Who Will Reason?
Jill Carattini

There are times when I wonder with the professor from The Lion, the
Witch, and the Wardrobe where logic has gone from the world's

Peter and Susan had come to him concerned about their younger sister
Lucy's outlandish tales of a land hidden deep within an old wardrobe. The
professor listened carefully as they reasoned it out before him, admitting
their bewilderment with Lucy's strange behavior and their confusion over
how to deal with her. Sighing, the professor lamented, "Why don't they
teach logic at these schools?" Either Lucy is telling lies, he explained,
or she is mad, or she is telling the truth. But since she was obviously
not mad, nor was she the one among the Pevensie children known for a
propensity for lies, her vivid descriptions were not so easily
dismissible. In fact, it was most likely Lucy was telling the
truth. "Nothing is more probable," said the professor, as he muttered to
himself, "I wonder what they do teach them at these schools."
Logic, it seems, has fallen out of fashion.

An article in the recent news describes a case in Italy against a priest
who is being accused of unlawfully misleading the public by presenting
Jesus in his parish newsletter as an historical figure. "Christ never
existed, but is an invention of the Church," says the man who has been
attempting to bring this case to trial since 2002. The accuser, himself a
professed atheist, claims the priest has violated an article under the
Italian penal code which, under the term "abuse of popular gullibility,"
sanctions people who mislead others. A judge who had earlier refused to
take up the case was overruled last month by the Court of Appeal, which
held the accuser had a reasonable case for his allegation. Preliminary
hearings against the priest are set to take place this month.

Although he comes to a conclusion himself that many would find
unreasonable, the accuser in this case is right in saying it is a question
the world-many Christians included-takes for granted. Was Jesus of
Nazareth a real person? Did the one many call the Christ ever really
exist? As absurd as I find the accusations in this case, I am thrilled
that the question is being asked: Are there historical proofs behind the
remarkable presence of this first century Jewish rabbi?

"[O]n the question of the existence," writes R. Scott Appleby, a professor
of church history at Notre Dame, "there is more evidence of the existence
of Jesus of Nazareth than there would be for many other historical people
who actually existed. Not only did Jesus actually exist, but he actually
had some kind of prominence to be mentioned in two or three chronicles."

In addition to the massive archives provided by each of the four Gospel
writers, the life of Jesus of Nazareth and the extent to which he created
a stir far beyond the land of his birth are chronicled by Christian and
non-Christian writers alike. Jewish historian Flavius Josephus is
considered by scholars to be the most important non-Christian source on
Christ's existence. Also archived in history are the writings of Pliny
the Younger, who in the early second century described a policy of
executing Christians who refused to curse Christ, as well as Tacitus,
another historian of the same period who wrote that Jesus was executed
under the authority of Pontius Pilate.

The historical evidence of the existence of Jesus cannot be erased from
any reasonable history book. There is a solid basis upon which one can
intelligently believe in Jesus as a person who actually existed. He
cannot rationally be exposed as a myth. What this means for those who
will reason is that a real person from Nazareth left a sizable mark on
history and started a chain of events moving far beyond his 33 years. The
next question was posed by Jesus himself: "But who do you say that I am?"

Verse of the Day

* * * Four important things to KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

D I S C L A I M E R If someone should ask if it's legal to download songs
found on various non-commercial sites, such as this one.

Well, I'm neither a lawyer nor a technician,
and I've begun to wonder if it was legal for
us to tape music off the radio back when
tape recorders first came into being.

And were we committing a crime when we recorded
a movie shown on TV with our VCRs? And was it
really legal to buy a dual-deck recorder for the
express purpose of duplicating cassettes?

My answer to all of the above is, "I don't know."

Nonetheless, here is a formal statement in
some kind of legalize that appears to apply
to this kind of file availability:
