Frequently Asked Questions

2. Can Christianity be proved?

Christianity is not a blind ignorant faith, but an intelligent one. Never has any individual been called to commit intellectual suicide in trusting Jesus as saviour and Lord. Christianity claims a moral certainty, to anyone who is willing to take the evidence, weigh and evaluate it. It claims an external verification through evidence, as well as an internal witness through God.

To those outside the Christian faith, Christianity can be shown to rest on strong evidence and have a high degree of probability for its truth claims.

Science :

The facts of science and geology completely support Biblical Creation and Christianity and disprove the myth of evolution. The fossil record shows the sudden appearance of each fixed kind of creature God created, with unbridgeable gaps inbetween. Evolution would require them to be blended together by countless transitional links- but there are no fossils or any creatures around today showing any gradual change between kinds, nor is there any possible mechanism- mutations are rare and harmful and cannot lead to sustained positive change, likewise, natural selection leads to a loss of rather than to new information. Also, complex structures with many interdependent parts like the eye and the reproductive system could never form in steps by evolution- they would be of no use or advantage only partially formed- they had to be created complete and operational by God, just as the Bible and Christianity teach.

Archaeology And History :
The Bible and Christianity are true. All the Bible's accounts are fully trustworthy and are supported by archaeological finds and historical records, including the Genesis Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Israel's miraculous exodus from Egypt and the many kings and battles mentioned, as well as the eyewitness accounts of the life of Jesus - which are even supported by the writings of non-Christian first century historians, despite their being hostile to Christianity itself. Overwhelming manuscript evidence shows the whole Bible has been reliably preserved, and the incredible patterns of numerics plus the Bible and Messiah Codes found incorporated in its text, as well as its internal harmony further prove its Author to be God, and Christianity to be true.

Fulfilled Prophecies :
Literally hundreds of Bible prophecies have been marvellously fulfilled. The Old Testament (the part of the Bible written before Jesus' birth) was completed in 450BC, hundreds of years before Jesus was born.

More than 300 prophecies like this were made in the Old Testament and then fulfilled through Jesus' life, death and resurrection.The chances of one person fulfilling a mere 8 of these prophecies are 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000. For one person to fulfill 48 of these prophecies, the number becomes staggering. 1 chance in 10 to the 157th power (1 with 157 zeros after it). Add to that the 250 other prophecies and it becomes impossible for any other person except Jesus to ever fit that particular sequence of time and events.

Here are a few of the many prophecies in the Bible that were fulfilled.

Of His Birth :
1. He will be born of a woman (Gen:3:15, fulfilled in Gala:4:4)

3. He will come from the tribe of Judah (Gen:49:10, fulfilled in Mathew 1:1-16)
4. He will be born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14, fulfilled in Mathew 1:23)
5. He will be born in Bethlehem, Ephrathah (Micah 5:2, fulfilled in Luke 2:4)

Of His Death :
1. He will be betrayed by a friend (Psalm :41:9, fulfilled in John:13:18-21)
2. He will be mocked (Psalm:22:7:8, fulfilled in Mathew:27:39-44)
3. He will be forsaken by God (Psalm :22:1, fulfilled in Mathew 27:46)

Of His Resurrection and Ascension :
1. His body will not be corrupted in Death (Psalm :16:10, fulfilled in Luke:24:6, 31, 34)
2. He will ascend to heaven and give gifts to man. (Psalm:68:18, fulfilled in Acts:1:9, Ephesians 4:7-13)
