    The Jewish belief of bodily resurrection was that God would raise everybody at the end of time (or the end times). The apostles held this belief up until the resurrection. It was one of the clear changes in their religious beliefs that show something amazing happened.

    One of these resurrection stories from paganism involves a god masturbating in the woods and his "seed" becoming a tree. That is purported by some to be one story from which the resurrection was taken. I can't recall which god but it is one of the resurrection stories.

    Oh, and I haven't read Wright's book.

    After a few people mentioned William Lane Craig I've been checking him out and came across this.

    Wicked he addresses a few of the things you mentioned. i.e. Jesus by the Romans being crucified for being a political rebel.

    I have no faith in humanity as a whole. We are inherently greedy and self serving. I have zero doubts religion has been, continues to be, and will forever be used as a Tool to subjugate huge portions of society for small numbers of people to profit off.

    You know what most people don't realize, the biggest critic of those type of people? Jesus.

    Sounds like politics.

    This is no longer an unpopular opinion

    So, I was wondering what peoples doubts are about religion, specifically Christianity? Do you kinda believe, do you think it's impossible or probable, do you understand it, or never investigated it etc.
    i dont have time to say everything i want to but i just want to say that this is a great topic for discussion, maybe the best ive seen in a while. i think more people in our society should have this talk.

    I enjoy it. The thing I've picked up most over the past year or so studying and reading is how philosophically sound a rational the reason for God are. A FAR cry from what I used to think.

    No doubts as time has past in reference to Christianity. I do want to see to make this God's nation, a nation where Jesus Christ is at the center of government and society. The Constitution would seemingly have to be amended for this as this will be the only faith as all other faiths worship a false idol according to the Bible which is truth.
