Don't Reject the Bible and Jesus Without Examining the Evidence

by Bill Rudge

As I shared Christ with a young man to whom I was giving a ride, he responded, "Bill, don't waste your time. I don't believe in Jesus Christ, and I don't believe in the Bible." I responded, "That's fine. You have a right to believe whatever you want, but don't be so foolish as to reject the Bible and Jesus Christ without first examining the overwhelming evidence."

I then shared with him some of the archaeological discoveries that have established the historical accuracy of innumerable Biblical details, as well as the scientific evidence, and the accuracy and superiority of Biblical health and nutrition principles. I shared a few of the messianic prophecies in the Old Testament that had been made at least 400 years before Christ walked on earth, explaining the mathematical impossibility for anyone to fulfill just a few of these prophecies, yet Jesus fulfilled them all. I explained to him how the evidence of the resurrection is undeniable and asked him what other religious leader has an empty tomb.

I asked him to consider the numerous Biblical prophecies written almost 2,000 years ago concerning the last days in which we are now living –– prophecies foretelling a one-world government, a one-world monetary system, and a one-world religion. The specific details and exactness of these and many other prophecies that are being fulfilled right before our eyes would have been impossible to foretell without divine inspiration.

Finally, I shared the reality of Jesus Christ through the tremendous way in which He has transformed my life and millions of others throughout history, as well as the miraculous interventions the Lord has done in my life and ministry. These evidences and many more, are the reasons why I totally gave my life to Christ!
