Response to lawrence01's - "Jesus: Fact or Fiction?"
The Sword of the Lord
Jesus Is As True and Live As We Are
Ok lawrence01, by the way, you have a picture of a beautiful looking Bible. When someone does research on a subject, an object an animal or a person it seems that they must research it from the outside, looking in (so to say) from all sides and every aspect of researching instead of researching it from within. Scientific methods are proven just that way.
The existence of Jesus cannot be researched and proven that way. To do research to verify the existence of Jesus or even God just does not make sense to me. There is no possible way to prove or verify that Jesus existed or did not exist back in time or the same for God's existence or not existence except through the faith of believing what the initial Bible says, starting in the beginning of Genesis. They are the originals. We're made in the image of Them. There are believers that would rather not debate the question or the issue simply because they couldn’t fathom how atheists or non-believers think outside the box of believing in Jesus or God. It would erupt into an argument because each side would be determined to prove their point of view. I see people here on HP expressing their views all the time. Many times the conversations get very harsh.
God Is Not Responsible For Mishaps
There are people mad and therefore, hate God because they think He is responsible for a lot of unfortunate mishaps in life. That means that they believe He exists, right? Yes, but God is good. Read in the Bible https://www.biblegateway.com/verse/en/Romans%208:28 . There are certain but simple things required of us in order to obtain favor of God. He commands us to love Him and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. Those are normal things to do with no labor because we were made by Him to believe in His order of good life. Right now, I can only attest to blessings that God has bestowed on me. Therefore, it is easy for me to continue believing as I do. If someone asked me, “How do you know that God did it for you?” I would say, God is whom I choose to believe in. If I opposed God, I would fear Him because I am convinced that He is all-powerful. I have no fear of anything or anyone. I need not convince anyone that God exists. They can only find that out just like I did. However, I have believed in God since childhood when my mother insisted that I go to church every week. That’s the best thing she did for me besides sending me to schools. It’s unfortunate that some people don’t use the capacity of their brain that was made for them to believe specifically in God and the plan He Had for our redemption through faith in Jesus Christ, after living a wretched life.
