For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you
the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his
majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came
such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am
well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with
him in the holy mount.
2 Peter 1:16-18 (KJV)
When Joseph Smith received the Book of Mormon from the angel Moroni, there was
no human witness. When an angel appeared to Mohammed, there were no other
witnesses. When Buddha received his enlightenment, there were no witnesses.
Almost all the religions of the world have the same pattern. An isolated encounter.
But not so with Christianity. Hallelujah. Our faith is rock solid and unshakeable. Only
the Christian Faith has historical chronology and human witnesses, who were willing
to die as witnesses to what they saw and heard.
