I want proof that God is real...

Doubt. As a believer in Christ I wrestle with doubt from time to time. Honestly, I think it is a healthy process to reevaluate your belief system-to search for truth. Christians are often lumped into the stereotype of being narrow minded, brainwashed, ignorant and uneducated. Christianity is the only faith that is backed by archaeological, philosophical, historical and biological evidence. God has provided the evidence to quench our doubt.

The following statements describe one man. Who is it?

-"Those who hate me whithout cause are more numerous than the hairs of my head."
-"The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers conspire together against the Lord and His Anointed One"
-" Strike the shepard and the sheep will be scattered"
-"They peierced my hands and my feet."
-"My God my God, why have You forsaken Me?"
-"They gave me gall for my food, and for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink."
-"They divided my garmets among themselves, and they cast lots for my clothing."
-"He submitted Himself to death."
-"He bore the sin of many and interceded for the rebels."
-"He protects all his bones; not one of them is broken."
-"They made His grave with the wicked, and with a rich man at His death, although He had done no violence and had not spoken deceitfully."
-"He was oppressed and afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughter and like a sheep silent before her shearers, He did not open His mouth."
-"Yet He Himself bore our sicknesses, and He carried our pains; but we in turn regarded Him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted."

The following statements unmistakeably describe one man, Jesus Christ. However, these statements are found in the Old Testament which was completed 400yrs before Christ was born. No critic, no atheist or agnostic has ever claimed these prophecies were written after His birth. Their credibility is undeniable. You will find no predictive prophecies in any other religous writing: not Buddha, Confucious, Mohammed, Lao-Tse or Hinduism. Jesus Christ stands apart. The odds of just 10 prophecies becoming true is mathmatically impossible. The above statements represent a miracle defying impossibility. My doubt is quenched and my faith is strengthened.

  2. There is no proof how can a person believe in a book written by men for a king that's wants control of the Jews more people die in God's name because someone believes a fairly tale . Human's been on this planet for 7 million years sorry don't wash . If there is a god it could've done far better job.also bibles would not be needed all information would be imbedded in our brain
