The resurrection of Jesus Christ and the conversation of Saul,
By universal agreement were considered to be
The foundation stones of the Christian religion,
In other words the basis of Christianity.
Two great men of literature in the last century,
Determined on a master plan to destroy Christianity,
Their names were Sir Gilbert West and Lord Lyttleton,
Who set out to prove that Christianity was a fantasy.
Sir Gilbert West agreed to research the resurrection,
Whilst Lord Lyttleton agreed to research the conversion of Saul,
When this was done they would meet to discuss their findings,
Which they believed would destroy the Christian faith once and for all.
Their work completed they met to give their report,
And those who listened were taken back by their points of view,
They both had to admit that the beliefs were based on facts,
So much so that they declared them to be true.
They who had commissioned the report were most surprised,
For they believed the myth of Christianity would be rejected,
That these two great men had come to such a conclusion,
Was something that they could not have expected.
These two men were recognised as “literary greats” in their day,
Their views were respected throughout the land,
They had set out to prove that Christianity is founded on a myth,
But things did not work out as they had planned.
After much research and consideration they reached the conclusion
Christianity is based upon the truth, which they felt bound to admit,
This was an unexpected finding for those who requested the research,
For they confirmed the truth of that contained in Holy Writ.
Now this is a truth in which we can all believe,
We will do well to listen to what the Bible has to say,
It is not something that we should easily dismiss,
For it’s truths are still relevant.today.
