Hello friends!

I’m in the midst of transferring from wordpress.com to wordpress.org and while most of the content can be transferred, my subscribers don’t get to come with me :(

There’s a way to do it (and I’m still working on that part) but for now, if you’d like to still be an email subscriber, please head on over to my new site www.lottiebrooke.com.

The same goes for bloglovin so if you’re a follower on there, please go to my new bloglovin page!

Sorry for the inconvenience!

It really means a lot to me that you enjoy this blog that is near and dear to my heart enough to follow it.

Honestly, I’m thankful for all of you and I am encouraged to keep writing because of your faithfulness, kind words, and encouragement.

I know this can be annoying, but I would sure love to keep you around because I definitely don’t want to lose ya! :)

Thanks and have a lovely weekend!

Case for Christ (multi-part series)

I finished reading a book a few weeks ago called The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel. It was about a journalist (Strobel) who was an atheist his whole life until he underwent a series of investigations to discover if Jesus really existed and truly is who he says he is. He used the same skills and tactics that would be used during a criminal court hearing. In court, they investigate the evidence, check the reliability, cross-check witnesses, look for artifacts that prove or disprove a claim, look at the fingerprint proof, and use deductive reasoning. These are just some of the tactics they use to convict a criminal or set them free. Strobel used these tactics and interviewed highly reputable theological scholars who have spent years studying the historical Jesus. After conducted a factual, unbiased interview with all the scholars, he came up with a conclusion that unanimously pointed toward the case for Christ. (whoops, spoiler alert. But I’m sure you saw that coming).

This book wow’d me! It had an astounding amount of evidence and more reliable proof than I ever knew existed, even outside the Bible. It’s not that I doubted my faith, nor did I need proof to confirm it, but my faith was reaffirmed based on the evidence that Christ existed, that he fulfilled impossible prophecies, and that he is who he says he is.  I recommend this book to anyone. It’s genius.

So for the next couple of weeks I’m going to write a new blog post based on some the things I learned while reading the book as well as my own research. I hope you guys will read these posts with an open mind and open heart. Whether you have no belief in God, or you’ve known God for a long time, these findings are refutable and will make you think about Christ in a new way.

In the end, after I had thoroughly investigated the matter, I reached an unexpected conclusion: it would actually take more faith to maintain my atheism than to become a follower of Jesus. – Strobel

PS – I am not intending to copywrite any of Lee Strobel’s information. I only desire to relay what I have learned and will quote his book properly.
