History tells us that the early church could not help themselves but tell of the resurrection of Jesus. I don’t know how many of you have seen the film ‘Liar, Liar’ starring Jim Carrey? The Film was made about 6 years ago and Jim Carrey plays a lawyer who tells lots of lies. He gets lots of results in court, but he has become an unreliable husband and an erratic, inconsistent father. However, in true fairytale (Hollywood) style, Jim Carrey is suddenly unable to lie. He speaks the truth about everything and in many ways it gets him in to trouble, but it does result in his family relationships being restored. The early Christians had to tell the truth about Jesus. He was alive and they could not lie; and although it got them into loads of trouble with the religious authorities, family relationships were restored and the church grew.
