To The Daily Sun,
In response to James Veverka's letter of Jan. 31, Jim I talk to (God) every day. He answers me also. He makes promises and keeps them. He heals my body. I've seen his face. I know the sound of his voice. No one who knows me has ever accused me of be crazy, though I must admit some who don't know me have. As to Jesus being God, if you read the gospel accounts you will see that He was crucified for announcing Himself to be so.
As to his being historical, as I understand it the New Testament is unique among texts from antiquity, in that there are more surviving copies of texts and fragments from a closer period of time to the actual occurrence than any other document from the ancient era. There's nothing even close. If you deny its authenticity you have to throw out all writings from antiquity.
Jim says, "Nobody knows if there is an intelligent first cause." Poor Jim. He reminds me of an article I read a while back where a group of scientists proved that animals have feelings. Really, I never would have known that. I don't know how much money these guys spent discovering what millions of pet owner throughout the generations have know intuitively, but you know, we couldn't have known that. We needed this group of scientists to tell us. Right Jim?
