I honor the great apologist Ravi Zacharias upon his untimely passing about 2 weeks ago. He was an amazing man, going into atheistic Oxford, Harvard, etc., and taking questions about Christianity and answering them from FAITH and from FACTS. Astonishing man. Here are just three of his many provocative quotes:
“I think the reason we sometimes have the false sense that God is so far away is because that is where we have put him. We have kept him at a distance, and then when we are in need and call on him in prayer, we wonder where he is. He is exactly where we left him.”
“We talk so much about one’s rights…so little about what is actually right.”
“A man rejects God neither because of intellectual demands nor because of the scarcity of evidence. A man rejects God because of a moral resistance that refuses to admit his need for God.”
Rest in peace, Ravi Zacharias. You were a favorite of mine and you’ll never be forgotten by millions of people around the world. May those you trained become as prolific, as God-centered, ready to work hard, ready with smart and convincing answers to the tough questions of seekers and challenging atheists, and as kind and encouraging as you were.
Z (Side note; when I Googled to find an image of Mr. Zacharias, there were many pictures but the first was a picture of him with “CAUGHT LYING” written over his picture. The first one. THAT is how threatening, how excellent, how convincing he could be; it scared people….so they had to besmirch…)
