First century Roman historian Tacitus was a not a Christian but recorded in his journals about a man called Christus who suffered extremely because of charges being bought against him.

Another first century historian named Josephus who also was a non-Christian wrote about James the brother of Jesus and John the Baptist in his journals.

Emperor Nero blamed the Christians for the great fire of Rome. The persecution of Christians has been well documented in history.

There was a real man named Jesus with lots of drama surrounding his earthly activities that is well documented in history. There is evidence!

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.

This prophecy was given early in the first century and this exact same story was written about around 1450 B.C. 95 AD. The prophecy came true…the story word for word is the same!

Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

This scripture describes what will happen to the Messiah when He comes to earth and again the same story was reported many years later after the death of Jesus by Christian and non-Christian historians.

There are at least 50 people in the bible that archaeologist have been able to confirm.

Science has tried over hundreds of years to prove or disprove the bible and creation…but to me the fact that there is a need for the scientific is proof shows just how complicated this worlds existence is and to me that speaks for itself. Everything about human life, the earth and the universe is a glorious mystery that no man has figured out even though he has tried really hard.

People want positive proof of a creator or a big explosion. After thousands of years of trying to come up with clear cut proof…there is none that can be easily seen or that one can say… see this is it right here. So each debater goes on digging in and standing their ground for their beliefs.

There is a book that after thousands of years has remained a best seller and no matter how many times it has been dissected, torn apart, and disputed… people still keep referring to it and believing in it despite all the criticism

Christianity is not easy to just believe the entire story right away. It takes time through examples of Jesus Christ revealing Himself through a persons own trials, preaching, and testimonies before a person actually gets it.  Jesus can also reveal Himself to people directly.

I believe that almost everyone is on some kind of quest to find the purpose for their lives. There are some that are determined to just do whatever with their lives and could care less where their soul will end up for eternity.

The big thing these days is for people to say everyone is going to heaven. Even some Christians believe this.

BUT JESUS SAID:

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. Anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again. No one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You must be born again!!!!! I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am he, you will indeed die in your sins.” I and the Father are one. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

JOHN 3:16 FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONE AND ONLY SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE!!!!!!!

What other god proclaims to have come back from the dead and is able to forgive you of your sins?

There is NO other god who HAS come back from the dead!!

No other god has demonstrated supernatural powers like Jesus!

No other god has as much historical evidence and literature written about them!

No other god makes people really mad at the mention of their name!

No other god has thousands and thousands of songs written about them! (When Handel composed the Messiah…He said “I have seen God”!)

No other god claims to be 3 persons in one!

No other god claims to put His spirit inside of a human to help, guide and comfort him.

WHAT KIND OF GOD IS THIS? He is the “I AM” and He is my God.
