Activist Faith

wikileaksimages.jpgAccording to CNN, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange received the top vote for “Most Intriguing Person of the Year” for 2010. The rest of the Top 10 were as follows:

2. President Barack Obama
3. Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg
4. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs
5. Marisol Valles Garcia, a police chief in Mexico
6. Chilean miner Edison Pena
7. Kidnap victim Elizabeth Smart
8. Tony Hayward, the former CEO of BP
9. Kim Jong Un, presumed future leader of North Korea
10. Antoine Dodson

But what about you? Who would you choose as the most intriguing person of 2010? While I understand the dynamics behind those chosen, as a follower of Jesus I always choose Him as the top in every category. He is the most influential, most powerful, most intelligent, and yes, most intriguing person in 2010.

Why? God becoming human, born among animals to a lower class family, growing up as a laborer, teaching and healing among the poor, killed by religious and political leaders, and conquering death after three days to start the faith has changed the lives of countless people around the world for 2,000 years.

Most intriguing? Definitely. Make a commitment to investigate Jesus further in 2011. I would even suggest a copy of a book I coauthored called What’s the Big Deal about Jesus? (with John Ankerberg). Enjoy!
