Why?

I was thinking about the people who claim to have seen Elvis, Michael Jackson, Adolf Hitler and Tu Pac. There are people who so desperately want their human idol to be alive that they will lie about it. Maybe they are delusional and paired with their strong will to see their idol alive they see what they want to see. It was perplexing to me.

I had a difficult time understanding why someone would want so desperately to see someone that they would be willing to lie about it. Dishonesty is something that I really cannot fathom. It was difficult for me to understand and then it struck me! It occurred to me what was going on. Suddenly it became clear to me exactly why they would lie about it. I began to realize why they were so desperate to discredit Christianity, Jesus Christ and salvation.

If a human being (famous or not), could fake their death and suddenly be found alive then that would give ammunition to the nay-sayers. If Elvis Presley could "fake" his death then the skeptics could claim that Jesus "faked" His death as well. They wouldn't have any proof, no evidence and no facts. They would have only enough doubt to make outrageous accusations about Christ. The leaders of the day attempted to make ridiculous claims that somehow the body of Jesus was "stolen" as well. Why, if Jesus was actually resurrected, it would be as miraculous as the scriptures claim. If Jesus Christ was raised from the dead than the claims that God provided a way for mankind to be saved would be upheld, supported and salvation would be assured. If Jesus Christ was crucified and then raised from the dead, God's law would stay intact. If Jesus Christ was crucified and then raised from the dead, then the scriptures are true. If Jesus Christ was crucified and then raised from the dead, thenheaven is real and eternal life is the goal. 

The nay-sayers want to claim that they can sneak into heaven. The nay-sayers want to claim that this is it. The nay-sayers want to claim that they KNOW that there is no heaven nor hell. The nay-sayers want to claim that there is no God because then there is no accountability.

Drug use, rape, murder, fraud, theft and lies are all just ways to live IF there is no accountability.  Criminality is just another option IF there is no accountability. The nay-sayers would love to make life be all about doing whatever one wishes to. Just as Sodom and Gomorrha lived for the day right up until they were destroyed, so too would the nay-sayers like people to live like there was no tomorrow. Misery loves company.

    I don’t think that the reason people say they have seen a famous person (who is supposed to be dead) alive is so that they can somehow discredit Christianity. I doubt that has anything to do with it. Some people are very gullible. For instance, not long ago I saw a Michael Jackson look-a-like on the streets of New Orleans. The resemblance was amazing, but I recognized him for what he most likely was, which was a look-a-like and probably a performer somewhere. Now, some people may have seen him and claimed to have actually seen Michael Jackson. But I doubt by doing that, that their intention would be to discredit Christianity. Why do you think that? I think that’s a reach.

      That’s the whole point to a deception. People believe it’s a “reach” as propaganda is disseminated and accepted. It may not be an individual intention necessarily but collectively it is. Children are being brought up with the Easter Bunny instead of the truth. Children are being fed nonsense about Santa Clause instead of the truth. The end result is that more people turn to secular humanism, atheism and agnosticism. The end result is that more people serve the devil than God. The end result is that more people commit suicide, use drugs and use alcohol to escape reality and that truth. People are looking for excuses and escapes. The book of Romans says that “man is without excuse”…

        If Christianity helps you in your life then that’s great, but what is the “truth” for one person may not be the “truth” for another. The reach I was talking about is to claim that someone is somehow discrediting Christianity by believing they see a famous person who is supposed to be dead. You said by saying someone faked their death, they are trying to say that Jesus faked his death. That’s the part I don’t think is correct. Some people simply enjoy the idea that someone they admire could still be alive. For example, I think it’d be cool if Jim Morrison hadn’t really died when they said he did, and was still around. Does that mean I think Jesus faked his death and didn’t really rise from the dead? No – in fact the thought never crossed my mind.

          The human life of a follower of Christ is not an easy one so no, it doesn’t “help me in life”. I’m not looking for something nor someone to help me in life. What I have found is a Savior who can guarantee me eternal life after death.

    No need to fake anything about Jesus…he’s alive.

      God haters will fake lots of things and then lie about it. Yes, Jesus is alive but atheists and agnostics will claim differently.
