The Divinity of Christ, Part 25 (The Reasons to Believe #144)

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 Job 38:1-5. It reads, “Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?”

Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from C.S. Lewis. He said, “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and, if true, of infinite importance. The one thing it cannot be is moderately important.”

Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled “The Divinity of Christ, Part 25” from “The Handbook of Christian Apologetics” by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli.

The authors continue with the first part of their conclusion to this chapter subtitled, “Why Many Are Not Persuaded”

On the one hand, all possible alternatives have been refuted. On the other hand, the Christian alternative has not. Instead, it has been shown to be the only explanation for the data:

1. It is intrinsically possible. It has no internal or external inconsistencies. Not one fact of history, science, philosophy, or common knowledge refutes it.

2. It is probable. God could well have done this. A good, wise, clever, loving God might well do just what the Gospels say he did in Christ: become human and die to save us.

3. It works. It has enlightened and transformed lives. It has created saints who lived and died for this “lie” or “lunacy” or “myth”. It has been believed by the wise, lived by the holy and longed for by the skeptical. Even Freud saw it as wishful thinking, as fairy tale, that is, as desirable, as too good to be true. As Tolkien put it, “There has never been a tale which men more wished was true.”

4. It gives the greatest hope and meaning and purpose ever proposed to human life. We are to become saints here and little Christs hereafter. What a destiny!

5. It is the only rational, honest alternative. Data and argument compel us to it.

Why, then, are many not compelled?

Our Reasons to Believe Scripture Passage for today is 2 Timothy 3:16. It reads, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”

Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from William Lane Craig. He said, “If Christians could be trained to to provide solid evidence for what they believe and good answers to unbelievers’ questions and objections, then the perception of Christians would slowly change. Christians would be seen as thoughtful people to be taken seriously rather than as emotional fanatics or buffoons. The Gospel would be a real alternative for people to embrace.”

Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled “The Divinity of Christ” part 24 from “The Handbook of Christian Apologetics” by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli.

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

Jews believe in objective truth (this is one of the reasons they have frequently been in the forefront of science), while Hindus do not. This in turn is because Jews believe in the real distinction between human consciousness and its object, both its supernatural Object (God) and its natural object (the material world), but Hindus believe these three things are fundamentally identical. We can hardly think of a more impossible synthesis than one between Judaism and Hinduism—the very synthesis proposed by the “Jesus as guru” theory.

Also, if the historical Jesus was fundamentally different from the Jesus of the Gospels—if the historical Jesus never claimed divinity, or if He meant it in the Eastern, pantheistic way—then we are back with the “two-layer” theory of the Gospels that we have already refuted. There is no evidence whatsoever of an “earlier” layer different from the Gospels we have. There is also no motive for the arising of the new layer, the creation of traditional Christianity, if it was not from Jesus Himself.

In fact, if it was not Jesus but the twelve apostles who invented orthodox Christianity with its divine Christ, then we need to multiply by twelve the misunderstanding and its motives. If the invention came from later generations, from “the early Christian community”, its difficulty is multiplied five hundred or five thousand or (by the second century) five hundred thousand times. The later the lie, or forgery, or misunderstanding, or myth, or hallucination—whatever alternative to the Gospels’ account of a Christ Who claimed divinity and meant it literally—the more impossible it is to explain.

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!

Our Reasons to Believe Scripture Passage for today is 1 Thessalonians 5:20-22. It reads, “Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.”

Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from John Stott. He said, “The chief reason people do not know God is not because He hides from them but because they hide from Him.”

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

7. The Jewish God is a moralist. He Himself is moral, righteous, holy; and His command to us is: “Be holy, for I am holy.” He gives commandments. He has a will. He discriminates. He hates evil and loves good.

The pantheistic god of the gurus has no will, no law, no preferences. He is totally nondiscriminating, like modern amoral Westerners. For the gurus, morality is at best a preliminary for enlightenment, a means to free the mind from passion (and love); at worst it is a dualistic illusion. It is our invention, not God’s. Their god is “beyond good and evil.”

