JESUS: Another Scam?

:
Did Jesus left us with any evidence that He truly came to this earth, died on the cross, resurrected and ascended? Or were we just left with a story that cannot be proven? The evidence of the existence of Aristotle and so many other Greek philosophers are so profound! If this is true about men who were with human wisdom but truly lacked expression in the display of the supernatural, whose wisdom ended with them in the grave were they were buried, who in spite impeccable knowledge had no ability to resurrect like Jesus claimed He would. They never opined they had any resurrection power, those who did were proven wrong and in them the obvious was made known, that no human knowledge crosses the realm of this earth! If anything Jesus said would be taken serious, then He claimed superiority over everything that had come before Him. Not just did He claimed to have overseen the making of Abraham, not just that He claimed to have been right there with the supposed creator of the heavens and the earth; that was enough to sound high, enough to nurture anger in the hearts of people who believed there is no God, in the hearts of people who believed there is God who no eyes has seen and in the eyes of people who believed there are many gods if there should be anything like that. The claims of Jesus only made Him friends with people who believed nothing at all but were open, people who were feeble, societal failures and uneducated fellows. In Jesus they seemed to see those claims as true, they followed and witnessed Him perform what only the hands of God would do. Yes, they saw something that made them stick to Him. They saw love that the Greeks were unable to explain! The love they witnessed in Jesus lacked covering within the walls of Greek-Academics, it was way beyond them! How would an adulterous woman that the law made demand on her life feel about Jesus after His love prevailed over the pangs of death. She must have felt like one who resurrected from the death because she saw death moments ago.

Well, it isn’t enough to say because Jesus owns massive following to this day, He is real. There has been myths that owns massive following, there are dead cultures many still hold on to and so large audience isn’t enough but it is something to reckon. It isn’t enough to say because people believe Jesus died for their sins, He is real. What if it was just another story, hyped by some people who wanted to take hold of this world with religion? Were Christians not sacked from the Jewish Synagogues as another cult among other cults that even preceded the coming of Jesus? Oh well, even the Jewish religion which left behind lots of historic evidence believed a lunatic and scammer named “Yeshua” transliterated this day as Jesus came! The Jews believed they were instrumental to his death and that maybe His body was stolen by His disciples. At least, they admit Jesus came. Well, if we would believe the report of the Jews, we would also believe there is God and if we must believe there is God, then maybe we also have to start considering other things. Unless you are of the opinion there is no God anyway. But, how can the world have adopted such a beautiful design, perfect timing and extremely mathematically correct movements that doesn’t go out of order? How can these things have happened without a designer? How can man and woman have existed side by side, showcasing a perfect plan of someone somewhere to fill this earth with intelligent beings who have the touch of God in them?

In a bid not to try putting up a very perfect and analytical debate that has high sounding points and logical analysis, I still think Jesus left us with an evidence. Not just an evidence of an existence of God, the Jews have enough evidence of God, it is written all over history and even more in the physical evidences we’d have supposed others left behind more than Jesus did. Jesus didn’t come building monuments, Jesus only came raising people. There may not have been so much convincing footprints left behind by Jesus more than that of Aristotle and other great Greeks but Jesus left us with an evidence greater, mightier and stronger than anything else anyone had left behind. Why would there be so much material evidence by the way when Jesus didn’t end in death? Yes, He triumphed over death! But any way, there is a powerful evidence. What is that evidence?
:
Permit me to say, Jesus never wanted people to believe He existed by the reason of some grave yards, some cross, shroud of Turim, holy grail and lots of other material evidences. Jesus never even asked us to go about trying to convince people with left behind materials. Jesus died, yes He did but He didn’t remain dead! He resurrected and ascended into the heavens. Sounds like a fairy tale right? Oh yes, and that story isn’t enough evidence anyway because there are lots of stories about lots of other people too.
:
Unlike Aristotle and others whose memories were preserved in arts, Jesus didn’t just left us with memories of Him, He didn’t just left us with words and quotes, He left us with His Spirit and His power! He made His place inside of each and every one of us, gave everyone who believes in Him His own mark and sealed it by His own Spirit! He didn’t sent us to go about proving with materials that He came on this earth, died for our sins, resurrected on our behalf and ascended as us, presenting us in Himself to the father of all Spirits. With power to heal the sick, raise the dead and perform all manner of miracles, He sent us to make people know Him. With those signs they will believe. However, Jesus gave us something more than those signs, He also made it clear that agents of evil Spirits could also take mastery of spiritual performances. He gave us His word, the gospel! This gospel is God’s power unto salvation. In the preaching and teaching of the Gospel, God’s power is displayed. There is one more thing Jesus did and that is the most powerful evidence He left us with.
:
Jesus shed in our hearts the exact God kind of love. When we love like Jesus, the world stops questioning the existence of Jesus, they don’t just stop questioning, they start believing and they also start experiencing that love manifest through them. Now you see, we may have in our abundance the material evidences of the existence of the big names but there is one clear thing, only the grave of Jesus is empty and only His name is powerful, that name has He given us to operate in. Jesus isn’t another scam after all. Permit me to drop these verse
:
“Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and good news is preached to the poor.” Matthew 11:4b-5
:
“The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”” Psalm 14:1
:
“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God’s love was revealed among us: God sent His one and only Son into the world, so that we might live through Him. And love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God remains in us, and His love is perfected in us. By this we know that we remain in Him, and He in us: He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent His Son to be the Savior of the world.” 1 John 4:8-13
