“Doubts are the ants in the pants of faith. They keep it awake and moving.” Frederick Buechner

Everyone- pantheist, atheist, skeptic, polytheist – has to answer these questions: ‘Where did I come from ? What is life’s meaning? How do I define right from wrong and what happens to me when I die?’ Those are the fulcrum points of our existence.” Ravi Zacharias

“Preaching is to much avail, but practice is far more effective. A godly life is the strongest argument you can offer the skeptic.” Hosea Ballou

 

empty tomb

 

“If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all that he said; if he didn’t rise from the dead, then why worry about any of what he said? The issue on which everything hangs is not whether or not you like his teaching but whether or not he rose from the dead.” Timothy Keller, The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism

 

heaven

“Jesus’s resurrection is the beginning of God’s new project not to snatch people away from earth to heaven but to colonize earth with the life of heaven. That, after all, is what the Lord’s Prayer is about.” N.T. Wright  Surpised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church

 

“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 NLT
