The Next Wave

Despite the enormous financial success of The Passion of the Christ almost three years ago, last year proved that an anti-Christian movie like The Da Vinci Code could also pull in some serious dough (to the tune of over $200 million). Unsurprisingly, more people are jumping on the anti-Christian bandwagon, the latest being James Cameron who is preparing a documentary claiming Jesus wasn't resurrected.

There is little doubt that this is a direct attempt to undermine Christianity. The Apostle Paul makes this abundantly clear:

"And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ,
whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.
" - 1 Cor 15:14-19 (ESV)

Without the resurrection of Christ, there is no Christianity. So it is no surprise at all that an unbelieving world would continue to launch attacks at this foundational doctrine. As it is, the last 150 years have seen postmodern liberalism slowly chip away at denominations preaching a false gospel that denies the deity of Christ and the historical reality of His resurrection.

Over the centuries, the science of archaeology has, despite numerous attempts from members of that field to let their personal philosophical and religious views affect and infect their work, overwhelmingly supported the biblical record time and again. There is in fact not a single thing in the Scriptures which has been proven false by archaeology. I doubt many even within the Christian community realize this, and if they did it would have them a lot more prepared for the publicity and open hostility to Christians and Christianity that is sure to come in the wake of Cameron's film.

The spirtual proof that followed the first archaeological proof may be of interest to you.
