"The gospel is an absolutely unbelievable message, a ludicrous word to the wise of the world. As Christians we sometimes fail to realize how utterly astounding it is when anyone believes our message.
In a sense, the gospel is so far fetched that its spread throughout the Roman Empire is proof of its supernatural nature. What could ever bring a Gentile, completely unaware of Old Testament Scriptures and rooted in either Greek philosophy or pagan superstition to believe a message, such a message about a man named Jesus? He was born under questionable circumstances to a poor family in one of the most despised regions of the Roman Empire and yet the gospel claimed that he was the eternal Son of God who was conceived of the Holy Spirit in the womb of a virgin.
He was a carpenter by trade, an itinerant religious teacher with no official training and yet the gospel claims that he surpassed the combined wisdom of the Greek philosopher and the Roman sages of antiquity. He was poor and had no place to lay his head and yet the gospel claims that he fed thousands by a word, healed every manner of illness among men and even raised the dead.
He was crucified outside of Jerusalem as a blasphemer and an enemy of the state and yet the gospel claims that his death as the pivotal event in all of human history and the only means of salvation from sin and reconciliation to God. He was placed in a borrowed tomb, yet the gospel claims that on the third day he arose from the dead and presented himself to many of his followers and 40 days later ascended up into heaven and sat down
at the right hand of majesty on high.
Thus, the gospel claims that a poor Jewish carpenter who was rejected as a lunatic and a blasphemer by his own people and crucified by the state is now the Savior of the world the Lord of lords and the King of kings and at his name every knee will bow including Caesar’s."

"Natural man is a fallen creature, he is morally corrupt, and he is Hell-bent on autonomy or self-government. He hates God because God is righteous, and he hates God’s laws because they censor him and restrict his evil. He hates the truth because it exposes him for what he is and troubles what is left of his conscience. Therefore fallen man seeks to push the truth—especially the truth about God—as far from him as he can possibly remove it. He will go to any extent to suppress the truth, even to the point of pretending that there is no such thing as truth, or that if it does exist, it cannot be known or have any bearing on our lives."

"why worry about a speck in my friend’s eye when I have a log on my own? How can I think of saying, ‘let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when I can’t see past the log in my own eye?"
