Last night people gathered here under the tent to watch a movie titled The Greatest Showman. It was loosely based on the life of Phineas Taylor Barnum, and it took a few artistic liberties in telling a full and truthful story of his life. But one thing it did accurately portray was the fierce opposition he received from the people who viewed him as a nothing more than a con artist. When it comes to the central claim of the Christian faith, that “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life,” many people today view such a claim as nothing more than a P.T. Barnum con job.
