Neither can they prove
24:13 Neither can they prove. Paul’s factual answer, and the contrasting emotional diatribes of his opponents, seems typical of modern controversies between creationists and evolutionists, as well as between Christians and anti-Christians in general. The facts of the case completely supported Paul, and Felix would have released him, except Felix hoped to receive a bribe from Paul (Acts 24:26) and he desired to appease the Jewish leaders (Acts 24:27). Similarly today, the facts always support the Biblical creationist Christian worldview, but financial and political considerations generally favor its opponents. Paul was not guilty of any of their charges or of anything else except believing and teaching the truth of God’s Word.
