Vetus Via. This is Latin for: the old way. It is taken from the Jeremiah 6 passage in the Bible that is quoted on the cover page of this blog. Searching for the old path, or the old way, which means the way God has been working on throughout history, which culminated with Jesus dying as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of mankind, then being raised to life providing hope for eternity. In this “progressive” day our society lives in, many may not want to look to the past for answers, but we must. The historical evidence to verify that Jesus indeed did what the Bible says is pretty overwhelming. We should not just push it aside and disregard it as just “another option.”
C.S. Lewis once said:
“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
This blog is intended to make people think, to create dialogue, knowing that my desire is to find us both in heaven one day.
