When Paul spoke at his own trial before Festus and King Agrippa around AD60 (Acts 26:23-25) he explained very simply the message of Jesus Christ – that he suffered, rose from the dead, and enlightens all humanity today. Festus was gob-smacked and shouted “You’re out of your mind!
But Paul respectfully disagreed –‘ “I am not insane, most excellent Festus,” Paul replied. What I am saying is true and reasonable.”’
When this same message of Jesus was shared in an Asian village recently a Buddhist spirit medium heard it and agreed that it was “true and reasonable”. He believed it and enrolled in a radio Bible correspondence course FEBC offers. These are his words:
“So now as I am studying the Bible Correspondence Course, it is as if someone is leading me out of darkness into the Light – and away from the strength of the spirits and Satan. Now I am in Jesus Christ and my sickness is gradually disappearing. May God bless you!”
Is following Jesus insane, or reasonable? Ask the healthy Buddhist.
