4 Reasons Why Christianity is True

4 Reasons Why Christianity is True

Peter Guirguis Apologetics 5 Comments

Last week, I shared with you a blog post and video about why Christianity is the right religion out of 4,200.

Today, I’m sharing with you 4 reasons why Christianity is true.

These reasons are different from last week’s post, and you’ll want to check them out because you may find them compelling.

By the way, this video isn’t by me; it’s by a wonderful brother by the name of Frank Turek.

Frank is a well-known apologist, gifted speaker, and the author of the best-selling book, I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist.

So watch this short video by Frank.

And if you’d rather read this blog post instead of watching the video, then you can read the article below.

 

The reason why Christianity is true is because the answer to these 4 questions is, “Yes.”

Question #1 Does Truth Exist?

Obviously, you hear people say all the time, “There is no truth,” or, “You got your truth,” “I got my truth,” “All truth is relative.”

When somebody says, “There is not truth,” you outta ask that person a question.

You gotta say, “Is that true?

“Is it true that there’s no truth because if it’s true that there’s no truth, the claim there is no truth can’t be true, but it claims to be true.”

In other words, it’s a self-defeating claim.

Of course, there’s truth.

If there was no truth, an atheist couldn’t be right that there was no God, so there is truth.

Question #2 Does God Exist?

There are several arguments for the existence of God.

Let me just give you one.

Even atheists today are admitting that space, matter, and time had a beginning out of nothing.

Well, think about this, friends.

If space, matter, and time had a beginning out of nothing, whatever created space, matter, and time can’t be made of space, matter, and time.

Now, when you think about a spaceless, timeless, immaterial, powerful, personal, intelligence cause, who do you think of?

God.

Now, we don’t know it’s the Christian God at this point, but we know it’s a theistic god, a being who’s beyond the world who created the world.

God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do .

Question #3 Are Miracles Possible?

Obviously, Christianity can’t be true if miracles are not possible, but the greatest miracle in the Bible has already occurred, and we have scientific evidence for it.

What’s that?

I just mentioned it, the creation of the universe out of nothing.

If Genesis 1:1 is true, every other verse in the Bible is at least possible because if there’s a Being that can create the universe out of nothing, can He do whatever He wants inside the universe, if He can create the whole show out of nothing?

Of course.

He can resurrect Jesus on the dead or walk on water or part the Red Sea.

He can do any of that.

is anything too hard for the Lord

Question #4 Is the New Testament Reliable Enough to Show Us That Jesus Rose from the Dead?

The reason we believe in Christianity is because an event occurred: the resurrection.

Now, I have to ask you this…

Why would the Jewish writers of the New Testament, all who were Jewish with the exception of Luke, why would they invent a resurrected Jesus?

Why would they say that a man who claimed to be God rose from the dead if it didn’t happen?

They thought that it would be blasphemy for a man to claim to be God.

Why would they invent a resurrected Jesus?

They already thought they were God’s chosen people.

They had no motive to invent a resurrected Jesus, and certainly, they could not have invented it in Jerusalem where an empty tomb existed.

In other words, ladies and gentleman, the New Testament writers did not create the resurrection.

The resurrection created the New Testament writers.

There would be no New Testament if it wasn’t for the resurrection.

Now, even if the New Testament never existed, Christianity would still be true.

Why?

Because Christianity’s based on an event: the resurrection.

Do you realize there were thousands of Christians before a line in the New Testament was ever written?

Why?

Because an event occurred: the resurrection.

You have to have more faith to believe it didn’t occur than it did.

And if God exists, and He does, and can create the universe out of nothing, then He can certainly resurrect Jesus from the dead.

That’s why we believe in Christianity.

Over to You

    And while we are at it..in revelations it speaks of “the mark of the beast” and that it will be the ONLY way to buy things!..well WHO controls commerce these days..BIG BUSINESS…which IS who is RUNNING this gov now!..aka..HOW MANY GOLDMAN SACHS PPL ARE IN TRUMPS WHITE HOUSE NOW????..those trump followers were fooled TERRIBLY!..remember Jesus overturned the tables of the MONEY CHANGERS in the Temple!!..this is NOT gonna end well for those who were fooled..unless they WAKE UP!..AND STOP HATING OTHERS AND START CARING!..it also says in the Bible that we are to treat foreigners well in our home (country)..and “DO FOR THE LEAST OF THESE”..how many actually live up to that who support Trump??..when the rapture comes..who will be the chosen ones?..somehow I do NOT believe trump and his GOLDEN trump towers will be one of them..as I don’t have ANY beliefs that he would EVER give up his riches..nor would his cult followers..sad to say..

      It’s interesting that you bring up politics, Kat. I can see that this is an area of passion for you. It is a hotly debated topic. It’ll be interesting to see what other people from the Not Ashamed of the Gospel community think as well.

  2. Interesting you mentioned that “atheists today are admitting that space, matter, and time had a beginning”
    Gen 1:1 KJV
    In the beginning(TIME)
    God created the heaven(SPACE)
    and the earth(MATTER)
    However, there are many scriptures that prove the existence of The Living Christian God and HIS Only Begotten SON

    and there are literally Hundred’s of Biblical Prophecies that have come true
    if atheists don’t want to believe it, they won’t
    and that’s the whole point
    Faith First then knowledge —that’s how it works
    ANYONE who want’s to know about the existence of the SAVIOR of the World, JESUS CHRIST can do so through the power of the Holy Ghost
    Exercising that faith will give them the knowledge
    If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him
    James 1:5 KJV
    Verse 6-But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering
    WOW! Just ASK “in faith” (Sincerely)

    those who want to debate it, prove it wrong (Which is impossible to do by the way) those people will never find out in this life
    Sad really
    Point is
    If you want to know Jesus Christ, you can through the Holy Ghost
    if you don’t, you won’t
    …but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD Joshua 24:15
    and we will ALWAYS Love the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost
    Love GOD
    Believe in Christ
    and I love every second of it

  3. @Kat, I didn’t watch the video either, did the speaker bring up politicians? Two things come to mind (though possibly out of context) when reading your comment: 1) “The cross is foolishness to those who don’t believe.” And, 2) “you will know them by their fruit.” Don’t get thrown by people claiming to be “Christian” who then go and do ridiculous things. Even the truest of followers still sin, but the amount of people who will be shocked when on the final judgement Jesus looks at them and has to say, “depart from me; I never knew you.” That is the scariest passage in the Bible because it points out how deceptive the spiritual enemy is that would even make us believe we are under God’s wings when we in fact run astray, or let our lamps run out of oil. Peace.
