How many believe that Timothy McVeigh was guilty of the OKC bombing? Did you know no witnesses watched Timothy McVeigh load explosives into a Ryder rental truck, drive the vehicle to the front of the federal building in Oklahoma City, detonate the bomb. Yet he was convicted of that crime.

While not one of the 137 people called to the witness stand had seen McVeigh commit the crime. A businessman said McVeigh rented a Ryder truck, a friend said McVeigh talked about bombing the building out of anger against the government, and a scientist said McVeigh’s clothes contained a residue of explosives when he was arrested. All adding up to a convincing web of evidence from which McVeigh was unable to release himself.

Many have denied the resurrection of Christ because they did not see His resurrected body for themselves. They say there is not enough evidence to prove it. Yet, there is more evidence that Christ is risen, than there is that McVeigh is guilty of the bombing.

Story: A Muslim in Africa became a Christian and some of his friends asked him why. He said, “Well, it is like this: suppose you were going down a road and suddenly the road forked in two directions. And you didn’t know which way to go. If you met two men at the fork – one dead and one alive – which one would you ask to show you the way?”

Muslims and other cults serve a dead lord… Romans 1:18-25… But as Christians we serve a living savior. He loves us, guides us, strengthens us, enables us, comforts us, etc. because He lives…
