Are Christians called to testify to a historical event or a personal faith
This Sunday, Pat Oja, one of our members brought up an interesting point in the Sunday Bible Class, in regards to the faith we share. Seems that most of the people living in our society today are not able to find a connection to God. Modern times technology and scientific advances in large have replaced the need that God supplied in the lives of those living in the 1st Century and yet majority of the Christians have memorized and repeat a 2,000 old story, that besides being a historical fact, has no relevancy to most people today.
Are we as Christians supposed to only share the story as found in the Bible? or are we to live out our relationship with Christ as the Apostle did? What I mean by that is that most Christians seem to be well equipped to speak about the Christ in the Bible but not so well equipped to speak about the Christ in their life.
