This isn’t a blanket endorsement of Stephen Colbert or The Colbert Nation… but I’m just posting this so that you’ll see the lengths to which some people are going to deceive others or to discredit the Bible. I first saw this at an apologetics conference this weekend during a talk by Dr. Doug Geivett. He was talking about evidence and why it matters — evidence for Christian theology. He made an interesting comment regarding evidence:
Evidence has never mattered more than it does today.
Evidence has never mattered less than it does today.
Do you get that? Let it sink down in your ears.
I’ve been mulling this thought over and over. I have been trying to articulate this for years — that the Bible matters. Truth matters. Knowing God matters. Knowing God’s Word matters. Faith matters. Obedience to God’s Word matters. But it seems — if you listen to or read books by mainstream pastors — like none of all that matters all that much. Truly… if you follow mainstream preacher/teacher sorts, you will find that *the Truth* doesn’t always matter so much as what it is that they think that matters.
One thought on “On Colbert…”
I totally agree. I started this wiki (think wikipedia): http://www.apologetics-wiki.com so that we could put some of that evidence together on a wiki. All Christians are welcome to edit it…
