12. Special Edition- The Resurrection

Click here to hear episode #12.

This episode contains a live recording of a talk I gave for the Campus Crusade for Christ ministry at Saginaw Valley State University (where I attend college). In this talk I argue that historical evidence provides a solid foundation for belief in the Resurrection. In this episode I also review The Son Rises by William Lane Craig.

See the full transcript.

  1. Circumspectly. The further a man falls away from the Lord, the bigger fool he becomes, for sin will always make people do things that they do not want to do. We have seen that on the television screens, how celebrities make huge fools of themselves. You will find that all people who do ridiculous things like that will have no knowledge of Christ or His Words. Some of them confess that they know God, but in words and actions they deny Him, Romans 1:22, “Professing themselves to be wise, they become fools”.

    Psalm 14:1, “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” I guess this is the first sign that will give man’s character away, for it tells us about the way he leads his life. Characteristics of a fool as defined in the Bible. – First you cannot trust him, for he has no fear of God. He despises Christians who follow Christ’s teachings, he hates the knowledge of God’s Word when he hears it, he becomes a companion with other foolish people and he will desire to be with them, drinking heavily and speaking profanities, he also becomes very crooked in his transactions. Full of deceit, this must surely describe many that are in the world today. I guess that this is a picture of sin itself in our world, and an example of how we must not let sin reign in our hearts. For if we do, then sin will make us also do foolish things, things which we would be very ashamed of. Let us always come to Jesus, asking His forgiveness, for He is the power and the wisdom of God. “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise.” Ephesians 5:15. Now the word circumspect means to be weary and watchful in our conduct. An example of this can be found in Exodus 23:13, “And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.” You see from this scripture that a man may ruin himself through careless speaking, so, let us walk in the wisdom and the power of God by being circumspect.

    “Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.” Proverbs ch 8:6-11.
