Who Were Christianity’s First to Third Centuries Non-Christian Witnesses for the Historicity of Jesus Christ?

As Christian apologetic evangelists who must reason, explain, prove, persuade, and defend, Christians show that Jesus Christ did live by using sources other than the Bible and the writing of the early Church Fathers. For those who question Christian the authority of the New Testament documents, examine carefully what the secular historians and other writers have written that, in fact, corroborates the testimony of the Bible.

Beware As Most Skeptics are Seeking to Feed their Doubt Not Their Faith

Christians why should we not give the Word of God to all skeptics equally? Why should we not always correct the skeptical ridiculer? In what ways has Satan blinded the minds of the skeptics? Why should we get answers now? If insidious doubts ever begin to creep into our minds, spiritual shipwreck is on the horizon. “The Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith.” (1 Tim. 4:1) Why? How? Why should it trouble us?

JAMES 5:14-16 and COVID 19: Is Faith Healing After First Century Christianity Biblical?​

When we study the Bible, we will find several significant inconsistencies between the cures mentioned in the Bible and those reported by faith healers today. Faith healers claim to perform miraculous healings. However, Jesus himself seriously warned against persons who would claim to have “perform many miracles” in his name. He would say to them: “I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.” (Matthew 7:22-23) 

APOSTASY: Abandoning, Deserting, Working Against and Rebelling Against God

An apostate’s defection from the faith may be intellectual, as in the case of Ernst Haeckel, who, because of his materialistic philosophy, publicly and formally renounced Christianity and the church. Then, there is Dr. Bart D. Ehrman who has rejected Christ because of his doubt in the trustworthiness of the Bible and the problem of evil, and so he has actively worked in opposition to Christ for 20+ years. It may also be moral and spiritual, as with Judas, who for filthy silver pieces basely betrayed his Lord.
