God has been under attack in the world almost since the beginning of time, but He and those who believe in Him are under attack more now than ever before. Atheism is increasing and atheists are becoming more vocal. This podcast is an ongoing debate response to such people as Richard Dawkins, Bill Maher, Stephen Hawking and others who don’t believe in God and who preach atheism to the world. This podcast is also designed to equip Christians to do what the Holy Scriptures command, and that is to, “earnestly contend for the faith” and to “be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh us a reason of the hope that is in us”. But more importantly, this podcast is designed to give you a reason to believe in God and His Son Jesus Christ.

Our Reasons to Believe Scripture Passage for today is 2 Corinthians 10:5. It reads, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”

Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from Lee Strobel. He said, “For me, apologetics proved to be the turning point of my life and eternity. I’m thankful for the scholars who so passionately and effectively defend the truth of Christianity—and today my life’s goal is to do my part in helping others get answers to the questions that are blocking them in their spiritual journey toward Christ.”

Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled “The Divinity of Christ” part 23 from “The Handbook of Christian Apologetics” by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli.

We will now continue looking at the implications of the flat-out contradictions between Jesus’ Judaism and the universal teaching of all gurus:

Suppose everyone misunderstood Jesus? Suppose He tried to teach the philosophy of the mystics, being one Himself, but the Jews simply failed to understand Him—both His friends and His enemies? That is the scenario you must believe if you take Jesus for a guru. In that case, Jesus was the worst teacher in history. On all eight of the above points, He was understood to teach the distinctively Jewish, not mystical, doctrine—at all times, by everyone, until the twenty-first century!

So if Jesus really was teaching mysticism, if Jesus was not a rabbi but an “enlightened master”, then He was not an enlightened master. For He totally deluded everyone always about everything!
