Do you believe Julius Caesar existed? There's far less physical evidence for his existence than for Christ's. There's plenty of written documentation for Christ's existence, along with a lot of historical evidence that many, many early Christians died defending the faith. They certainly believed He existed. Many say they saw and heard Him. Others believed because their ancestors heard the truth and passed it down.
In 1000 years, how much evidence will there be that Abraham Lincoln existed? Likely, little to none...but WE know he did exist.


There is no historical evidence for Christ outside of the bible, of which, the earliest is dated to 55-65 CE. Well after his supposed death. Even most biblical scholars have given up trying to date the gospels prior to those dates so give up on them being writings of eye witnesses. No contemporary ever wrote a word about Christ, not a single word. Where is all this documentation you speak of? If he were a historic instead of a religious figure, it would have been concluded long ago that he did not ever exist.

Caesar on the other hand has mountains of support for his existence. Documents that he wrote, contemporary writings about him, contemporary art made in his likeness, it goes on and on. Jesus.... not so much.

People dieing for their faith proves nothing. Look at the 9/11 hijackers or any suicide bomber, by your logic that proves Islam.

YFNA,
You choose to ignore what doesn't support your disbelief. I don't seek proof as I believe by faith, as commanded, but I still think there's plenty of evidence for His existence.

The KJV itself, if you knew anything about it, is proof enough. It's an amazing book that couldn't have possibly been put together and written by men. Penned, yes; authored, no. Sixty-six books written over a period of several thousand years, by different godly men, which perfectly confirm and coroborate each other. God promised he would preserve and provide His word, and He did. I believe true WISDOM comes from His preserved and inerrant word.
Psa 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Psa 12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

Have you ever looked into the Dead Sea Scrolls? Some of those manuscripts date back to the first century AD. http://www.grantjeffrey.com/article/article1....
Do you really believe those ancient writings refer to a myth?
Still, I don't require these proofs because I know where Jesus resides...in my heart. His Word is my proof. Jesus IS the word. Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

As I said before, you either get it or you don't. I don't understand why it bothers unbelievers so badly that believers get it. What do you care if it's untrue in your mind anyway? I know why we care that you don't believe though. We don't want you to go to Hell, eternally.

I'm sorry that you can't or don't want to see. You can't change my mind or heart because I KNOW what I believe. Maybe you just like sin that much and refuse to recognize yourself as a sinner, which makes you enslaved to sin. You have faith in nothing that can save your soul, which is your choice and your right. Maybe you believe you don't have a soul. I don't know. I know that I'm sad for you. If you ever do want to find the saving truth, faith cometh by hearing and hearing BY THE WORD OF GOD.

First, they don't even remotely "perfectly confirm and corroborate" each other. In which order did creation happen? Genesis gives two accounts, what were Jesus last words? Again depending on the book it's different. That's just off the top of my head.

What is contained in the bible that could have not been written by men? What so impresses you? The men who wrote books of the new testament had the old on hand as reference, why not write Jesus in as fulfilling prophecies? Regardless, not a word was written about Jesus by a contemporary author.

I sure do believe they refer to a myth. There are older manuscripts from other religions, does their age make them true to you as well?

As long as you keep your religion in your homes and churches I don't care what you believe. It's when christians start trying to get their beliefs turned into law that we have problems. It's like this, if your religion says you can't watch "The A-team" then you cant watch "The A-team", you don't try to make others quit watching it. As for why we are discussing this now, well, this is a discussion board after all. This sort of thing is pretty much what it's for. If you guys can't handle honest discussion about others beliefs, perhaps you are not as sure in yours as you believe.

First, sin is a silly concept, second, you don't know me so have no idea how I live my life. I don't believe in your little desert god because there is no evidence out there that is sufficient enough to warrant belief in any god.

NO, I do not believe in a soul. Don't be sad, I'm happy and have a really nice life that I for the most part enjoy greatly. You seem like a nice guy, don't take any of this personally, it's just a discussion.

I grew up a christian and counted myself among it's ranks until my 20's, I've heard the word plenty.

YFNA would have you believe that there is no law of cause and effect. That something comes from nothing. That there was a virgin birth from chance.
Such are the ramblings of someone who doesn't believe in truth. Who promotes fallacies as logic because rejected are the foundation of the laws of logic. Who attacks straw men.
It is impossible to have a conversation with anyone wherein you reject every premise, wherein they do not even believe in the laws of logic.

I don't think I've said where I believe anything came from, have I? I think we don't know. Someday we may, or, we may never. I'm okay with that.

Actually, I don't believe there was a virgin birth, why would I?

