Christians just take this on faith.
For Christians, no proof is needed.

You are most welcome to believe as you wish. That is your right.
I will not belittle your right.

James 3:14-15

14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. 15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.

I have no jealousy in my heart for any one. How about you?

I take exception to being damned to hell by some "manby pamby Christian" because I don't agree with the doctrine. I have my own beliefs as well. What gives you the right to damn me or anyone to hell if I don't think the way you Christians think?

When I was young I went to Sunday School then to the church service. In Sunday school we were taught about Jesus and his unending compassion and love for us. When church time came around, however, it was all about "onward Christians, marching off to war". I knew right then, even as a kid, there was something wrong. I learned about the price there is to pay for standing up for peace when the church board fired the Pastor for participating in an anti-war protest.(Vietnam war) I noticed.

BTW.. could you please instruct the other believers to stop knocking on my door at 8:00 Sunday Morning? Thanks

Here's something not yet discussed. Politicians. When they are sworn in-take an oath with a hand on the bible. What do they do? Break the oath. How much do politicians have faith when swearing on the bible? I don't hear anyone speak of this.

Easter bunny, easter eggs, Santa, elves, etc etc are attempts from Satan to pervert the real meaning.

Jesus Christ left the glory of Heaven, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, went to the cross for our sins, died, rose from the dead, showed Himself to the apostles and over 500 eye-witnesses, ascended to Heaven, is currently at the right hand of the Father.

Hold on, shortcake.
I have never damned anyone to hell, and I never will.
I happen to be one of those Christians who believes that non-Christians have the same chance of salvation as I do.

I have enough trouble with Jehovah Witnesses myself, dear.
lol
I am a Catholic and I live in the south, which is mostly Protestant.

I fully support your right to believe as you wish.
Please also recognize my same right.
I post a lot of stuff about the Catholic faith because there are few Catholics who post here.
Yet, the smartest posters and those I can learn something from are not Christians; they are atheists or agnostics.
Or, of a different faith.

500 witnesses and only a few people wrote about it..........LOL. After that, people were tortured and murdered into believing.

Use of Bibles

Theodore Roosevelt did not use a Bible when taking the oath in 1901. Barack Obama, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Harry S. Truman, and Richard Nixon (also a Quaker) swore the oath on two Bibles. John Quincy Adams swore on a book of law, with the intention that he was swearing on the constitution.[8] Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in on a Roman Catholic missal on Air Force One. Washington kissed the Bible afterwards,[9] and subsequent presidents followed suit, up to and including Harry Truman,[10] but Dwight D. Eisenhower broke that tradition by saying his own prayer instead of kissing the Bible.[11]-Wikipedia

So help me God"

The historical debate over who first used "So help me God," is marred by ignoring the two forms of giving the oath. The first, now in disuse, is when the administrator articulates the constitutional oath in the form of a question, as in, "Do you George Washington solemnly swear...", requesting an affirmation. At that point a response of "I do" or "I swear" completes the oath. Without verbatim transcripts, the scant existing evidence shows this was the common procedure at least until the early 20th century. In 1865 the Sacramento Daily Union covered the second inauguration of Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln finished his oath with "So help me God," and he kissed the bible.[33] In 1881, the New York Times article covering the swearing in of Chester A. Arthur, reported that he responded to the question of accepting the oath with the words, "I will, so help me God".[6] In 1929, Time magazine reported that the Chief Justice began the oath uttering, "You, Herbert Hoover, do you solemnly swear..."[7] Hoover replied with a simple "I do".

A Federal law suit filed in the District of Columbia by Michael Newdow on December 30, 2008 contended the second, current form of administration, where both the Chief Justice and the President articulate the oath, appending "So help me God", to be a breach of the Constitutional instructions. The suit distinguishes between the words spoken by the administrator, which must conform to the exact 35 words of the Constitution, and the President, who has a right to add a personal prayer, such as "So help me God."[34]

Chief Justice Roberts' reply was that his "prompting" for these four extra-constitutional words were to be recited "after" the oath of office, and not as a part of the oath as claimed in the suit. After rendering the oath to President Barack Obama, Roberts prompted with a question "So help you God?", to which the President responded, "So help me God."[35]

The first Congress explicitly prescribed the phrase "So help me God" in oaths under the Judiciary Act of 1789 for all U.S. judges and officers other than the President. It was prescribed even earlier under the various first state constitutions[36] as well as by the Second Continental Congress in 1776.[37][38] Although the phrase is mandatory in these oaths, the said Act also allows for the option that the phrase be omitted by the officer, in which case it would be called an affirmation instead of an oath: "Which words, so help me God, shall be omitted in all cases where an affirmation is admitted instead of an oath."[39] In contrast, the oath of the President is the only oath specified in the Constitution. It does not include the closing phrase "So help me God", and it also allows for the optional form of an affirmation which is not considered an oath. In practice, however, most Presidents, at least during the last century, have opted to take the oath (rather than an affirmation), to use a Bible to do so, and also to close the oath with the customary phrase.

The earliest known source indicating Washington added "So help me God" to his acceptance, not to the oath, is attributed to Washington Irving, aged six at the time of the inauguration, and first appears 65 years after the event.[40]- Wikipedia

IMO most likely all Presidents have been Christian, and the majority of the first Congress also.

Things like Easter Eggs, Christmas Trees, etc.,originated from other practices other than Christianity, but these things have all been blended in WITH certain religious holidays.
I have always enjoyed them; practiced them.
~shrug~
They do not hold the same meaning as they did originally, most likely.

You lost me at "shortcake". And yes, your other Christians buddies have been condemning everyone to hell fire that disagrees with them. Perhaps you need to have a chat with them. Personally, I don't care if your pink with purple polk-a-dots. Are you an honorable person and are you kind? That's all that matters to me.

Around here it's not just the JW's but the Mormon's as well. Whatever floats your boat...just don't come sail it in my pond. That's my motto!
Have a great day!(Really)

In those days few people could read and write. Word of mouth from eye-witnesses is what started and established Christianity. Why do you think we are still discussing it almost 2000 years later?

There is nothing unbelievable about the Story of Adam and Eve. What is hard to believe is the implication that Eve was the "first sinner." What bull-shit? Satan was the "first sinner." However, as usual,blame the poor woman for all of man's ills. Sound like 'sexism' to me.
