Who needs Jesus?

The answer to that all depends on the evidence. You see, if what Jesus taught about Himself, about life, death, sin, heaven, hell, etc. is wrong, then Christianity is perhaps worse than worthless. If Jesus did not rise from the dead and if He is not in fact God, as He claimed to be, then atheists are correct in stating that Christianity is a very dangerous idea.

However, if, as I believe the evidence shows, Jesus was and is exactly who He claimed to be, then there is not a book, an idea, a concept, a discovery, or any way of being that is, nor ever will be as important to you and to your life as is Christianity. If true, Jesus and what you do with Him marks the difference between incomparable good or disaster beyond imagination.

Unlike every other religion on earth, and unlike every "teacher" who has come and gone, Jesus is not “sort of important” or, “He might be important for you but not for me.” Jesus is either of utmost importance for every individual on this planet or Christianity is worse than garbage.

Discovering the truth about Jesus and His resurrection from the dead is not something that you want to leave up to what you’ve heard from someone else. You need to go to the source. You need to find the best evidence.

You need to make a decision.
