Why Should I Believe in Christ?

“Christ said, I am the way and the truth and the life.”  John 14:6 (NIV)

Are you skeptical about Christ? Have you wondered: Is Christ really the Son of God as He claimed to be? Is He the Saviour of the world?

There are several reasons why you should believe in Christ, but the best argument for Christ is Christ Himself. “Christ authenticates Himself” Bishop Clark. You can believe in Christ because He’s unlike any other man. Arthur T. Pierson in Many Infallible Proofs says, “He (Christ) stands absolutely alone in history; in teaching, in example, in character, an exception, a marvel, and He is Himself the evidence of Christianity.”

This is evidence that demands a verdict: Christ was born as no other man was ever born. He spoke as no other man has ever spoken. He performed miracles that no other man has ever performed. He loved as no other man has ever loved. He lived as no other man has ever lived. He died as no other man has ever died. He conquered death like no other man has ever done. And He changed the world as no other man could ever do.

In fact it’s futile to try comparing Christ with even the greatest of saints and sages who have ever lived. Even the skeptic, Jean Jacques Rousseau, was compelled to remark, “If Socrates lived and died like a sage, Jesus lived and died like a god.” Yes, Christ authenticates Himself. Any impartial investigation of Christ can only arrive at the conclusion that He is whom He says He is: the Son of God and Saviour of the world.
