Why do I believe that God exists and Christianity to be the only true
 
http://www.gospeloutreach.net/whychristianity.html


by Rolaant L. McKenzie
Why do I believe that God exists and Christianity to be the only true
religion? Why do I not accept the popular idea that one religion or
philosophical worldview is just as good as another? These are important
questions that deserve rational answers. The following is my attempt to
provide them.

I will begin with atheism. There are a number of reasons why I believe
that atheism is inadequate as a rational worldview. Atheism is
inadequate as a rational worldview because it cannot adequately explain the
existence of the universe. The majesty and order of the universe, and the
wonder and complexities of life on earth, cries out for an explanation.
The atheist, however, is unable to provide a consistent one. If he
argues that matter is eternal, he is going against modern science which
states that the universe had a beginning and is gradually running down. If
the atheist affirms that the universe had a beginning, then he must
account for what caused it. Either way, the atheist cannot adequately
explain the universe and this world so full of complex forms of life.

The atheistic worldview is irrational and cannot provide an adequate
basis for intelligible experience. An atheistic world is ultimately
random, disorderly, transitory, and volatile. It is therefore incapable of
providing the necessary preconditions to account for the laws of science
and the universal laws of logic. In short, it cannot account for the
meaningful realities people encounter in life.

Atheism as a worldview can furnish no rational basis for determining
good and evil, or the human need for absolute moral standards. If there
is no God who is by nature absolutely good, then there is no absolute
standard for judging something to be good or evil. The atheist objects to
the existence of God due to the presence of evil in the world, but can
give no rationale on how he knows the difference between good and evil,
much less provide a solution to the problem apart from God.

The law of non-contradiction is the foundation for all logical
thinking. It is known by a couple different names: the law of contradiction,
and the law of non-contradiction. No matter what you call it, this law is
absolutely inviolable. The law may be defined as follows: a statement
cannot be true and not true at the same time and in the same respect.
For example: It cannot be both raining and not raining at the same time
and in the same respect. It could have been raining yesterday, but not
today. Or, it could be raining where I live but not where you live. But
it cannot be both raining and not raining at the same time and in the
same place.

The law of non-contradiction is a very useful tool in helping to arrive
at the truth regarding which worldview has more validity. For those
familiar with the conflicting doctrines of the major world religions, it
is rather apparent that they cannot all be true. Some are pantheistic,
some are polytheistic, and still others are monotheistic.

Some teach a personal God, while others teach an impersonal one. Now it
follows that if there is only one God -- if monotheism is true -- then
all religions that teach polytheism and pantheism must then of
necessity be false. And if it is true that God is a personal God, then all
religions that teach an impersonal God must be false.

Christianity teaches that when a person dies, that person will go to
heaven or to hell. Eastern religions say those who die will be
reincarnated. Now a person could go to heaven or hell, or be reincarnated, but he
cannot go to heaven or hell and be reincarnated at the same time. Both
views cannot be right. One must be wrong. We could say the same about
each of the doctrines of the various religions.

So it follows that either A) all of the major world religions are
false, or B) only one religion is true. Now I will show you why I believe
B), and why I believe that Christianity is that one true religion.

For Hindus, the highest of all truths is believed to be the truth of
all religions. It has been already demonstrated above, in the paragraphs
about the law of non-contradiction, this teaching cannot possibly be
true. This is why I reject Hinduism. Also, Hinduism teaches that our
individual identities are part of a large, divine illusion called Maya. In
other words, we do not really exist as individuals. The irrationality
of this can be seen by considering this question. How could anyone know
if they were part of a dream? It is like two characters in your dream
asking the question, "Do I exist?" How would they test such a thing?

Everything that they would measure to find out if they were real is not
real itself either, only part of the dream. How could they have true
knowledge of this? To put it most simply, does Charlie Brown know he is a
cartoon character? Of course not. It is a ludicrous, incoherent
concept. That is why in my view Hinduism is disqualified on its face. It is
obviously false that individual people can have true knowledge that they
do not really exist and are just an illusion. This is a contradiction
and therefore Hinduism must be false.

