The prompt is simple:
What reason is there to believe in the authenticity of the Bible, its message, and/or Christianity?You can submit any claim that you like; whatever you find convincing. It cannot be an argument "against atheism" as that bears no weight on the validity of Christianity -- atheism is simply the lack of belief. I am asking for any reason or evidence to warrant a belief.
Some reasons or evidence that qualify for submission could include historicity of Jesus, authenticity of the Bible, historical arguments for the Bible, revelations, anecdotes, empirical evidence, studies, etc. You should keep in mind that these aren't necessary credible, but examples that go towards reasons or evidence for Christianity.
Some reasons or evidence that do not qualify for submission include arguments for the existence of a Deistic God (one who created the universe and left it alone) as it does not go towards Christianity, but rather Deism. Arguments such as "you need to accept Jesus to wash your sins away" or anything along that line -- I want arguments for Jesus and the Bible, not arguments from Jesus and the Bible.
Keep in mind that I will consider how your reasons and evidence apply to both Christianity and other religions. I want to be convinced of Christianity, not of Deism or evidence that can be used for any religion.
Those are the ground rules. I look forward to your submissions.
