There was no such thing as PolitiFact yet, but the Apostle Paul absolutely DARED anyone to fact-check him. He didn’t go around trying to sell people a fairy tale. His message wasn’t a fabricated myth with no evidential proof. No, Paul “reasoned” with people (Acts 17:2,17; 18:4,19; 19:8,9). He used easily investigable facts and eyewitness accounts of people who were still living.
He begged everyone to ask the people who literally just saw these events whether he was making them up or not.
God, Himself, said, “let us reason together,” (Isa. 1:18-19). You see, LOGIC is involved. He didn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a SOUND MIND (2 Tim. 1:7). We do not “check our brains at the door” and float around on wishful thinking. We are anchored in rock-solid truth that meets today’s legal standard of beyond a reasonable doubt.
Jesus told Pilate that everyone on the side of truth listens to Him (John 18:37).
Reason is on our side. The Gospel is reason. It is truth. If you are not listening to Jesus, then you are not on the side of reason and truth. What side are you on? Investigate the facts for yourself!
