The Honest Apostles

(Just thought I'd let you all know that I have had my broken arm operated on....I have had a pin put in and it is still very painfull. I have been assured that the pain will eventually go away, I pray that it does, yet in all this I thank God the Father that He was with me through all this as on my own I would not have managed to cope with it all!)

In 2 Corinthians 4 v 2 we read, "We have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty....
not walking in craftiness.... not handling the Word of God deceitfully......
but by manifestation of the truth.....commending ourselves to every man's conscience
in the sight of God....."

One of the most useless and foolish arguments of unbelievers is to accuse the New testament
writers of trying to foist off tales of a "super natural Christ" on to gullible people. I mean....really!

And the scriptures written by these men contain strong condemnation of all dishonesty and deceit...
so it would be impossible that they, all  at the same time, unbeknowns to each other, would do such a thing, such a big conspiracy!
Paul's claim in the above text would be the worst kind of hypocracy....if this was the case......
And the Apostle Peter said..."Wherefore, laying aside all malice and all guile and hypocracies, and envies, and evil speaking.......as new born babes, desiring the sincere milk of the word..." 1 Peter v 1-2.
And John warned...."All liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone....Rev21 v 8...
But......the clincher was that they were all prepared to suffer and suffer horribly, for their honesty and sincerety.
Paul said...."Even unto this present hour, we both hunger and thirst and are naked, and are buffeted and have no certain dwelling place.....and we labour with our own hands (meaning no one supported them).....being reviled.....we bless.....
             being persecuted....we suffer it.....

             being defamed.......we entreat....

we are made as the filth of the world....and are the offscouring of all things unto this day....." yet....
1 Cor 4 v 11-13
All the Apostles and writers of the New Testament (Except John, but he also suffered severe persecution throughout his long life)  eventually died as martyrs for their faith.....and it is incredible to think that they would have suffered all that.......for what??
A message they knew to be  lie???
I don't think so!
We can have complete confidence that the New Testament records are honest reports of sincere and Godly men....                                                                                     Thank you Henry Morris Ph.D
Bless you,
