Since none of my questions have fit the forum criteria. I request that you present your case for Jesus, and you put me on trial for a change.

Again this forum is for 'seekers' .. you do not appear to be seeking salvation in any way shape or form.... Seems your play day has come to the end you have been waiting for.... Kinda a shame.. Christians do not have to be doormats ,,,

Joh 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

He's needs to buy a book. Case for Faith or Not God's Type (atheist professor turned to Christian) and my all time favorite:
Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels Kindle Edition Which I own and can loan if you have a Kindle ;) A new one that looks good by the same author is Forensic Faith. This is just a start of the many good books that make the case for Christianity. And for Christ? The Case for Christ: A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus Sep 6, 2016 | Kindle eBook

There's no reason for anyone to troll a Christian forum demanding Christians engage in proving their faith when there's so many good books to explore. The above authors were non believers and their books are results of their coming to faith. Many atheists came to faith that way. They explored the truth claims of Christianity and came away believers.

tears,

This is a very large topic. As a starter, would you like me to present evidence for these aspects of Jesus' ministry life on earth, his death, burial, resurrection and continuing work (through the Holy Spirit) now that He has ascended?

This will include dealing with these kinds of topics (not comprehensive) regarding the defense of Jesus Christ:
  1. The atonement, justification and propitiation;
  2. Attributes of Jesus;
  3. Jesus, virgin birth and 'Christmas';
  4. Deity of Christ;
  5. The Trinity and Jesus;
  6. The incarnation and Easter;
  7. The Gospel;
  8. Hell - Hades, Gehenna & Heaven/Paradise;
  9. Heresies or false teaching regarding Jesus;
  10. The historical Jesus;
  11. Why martyrdom for Jesus?
  12. OT prophecies about Jesus;
  13. Salvation - forgiveness, repentance, faith, regeneration, eternal life, apostasy;
  14. Why did Jesus' need to die a bloody death by crucifixion?
  15. Jesus' resurrection;
  16. Jesus' second coming;
  17. Jesus and the sin problem;
  18. Etc
On which topic would you like me to start?

tears4tears,

It's 2 months since you made this post and I have not seen your replies to any of the posters who have responded to you.

Are you an intentional spamming lurker?

If you didn't accept the lengthy testimony (NT) what more can we add that would convince you?? You should note its the "good news" of the gospels not bad news.

The Questions for Christians forum is not a debate forum. This forum is reserved for seekers (non-Christians) to ask questions and for Christians to reply with respect and kindness.

If tears4fears is not much of a reader (not everyone is) they may be interested in a movie? I've just got my own copy of this on DVD!

I watched it.
It was reminding me of Josh McDowell. I might have the name wrong, I read it many years ago.
He was a journalist who set out to disprove Christianity and ended up being a believer. He wrote a book, Evidence That Demands A Verdict.

A movie I liked a lot along the same theme is Risen, with Joseph Fiennes.
It takes place right after Jesus' resurrection, or shortly after.

Also, if someone were really serious about discovering Christianity I'd recommend
Who Moved the Stone and Mere Christianity.
Frank Morris and C.S. Lewis, respectively.

I plan to see the movie you posted but I'll have to wait a little longer for it here where I live.
Thanks for posting it!

BTW, if the O.P. is reading along, he/she should make an effort to read or see the above mentioned.

I don't really know about Jesus but when reasoning of pretty much all things in the world is exhausted and you've reached a point where you can't explain something with reason you usually find God there... I do anyway.

Alright, Jesus said "I am not of this world ....though you do not believe me, believe the miracles.....i'll tell you things hidden since the creation of the world" (John 8:23,John 10:38,Matt 13:35)
so wouldn't be a bit illogical and unscientific of you not to hear him out?
Hey Spock will you listen?

Jesus exists and the bible can be applied to life today, with study. Only spiritual growth can help a person understand it. It makes sense when the Holy Spirit is involved. I failed all my GCSES but i understand the bible very well. I am no one special, but over time things have made more sense.
