Jesus said to his disciples: "Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. Luke 17:1-2
"Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist--denying the Father and the Son."
"You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me." John 20:29
"Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven" Matthew 18:3.
They first believe he is the messiah, before they check the claims. Thus they are bias in their judgment
"He that answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame unto him" Proverbs 18:3
"Do not accept a bribe (Heaven), for a bribe blinds those who see."
Since Christianity is the only religion that is faith based & doesn't require anything other than believing & trying to treat others well, why not go for it? Jesus' life on earth was like no other person or entity that was total service, sacrifice & a model for the rest of humanity to follow. If there was any more perfect example to follow, it/they haven't shown up yet.
During & b4 Jesus' time on earth, there was no hint in history of what a resurrection was. They had examples of people that lived in some sort of afterlife in a lower earth & some sort of becoming something other than a true living human, but never a rise from death & subsequent 40 days of contact with humans after His death. Then Jesus' ascension into heaven after those 40 days indicated He was the Christ. Which He was given the name which translated into the Anointed One, which in turn goes back to the Messiah right?
& yes, we might as well dismiss the bible as a reliable source of fact cuz many do, but why? Is it cuz it was found to have the most copies (over 200) within the 1st 2 centuries, that has proven to be almost word for word today with the ancient manuscripts? Nah, just cuz there are many more copies of the bible during this time period than any other historical written records means nothing right? & even secular authors of that time period have written of Jesus & His following shouldn't sway anyone to believe He existed either huh? It's amazing that there is so much proof of Jesus, and just cuz people throughout history don't want others to believe, they convince people that all this proof is not worth anything. Sheeple follow those that talk the loudest many times don't they, even when their message is false. Such a shame.
