can claim that he is perfect and be totally free from evil. If God were
to destroy all the evil in the world, would any human being stay? C.S.
Lewis supposed that 95% of all sufferings
in the world can be related back to evil acts of the people.

if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone

He was a 13-century
theologian who tried to prove Gods existence. He found five ways:
Argument of movement
- Nothing can move out of itself
- the first object that ever moved needed somebody to make it move
- this first mover is the Mover, called God
Cause of its existence
- Existing objects are caused (made) by other things
- Nothing can create itself or make itself
- There must be a first cause which cannot be caused by itself, we call
Coincidental and necessary things
- A ‘coincidental’ thing cannot exist unless a necessary
thing causes its existence
- At the bottom line, the existence of ‘coincidental’ things
needed a Being. This Being must exist as a cause for the existence of
- that necessary Being is God
Argument about perfection
- Of two statues anybody can say the one is more beautiful than the
- The one has a higher degree of beauty than the other one
- For every quality (goodness, beauty, knowledge) a perfect standard
- These perfections are enclosed in God
- Our mind tells us that the galaxy must have been designed by a designer
- All physic laws and the order in nature are so perfectly generated;
the designer therefore must be supernatural
- All physic laws, the order in nature and the life are designed and
ordained by God, the intelligent Designer
Jesus more than just a good teacher?
was the best manager of all times, a Times poll
Even non Christians agree that:
- Jesus has influnced the thinking, the music and the arts for the past
2000 years more than anybody else
- He can be hold accountable for the values, norms and the juridical
and education system as known today in the West
Jesus contended that:
- He would give His life as ransom for many
- He would rise from the dead
- He would judge people on Judgment Day
He wasn’t a fool:
- Would you be willing to be killed in a horrible way, even when you
knew you were pretending?
- Would a mental ill person or emotionally distorted person be able
to teach such incredible things?
- Would a lunatic or other mental ill person be able to heal people
of demonic possession and perform miracles?
- Would a scatterbrain be able to preach logic and awesome sermons?
What Jesus says about Himself:
- Jesus claims He is able to forgive sins (Matthew 9:6)
- Jesus claims He is able to reveal God the Father to the people
- Jesus claims He is able to give rest to people who come to Him
- Jesus claims He is the Light of the world (John 8:12)
- Jesus claims He is able to give people eternal life (John 4:14)
- Jesus claims that He already existed before Abraham (John 8:58)
- Jesus says He is God (John 5:17-24, John 10:30)
Quotes of famous people
- Martin Luther: ‘There was no difference between Him and
other people, except that He was God and sinless’.
- Spinoza: ‘Jesus Christ was the temple; in Him God has most
fully revealed Himself’.
- W.E.H. Lecky, historian and MP, ‘Christ has such a profound
influence that one can contend that a simple account of three short
years of activity has done more than ever to renew and soften mankind
than all the philosophical discourses and moral incentives altogether’.
- J.J. Rousseau, philosopher and non-believer : ‘If the life
and death of Socrates was one of a sage, then the life and death of
Jesus was one of a God’.
- 'It would need a Jesus to invent a Jesus' (Anonymous).
anybody still believe in the devil?
like an argument to dodge your responsibilities. However, the Bible
clearly demonstrates the existence of demonic powers or evil spirits.
The Hebrew word ‘satan’ means ‘adversary’ and
this word occurs 36 times. The Greek word ‘diabolos’ means
‘persecutor or slanderer’ and this word occurs 33 times.
G. Brown: ‘The existence of the devil is so clearly taught in
the Bible, hence, doubting its existence would be akin to doubting
the Bible itself’.
once stated: ’Satan really wants us to believe that he is not

sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this

Some people think God will accept them because of their

things people do: murders, abuse, rape (also in the porn industry),
greed, tyranny, injustice, slander and gossip, etc… how about

(or: shameful acts)?
Paul, one of the
founders of the Church of Jesus, had a powerful maxim:
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth
the churches full of hypocrites?
Gandhi once said: ‘You Christians ought to live like Jesus Christ.
You ought to practice your faith and not falsify nor weaken it. You
ought to embody love, as love is the center and the soul of the Christian
is a sinner who has received forgiveness for the sins and is cleaned
from sin by the power of the Gospel. The death and resurrection of Jesus
Christ enables this forgiveness, once and now.
"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive
ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is
faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar,
and his word is not in us."
(1st John 1:8-10)
can call himself a Christian, but his testimony as a Christian contradicts
with the way he/she actually is living.
"And when thou prayest, thou shalt
not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the
synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen
of men..." (Matthew 6:5)
The Christian faith is based on observable facts
> Strong evidence is given for the resurrection
of Jesus Christ
> Christians are sensible people; they
are to properly weigh the cases
Christians didn’t approach sceptics with a message like ‘aw,
just believe it man!’ They pointed out that they had to investigate
the factual and historic basis of the Christian faith. The Berean people
were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the
word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily,
whether those things were so". (Acts 17:11)
Being a Christian
means putting your faith in Jesus Christ. This faith is based on historically
knowable facts and not on false expectations.
faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not
seen". (Hebrews 11:1)
and God cannot go together
it go together? If you realize that God is holy and pure, would He accept
sin? Gods standard is perfection. No man can say that he didn’t
sin. Jesus knew this. He let Him crucified so as to take the penalty
for the sin away from you; the wages of sin is death.

Pray this to God

I come to You. I acknowledge that I have sinned and that I have wandered

a miracle in my life. From now on I want to do Your will. I thank You
for being my Savior. I pray all this in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.”

the good Shepherd and He choose you to come into His flock. It is only
in His flock where every sheep can be taken care for.
