Many atheists believe that argumentation can prove that God doesn’t exist. But if Naturalism is true, human reasoning ability is unreliable on a fundamental level and can’t prove anything, let alone theological or metaphysical claims. Hence, Naturalism is self-refuting, for it undermines any confidence we might have in our ability to defend it. If we are to trust our reasoning ability, it must be grounded in something other than random mutation and natural selection. Theism offers such a foundation.
Repent of your sins and believe on Adonai Jesus Christ, believe in your heart that He has died for sins and rose from the tomb on the third day and let the Holy Spirit within you, and you shall be saved.
Evidence for Jesus Christ’s existence, crucifixion, and disappearance from the grave (He rose from it):
The Lord Jesus Christ did exist, gathered disciples, and was crucified and went missing from the grave. To argue about wether He was taken from the grave or rose from it, is an argument a skeptic can make. Because well if you disregard the eye witness testimony of the disciples and there willingness to die for Christ, and humans won’t die for something they know is a lie, when Peter is pinned upside down to that cross, he could have said that it was a fake, but He didn’t because it wasn’t, what care would he have about death in this world if he knew for a fact he had assurance of a life in another, Jesus Christ did rise from the grave and is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Now the evidence for the Lord Jesus Christ’s existence really isn’t hard to find a multitude of non-Christian scholars and historians mention Him within 150 years after the time of His life. One such is Tacitus a Roman historian who reported on emperor nero’s decision to blame the Christians for the fire that had destroyed rome in 64 AD. Tacitus wrote:
“Nero fastened the guilt … on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of … Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome…”
In this Tacitus makes reference to not only Christians, but Christ calling Him Christus and confirming the Gospels going on to say that He suffered the extreme penalty (crucifixion) under the reign of Tiberius and by the sentence of Pontius Pilate, which like I said confirms the Gospels narrative.
Another important source of evidence about Jesus and early Christianity can be found in the letters of Pliny the Younger to Emperor Trajan. Pliny was the Roman governor of Bithynia in Asia Minor. In one of his letters, dated around A.D. 112, he asks Trajan’s advice about the appropriate way to conduct legal proceedings against those accused of being Christians. Pliny says that he needed to consult the emperor about this issue because a great multitude of every age, class, and sex stood accused of Christianity. At one point in his letter, Pliny relates some of the information he has learned about these Christians:
“They were in the habit of meeting on a certain fixed day before it was light, when they sang in alternate verses a hymn to Christ, as to a god, and bound themselves by a solemn oath, not to any wicked deeds, but never to commit any fraud, theft or adultery, never to falsify their word, nor deny a trust when they should be called upon to deliver it up; after which it was their custom to separate, and then reassemble to partake of food – but food of an ordinary and innocent kind.”
This passage provides a number of interesting insights into the beliefs and practices of early Christians. First, we see that Christians regularly met on a certain fixed day for worship. Second, their worship was directed to Christ, demonstrating that they firmly believed in His divinity. Furthermore, one scholar interprets Pliny’s statement that hymns were sung to Christ, “as to a god”, as a reference to the rather distinctive fact that, “unlike other gods who were worshipped, Christ was a person who had lived on earth.” If this interpretation is correct, Pliny understood that Christians were worshipping an actual historical person as God! Of course, this agrees perfectly with the New Testament doctrine that Jesus was both God and man.
You may have heard of the scholar Flavius Josephus who mentioned James as being the brother of the Lord Jesus Christ, which matches what Paul said calling James “The Lord’s brother” and there is another document that Josephus may have written which goes:
“About this time there lived Jesus, a wise man, if indeed one ought to call him a man. For he … wrought surprising feats… He was the Christ. When Pilate …condemned him to be crucified, those who had . . . come to love him did not give up their affection for him. On the third day he appeared … restored to life… And the tribe of Christians … has … not disappeared.”
Now it’s up to debate wether this is the entirely original document of what Josephus wrote, or if a Christian had edited it. But regardless he wrote about the Lord Jesus Christ. Wether it was negative or positive like the possible document is. Anyways there are many other statements, documents, letters, and writings of all sorts from the ancient world talking about the Lord Jesus Christ and there is not one question if He was a real person or if He was crucified and went missing from the grave. That is clear as day, He is a real person, was crucified, and went missing from the grave. And He did rise from the grave. And for more evidence of the Lord Jesus Christ, there’s the Bible and you see there is no evidence the Bible is corrupted, a lie, created by the Roman government, folktale. It is the recount of the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, now wether you want to believe it is up to you. And what profit was there in spreading Christianity, All the early Christian suffered persecution, beatings, and were killed. Another Scholar reported that James the Lord’s Brother was thrown off a building and then stoned to death for spreading the Gospel in Jerusalem. These people went to great lengths even giving their own lives for Adonai Jesus the Christ.
3:50 LOOOOL NOOOOO
The main reason for not being convinced of atheism is the claim that a being that evolved in environmental conditions with an unnatural interference atmosphere became, by chance, able to absorb and analyze all aspects of the universe. Who told you that your five senses and your mind have that ability. Perhaps there are other senses that will develop according to the theory and enable us to see other dimensions. What is the reason for claiming that our brains are capable of accidentally understanding and analyzing everything? You do not believe in religions, so why do you think that you are the smartest and most capable being in existence? There may be other beings with greater abilities that your five limited senses cannot see. Maybe we need 20 senses to say we can detect everything, not just 5, and maybe there are creatures that can. How do you know?
Man was still searching himself
I’d like to have a transcript of this ! It’s excellent and requires close scrutiny.
We rely on reason, because this is the best we have got. That’s why. Not because there is or there isn’t a God. What a useless video, I wasted 12 minutes of my life and most probably killed some REAL neurons, which is much more than God will ever be - yeah, real. Dude, go back to biology classes.
Matt.24: 14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
This is not only just absolutely brilliant, but also very funny!!!
Thank you, Dave!
Can’t believe I missed this video on your channel up to now.
DW has only come down on the side of deism, not theism.
It was “Gawd” that threw that apple at the “cave man”!
David wood is still a very Handsome and Genius man ,even the 7 century caravan robber, the mutha lover became his follower and never write the book of holy holes:grinning:
can you support the claim that the natural brain can not reason? The fact that our brains operate in a cause and affect naturre doesnt negate theirm ability to reason at all.
Your entiure argument is based on that non-sequiter.
In arguing for anything you have already come down the path of theism. That’s it.
Maybe your just lazy and don’t want to learn anything!
You are using reason to tell us you can’t trust reason. This whole video is ridiculous. Belief in god also comes from naturalistic “reason”, just without any evidence. And don’t get me started on all the God is good, Flat Earth, Virgin Birth, Stop the Sun, Part the Red Sea, etc. nonsense. You’d need many more strawmen for that.
Long live Thag. And Nabeel.
