I find myself wondering about the great majority of preachers and teachers in Christian circles who seem so intent upon making the deity of Christ rest upon historical evidence. I think they must not discern that the Holy Spirit has taken that matter completely out of the realm of evidence and has put it as a burning point in the human conscience. It is no longer an intellectual problem—it is a moral problem!
Matthew 16:17 (NIV) Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven."
