    In Acts 4:8-12 (NIV)

    8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people! 9 If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed, 10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed.

    11 Jesus is

    “‘the stone you builders rejected,
    which has become the cornerstone.’[a]

    12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

    Some bloke who allegedly lived 2000 years ago
    and ended up nailed to a plank of wood because
    the Romans thought he was the leader of a Jewish
    rebellion in Judea.

    To me, Jesus is God incarnate, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the one that will create a new heaven and earth, my only hope of salvation, and the only source of eternal life, just to name a few. There is no need for me to search out other religions for they offer only death and destruction. That is why I declare myself a Christian and I have hope and faith that Jesus the Christ will confirm my declaration.

    HalleluYah !!! Praise the Lord! Holy! Holy! Holy!

    Well, I am going to suggest that Jesus is far more than you suppose. The number of prophecies fulfilled by him are astounding which make him far more than 'some bloke that ended up nailed to a plank of wood'. But I suppose prophecies need to have some value to you, for the fact to mean anything to you. Do prophecies mean anything to you?

    Only if it can be proven that

    A. said something specific would happen at such a time, and

    B. it did.

    If I told you that you would win the state lottery next week and your
    numbers would be as follows, then yes I would put some credence
    into that sort of prophecy. If it came true.

    Nostradamus had prophecies also, but I don't see you worshiping him.

    Nostradamus never predicted that he would rise from the dead at the end of three days either. Did he? 😏

    My old tag was jaywill.

    Jesus is God become a man to be Lord and Savior and the Head of a new humanity.

    Jesus is what God meant by human beings.

    The problem with Nostradaums is he always comes out of the closet after some event. People will look at the event and attribute it to something he sad, his predictions are never beforehand, therefore they are not predictions at all.

    How can you say that when he is supposed to have predicted Hitler
    and other events far into the future compared to the time that he lived in?


    When it come to that can you prove to me or anyone else that god exists?

    No. You can't and neither can anyone else.
