Thank you for beginning a journey that I myself had taken several years ago. My name is Jeff and I have provided these pages as a launching point for you to begin your search for the truth. Regardless of how you ended up on this website, I hope you will take up the challenge to search out the truth with a logical and rational mind. As my Lord put it, “Come now, and let us reason together…”(Isaiah 1:18).
I myself had difficulty with the so called “mythology” that I saw in the Bible. I grew up attending church, however, I never really fully accepted all that I was told. My logical mind could not blindly accept the “dogma” that was being fed to me on a weekly basis. I loved mathematics, science, logical and deductive reasoning; and because of that, I had trouble accepting the tenets of the Bible.
If such events took place in the Bible, then where was the evidence? For every action there is an opposite yet equal reaction. If an action had taken place (Noah’s flood, Joshua’s long day, destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah) then where was the reaction? There had to be something left behind to prove that the event took place. When I wrecked my parents car as a teenager, there was plenty of evidence to prove what I did. Would it be the same for the Bible? If not, then why believe it? I was like doubting Thomas that said, “Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.” (John 20:25)
My mind was also plagued with the question: “If there’s so many religions in the world, how would I know which one was right?” Are they all correct, or is there just one way? And if there was only one way, then how would I know; how could I be sure? Did God provide a way for us to discern correctly or did He just leave us blind and in the dark? Did He provide His signature; His stamp of approval?
This and many other questions weighed heavily upon my mind and my heart for a number of years; however, I never searched out the answers because I thought they would not be there. And if they were not there, then why waste my time? I had more to do than to drudge through the muck of religion and mythology to come out the other end with nothing to show for it.
I now know it was not a waste of time. It was worth the effort to search out such an important question as this. It will take time; however, don’t quit. Your eternal destiny is in the balance.
I can say with confidence that there is more than enough evidence available to convict you that the God of the Bible is the true God of the universe. You can believe it from cover to cover. But again, don’t take my word for it. Search it out for yourself.
The evidence I found didn’t bring me to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. It was the conviction of my sins by the Holy Spirit that made me realize that I could not save myself. It was only through the shed blood of Jesus Christ that I could be redeemed. It did however, remove the stumbling blocks that kept me from drawing near to Him.
Please understand that the information contained within these pages will always be in dispute with others that have opposing views. But God has given you a rational mind to reason these things out for yourselves. This information is presented here for you to see that God did provide evidence of Himself.
I pray that your journey will be fruitful and bring you to the Way, and the Truth, and the Life; because there is but only one Way. Then maybe you too can say as Thomas did when he saw the evidence; “… My Lord and my God” (John 20:28)
