“They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.” (I John 4:5)
True Christians are not like the unbelievers who refuse to believe in the Biblical Jesus. The unbelievers talk and think with a different viewpoint than we do. Their eyes have been closed because they do not want to repent of their sins.
Just yesterday I was reading an article written by someone who has the viewpoint of the world. It denied the truthfulness of the New Testament and then said something to the effect of: “All first century non-Christian sources that mention Christ’s ressurrection were obviously forged by Christians at a later date, since this doctrine developed later.”
The statement above is circular reasoning. It presupposes that Christ could not have risen from the dead, and therefore the non-Christian writings (like the Josephus account) that say He did must have obviously been corrupted at a later date.
I will not allow myself to get caught up in their conspiracy theories and their complicated questions of “what if.” I do not think from the viewpoint of the world, nor do I wish to. I believe in the word of God which never changes, unlike the theories of man which are always in flux.