What about Islam? Let's compare Jesus and His teachings to that of
Muhammad. Jesus birth's was foretold in hundreds of prophecies. Muhammad
has no prophecies foretelling his birth or mission. Jesus was
miraculously born of a virgin. Muhammad, however, was born of the natural union of
a human father and mother. Jesus lived a sinless life (2 Corinthians
5:21) and is considered sinless by the Quran (called an all-Righteous
one). Muhammad, however was someone who needed forgiveness for his faults
(sura 40:55, 41:19). Jesus performed many miracles to substantiate His
claims (Luke 7:22), but nowhere in the Quran does it state that
Muhammad performed any miracles. None of Jesus enemies could find any fault
with Him, but even the Quran states that Muhammad took his son Zaid's
wife from him (sura 33:36-38). Finally, Muhammad is dead today. His grave
is in Medina. Jesus is alive forever. He rose from the dead and
ascended to the right hand of the Father.

Buddha also fulfilled no prophecies, was born of the natural union of a
human father and mother, lived a less than perfectly moral life, and is
dead today. Buddhism teaches that the question of God's existence is
meaningless. Buddha believed in reincarnation. He taught that every evil
thing we do ties us more tightly to the cycle of rebirth. Buddha taught
that a person can escape the cycle of reincarnation and enter nirvana
only by following the "Noble Eight-fold Path", a strict ethical system.
Buddhist teachings include dedication to meditation. To the classical
Buddhist, to attain nirvana is simply to be out of existence. Buddhism
offers no personal salvation. It stands against sin and immorality, but
it ignores the issue of God's existence and our need for redemption. At
its root, Buddhism is a form of agnosticism or at least practical
atheism. It provides no answers about the ultimate meaning of existence.
Although its answers may be better than no answers at all, by denying the
ultimate meaningfulness of life Buddhism provides its followers with
little motivation to conquer evil or to work for justice. Jesus Christ,
in contrast, confronts us with the need to become right with God and to
introduce a new order into the world, an order He called "the kingdom
of God."

Probably the oldest religious tradition is that of Animism, found
mostly among the so-called "primitive" peoples of the world such as the
Native American cultures. Animism teaches that the world is populated by a
myriad of spirit beings that can be appeased and manipulated through
ritual and magic. Animism is a large part of the Wiccan belief system and
occurs commonly in occult and spiritism circles. It is also a large
factor in the belief in "luck." The major weakness of animistic religion
is that it is basically non-ethical.

The goal in this religion is primarily to procure the best advantage in
the power struggle of the spirit world. There are no ultimate absolutes
other than what the spirits of a clan prefer. These are the mores of
the tribe. The spirits are finite and experience the same failures as
humans. Animism also is ultimately subjective and irrational. Animists are
not generally open to a rational examination of their beliefs. It is
the experience that counts. Authority comes from tradition. "My ancestors
did this for hundreds of years!" Animism leads to fatalism and despair
because it provides no answers to the questions of life's meaning and
significance, or purpose in history. There is no basis for human dignity
in animism. Humans are on the same level as all other forms of life. It
is essentially a religion of demons (idolatry). Missionaries who work
on reservations in the American west often speak of the oppressive
atmosphere as a result of spirit bondage. It is a religion of fear.
Alcoholism and suicide are major problems in most animistic cultures.

Regarding Wicca, witches follow a principle of ethics known as the
Wiccan Rede: "That ye harm none, do what ye will." Whether witches realize
it or not, their views raise some very problematic issues even over and
above those raised by animism above: (1) Where does the Wiccan Rede
derive from? (2) If there is "no one right religion, way, or truth for
all," then why is this rule (the Wiccan Rede) universal? How do we know
that witches are not just trying to impose their rule on us to "shackle
our minds and actions," as they put it? (3) How do witches account for
the origin and existence of evil and suffering?

Since I believe that Jesus is indeed the promised Messiah of the Old
Testament, as I will show below, then automatically I must reject
Rabbinic/traditional Judaism since they reject Jesus as the Messiah.

