Amazing What People Believe

Situation 1: The Bible is comprised of 66 books that span a time period of over a thousand years, several languages, authors from various walks of life (including kings, fisherman and shepherds), yet it speaks with unity on all sorts of subject, including the most controversial. Just try to do that with ten of your own friends or co-workers!

Hundreds of prophesies regarding the life, death and resurrection of Jesus have been fulfilled, and some of those prophesies were made a thousand years ahead of time.

Archaeologists have verified the Bible, and a leading archaeologist said that no archaeological find ever contradicted the Bible. Also, the New Testament was written by eye-witnesses of the events related, which would mean that contemporaries could have easily quelled the excitement by their own eye-witness accounts to the contrary.

Response to Situation 1: "There is no evidence to even believe that God exists, and I certainly cannot believe that there is any validity to the Bible."

Situation 2: A man or woman claims to have been contacted by aliens from outer space. They have a message of peace for mankind, and deliver their message telepathically through their chosen vessel, who writes a best-selling book and makes money, even though the only evidence anyone has for the existence or message of these wonderful space beings is the word of the author.

Response to Situation 2: "I believe! Sign me up!"
