that day will mark the end of this age!
Do you realize how foolish these imaginary people are?
It is for you to decide.