The only other great religious traditions that I know about are those
of Taoism in China and Shintoism in Japan. These religions are
pantheistic like Hinduism, but also have a number of animistic characteristics.
Those teachings have been adequately covered above.

Regarding Jesus Christ, the tenants of Christianity are not based on
some kind of blind faith -- as some people have claimed. In fact,
Christianity depends very much on the testimony of eyewitnesses. A large
portion of the Bible is just that: the eyewitness accounts of people who
were actually there. Christians do not depend on a single individual's
revelation of the truth (as, for example, in Islam and Buddhism). In fact,
Jesus Christ, the object of the Christian's devotion and the focal
point of all Scripture, did not write a single word of the Bible!

Some say that Jesus was a myth, that He was not a historical figure.
These people maintain that no credible evidence exists that would
substantiate His historicity. But nothing can be further from the truth. There
is actually better historical evidence for the existence of Jesus and
what Christians believe about Him than for just about any ancient
historical figure. For example, the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus, who
was not a Christian, wrote in 93-94 A.D.:


"At this time there was a wise man who was called Jesus. And his
conduct was good, and [he] was known to be virtuous. And many people from
among the Jews and other nations became his disciples. Pilate condemned
him to be crucified and to die. And those who had become his disciples
did not abandon his discipleship. They reported that he had appeared to
them three days after his crucifixion and that he was alive;
accordingly, he was perhaps the messiah concerning whom the prophets have
recounted wonders." Antiquities of the Jews, XVIII.iii.3

A Roman historian by the name of Cornelius Tacitus wrote in 112 A.D.:

"Christus, the founder of the name, was put to death by Pontius Pilate,
procurator of Judea in the reign of Tiberius: but the pernicious
superstition, repressed for a time broke out again, not only through Judea,
where the mischief originated, but through the city of Rome also."
Annals, XV.44

While there are other references outside the Bible that demonstrate
Jesus was an actual historical person, for the sake of brevity these two
examples should suffice.

The teachings of Jesus Christ and the claims He made for Himself are
well documented in the first four books of the New Testament (Matthew,
Mark, Luke and John) in the Bible. But those claims would be nothing if
He failed to rise from the dead after He was crucified, as He predicted
He would. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is considered to be the
cornerstone of the Christian faith. Without it, Jesus is a fraud and
Christianity a false religion. So the question before us is this: "Did Jesus
rise from the dead?"

The Christian Church is worldwide in scope. Its history can be traced
back to Palestine around 32 AD. Did it just happen or was there a cause
for it? These people who were first called Christians at Antioch turned
the world of their time upside down. They constantly referred to the
resurrection as the basis for their teaching, preaching, living, and --
significantly -- dying. The Apostle Paul summed up very well what the
gospel is in 1 Corinthians 15:1-11. There he defined it as Jesus dying
for the sins of humanity and rising from the dead, according to the
Scriptures. Paul also said, "And if Christ be not risen, then is our
preaching vain, and your faith is also vain". He said, "And if Christ be not
raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins". And furthermore,
he said, "Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished
if Christ has not been raised from the dead." (1 Corinthians 15:12-20)
The apostles preached this message because the resurrection of Jesus
Christ proved that He was who He said He was -- the Son of God. It
demonstrated that the blood Jesus shed on the cross had the power to save
sinners, and that in the end, all will raised from the dead.

The testimony of the New Testament contains six independent testimonies
to the fact of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Three of them by
eyewitnesses: John, Peter, and Matthew. Paul, writing to the churches at an
early date, referred to the resurrection in such a way that it is
obvious that to him and his readers the event was well known and accepted
without question. Are these men, who helped transform the moral structure
of society, consummate liars or deluded madmen? These alternatives are
harder to believe than the fact of the resurrection, and there is no
evidence to support them.

Of course, there have been those who sought to cast doubt on the
veracity of the resurrection. They have advanced various explanations to
account for the open and empty tomb. But there is only one valid
explanation for the empty tomb, and that is the one the Bible presents -- that
Jesus on the third day rose from the dead and appeared to His disciples
(also some 500 others) for a period of forty days.

