A woman I know posted this on her Facebook.
Over 35 children started their walk with Jesus today & the number continues to grow! Pray for all the children who have begun to ask questions about Jesus & what He means to them. Watching those little hands go up this morning gave me a much needed energy boost!! A special Thank You & many prayers for all those crew leaders who spent some special minutes with those kids! You were being lifted up the entire day!!
She is an unordained Children’s Minister at The Big Popular Baptist Church. It took every ounce of energy for me to not ask, “Just what kind of questions are they asking? What answers are you giving them?” I’m doing my very best to stay nice over there, you know.
Two months ago, my best friend told me it was perfectly fine to question the existence of Jesus at her church, because “truth is truth. My church has the answers to these questions.” Kay, who is intelligent, educated, and rational in every other instance, was shocked when I told her there was very little historic documentation of Jesus and none at all of his great miracles, the supposed ‘proof’ of his divinity. In fact, Roman documentation proves the opposite. There was no great census, not even a city called Nazareth.
She honestly didn’t know that, and in fact, thought I was dead wrong. She said there was a vast amount of Roman documentation proving the divinity of Jesus. I told her to find it for me. As I said, she is smart; this is hardly a difficult challenge for her. I’m still waiting for her response.
