Quote of the Day: "“Christianity -- an experience that demands an explanation”

The foundation of Christ 1 Corinthians 3:11; p...                    Image via Wikipedia
Someone once said, “Christianity should not be an explanation void of an experience but rather an experience that demands an explanation!” 
Paul was speaking of this same truth when he said, “And my speech and my preaching were not with the persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in THE POWER OF GOD” (1 Corinthians 2:4-5). -- Christ For All Nations (CfAN) email
A good point. Christianity is not dry belief; it is belief accompanied by the experience of God. Where does Christianity reside -- in our minds? Yes. In our hearts too? Yes. In our innermost being, our  spirit? Yes. Christianity is not mere intellectual assent or dry belief; it is deeply, deeply personal -- "(the person of) Christ [residing] in you, the hope of glory".

Christ said, "I am the truth". A person said this. Ultimate truth is not to be found in molecules in motion; it is found in a Person who resides outside of time and space. And seekers of truth love finding and getting to know him.
