Liberals detest the historical fact that Jesus Christ arose from the dead.

In doing so they betray the fact, that while they may attempt to embrace the Son of God as an icon of compassion, they have little actual intellectually honest use for the message or meaning of what He represented while on the earth. This rejection, hate, and rebellion against God neither lessens His reality, nor justifies their actions, attitudes, and behaviors in this life.

The worldview of modern liberalism is dependent upon a central truth- that God is either nonexistent or irrelevant. His mere existence is a condemnation of their thinking, and His involvement in mankind's affairs guarantees their conviction in the court of absolute morality.

As a writer and broadcaster I have never been shy to point to my belief - not just in the God who created me, but also in His Son. In referring to His reality in my life liberals have wrongly presumed that I fancy myself speaking "for God," or "putting words in His mouth." I have been criticized for "pretending to know the mind and heart of God" more times than I can count. But such criticisms are misguided for the substance of the claims is false. I do not now, nor have ever presumed to speak on God's behalf. He does not now, nor has He ever needed my assistance to carry His message. No argument that I have ever put into print was ever based on my self-generated view of what God thinks.

Liberals never cared about the integrity of such claims to begin with. Ultimately their battle has never been with a single thing that I've written, spoken, or broadcast. Rather the struggles within their own conscience, soul, and experience are against the truth that my assumptions rest upon. Most notably that Jesus Christ was dead but is no longer.

If Jesus Christ had stayed buried, the issue of His divine nature would have ended with Him. Yet if he did in fact rise, if he did in fact defy death, and constitute a mockery of sin, Satan, and his fallen angels - then that miraculous act alone would command the attention of the human experience. As it should!

If Jesus Christ was able to do what no other being has ever done - then the argument over whether God exists is concluded, and if God exists then his mere existence demands not merely our attention but our obedience. And if our obedience draws us to belief in Christ's completed death, burial, and resurrection then we obtain permanent relationship with Him. This relationship then grants us life everlasting - and we in response should live our lives based on gratitude for God's gift of life to us.
