The Honest See

Simon Greenleaf (1783-1853), esteemed Harvard law professor, admitted he didn't believe in Christ's resurrection. 

 "Have you considered the evidence?" a student challenged. 

Greenleaf taught his students to study all evidence before making conclusions, so he undertook an honest study of Christ's resurrection, found the evidence compelling, and became a Christian. 

Dr. Francis Crick (1916-2004) won the Nobel Prize for discovering DNA. 

He admitted DNA couldn't have come about by chance and said the origin of life was "almost a miracle." However, Crick mocked Christianity the remainder of his life. 

The Bible tells us that people "suppress the truth ... because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse." Romans 1:18-20

Let's thank God that He has given us so many proofs of His existence and goodness.

  1. Very interesting post. Almost like the two thieves on crosses next to Jesus. One saw Him for who He was, the other mocked. Some will see, some will choose not to. May we continue to do our part to spread the Good News, and pray for God to reap a big harvest!

    GOD BLESS!
