So what does all this mean?
Answering the question of whether Jesus rose from the dead or not is
more than an intellectual exercise. If the resurrection is false, it
doesn't matter anyway. But if it did occur, it leads to the most
important decision you will ever make, not only for now, but for your
Many people have trouble accepting that God exists or that Jesus is who
he said he was. If you find yourself here, I recommend that you pray to

Being a Christian is not following a system of rules, but rather having
a relationship with the God who knows and loves you completely.
Becoming a Christian is easy. You simply acknowledge to God that you
have committed acts that are not consistent with His Holiness. You
accept Jesus' death as payment for your wrong acts so that you can be
reconciled with him. You acknowledge that Jesus was resurrected as
proof that his death was sufficient payment, and you invite Jesus/God
to become Lord of your life. When you pray this, the Holy Spirit/God
will come to live within you and help you to follow Him.
you have sincerely prayed this prayer, you belong to God forever. Start
reading the Bible, beginning with the gospel of John (the 4th book of
the New Testament). Tell someone about your decision, and find a
Bible-believing church or Messianic synagogue.
becoming a Christian, continue to focus on God: learning and growing in
His ways. You won't live a perfect life, but even so you will no longer
persistently do wrong things. Who you are in this life will change, for
the better, and you will know for sure that you will be with God in
heaven in the next life.
