    religion in a general sense

    religion in a genera sense, makes no sense. obviously. do you figure that religion gives a sense of purpose in life? i feel that not believing in a religion has set a full window of chances to experience certain things.

    Disruption and corruption are caused by the humans, not the religion.

    The religion was caused by humans, though. So in the end, yes and yes.

    I am a Christian and have been Christian for 6 Years because I am only 13. I still put all my faith in Jesus.
    REASONS:
    Though there are other religions that have prophecies in them, none are 100% accurate as is the Bible, and none of them point to someone like Jesus who made incredible claims and performed incredible deeds. The Old Testament was written hundreds of years before Jesus was born, yet the Old Testament prophesied many things about Jesus. This is undoubtedly evidence of divine influence upon the Bible.
    Please consider some of the many prophecies of Jesus in the following chart:

    Prophecy Old Testament Prophecy New Testament Fulfillment
    Born of a virgin Isaiah 7:14 Matt. 1:18,25
    Born at Bethlehem Micah 5:2 Matt. 2:1
    He would be preceded by a Messenger Isaiah 40:3 Matt. 3:1-2
    Rejected by His own people Isaiah 53:3 John 7:5; 7:48
    Betrayed by a close friend Psalm 41:9 John 13:26-30
    His side pierced Zech. 12:10 John 19:34
    Crucifixion Psalm 22:1,
    Psalm 22:11-18 Luke 23:33;
    John 19:23-24
    Resurrection of Christ Psalm 16:10 Acts 13:34-37
    Fulfillment of prophecy can have different explanations. Some state that the New Testament was written and altered to make it look like Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophecy (but there is no evidence of that). Others state that the prophecies are so vague that they do not count (but many of the prophecies are not vague at all). Of course, it is possible that God inspired the writers; and Jesus, who is God in flesh, fulfilled these prophecies as a further demonstration of the validity of Christianity.

    You have no proof that any of this took place.
    All you have is some old ass literature.

    Perhaps jesus read the old testament and decided he'd play a prank on Jerusalem by fulfilling its predictions

    Still how do you know any of it actually took place?
