During Memorial Day Week, I often share the heroic story of my Uncle Dick who was shot down in a bombing raid during World War II. To me, he will always be “The Bravest Boehme” and his story is worth remembering.
My uncle fought for an entire culture–what history calls Western Civilization. That war still rages today.
Here’s an important update on the war for Western Civilization.
Over the past three weeks I’ve talked about who you can TRUST in the big decisions of life.
First, a cloud of billions of witnesses confirm your direction. Second, an infallible Book (The Bible) provides a reliable compass for living.
Third, and most importantly, there is only one person in time and eternity who, through his own sufferings, provided the “Way” to eternal friendship with the Almighty.
Why I trust in Jesus Christ.
I mentioned last week that the first leg of the three-legged “Who Can I Trust” stool is the great cloud of witnesses that confirm there is salvation in Jesus Christ alone.
This mirrors our daily experience.
Last year I went to Lowe’s to buy a lawnmower. I asked the sales person which one was their number one seller–and bought it because most people preferred it. Same with the cloud of witnesses. Truth is often found in numbers (confirming something to be true).
But there’s an even greater confirmation than people’s choices.
It’s found in the most incredible book ever written.
Here’s why I trust the Bible.
