Facts versus feelings.
Back when fact-checking was very difficult, somebody could make a CLAIM that Risen Jesus appeared to a crowd of over five hundred people.
No explanation of HOW these people were able to determine that whatever they saw WAS actually Risen Jesus, and not just somebody else.
But now that millions of people have personal video recorders built into their portable phones, Risen Jesus does not appear to crowds.
As for myself, I was not "driven away".
It was more a matter of "Does this bit of Christianity MAKE SENSE?"
Eventually, it got down to the bit where GOD was not SMART enough to figure out a way to forgive people, without requiring an innocent person to be tortured to death.
We mere humans are capable of forgiving, without requiring human sacrifice.
Why would a GOD not have the same ability?
