When in Doubt of God’s Existence and Christianity’s Integrity – Jonathan Ojapa

There’s something interesting that I come across very often these days. Read on and think with me

In recent times, there has been a rise of freedom-ness or as termed, liberalism which has enabled many people to become very open about their doubts with God’s existence and Christianity’s integrity.

Truth be told, this is no news. If indeed everyone was in sync with the TRUTH about God and His Gospel, we can all pack our bags and go into our Glory right this moment. Unfortunately, that’s not the case but fortunately, they have us (Christ’s Church) to point them in the right direction; carrying out all that Jesus has commissioned us for before our departure or his return.

Hollup, Hollup, I still haven’t gotten to the point yet, the above was to set a context for the ”interesting thing” I have come across. Read on and think with me.

Years ago, With the rise of this liberalism, I met a guy named Ojapa ‘Jo Deep’ Jonathan and He bitterly complained about the deceitful nature of Christianity and the MOST POPULAR LIE i.e. the existence of a God.

He withdrew from Christian friends and community to cling to His more liberal circle. The only problem with this young man was that though he indeed had overwhelming questions about The God and this Christianity that he spoke bitterly against, he also had overwhelming proofs (Historic Testimony, Archaeological Facts, Personal Experience, or what do you say, when your own hand has healed the sick by the Name of Jesus) about the AUTHENTICITY of both.

Now, the average attention span of online readers would not allow me to get into details but by now, you should know that I’m Jonathan Ojapa.

The interesting thing I found about me and others in the case I was in, is our failure to never forget what we truly know just because we encountered something that we don’t yet know. Yup! That’s a quote!

“Never forget what you truly know just because you encounter something new that you do not yet know”

Guys! It’s important to hold fast to the Faith that has been handed to us! Has your heart and mind confirmed any Truth about God and His Christ slain for you? Hold that!

It’s important to hold fast to the Faith that has been handed to us! Share on X

In God’s wisdom, He has made the proofs numerous! Don’t let someone with a few questions that you don’t yet know how to answer rock your WHOLESOME FOUNDATION. Let it rock you enough to study and grow but never off the faith that YOU HAVE PROOF of! Many overwhelming questions I used to have back then are being answered as I grow. Exactly how it’s supposed to be. We are not born All Grown Up, We are Born to Grow!

Many people don’t need new proofs from God or from Us to know that He exists or that His gospel is true, Infact, they just need to remember what they already know and Grow Up In The Areas They Are Yet To Know.

Grace and Peace
