I've been trying to get off this mailing list for a few months now and
don't even know how I got on it. I'm a campus minister at a university
and was deleting the 150 or so messages (about viruses, memes,etc.) when
I came across your post. I read it and felt I must respond.

I, being a Christian, have heard about every excuse possible and every
intellectual arguement out there concerning the disbelief of the
Christian faith; and I say faith because Christianity, at its core, is a
faith and relationship and NOT a religion. Everyone is religious, about
something in their life, but few have a relationship with the One True
Living God, through Jesus Christ His only Son.

Why do millions believe? Because they have had a personal encounter, not
a intellectual conversion. Many things about Christianity seem illogical
on the surface; but after much study, it becomes the only logical choice
(including scientifically, mathmatically, and many other fields of study).

I was a drug and alcohol user, and someone who was addicted to lust,
until I met the person of Jesus Christ. He radically changed my life. I
couldn't have done it on my own. Look at these statistics:

1/2 of all marriages end in divorce
the odds change to 1 in 10 if you get married in a church
they go to 1 in 100 if you attend church regularly
they go to 1 in 1000 if you follow Biblical principles in your marriage

the secular drug rehabilitation success rate is 27%
the Christian drug rehabilitation success rate is 86%

God is real!
He sent His Son!
Jesus died and rose again!
And He is coming again!

I am just one of many who he rescued....

In His grip,
