“when they heard of the resurrection of the dead,
some began to sneer” – Acts 17:32
Still sneering? Or now accepting?
When that lightning quick final moment “ends you” 1 and you find yourself of a sudden kneeling, alone before God Eternal in His Majestic Court…

Acts 17:10-34 verses 30-32:

32 Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some began to sneer, but others said, “We shall hear you again concerning this.”
Free minds everywhere are rife with thought – ideas, imaginings. That is great! But what reality do “thoughts” have? We are here today, gone tomorrow, and… are we to put weight upon our vain imaginings?
God Himself has furnished proof of the reality He Himself created.
“There are few historical assertions that come down to us through history with so many evidential proofs of their veracity – as do the biblical records of the real life, real death and actual real resurrection from death – of Jesus of Nazareth. I’d call that proof positive of God’s love. He provided it, plenty of proofs.”

And yours? Ha! Not really. Not for long. No one makes their own reality stick – not you, not me, not Napoleon, not Putin, not Biden, not man-made religions, not philosophers. 5
Is a fleeting vapor,
the seeking and pursuit of death.
– Proverbs 21:6
What about you? “Your mind can either be hardened, or it can be receptive.” Hardened? Or receptive? Which is it going to be?
declaring to men
that all people everywhere

BibleGateway Footnote: Acts 17:18 These were among the leading philosophies of the day. Neither believed in a personal God; indeed, the Epicureans were confirmed atheists. Their goal was to get as much out of life as possible. The Stoics had a strong, fatalistic sense of duty, seeking to improve the inner man.
