Conversation Piece

Alpha & Omega Ministires, the apologetics ministry of James White, is promoting a very cute T-shirt. It contains pictures of all of the second century papyri that witness the New Testament. It would surely be a conversation starter and a witness tool.

Pick one up over at Reflections, Carla Rolfe’s shop on CafePress.

Though fragmentary, the second century papyri show that very little evolution of NT Scripture has occurred. The witness of the second century MSS, dated only 50 to 100 years after the originals, is that the text we have today is the text that was written. Get it? The NT is in tact! It did not evolve or change over the years to create a new Jesus that no one from the first century a.d. believed in! The earliest Christians believed that Jesus was the Son of God, that he shared the same ontology as God and therefore was God! This belief did not evolve over time and become solidified at Nicea, as the atheists will have you believe.

That Jesus was God was something that the earliest Christians bore witness to. So sleep soundly tonight, Christians, your faith is secure in these second century MSS.

  1. I have some t-shirts that provide scripture quotes in my newly created zazzle store. But I am particularly proud of my “Dawkins + Aliens = Science” and my
    “Sludge + lightning = life
    Garbage + regurgitation = IQ”
    bumper stickers and shirts.

  2. Glad you like the shirt.
