Squidgy Things – John 5 30-47

Posted by aftershock.org.uk on March 26th, 2008

It’s incredible what people are happy to believe. In the not too distant past, people were happy to believe that the world was flat. In the very recent past, some people believed that the colour of your skin had an impact on your intelligence. Some of your mates are happy to accept that the world was created in some sought of cosmic explosion. Many of your mates believe that their ancestors were squidgy slime based creatures living in a swamp. And people were and are happy to believe these things, either with no evidence or with massive holes in the evidence or theories. And yet, today, just as in the days that Jesus walked upon this earth, people struggle to believe the fact that Jesus is the Son of God. Despite the fact that Jesus fulfilled the predictions of the prophets that came years before him. Despite the fact that Jesus life is chronicled, not only in the Bible, but with much other historical documentation. I guess, it just goes to prove one thing. It doesn’t matter how much evidence exists or does not exists for Jesus being the son of God, it is all down to the individual. At the end of the day, whether we or your mates believe in Jesus, it doesn’t impact whether he is the Son of God or not. Our belief in Jesus, doesn’t make him anymore the Son of God that he already is. Other people’s disbelief in Jesus, doesn’t make him any less the Son of God. It’s down to each and everyone of us, to ask God to reveal to us his existence and for us to make our own choice. Of course we could always choose to believe in squidgy things that live in a swamp.