The apostles of Christ were eyewitnesses to His resurrection. These men
had been with Him before His death; a number of them had been with Him
for about three and a half years. They had seen Him during the trial;
some of them had seen Him die on the cross. After His resurrection,
these men associated with Him for about forty days. They talked with Him;
they handled Him; they saw Him. They had every reason for believing that
the Christ whom they saw was the one who had been crucified.

In fact, at first, some of them, notably Thomas, doubted. He said,
"Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and thrust my hand
into His side, I will not believe." Later, when Jesus appeared and told
him examine His wounds to see that He really rose from the dead, Thomas
said, "My Lord and my God." (John 20:24-28)

Now if Jesus was not really raised from the dead these apostles, were
either deceivers or they were deceived. Is it likely that these men
would be deceived, men who had known Jesus so well before His death and had
been associated with Him after His resurrection? Would these men have
had any reason to be deliberate deceivers? What was there to gain from
preaching that Christ was risen from the dead if He really had not risen
from the dead?

There was no financial gain; there was no social prestige; there was no
political power to come as a result of their preaching the
resurrection. The only prospect that they had insofar as human rewards were
concerned was the prospect of peril and persecution, of imprisonment and
death. Yet all these apostles went out and preached that Christ had been
raised from the dead. And they all, save one, paid for this testimony with
their lives. No one suffers peril, persecution, and a cruel death for
what he knows to be a lie.

If the apostles of Christ were deliberate deceivers, why is it that not
one of them under the most trying circumstances (e.g. imprisonment,
stoning, and death) ever recanted his testimony? Men do not manifest this
kind of steadfastness and loyalty to a known falsehood. They all
asserted right up to the end that they saw Jesus after He was raised from the
dead.

By their lives and deaths these men demonstrated that what they were
teaching was the truth. When they preached the resurrection, they did not
begin in Galilee; they began in Jerusalem where Christ had been
crucified. When they began preaching the resurrection, it was not to men who
knew nothing about the death of Christ; it was to men who had been
guilty of crucifying the Lord (Acts 2:22-23). These men deported themselves
as men who knew what they were talking about. They deported themselves
as men who were under tremendous conviction. No one can account for the
changed attitude of these men, for their restored hope, for their
renewed courage, for their long lives of toil and sacrifice and suffering
apart from the fact that they were prompted by the undying conviction
that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead. It is more difficult to
believe that these men acted a lie, suffered for it, and died for it, than it
is to believe in the resurrection of Christ from the dead.

It was because of their powerful testimony that faith in Jesus grew in
spite of detractors, competing religions and philosophies, and severe
state persecution. This could not take place if the resurrection was a
lie perpetrated by Jesus Himself or His apostles.

The Bible consists of 66 books written by some 40 different men
spanning a period of over 4,000 years. It contains three distinct languages
(Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic). The writers were from a wide variety of
nationalities; and their professions ranged from kings to fishermen to
tentmakers.

I believe that the Biblical text in the original languages, as it was
given, contains no errors. There are ample reasons for this, but let me
summarize a few points:

The Bible is true historically. In spite of comments to the contrary,
archeology continually has verified the validity of Bible.




The Bible is true scientifically. Nothing in Scripture has been
invalidated by science. In fact, many scientific principles are found in the
Bible. A sampling of these would include the roundness of the earth
(Isaiah 40:22), the almost infinite extent of the sidereal universe (Isaiah
55:9), the law of conservation of mass and energy (I1 Peter 3:7), the
hydrologic cycle (Ecclesiastes 1:7), the vast number of stars (Jeremiah
33:22), the equivalence of matter and energy (Hebrews 1:3), the law of
increasing entropy (Psalm 102:25-27), the paramount importance of blood
in life processes (Leviticus 17:11), the atmospheric circulation
(Ecclesiastes 1:6), the gravitational field (Job 26:7), and many others.
These are not stated in the technical jargon of modern science, of course,
but in terms of the basic world of man's everyday experience;
nevertheless, they are completely in accord with the most modern scientific
facts.




