The link below list several historians far closer to the event of Christ who do not deny his life, his death and the evnts that transpired according to scripture.  Take time to read them.

Patently false.  Your remarks are mostly hearsay lacking irrefutable evidence.  I have heard the same claim regarding the old testament from folks like you who talk about second hand disagreements with no evidence. Yet Israel has the oldest manuscript of the book of Isaiah, over 1000 years old, and it matches our scripture today. There is history that makes it difficult to say the Bible is fantasy.  I have researched historian writings of the Christian events no further out then 100 years that are conclusive.

Your thread is a duplicate of the one in the religion forum, not appropiate for this forum as it is for the religion forum.
Actually I'm just repeating what modern biblical scholars, Christian and non-Christian alike, hold to be true. Now what filters down to church-goers is a different thing entirely.

Then how about links to your sources?  I have linked you my sources and all you are offering me is your second hand opinions minus your resources.  I have no idea who you are referring to nor have you invested time in this discussion.

1000 years old post dates the controversies described and therefore is not evidence for your position.

  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

Wrong, the argument used frequently is that we can not trust scripture due to the constant passing down and rewriting.  The Dead Sea scrolls containing the book of Isaiah destroys this claim.  It is over 1000 years old and matches, almost perfectly what we have today.  I doubt few of you know the painstaking process over the centuries the Jews took to ensure accuracy.

The Old Testament, the New Testament is a series of letters, mostly, from the Apostles.  Curious, what is it about the Bible's message that does not sit well with folks?

Well you can no more deny a Creator as you can a builder or a painter as their work is evidence of just that.  There is no way that all these accidents created a perfectly balance system of life.  The odds are impossible no matter how many thousands or million of years has passed.  We have not ever witness life created out of nothing by accident.  This is why I say it takes far more faith for you to believe this then for me to believe in God.

About as good a place as any for this post.

I was listening to a Christian radio station (yes, there are such things).  I listen to it frequently because I like what I call, for lack of a better word, "Christian rock and roll."

They also deliver news and editorial comment.  One item I listened to today concerned the relationship between education and "religiosity."  It said that studies have shown that the greater a person's educational attainment the less that person was involved in religious worship EXCEPT in the case of Christians. That was true for Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, etc.  but NOT true for Christians.  Which begs the question, why?

The broadcast did not answer that question.  But I know the answer.  While I know that all people who claim to be Christian are not, I also know the reason a person is a Christian.  It is because of what God did.  Members of all other religions do not even claim that.  But the Book of Books says that is the ONLY way to become Christian.

I'll leave it at that.  This forum is not a place to discuss theology.  But I figured the Christian forum was a good place for this post.
