Finding God in Eggplant

Okay, if you don’t think we were created to be in community with God…if you don’t think we were wired with a need for God in our lives then read this. That’s right, we’re so “hungry” for God, someone found a reminder of him in an eggplant. I remember thinking, when this story first broke, that in spite of removing God and neglecting God in so many areas of our lives, we can’t help but search for him. We were made to be spiritually-sensitive beings in an intimate elationship with our creator. And if we’re not, we’ll come up with all kinds of crazy attempts to fulfill that need. “He has planted eternity in the human heart…” (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT).

The Lost Tomb of Jesus

Oh, no! My faith is shaken again! What if they really have discovered the remains of Jesus and all of Christianity is discredited? That’s the lastest claim by James Cameron with “The Lost Tomb of Jesus” to air soon on the Discovery Channel. After all, they have DNA proof (Maybe Judge Seidlin can handle this after Anna Nicole Smith).

I’m thinking – come on! Get off of the “anti-traditional-Christian-faith sensationalism. The only real thing unearthed here is someone’s plan of taking in a load of money with this production. Unfortunately, the casualties will be some very gullible people who will get taken in and confused by this latest “amazing discovery.”

Do Christians need to worry? Isn’t it interesting that in thousands of years of archaeology, there has not been one piece of evidence that disproves or discredits the Christian faith. On the contrary, there have been countless discoveries that have confirmed biblical record. Once again, with this “Lost Tomb…” stuff, the evidence will speak for itself. And Christianity will stand up to the test…and to the questions. The way I see it, this is just another opportuntity to start conversations about Jesus.

Here’s some interesting blog coverage.
