Over the next three days I will present three items for discussion that I contest will prove that the resurrection of Christ is a fact of history and thus Christianity is the one and only true religion. I will lay out evidence in historical records outside of just the Bible.
These three points are:
1. Jesus died by Crucifixion
2. The empty tomb
3. His bodily appearances after death
As I stated yesterday, if the resurrection of Christ is true, then any religion that denies it (to my knowledge that would be all of them, please correct me on that if I'm wrong) is false. If the resurrection is false, then Christianity is false as that is the foundation of the Christian faith that Christ rose from the dead and as a result conquered sin, death and satan's authority on earth in order for us to have the opportunity to accept that atoning death for our lives.
I will be getting a majority of my information from a book entitled, Paul Meets Muhammad: A Christian-Muslim Debate on the Resurrection. If you have not read this book yet, I HIGHLY recommend it. It is one of the most creative and thought provoking books I've ever read on that topic.
While there is no way these topics can be discussed exhaustively in three short posts, I hope to at least give everyone something to think about and investigate further on their own.
As always, my rules of comments apply...no personal attacks. I will be even more strict than normal on these posts because I want everyone to feel completely free to discuss their ideas without being attacked personally.
