Is It True?

The most important thing to be asked about the Christian Faith is not,
  • "Is it helpful?"
  • "Will it make me happy?"
  • "Will it give me a better life?"
  • "Will I prosper financially?" or even
  • "Will it bring me peace"?
But,
  • "Is it true?
Because if it is not true, nothing else matters for very long anyway. No matter how happy, rich, successful or famous one is in life, it will, at one time or other, be over and, for most of us, after perhaps a period of mourning by those close to us, the world will carry on as if we were never here.
But if it is true, it has enormous, even infinite significance, because eternity is at stake.
As C.S. Lewis said,
Christianity, if it is not true, is of no importance. If true, it is of infinite importance. The one thing it cannot be is moderately important.
Take Care
