  • Yes, any rational and open-minded person believes in Jesus. Now, whether they believe He is the Son of God, a teacher, a prophet or just a regular man who walked the Earth 2000 years ago is highly debated among many religions. One thing all religions can agree with: The Encyclopaedia Britannica supports that Jesus is a religious leader.

      Any rational person knows Jesus Christ never existed. Jenny_Riz claims to be logical and rational while blindly believing in illogical and irrational things. 71% of the world does not follow Jesus.

    • Jenny_Rizzo
      ReiSan, you are a broken record. I told you various times that 95% of the world are not Christians. The Bible talks about this new age, were the majority will depart from the faith. it is rare if you come across biblical Christians nowadays. Going to your claims that Jesus never existed, do you have any records to support your claims?

      we are dough 68, quote: "because they cannot handle the prospect of death." If I am wrong, I have nothing to worry about. But if you are wrong, you are in for a rude awakening. Do you want me to give you evidence on the lake of fire?

      Any member of any religion can use Pascal's Wager as you do. If you are wrong, Amaterasu will send you to Yomi, Zeus will send you to Tartarus, Odin will send you to Niflheim, etc. To be safe by Pascal's Wager, you must worship every god men have invented. There is no more evidence for Hell than for Yomi, Tartarus, etc. !
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      ReiSan, quote: "There is no more evidence for Hell than for Yomi, Tartarus, etc. !" Hell is not what the majority of people think, hell is the common grave by the Hebrew word Sheol. The lake of fire in which the Bible talks about is the Earth's core. Psalm 63:9 "But those who seek to destroy my life shall go down into the depths of the Earth;" Revelation 21:8 "But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death." Lava is as real as you see it.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      ReiSan, quote: "Any member of any religion can use Pascal's Wager as you do." Actually they can't, now that you can't prove anything with those "other books." If you could, I am sure you would share their teachings with actual reference so we can compare all religious books. Instead, your remarks are illogical.
    • Venus1485
      Yes, and member of any religion can use Pascal's Wager. I can hardly believe how illogical Jenny is. No sacred book is any more rel that all the many others. Jenny can't prove anything just by reciting the Bible. That is circular reasoning. It's quite illogical. Jenny casually dismisses all other sacred books with no proof. Let her prove all of the others are false. There is no more evidence for God than there is for Zeus, Odin, Jove, etc., and ther3e is indeed no more proof of Hell than Niflheim, Tartarus, etc. Jenny rushes to judgement and ha no logical arguments.
    • Venus1485
      Any rational person questions the existenc3e of Jesus. Encyclopedia Britannica isn't a holy book. Appeal to authority is illogical. Jenny has no logic or truth or decency, since she insults people and lies terribly about them. She disgraces her beliefs.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Venus1485, the Bible is the strictest book when it speaks of the consequences of sin. No other religious book is close. How is it Pascal's Wager when the Bible describes the lake of fire in the logical view? Are you also going to claim there is no such thing as the Earth's core?
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Venus1485, quote: "Encyclopedia Britannica isn't a holy book." Who said it was a Holy book? I used it in my answer to prove the reliability and the reputation which has long been the "most respected" of all of the general encyclopedias.

