Episode Info: Our Reasons to Believe Scripture verse for today is John 6:47. It reads, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life." Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from C.S. Lewis. He said, "If Christianity is untrue, then no honest man will want to believe it, however helpful it might be; if it is true, every honest man will want to believe it, even if it gives him no help at all.” Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "The Divinity of Christ" Part 3 from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli. Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli go on to talk about "The Importance of the Issue": The issue of the divinity of Christ is crucially important for at least six reasons: 1. The divinity of Christ is the most distinctively Christian doctrine of all. A Christian is most essentially defined as one who believes this. And no other religion has a doctrine that is even similar. Buddhists do not believe that Buddha was God. Muslims do not believe that Muhammad was God: "There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his prophet." 2. The essential difference between orthodox, traditional, biblical, apostolic, historic, creedal Christianity and revisionist, modernist, liberal Christianity is right here. The essential modernist revision is to see Christ simply as the ideal man, or "the man for others"; as a prophet, rabbi, philosopher, teacher, social worker, psychologist, psychiatrist, reformer, sage or magician -- but not God in the flesh.
