The Difference Between Believing the Gospels and Trusting the Gospel

Although J. Warner seldom says much about his personal testimony, he gets asked about it all the time. Did the evidence persuade you, or were their people in your life who led you to Jesus? In this clip from J. Warner Wallace’s longer talk on the existence of God from the fine-tuning of the universe (based on his book, God’s Crime Scene), J. Warner provides a brief description.

    I WAS raised in a Christian home, but that didn't stop me from just going through the motions to please my parents, Sunday School teachers, pastors, etc. I was 36 or so when God got through to me about my spiritual condition. I was saved then, but it was when I learned about people like Lee Stroebel and you that my faith was grounded further. Between the two of you, I was assured that Christianity – as Jesus taught it – was TRUE.

    It's very encouraging hearing how Mr. Wallace came to faith. Although many of us came to know Christ in a more experiential way initially, the longer we investigate Christianity, the more the truth of it shapes and develops our beliefs in an intellectual manner. Glory be to God!

    I love how God meets everyone where he/she is. For some, that's irrefutable evidence, for others, an undeniable personal experience. Nevertheless, we should all be well equipped to answer the many objections that come against our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ because the gospel is TRUE and not merely based on feelings, experience or being brought up in church. There are enough false claims based on feelings and experience, and as J Warner rightly says, "It doesn't have to be true for it to be useful." Many would open their own books of 'evidence' as to why we evolved and why there is no God and some will even leave the faith after having believed for many years or fall into error that could cause many weak ones to stumble. We cannot afford to be fickle regarding the ONE thing that determines our eternal destiny and in which our ONLY hope lies.

    ▪︎"What about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?" (John 10:36)

    ▪︎“We are not stoning you for any good work, but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.” (John 10:27-33)

    ▪︎ "The Son of Man will give you everlasting life, because God the Father has set His seal on Him" (John 6:27) 

    ▪︎Jesus is God Incarnate,
    The Word became Flesh (Jesus), God took on human nature. (John 1:1-4; 14)
    So Jesus is both fully God and human…
    Jesus has 2 natures.. Both Divine and human
    Jesus as Human: ate, slept, wept, spoke to the Father and was crucified etc.
    Jesus as God: is One with the Father, raised the dead and created etc.
    Jesus was crucified paying the penalty for the sins of the whole world (1John 2:2)
    Jesus rose from the dead on the 3rd day victorious over sin and death.
    Jesus Christ atones for the sins of the whole world (1John 2:2)
    Jesus Christ and the Gospel are the final revelation (1John 2:22; 2John 1:7-11; Galatians 1:8-9; Revelation 22:13; Revelation 22:18-19)
    Amen..

    ▪︎The One True Lord God is 3 divine Persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit existing in eternal Union – inseperately, i.e. not separately or individually..
    But they work together in Union whilst also having specialised roles
    For example, where ever the Father is also is the Son and the Holy Spirit, etc.
    So the Father sends the Son (Word) who is God incarnate (Jesus being both fully God and human) and the Son sends the Holy Spirit..but they are fully the One God..
    And so the Father, Son and Holy Spirit do not speak or 'work' individually because Being in Eternal Union they are the One God..
    Amen.

    This is so true…my testimony is really so lame that anyone would say it's either rubbish or coincidence….logically they would be right…. at 61 years old and a non believer I could have said the same…but I just new it was GOD….so glad the rapture didn't come 3 years ago or I would be going through the tribulation now!
    Thank you for sharing this Vid CCC…GOD bless and keep you and yours.

    There are plenty of testimonies to the dangers of 5G, and they differ. Do these differences prove that the testimonies are true?

    We should listen to what this guy is saying. So many claim a personal testimony or religious experience that it is worthless.
    All these "Christians" who have received their testimony; had their experience; had their encounter; had their prayers answered etc come from so many different denominations or sects – believe in very different things – and often believe that they have truth on their side and the others are false; deluded; cults or the work of Satan.

    Here is a suggestion. Why not try to actually read and understand the source documents and derive your beliefs from them rather than impose pre-existing beliefs on the source documents.

    People fall from faith for several reasons, and my list by all means not conclusive. First, they likely never repented, and came to know God incompletely, as in "God loves me" and this is as far as their theology goes. And then when they are faced with having to choose God or sin, they choose sin. Another reason I can think of is they choose not to carry their cross, and bailed. The walk with God is not easy.

    I was a Muslim that had an experience with Jesus and then I became a follower of Christ. Not in a vacuum. During my process of conversion, a question came to my mind: “What will I tell my parents?” Somebody had given me a Bible prior to my conversion. I opened it and it happened to fall open to Matthew chapter 10. My eyes fell on verse 37: “Anyone who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me.” My faith in Jesus as Messiah is not based entirely on experience but experience was a huge part of it. Prior to the experience, they had piled a huge pile of evidence before me and I didn’t care. My experience with Jesus changed everything.

    I wasn’t raised in any religion growing up, as my family were agnostic. I had a vivid experience with a demon that eventually would bring me to Christ Jesus.
    I understand this contradicts your experience, but had this not occurred, I don’t know that I would have ever picked up a Bible.