The Bible is true prophetically. Click here to read the article, "The
Bible: Proof of Its Supernatural Origin." For a detailed discussion of
this area, also see the book, "Evidence that Demands a Verdict," by Josh
McDowell. Jesus was the precise fulfillment of virtually hundreds of
Messianic prophecies! A few examples are Messiah's humanity (Genesis
3:15); Messiah's Jewishness (Genesis 12:1-3; 28:10-15); Messiah's tribe
(Genesis 49:10); Messiah's family (2 Samuel 7:16; Jeremiah 23:5-6);
Messiah's birthplace (Micah 5:2); Messiah's life, reception, suffering, work
at the cross, death, and resurrection (Isaiah 52:13; 53); and the
details of Messiah's crucifixion (Psalm 22).




To illustrate this point further, below is a list of Old Testament
prophecies and their New Testament fulfillment by Jesus Christ:

The following probabilities are taken from Peter Stoner in Science
Speaks (Moody Press, 1963) to show that coincidence is ruled out by the
science of probability. Stoner says that by using the modern science of
probability in reference to eight prophecies, we find that the chance
that any man might have lived down to the present time and fulfilled all
eight prophecies is 1 in ten to the 17th power." That would be 1 in
100,000,000,000,000,000. In order to help us comprehend this staggering
probability, Stoner illustrates it by supposing that "we take ten to the
seventeenth power silver dollars and lay them on the face of Texas. They
will cover all of the state two feet deep. Now mark one of these silver
dollars and stir the whole mass thoroughly, all over the state.
Blindfold a man and tell him that he can travel as far as he wishes, but he
must pick up one silver dollar and say that this is the right one. What
chance would he have of getting the right one? Just the same chance that
the prophets would have had of writing these eight prophecies and
having them all come true in any one man."

Stoner considers 48 prophecies and says, "we find the chance that any
one man fulfilled all 48 prophecies to be 1 in ten to the 157th power,
or 1 in
1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,00 0,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,00 0,000,000."

The estimated number of electrons in the universe is around ten to the
seventy-ninth power. It should be quite evident that Jesus did not
fulfill the prophecies by accident. He was who He said He was: the only way
(John 14:6).

It is due to the evidence presented here that I believe God exists and
Christianity to be the only true religion, and why I cannot accept as
rational the idea that one religion is just as good as another. Jesus is
who He claimed to be, and He proved this by fulfilling prophecy and
rising from the dead.

Re: Why do I believe that God exists and Christianity to be the only true
 
peace,

Quote: "What about Islam? Let's compare Jesus and His teachings to that of Muhammad. Jesus birth's was foretold in hundreds of prophecies. Muhammad has no prophecies foretelling his birth or mission. Jesus was miraculously born of a virgin. Muhammad, however, was born of the natural union of a human father and mother.

His grave is in Medina. Jesus is alive forever. He rose from the dead and ascended to the right hand of the Father."

------------------------------

First there is a mistake in this part "the Quran states that Muhammad took his son Zaid's wife from him (sura 33:36-38)" perhaps if we read these verses we can know the truth:

[33:37] Recall that you said to the one who was blessed by GOD, and blessed by you, "Keep your wife and reverence GOD," and you hid inside yourself what GOD wished to proclaim. Thus, you feared the people, when you were supposed to fear only GOD. When Zeid was completely through with his wife, we had you marry her, in order to establish the precedent that a man can marry the divorced wife of his adopted son. GOD's commands shall be done.


Also Muhammad was prophesied in both the Torah and the Gospel,

"A prophet like me will the Lord, your God, raise up for you from among your kinsmen; to him you shall listen" [Deuteronomy 18:15]

As for Jesus being sinless and the perfect offering, it was the invention of the Jewish Paul who was raised on the Jewish false idea that the quality of the offering is what brings redemption (and not the reverence of God attached), later he came up with the idea that Jesus being the only male "son of God" was the perfect offering to carry the sins of all the Human beings. Thus he cancelled the law and invented the idea of free salvation (just by accepting Christ).

