Re: Jesus: It’s all about the empty tomb

There's no doubt in my mind that the Buddha was either a liar, mentally ill, or possessed by the devil himself. The Buddha was deceived by the serpent (the naga), just as Eve was. Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is...

How Math Proved the Bible's Authority

In Four of the five Books of Moses, every fiftieth letter spells out the word Torah. In the first two Books of Moses, Torah is spelled forwards, with every fiftieth letter. In the last two books of Moses, Torah is spelled backwards with every fiftieth letter. In the Book of Leviticus, it's even more...

Re: Jesus: It’s all about the empty tomb

In fact, during the Buddha’s purported enlightenment experience, he was attended by a half-human, half-serpent known as a “naga.” Perhaps he was deceived by the devil, just like Eve.

Re: Jesus: It’s all about the empty tomb

I just donated to India National Inland Mission, a Christian missionary organization founded by Paul Pillai, a former Hindu. They run a Bible college and an orphanage, as well as planting churches in the northern states of India.

Re: Jesus: It’s all about the empty tomb

Regardless of whether or not the first few chapters of Genesis are literal history, there are important theological lessons that can be learned from it. The serpent, which represents Satan, tempts Eve with the fruit of knowledge of good and evil, promising that it will make her like God. It's a warn...

Re: Religions Chart

Christianity is the world's largest religion. This makes sense if God is a just God who wants to save as many people as possible.

Re: Jesus: It’s all about the empty tomb

In reality, we can only have true repentance if we come to the Lord with a broken spirit:
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. - Psalm 51:17

Re: Jesus: It’s all about the empty tomb

I can go on an internet forum and present evidences for Jesus' resurrection, but they will only be efficacious if God has called you to believe. I don't judge or condemn others for their disbelief, because judgment belongs to God alone.

I have no special spiritual knowledge or attainments. I am just a flawed, broken person who Jesus has, for whatever reason, chosen to save. All I can do is, going forward, live a better life as best as I can, in gratitude for his unmerited grace.

Re: Jesus: It’s all about the empty tomb

So far, I have not seen any actual refutation of the claim that the resurrection of Christ is a uniquely historical event. Seeing a vision of a deceased Buddhist monk is not the same as Jesus in a glorified, flesh and bone body that eats, drinks, and can be touched and yet disappears at will.

I have come to realize that Jesus is Himself Krishna, Muhammad, Buddha, and all the Same Jesus Christ all the while. Is there any evidence of this in the New Testament?

Re: Jesus: It’s all about the empty tomb

If necessary, I can provide a list of verses from the Gospels in which Jesus claims to be a uniquely divine being, above all other teachers and purported saviors. This is not because I insist that all people be Christian, but instead because I don't believe that false claims should be made about wha...

Many religious leaders are said to have been resurrected. Here are just a few: That's a list of mythical figures rather than historical people. Jesus, on the other hand, is a historical person, and his apostles willingly died for their testimony that they witnessed him returned, in the flesh, in a ...

Re: Jesus: It’s all about the empty tomb

I'm not here to point the finger at other people, as if I am holier-than-thou. The reality is that I am a very broken person who God has, for whatever reason, chosen to save. I hope that God will also open up your hearts to the lordship of Jesus Christ, but I am not here to judge or condemn anyone.

Re: Jesus: It’s all about the empty tomb

A great Chinese Master Huineng died around 713. My Master Hsuan Hua, after his mother died, set up a little lean-to by her grave to pray for her after death status. This was around 1930?, not sure. At any rate, one night a visitor showed up and sat beside the boy. The visitor & young Master talked ...