8. Perhaps the major reason why Eastern religions are so popular among modern ex-Jews and ex-Christians is that they have no hell. There may be temporary purgatories — for example, reincarnations in this life and bardos in the next (The Tibetan Book of the Dead) — but everyone automatically gets to heaven eventually. The god of the gurus does not judge or punish sin. There is no sin, no separation from God, for God is the All.

Biblical and orthodox Judaism, like Christianity, teaches an eternal, ultimate justice and judgment. Not everyone is automatically guaranteed salvation. The existence of hell logically follows from two other distinctively Judeo-Christian doctrines: the distinction between the Creator and the creature, and human free will. Pantheists cannot believe in hell because for them there is nothing but God, there can be no being apart from God. Determinists do not believe in hell because we are not free to choose it. Orthodox Jews and Christians believe in the possibility of hell (eternal separation from God) because we are not parts of God, and we are free to reject Him. Which side is Jesus on? Jesus clearly, strongly and evidently believed in hell, and talked a lot about it.

So we have eight flat-out contradictions, all of them crucially important, between the teaching of Jesus as we have it in the New Testament and the teaching of the Eastern mystics and gurus. To classify Jesus as a guru is as accurate as classifying Marx as a capitalist.

In our next broadcast, we will continue looking at the final contradiction.

—PRAYER—

Now, if you are listening today, and you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour, allow me to show you how.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now this is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9-13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Until next time, my friend, please keep in mind these reasons to believe. God bless!

Our Reasons to Believe Scripture Passage for today is Acts 17:22-25. It reads, “Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things.”

Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from William Lane Craig. He said, “When a person refuses to come to Christ it is never just because of lack of evidence or because of intellectual difficulties: at root, he refuses to come because he willingly ignores and rejects the drawing of God’s Spirit on his heart. No one in the final analysis really fails to become a Christian because of lack of arguments; he fails to become a Christian because he loves darkness rather than light and wants nothing to do with God.”

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

6. For the Jews, God is the active Initiator. That is why He is always imaged as male — as King, Husband, Warrior. (Another reason is His transcendence). Religion is not our search for God but God’s search for us. Our search for God fails: the Tower of Babel; Job 1-37; the false, popular prophets; human expectations for the Messiah. God’s search for us succeeds: the call of Abraham, Job 38-42, the true prophets, Jesus.

For the Eastern mystics, God is passive. We find Him, not He us. He is timeless, we alone act in time (until we realize that we too are timeless, that we and He [or it] are identical). Thus the God of the mystics is asexual or bisexual, all-inclusive, not other. Only Judaism, of all ancient religions, insisted on exclusively masculine imagery for God (of course this is not to be understood literally; God has no body) because only Judaism knew God’s full otherness and transcendence.

Our Reasons to Believe Scripture Passage for today is Isaiah 50:4. It reads, “The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.”

Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from Blaise Pascal. He said, “There is enough light for those who only desire to see, and enough obscurity for those who have a contrary disposition.”

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

4. For the mystics, time and history are also ultimately unreal, illusory, projections of unenlightened consciousness. Enlightenment consists of emancipation from time. Salvation is found in timelessness. Buddha forbade his disciples to perform miracles because that would have fostered the illusion that the temporal, material world was real and important. But for the Jews, time and matter (which are relative to each other) are real because God created them. For Judaism, God is known and loved and lived within time. Judaism is a historical religion; God has revealed himself in historical events.

For the mystic, salvation consists in going back beyond the birth of the ego to the simplicity of the womb. This is often done through breathing exercises, as in yoga and Taoism, where your breathing becomes like that of a baby, then almost that of an unborn baby, with inhaling and exhaling no longer distinguishable, so that ego and world are no longer distinguishable. The end sought is the realization of our primordial identity with all things. But for the Jews, salvation consists in God doing his thing (“the Day of the Lord”) in the future, in time, in history, in the messianic age. Mystics look way from time or back; Jews look at time and forward.

5. Mystics believe God is unknowable, except wordlessly in mystical experience. Jews believe God made himself known publicly in deeds and words, divinely inspired writings. (Remember, the question is not which of these two opinions is right, but whether they are the same or opposite. If opposite, Jesus the Jew could not have been a guru.)

In our next broadcast, we will look at the next contradictions.