      Rick, in case you didn't know, ReiSan goes around saying that Jesus Christ never existed, yet he or she is unable to lay a brick with this so-called evidence. lol
    • Rick
      I know thanks. But . . . . . Lol Oh BTW I keep seeing smiley's in some replies any idea how to do that?
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Rick, I have a good sense of humor. It's better that these kids deal with me than to deal with Muslims who do not play around if you make fun of Allah and Muhammad. You are not going to believe this. I answered a question about Muslim beliefs, and the next thing you know, my answer was deleted. I wonder who is working for the AB staff.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      we are dough 68, it looks like the cat got your tongue. That's what you get for picking the wrong fight.
    • ReiSan
      Jenny_Riz never gives any evidence. There is no genuine evidence that Jesus ever existed. There are strong arguments against his existence however.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      ReiSan, I gave you plenty of evidence by the credibility of Flavius Josephus. Which it is no surprise why billions of people around the world believe in Jesus. Whether other religions teach Jesus is a prophet, a teacher or a good man as Richard Dawkins mentioned in his interview, it doesn't doubt His existence.
    • Venus1485
      The passages about Jesus in Josephus are much later forgeries by Christian copyists. I knew that even when I was a Christian. The most educated and objective Christians know the passages in Josephus' writings are clumsy forgeries. Origen and other early Christains were not aware of any such passages by Josephus. Jenny depends upon this clumsy forgery as evidence. she's monumentally illogical. Therre are 2.2 billion Christians in 7.6 billion world population. Appeal to popularity is illogical. Jenny has only illogical arguments, bad fiction of the Bible, silly lies and vile insults to offer in support of her na?ve beliefs.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Venus 1485, the passages could not have been forged when the Old Testament mentioned how crucifixions would take place during the time of Jesus. Isaiah 53:5 "But He was pierced for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His wounds we are healed."
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Quote: "Therre are 2.2 billion Christians in 7.6 billion world population. Appeal to popularity is illogical." To further add to the population, there would be more Christians in Northern Africa and in the middle-east if Islam did not convert its members with the sword.
    • ReiSan
      NO!
  • I don't have doubt. I believe who he is.
  • I have faith in him!
    • ReiSan
      Faith has no evidence. 71% of the world does not believe in Jesus Christ.
    • we are dough 68
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      ReiSan, you are incorrect. What makes you think there are 71% of non-believers in the world?
    • ReiSan
      Some surveys show the numbers of Christians and non-Christians. 71% of the people of the world have other religions or are unbelievers in any religion. Most Japanese practice Kami no Michi. India has Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism. Arabia is Muslim. Communist nations ar3e atheistic. My figures are3e accurate.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      ReiSan, those surveys are a fraud. There are 2.4 billion Christians worldwide. Do a research. Catholics, Baptists and Pentecostals add up the most part of believers in Christianity. Although this is not the case. I don't agree there is that many Christians. The Bible determines true Christians. There are no more than 30 million Christians in the world if you ask me. This is the SDA church and other non-denominational Christians who live by the teachings of the Bible: https://www.adventist.org/en/ To speak of "actual figures," the biblical estimate is 100% accurate. Matthew 22:14 "For many are called, but few are chosen."
    • Venus1485
      I see that 2.2 of 7.6 billion people in the world are classified as Christians. Do the math on that, and see that 71.05% are not Christians. Jenny's ideas are illogical and untrue, so who cares how many Christians she recognizes? The Bible is childish fantasy.
    • Vittorio 'Sam' Manunta-Lowell
      Let's see, ..... if a friend promises something for you, do you trust him? (That's a good explanation)
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Venus1485, it is official, there are 2.4 billion Christians in the world. Christians remain the largest religious group in the world, making up nearly a third 40% of Earth's 7.6 billion people. As for classification, it is what it is. That's why Catholics, Baptists and Pentecostals are the leading Christian denominations in the world.
  • No, 99.54% of the people of Japan where I was born do not believe in Jesus. 71% of the people of the world do not believe in him. There is no convincing evidence that such a man existed, but there is strong evidence that he did not exist.
    • we are dough 68
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      ReiSan, the world does not revolve on the small island of Japan. Get your facts straight. How many times do I have to ask if you can provide this evidence that Jesus never existed? Do share with everyone. We would like to know if there were a change of plans after the evidence of His existence was even confirmed by Richard Dawkins, a leading atheist from the atheist foundation.
    • ReiSan
      You shift the burden of proof. It is your task to prove Jesus existed. Richard Dawkins is wrong if he actually said Jesus existed. I doubt that he did.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      ReiSan, not exactly. This is only to prove that you are against Richard Dawkins who is an atheist spokesman: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhflPR-ck0M&t=93s Since you are closed-minded with Christians, then learn it from your master. *Facepalm*
    • Venus1485
