Evidence of Jesus' resurrection from the dead was witnessed yesterday. Granted it happened in a church. Yet from a simple historical cause - effect relationship there is only one way to explain what was witnessed.
The effect - A new mother and wife of one of the members decided she wanted to become a Christian, to confess in front of the bunch (about 50 folk) that Jesus was her Lord and Savior.
Having done that, the walls were slid left and right and the preacher, her husband and she walked into a pool of water about waste deep.
She then was baptized, laid prone under the water (immersed) and caused to stand up again.
The picture is clear. She stood (alive as a sinner), laid prone (was buried in the water) and stood up again (born again, raised from the dead).
The cause - The event is testimony to a historical happening some 2000 years ago - the physical resurrection of Jesus. What other historical explanation do we have for the 2000 year old presence of baptism by immersion in the church?
Indeed, evidence of Jesus's resurrection was witnessed today.