I believe in what can be proven, not this "truth" you peddle. What fallacies have I presented, please, enlighten us?

You honestly seem to know little about logic, the enemy of religion.

Didn't Julius Caesar create Little Caesar's like Papa John created Papa Johns?

Paper doesn't last forever so we all have to rely on copies and copies of copies. The copies of the bible are proven to be over 99% accurate dating back to the earliest of transcripts, the only differences being minor, as in the spelling of names (ex...Jon/John).
Isa_40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
The prophets mainly wrote on papyrus, which is grass. It deteriorates with time but God's word has withstood time.
<quoted text>
I don't worship death. I worship Jesus Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords; He is the way, the truth and the LIFE--not death.
I won't live forever in this body regardless, and neither will you. However I will live forever in a new body, like His, and in His presence, one day soon. He will come back here to rule and reign and He says through His word, a written promise/covenant/contract, that believers will rule and reign with Him. You should read about it. He's my King I want to serve Him. I already checked out the end of the book. He wins.
<quoted text>
Water baptism is a work and we are not saved by anything WE do. It's what He did that saves us.
Of course, believers should be baptised in obedience because He commanded it. It's symbolic, to show that we follow Him, but being physically dunked in water has no 'saving' ability in itself. Without the Holy Spirit already dwelling within a believer, baptism will just get you wet.
The thief on the cross wasn't baptised, yet Jesus told him that he would be with Him in paradise.
Only belief in, repentance and acceptance of Him as the only way to Heaven, and escape from Hell, saves anyone. If you believe He is the truth and you know you're a sinner in need of His forgiveness and salvation, ask Him to forgive you and to be your God/Savior. Of course, you will then follow Him and be obedient to Him.
In Jesus' dying breath, He said "It is finished." We sinful human beings can't do anything additionally that finishes what He did. He completed the job, alone. Salvation is a gift and we don't earn gifts by anything we do. I'm not ever going to stand before Him and say, "I did this and I did that, so I deserve to be in Your eternal presence!" He already knows what we do and His word says all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags, especially if we think anything we do is "good enough" to earn salvation.
Jesus said: Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? AND IN THY NAME DONE ANY WONDERFUL WORKS?
Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
He paid the price FOR ME in full; I didn't and I can't. Nothing I could do is worthy to be compared to what the Son of God did, including water baptism. I was baptized in obedience to my God.

By doing everything in life in "preperation" for some stupid shit you think will happen while the worms are eating your brain, YOU WORSHIP DEATH!

YFNA's premises all beg the question. You jump to conclusions about Christianity without laying out an argument. You attack the straw men of stating that God is powerless because you see suffering in the world or that Christian's give cop out answers to your conclusions that beg the question.
Evolution can be proven? I missed where science declared the theory of evolution a law. Molecules to man evolution cannot be proven. The scientific method cannot be applied to it. To believe in evolution, you must believe in a virgin birth. That is your religion. Or you have no opinion or belief in origins and you disregard both evolution and any intelligent design? Sounds like you need to do more research. But you do disregard the law of cause and effect if you do not believe in a Creator. You do believe something came from nothing. Otherwise you are open to the concept of a Creator.

No where do I claim god is powerless, I claim there is not a shred of evidence for the existence of a god, therefore I do not believe.

You need to brush up on just what a scientific theory actually is. Evolution is indeed supported by evidence from many fields of study.

No you don't, saying that is silly. Explain yourself.

I have no religion. I easily say that I don't know where everything came from. That's being intellectually honest as compared to saying "goddidit!" and having nothing to back that up.
Where are the theories of creation science?

If you believe that everything had to be created, what created your creator, then that creator, then that creator, ad infinitum? Are you familiar with the "It's turtles all the way down" phrase? Infinite regress? I'm open to a lot of concepts, just not without some evidence to make them considerable. Perhaps it is you that need to do some research.

If atheists can not be moral, why do they make up a smaller prison population by far, than they do in the general population of the country? Morals existed before the christian god was made up. With or without gods there will always be good and evil men.

There are many examples but I don't have to go far. "Evolution is indeed supported by evidence from many fields of study." Begs the question. I could easily say "Christianity is indeed supported by evidence from many fields of study." Also you brush off the scientific method's application to molecules to man evolution and give no support for it. If the scientific method could prove evolution it would cease to be a theory and become law. But evolution lacks proof. You have to believe, hence your religion. You are going to have to explain to me how life is created from non-life in order for me to be persuaded you do not believe in a virgin birth.

God is immaterial. He is Spirit. You are talking about laws that apply to the material world. God acts in the material world but is not bound by its laws since He created all material. God doesn't require creation.