      Appeal to authority is illogical. If Richard Dawkins actually said Jesus existed, he's wrong. Atheists are individuals. We don't need any spokesmen, and any man can be wrong. I've given strong arguments against Jesus' existence in some answers on this forum and others. Jenny is a barbaric person and a hypocrite who ignores some Bible rues that are inconvenient. I was a Christian most of my life, but I learned I had been wrong. When I was a Christian, I scolded such hypocrites as Jenny.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Venus 1485, quote: "Atheists are individuals. We don't need any spokesmen, and any man can be wrong." Yet, you have no evidence to disprove Richard Dawkins. Learn it from the pros. Quote: "When I was a Christian, I scolded such hypocrites as Jenny." Calling people names is mud throwing, There is nothing structural in that remark.
  • You betcha but more than believe. Knowing is better. I have been with Jesus but only once. Yogananda had many many conversations with Jesus. Jesus was the manifestation of the absolute truth. He demonstrated to us that We are not the physical body but spiritual beings.
    • ReiSan
      Spirits and gods are fantasy.
  • Yes,Jesus is the "MAN'.
  • It really isn't a belief in Jesus Christ but what He did for us. He gave us freedom, for those whom believe, from the old law. For without belief in Jesus Christ you are still under the old law that no person can live up to. Paul said in Romans 10:4, For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth. To fail to believe in Jesus Christ is to say His death on the cross was for nothing and that He was a lair. So yes, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt I do believe in Jesus Christ.
    • ReiSan
      Most of the world is not Christian. The Bible is merely fiction. His death is fantasy, as is his life.
    • Thinker
      The Bible is 66 books by 40 authors and we are only now learning it is an integrated message system from outside our time domain. These are the words of probably the most world renowned scientific Bible teacher Chuck Missler. khouse.org
    • Venus1485
      The Bible is full of nonsense. It's pitifully ignorant of science, has myriad dumb contradictions and has an absurd basic tale that makes God clumsy and stupid. Chuck Missler is nuts if he makes such ridiculous claims as you say,
  • Faith goes a long way!
    • ReiSan
      Faith has no evidence, so it is misplaced.
    • Vittorio 'Sam' Manunta-Lowell
      You sound just like the Apostle Thomas!
  • No, 99.54% of the people in Japan do not believe in Jesus Christ! There is no firm evidence that he ever lived.
    • Thinker
      Relsan, you have a lot to learn. someday you will bow before the Lord God and give account for yourself. Then what will you say?
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Thinker, ReiSan is a broken record, He or she repeats the same folly after evidence is given. Not only that, he or she claims to be an atheist, and then calls Richard Dawkins a liar lol, ReiSan is all confused.
    • Venus1485
      I can hardly believe how irrational Jenny and Thinker are. Thinker will bow before Zeus some day. Pascal's Wager is illogical, Thinker. No real evidence for God has been given by Jenny. Atheists don't have to agree with Richard Dawkins. We have no priests. Appeal to authority is illogical, so if Richard Dawkins utters nonsense, I call him down on it. Jenny is the real broken record. She neve has any evidence. Her arguments are all bad and often insulting. She disgraces her beliefs with such hypocrisy. Read the Bible about do unto others, bearing fale witness, etc.!!!
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Venus1485, you should be realistic. In the real world, nobody cares about Zeus. You can't back up anything you say with the Greek gods. I can back up my claims with the Bible. Quote: "Atheists don't have to agree with Richard Dawkins." Then you are stuck in your own little world, because I would rather get an opinion from the experts in Atheism. Therefore, you are all confused.
  • Jesus lives today and I am glad I asked Him in!
  • In the Bible it says every knee will bow. Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
    • Venus1485
      That's another lie in the Bible.
    • Rick
      OK. . . .
  • Yes, I believe Jesus brought a friend into my life who can now help me with a dropped class problem. He seems to be able to do a lot. It has something to do with that big red S on his chest. (Superman symbol)
  • To answer this question once again: absolutely!
    • Rick
      I do hope and pray that ReiSan will accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.
    • Rick
      You are right, but God can change them. -:)
  • NO, I don't think he ever existed. I was a Christian most of my life, but I read things that changed my mind. There's no real evidence he existed. No one at all mentions him when he was supposed to live. Every writer near him would mention such a man if he did exist. Many accounts of him are much later forged additions by Christian copyists. The Bible has many major contradictions about him and exhibits an evolution in the basic story of him. This is what we can expect when a fictional character is invented and many writers write as they like without consulting other writings. There was a similar situation about King Arthur and Robin Hood. Sir Thomas Malory took many tales of King Arthur and developed a consistent tale about him, but the Roman bishops who created the Bible under Constantine's orders were less skillful. They knw there are contradictions in the Bible and depended upon priests to excuse them.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Quote: "NO, I don't think he ever existed. I was a Christian most of my life, but I read things that changed my mind." You have no idea what exactly is a Christian. This is the typical atheist rant of claiming you were a Christian before. If you really were a Christian, you would know that the Bible is without a contradiction. Give me some passages were you see these so-called contradictions, and we'll go over them one by one.
    • Rick
      You can't lose what you did not have in the first place.
