There’s a meme called “When You See It”. You’re given a photo that looks pretty mundane, but once you’ve spotted a particular detail, the picture shifts from mundane to hilarious (or maybe horrifying). You can never go back to seeing the picture the way you first did. In the same way, my feeling is that once you’ve seen the gaping flaws in the Gospel of Matthew’s resurrection account, you’ll never go back to thinking it’s anything but garbage.
“God has a plan for your life!” Okay. Say God does have a plan for your life. Does that matter when you don’t know what the plan is? God had a plan for Robert Godwin’s life. And the last line of that plan read, “Apr. 16, 2017 – Gets shot in the face at random; dies.”
