There is only one reason why I am a Christian - and it has nothing to do with our American Christian subculture, sanitized Christian music, cute messages addressing my felt-needs, morality, values, the "victorious Christian life," metro-sexual worship leaders, or supposed crowns some say I will earn. I am a Christian - by God's grace - because of the objective fact that Jesus Christ walked out of the grave 2,000 years ago.
If Jesus has not been raised, I am to be pitied. If Christ's body is ever recovered and his resurrection is proven to be a hoax, I am out. I will be on the first flight to Amsterdam ready to party like it's 1999... for tomorrow I die.
