Pat answers
It’s fashionable to say that nobody knows for sure what the truth is, and that we’re all seekers. People who claim that they have the truth are accused of having pat answers, of pushing a neatly packaged worldview that insists on blind faith and discourages thinking.

But that’s the most pat answer of all. It sounds very humble to say we’re all seekers trying to find our own truth; but if it’s all relative as many assert, we don’t have to make a decision. We can still say we’re seekers but can continue to live any way we want.

The resurrection tells us the search is over; that the Answer has arrived, and it’s time to decide. The work at hand is to honestly investigate Christianity to first to find out not if it’s comfortable but if it’s true.
