Faith perspective: Belief, not science, can explain God’s power

Twenty centuries ago, a Jew named Yeshua (in Aramaic, a language related to Hebrew) was executed by Romans. His execution was by a very cruel form of torture.

In the 21st century, people still believe that Yeshua, known to us as Jesus, is the Son of God and our Savior who died for our sins and was raised from the dead. Are they wrong to have that belief?

Jesus spoke with an assurance that what he said and did would be remembered. They have been.

Christianity would have perished in the first century if his resurrection had not occurred, but it did happen. What began with Jesus and 12 disciples grew into the largest religion with more than 2 billion members.

Christianity has many groups with different doctrines, but all agree that Jesus Christ died for our sins and was raised from the dead.

We have much scientific knowledge but science can’t explain everything.

Charles Lindbergh, the famous aviator, was also a scientist and engineer. He said his years in science led him to search for things beyond its reach. Lindbergh said, “Science is a path not an end; a path that leads to and disappears in mystery.”

God’s awesome supernatural power and eternal existence are beyond the ability of scientists to understand or disprove.
