Chuck Colson on the Resurrection

Richard NixonI know the resurrection is a fact, and Watergate proved it to me.

How?

Because 12 men testified they had seen Jesus raised from the dead, then they proclaimed that truth for 40 years, never once denying it. Every one was beaten, tortured, stoned and put in prison. They would not have endured that if it weren’t true.

Chuck ColsonWatergate embroiled 12 of the most powerful men in the world and they couldn’t keep a lie for three weeks. You’re telling me 12 apostles could keep a lie for 40 years?

Absolutely impossible.

    ♥ Did you know that all the disciples died for the cause (to share the Word of God, the life and resurrection of Christ Jesus)?
    Peter was crucified upside down in Rome, Matthew killed in Ethiopia; Thomas in India, and John poisoned in Rome. Paul was beheaded by the Romans. James, brother of Apostle John, is captured and beheaded as the disciples watch. But they failed to kill Apostle John through poison, and instead exiled him and it’s in exile that he wrote the final book in the Bible, Revelation! All because they had followed and served Christ Jesus,..they knew Him, loved Him and desired for ALL people to know of the ETERNAL LIFE offered to them through their Savior and Lord, Christ Jesus of Nazareth. ♥

    Romans 5:3-5: “And that’s not all. We are full of joy even when we suffer. We know that our suffering gives us the strength to go on (perseverance). The strength to go on produces character. Character produces hope. And HOPE will never let us down. God has poured His love into our hearts. He did it through the Holy Spirit, whom He has given to us.”
