Why do you believe? Why are you a Christian? Why do you believe Jesus is the son of God?
AndrewKim

Con

Many individuals around the world believe in a religion simply because they were either grown up in that religion or have parents of other family members that are part of that religion. You question stated why do I believe? First off, that belongs in the forums and not a debate website. Second of all, I believe because I was brought up believing by my parents. I am a Christian, with Christian parents. I understand that bias may underlay that. But, I have learned about other religions and have had a sample taste to know what I truly believe in. If my parents were any other religion I would stay Christian because that is what I believe and nothing else.

I'm busy until the weekend. However, I will consider taking this debate if you clarify what the debate is about. Is it me proving the existence of god or something else?

This isn't a debate. Take it to the forums, or change it to something like "Is Christianity true?" or "Is God real?"
