I wish you would bear with me in a little foolishness. Do bear with me!
Do you know anyone who is open to the idea of becoming a Christian, but they find some aspect of faith to be (literally) unbelievable? “Oh I just can’t believe all those animals fit on the ark” or “How can you think the earth was created in 6 days” or “you mean to tell me you believe ‘that’” or maybe even “Science has completely disproven the Bible!” Well, I certainly beg to differ with that last one… but I think you get the idea of what I’m saying. It can be helpful to encourage people to “slow down… back up…” I find that what most people actually object to is rarely something that is an explicit teaching of the Bible or perhaps it’s something they don’t really understand. The fact of the matter is, Christianity is the best explanation of the world around us, it may sound like foolishness at first, until you start comparing it to the alternatives. The Bible is true, if something in the Bible sounds like it can’t be true, bear with me in a little foolishness, there is a good answer to your question.
