But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.
– Galatians 1:11-12
Revelation is one of the most difficult aspects of the Christian faith, for many non-believing westerners in our day to accept. As a result there are those in the church who either downplay its importance, or make light of it, by rarely brining it up. But the fact is, revelation is an essentially important issue for Christians.
We believe that God has revealed Himself. He has done so, first, through creation and our conscience (general revelation), then through prophets (special revelation), and most importantly through His son, and the Gospel. This is central to Christianity, and that being the case, Christians need to own it, even if it is mocked.
Never forget, “The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18).
