You don't need to have a PhD
before you can settle
life's most important questions.
Like an ordinary jury member you can
simply weigh the evidence and come up
with a verdict. Consider then:
EVIDENCES THAT GOD EXISTS
• The evidence points to a creator. Since whatever begins to exist has a cause – and the universe (space, time and
matter) began to exist – the universe must therefore have had a timeless cause.
• The evidence points to a designer. Since every design has a designer – and both life and the universe exhibit staggeringly intricate and often irreducibly complex design - life and the universe must have had a designer.
• The evidence points to a source of objective moral values. Every law has a lawgiver - and there is a universal moral law (e.g. it is always wrong, for all people in all places, to torture babies) -there must therefore be an absolute moral lawgiver.
• The evidence points to the fact that this uncaused, intelligent creator, designer and moral lawgiver, has revealed Himself in the miracle of the Bible and in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth.
• You can personally experience this God. This statement is not an argument; it is a claim that God exists and can be experienced by sincere seekers wholly apart from arguments.
EVIDENCES THAT THE BIBLE
IS THE WORD OF GOD
• It has survived centuries of ridicule, opposition and government bans, being the world's best selling book, with over 8 billion copies printed in more than 2,000 languages.
• It is united in its content, despite being written by 40 different men over a period of 1,600 years.
• It is 100% scientifically accurate, and is the only ancient book to state that the world is round and hangs on nothing (Isaiah 40:22; Job 26:7).
• It is 100% medically accurate and is the oldest book to advocate quarantine (Leviticus 13:45-46).
• It has more ancient manuscripts to authenticate it than any other 10 pieces of ancient literature combined such as Homer's Iliad and Caesar's Gallic Wars.
• Its historical record has never been contradicted by any archeological dig.
• It has transformed millions of lives and altered the destiny of nations.
• Hundreds of its prophecies and predictions have already come true with many more still to be fulfilled.
EVIDENCE THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD
He changed the course of history despite only living
33 years on earth, never receiving a formal education and living in poverty and obscurity for most of His life.
He never wrote a book, yet His life has inspired more books than any other man. He never wrote a song, yet He has furnished the theme for more songs than all the
many students. He never marshalled an army or fought a songwriters combined. He never founded a college, but all the schools put together cannot boast of having as many students. He never marshalled an army or foughta war, yet no leader ever had more rebels surrender to Him without a shot fired. He never practised psychiatry, yet He has healed more broken hearts than all the doctors far and near, without ever charging a fee.
JESUS CHRIST CLAIMED TO BE THE SON OF GOD This leaves us with a stark choice:
HE WAS LYING
HE WAS TELLING THE TRUTH
HE DIDN'T KNOW
HE WAS LYING
HE WAS LYING
1. HE WAS A LUNATIC
2. HE WAS A LIAR
3. HE IS LORD
Do what a jury member does; make a decision! The Son of God has died to save you from your sins and has risen from the dead. It's time to stop using so alled 'intellectual problems'as a smokescreen for your unbelief and unwillingness to repent, and turn to Christ as your Lord and Saviour without further delay. The Bible savs:
"God now commands all men everywhere to repent"
