Chuck Colson went to prison for his involvement in Watergate, the Washington DC scandal that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. There he famously became a born again Christian.
Colson said, “I know the resurrection is a fact, and Watergate proved it to me. How? Watergate embroiled twelve of the most powerful men in the world and they couldn’t keep a lie for three weeks. You’re telling me that twelve apostles could keep a lie for forty years? Absolutely impossible.”
Christianity is an intelligent faith based upon reasonable evidence, but God still requires faith (Hebrews 11:6). Not a blind leap into the dark unknown, but a leap into the light of God’s truth. Biblical faith always takes us beyond what the mind alone can reason.
