My apologies if you’ve heard this or if my recall doesn’t bring justice to this event...it actually happened and I must summarize but you’ll get the point. So I heard the other day a story about a debate between a Christian and an atheist. The Christian is a simple man with no tremendous accolades or recognitions of worldly accomplishments. The atheist is a recognized world known professor at Oxford University. Debate is the old school typical does God exist deal...The believer ends with with this....Professor. A simple situation and question for you sir. Your car breaks down. You’re in the inner city. It’s past midnight. It’s dark and an unknown area of town. You get out and lift the hood but there is no obvious issue so you’re stuck. Suddenly a group of 10-12 young burly men bust out the door of a nearby apartment complex. They are moving quickly and headed directly at you. Their thunderous footsteps echo off the walls of an otherwise empty street. With vigor the believer asks this...SIR. DO YOU OR DO YOU NOT find comfort because you know this group of men......just left a Bible study?? The professor’s answer was silence.
