The Death and Resurrection of Christ Is the Greatest Event In History

By: Curtis Ophoven 0 Comments   4/22/2011

Without the death of Christ we would never be free from the grip of sin that delivers men to death. And without His resurrection, we would have no hope in a new life and in our future resurrection with Christ.

The mess that Adams' sin caused humanity left God no other choice, because only He was capable of the tremendous love that it took to reconcile our relationship with Him.  Only God was in a position to fix the mess that sin brought into the world. We were helpless and unable to save ourselves from the grip of death that our sin required.

It is also interesting to note that God knew before he created humanity, that we would sin and He would have to give His only Son in order to reconcile our relationship, and yet He created us anyway.

The death of Christ was foreknown before the foundation of the world (1 Peter 1:20), and Jesus was with God when they created the world. Jesus knew before He created the world that He would one day need to die for the sins of the world to free us from the slavery of sin, purchasing us with His blood.

No other event in history is as important or as powerful at this. The amount of love that was required of God to give His Son’s life for ours is immeasurable by any means in heaven or earth.  Nothing can be compared to the love that God showed towards us.

Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design

This book is arguably the best case for intelligent design as of 2011. Meyer shows the empirical evidence, and historical scientific reasoning. Without a question, the evidence of how DNA is constructed points to a very intelligent designer. No one in the scientific community has any other reasonable explanation for the signature of an intelligent designer that has been uncovered by DNA research.

Why You Can’t Stay Silent: A Biblical Mandate to Shape Our Culture

Tom Minnery believes that Christians not only have a mandate to proclaim the gospel, but to see it exemplified in society as well. He believes that we are not really forced with choosing one or the other: either evangelize or do social reform. He says we can and should do both simultaneously. He refutes arguments that Christians shouldn't get involved in "the world" and that the church's primary responsibility is evangelism rather than social activism. The author emphasizes that for too long the church has remained silent regarding the moral decay surrounding it.

One God, One Truth: The Clear and Simple Evidence

It gives definitive and accurate data on why the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the one true God of the Universe. Not only does it give evidence on the accuracy of the Bible but it gives proof of the errors in other religions in a sensitive and loving manner. It is not a book focused on putting down people of other faiths but rather a loving approach to help others recognize the one true God. I highly recommend this book to every Christian who has people in their life that they want to impact with the truth.

The Case for Christ

The purpose of this book is to determine if there's credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God. Lee Strobel interviews a dozen scholars, with doctorates from Cambridge, Princeton, Brandeis, and other top-flight institutions, who are recognized authorities on Jesus. The evidence is astounding.
