No Cleverly Invented Stories

II Peter 1:16-21

(Resurrection Sunday: April 4, 1999)

Pastor Eric J. Hanson

The Gospel of Jesus Christ rests upon a firm foundation of eyewitness accounts of His resurrection and ascension. There are no cleverly invented stories either. These witnesses paid a huge price of imprisonment, rejection, and martyrdom for standing up for the truth that Jesus Christ is the risen Lord and only savior of mankind!
