Ten Reason why you should be a Christian.

TOP 10 REASONS TO BELIEVE IN
THE CHRISTIAN FAITH
Then one in the council stood
up, a Pharisee named Gamaliel,
a teacher of the law held in
respect by all the people …And
he said to them: “Men of
Israel…I say to you, keep away
from these men and let them
alone; for if this plan or this
work is of men, it will come to
nothing; but if it is of God, you
cannot overthrow it—lest you
even be found to fight against
God.” – Acts 5:34-39

1. The Credibility of its Founder:
Peter spoke for Jesus’ closest
followers when he said, “Lord, to
whom shall we go? You have the
words of eternal life. We believe
and know that You are the Holy
One of God.” (John 6:68-69)
2. Reliability of its Book: The
integrity of this historical and
geographical record is supported
by archaeology. The Bible
continues to speak not only with
spiritual power but also with
convincing prophetic accuracy.
3. Explanations for Life: It is the
Christian faith that reflects a
caring attention to detail so
evident in the species and
ecosystems of the natural world.
It is Christ who clothed Himself
in our humanity to feel what we
feel and then to suffer and die in
our place.
4. Its Continuity with the Past:
The Christian faith offers
continuity with our deepest
ancestral roots. Those who trust
Christ are accepting the same
Creator and Lord worshiped by
Adam, Abraham, and Solomon.
5. Its Foundational Claim: The
first Christians were witnesses.
They risked their lives to tell the
World that with their own eyes
they had seen an innocent man
die and then miraculously walk
among them three days later.
6. Its Power to Change Lives:
Not only were the first disciples
dramatically changed, but so
were their worst enemies. Paul
was transformed from a killer of
Christians into one of their chief
advocates (Galatians 1:11-24).
7. Its Analysis of Human Nature:
The Bible says that society’s real
problems are problems of the
heart. In an age of information
and technology, failures of
character have scandalized
institutions of the family,
religion, and the arts.
8. Its View of Human
Achievement: Generation after
generation has hoped for the
best. We have conceived
technologies that will deliver us
from the oppressive slavery of
work. Yet we are as close as
ever to what the New Testament
describes as the end times.
(Matthew 24:5-31)
9. Its Impact on Society: From
rooftops to necklaces to
earrings, we see the sign of the
cross, bearing visible witness to
Christ’s death. Social relief
agencies have been fuelled by
the direct or residual values of
The Bible.
10. Its Offer of Salvation: No
other faith offers everlasting life
as a gift to those who trust the
One who has overcome death
for them. No other system offers
assurance of forgiveness and
adoption into the family of God.
