What’s the greatest threat to the truth? Ignorance. Willful ignorance is the breath of life which keeps dangerous and irrational philosophies, religions and ideas alive.
However clever something is worded, however grounded a statement is in facts; the will to ignorance will prevail against all wisdom, knowledge and reason which opposes it.
The greatest examples of the effects of this powerful enemy is surrounded around the controversy of Jesus Christ. Atheists are willing to accept a hypothesis of a man from the 1800’s as fact which knew less about biology than you can learn reading one chapter of a fourth grade level science book, yet mock Christians for believing Jesus is the son of God which in light of evidence makes the most forensic sense he actually rose from the dead.
They reject miracles, yet embarrassingly believe a fish sprouted feet and walked out of the ocean to eventually become a man. They call theists close minded, yet despite the overwhelming complexity of the makeup of living organisms, cosmology, and the many structured laws of science within our universe which brings order; Creation is completely ruled out of the equation in favor of spontaneous, misguided disorder.
Muslims are no better, according to Muhammad Jesus wasn’t crucified (Surah 4:157-158), rather a look alike was in his stead. They accept the historical lecture of an illiterate tyrant from the 6’th century about Jesus’s crucifixion which occurred in the 1’st century, who simultaneously calls Allah “the greatest of all deceivers” in the Quran (Qur’an 3:54, Qur’an 7:99, Qur’an 8:30) while contradicting all historical documentation of Christ’s crucifixion from biblical and non biblical 1’st century sources.
It’s shameful, it doesn’t require a PhD in rocket science to question these stupid beliefs. The gift of salvation is free; all it requires is faith, and honestly not much of it as the historical evidence of Christ’s ministry, miracles and resurrection is thoroughly documented, and a degree of unbiased reasoning. The problem lies not in the quality of evidence, rather the will to ignorance. Because of this, many are without excuse, and will have many regrets on the day of Judgment. Continue to do your parts, but don’t be discouraged when they refuse to do theirs.
