this week's video

 

bottom lines

  • Faith is one of the most powerful tools at humanity's disposal.
  • The thing that makes Jesus different from other religious leaders isn't something he taught; it's something he did. He died and came back to life.
  • Christianity requires faith in a person. This is why for anyone investigating Christianity, the first question that must be answered is, Who is Jesus?