The truth is Jesus was sent to the Jews only to confirm the truths in the Torah and purify it of the satanic injections, later Paul took a distorted version of his teachings to the gentiles against his will.

I believe that there is no competition between God's prophets, they are all equal in the eyes of the true believer, any attempt to elevate one of them above the others is idol-worship and setting partners beside God.


[5:116] GOD will say, "O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say to the people, `Make me and my mother idols beside GOD?' " He will say, "Be You glorified. I could not utter what was not right. Had I said it, You already would have known it. You know my thoughts, and I do not know Your thoughts. You know all the secrets.

[5:117] "I told them only what You commanded me to say, that: `You shall worship GOD, my Lord and your Lord.' I was a witness among them for as long as I lived with them. When You terminated my life on earth, You became the Watcher over them. You witness all things.

The truth is there was always one religion, Submission, the religion of our father Abraham, we shall all follow it and keep the covenant with God, by leading a righetous life based on belief in God alone, only then we can be redeemed and join the kingdom of Heaven.

[3:64] Say, "O followers of the scripture, let us come to a logical agreement between us and you: that we shall not worship except GOD; that we never set up any idols besides Him, nor set up any human beings as lords beside GOD." If they turn away, say, "Bear witness that we are submitters."

Re: Why do I believe that God exists and Christianity to be the only true
 
Ive heard the same thing stated by Chuck Missler..

One thing is Chucky tried to explain were the figures are comeing from..

You just cant expect anyone to just go with the flow of any calculation result unless you give proper reason from where those results came from..

PS..I think the probability of creating a string of protien molecules or even the creation of DNA are even higher then what you stated m8..basically Scientific terms " Its in the Impossible catagory"

Its like saying give a junkyard millions of parts to build a car..have all the storms,electrisity,earthquakes,,etc and expect a simple Ford model A created with nature..wont happen..ever..yet peeps wont even look into what a living cell is all about. There are microscopic "factories" in the cell..how the hell can a person believe evolution when they cant even explain how or were the first cell organism came from ( much less protien or DNA came from to begin with )

not only that..then you have cells that reproduce only what its programmed to do..what is that all about ? how does a cell know what "it" is without some outside program to tell it is what it is..and when to stop making the same thing..and then switch to start making another organ..or brain cell..or skull cell..or whatever..

Quite impossible.

Im with you on this one m8..GO gettem !!

This is how I came to a sense of God.

As a fellow said to me..."if you saw a finely made Swiss watch would you EVER comprehend that it had assembled itself 'spontaneously'?"

There is a creator.

Whats more, THAT creator ACTUALLY cares about the individual. If one can STOOP low enough you can indeed hear the word of God.

It's called a conscience.

Ahmed has shown himself dignified in the face of many attacks. Some by me. For that I give his views much consideration. This is what led me to take Henry Makows claims more seriously.

I NEVER believed the NWO conspiracy to be anything more than the ravings of idiots with too much time on their hands and too much money. The understanding of the deliberate and ultimately evil force behind this program has largely come from taking Makows succinct writings seriously and following up the literature.

At the moment I am happy to believe through my own understanding the story and meaning of Christ.

I believe Muhammed was indeed a prophet and sent by God. The words of the Quaran speak for themselves and the DIGNITY of the many Muslims who have been subjected to INTOLERABLE interference and "death from above" for YEARS, means we MUST not let OUTSIDE FORCES seperate the Muslim and Christian people from a common enemy...

International Zionist Extremism.

Christ was the correction of many wrongs.

Islam is a reminder note.

Ahmeds focus on the seperation of the 3 desert religions and how evil benefits from splitting peoples from each other is instructive.

Re: Why do I believe that God exists and Christianity to be the only true
 
Henry writes better than any other when describing the entity, the "Octopus' Tentacles" that have encapsulated a stranglehold on the freedoms of our humankind.
