The human will continues to fly the red against after the human intellect raises the white flag to God.
Many rational reasons exist why we should accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Among them are: he’s God’s Eternal Son John 3:13; in God’s mind Jesus was crucified eternally I Peter 1:20; he’s the image of the invisible God Colossians 1:15, the exact representation of God’s being Hebrews 1:3; he holds in himself the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form Colossians 2:9. He demonstrated all the above by willingly sacrificing himself on Calvary and, after three days and nights, rose bodily from the grave. That was never done before and hasn’t been done since.
True, many don’t accept these Biblically-stated truths about Jesus Christ. That’s their problem. They must explain him and his continuing impact on history without the above—and that’s impossible.
But many people agree with the above truths without committing themselves to his Saviorhood and Lordship. Why? Because they WILL not to obey him. Percy Shelley decided that God didn’t exist: because his idealism considered the abuse of power in religion, politics and commerce disproved GOD. He didn’t even consider, let alone investigate, the human WILL as the cause of evil.
How casually unbelievers and believers alike excuse humanity’s flagrant rejection of God as the cause of all human problems. They don’t want us to assume responsibility and want God to assume all the blame when any wrong afflicts the race. That’s stupid. God won’t accept any blame, let alone all.
The human mind accepts the validity of God long before the human WILL bows before evidence the human mind accepts. Remember that when talking with unbelievers and believers alike.
