11 Reasons Why It's Logical to Believe the Real Jesus Rose from the Dead.
by Scott Cherry—
In the 1st century the Christian faith mushroomed throughout the Roman Empire despite waves of persecution against Christians. Unlike Islam, it spread without military force or any sort of violence perpetrated by Christians for three whole centuries. It was literally unstoppable, but why?! Because it was credible, and thousands of average people believed it even though they had nothing to gain and everything to lose during those three centuries. There is no other logical way to explain the growth of Christianity but that Jesus rose from the dead and appeared to the disciples and "more than 500 brethren at one time". (1 Cor. 15)
If Jesus was replaced, then WHO rose from the dead?

In this article I will talk about a famous event of history without naming the person to whom it is attributed. At least for a while. The event is a resurrection, or THE Resurrection. In theory, a resurrection is when a dead person comes back to life. THE Resurrection is when a particular dead person was purported to have come back to life. But who? Was it the Buddha? Was it Muhammad? How about Achilles? Could it be Osiris? Abraham Lincoln? Or maybe Superman?

"He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” Bible, Gospel of Luke 1:32-33, New Testament
This announcement by the angel Gabriel to Mary is actually a prophecy about Jesus who would be born to a virgin woman. Who actually called him the Son of the Most High? Answer: demons, disciples, and even Jesus himself.

Why do you believe God loves you? Why should anyone?
by Simon Cox
During this third week of Advent, as Christmas Day is approaching, we celebrate the love that God has so generously given us. Most people (atheists excluded perhaps) seem to agree with the notion that God loves everyone. It’s a simple idea that reflexively rings true. Some people might agree at first but become more hesitant when the question is personalized then asking, “Do you believe that God loves YOU?” To some it might be a strange thought imagining the Creator of the Universe singling you out of a crowd, pointing his finger with a smile and saying, “I love YOU!” You might be uncomfortable believing that the one true God loves you despite the bad things (sins) that you know you have done.
