    I am a 24-year-old muslim, a young friend of mine who found your forum while researching Christianity. I was a topic in the forum recently. I have some questions? I was very interested in Christianity, I am very peaceful. Is there any historical and other data to prove that Christianity is true for me? Why should I abandon my religion as a Muslim and convert to this religion? I want you to help me on such matters.❤️

    I usually use just use google...?

    Things like, "Historical and/or Archaeological evidence for either the Bible and/or Christianity and/or the Scriptures and/or Jesus Christ", etc...

    And mixing those up accordingly, etc...

    Others on here might be able to help you out a little bit more here in a bit though, OK, so just wait for that or them also, OK...

    Good journeys in your searching...

    God Bless!

    Hi @Goksel Kayrak

    There is plenty of evidence out there. Ultimately it will be supporting evidence for the Bible and its vlaims, but the final step of interpretation and acceptance of that data is down to you. There isn't one piece that will convince you if you don't want to be convinced - if that makes sense.

    To save boring you, may I flip the question back? What supporting data would you like to see or of what Biblical claim?

    Love & Shalom

    Hello, Goksel. The answer to your question comes down to which, if any, religion is true (as opposed to whether or not it is attractive for one reason or another).

    Islam teaches that an Arab man, a prophet, taught correctly about God, whereas Christianity teaches that God Himself became Man in order to do for us what we fallible beings cannot do for ourselves.

    As a result, Islam teaches that some of us will be saved in eternity...if they obey. Christianity teaches that none of us is capable of being all that God considers right and good, throughout our lives, never faltering. Yet He will save those who try but also cast themselves upon his mercy, acknowledging Him as the one true god.

    Christianity, then, is the religion that sees God as ultimately good and powerful for doing this; Islam considers Allah to be all-powerful but thinks of his power and justice in basically the same way as all the pagan religions do--follow the rules and live; fail at it and God discards you.

    I would also strongly encourage you also, to just simply read the Bible for yourself also, etc, and try to dive deep into it/that, etc, especially the New Testament, etc, and just see and compare it with what you may already know is right and good and just and holy and true on the inside of you as well, etc, and then see or check how that compares to your prior teachings in Islam, also, etc, and just see which you think is more or less right, or more or less true/just to you, etc, and/or is more or less right for you/to you, etc, as well, etc...

    Cause the greatest evidence for Christ and the Bible is the Bible, and most especially the New Testament, itself, etc...

    Anyway, good journeys friend...

    God Bless!

    All good replies. I suggest you read the bible, and if that doesn't convince you, nothing will.

    The bible has Gods seal of aproval. :)

    JS: Hello Goskel, there is a old adage: with those with faith, no proof is necessary, with those without no proof is possible.

    As to faith, as a Muslim you already believe in the G-d of Ibraham, Issak and Ishmael, who happens to be the same G-d of both Judah and Christianity. There are frig group among the Muslim faith as you probably know that have given many Muslims a bad name but you are correct, the Muslim faith can be peaceful and forgiving. Like our own faith, how we read G-ds word matters.

    As to you becoming Christian, have you had any dreams or coincidences recently that drew you to ask these questions? Do you suspect G-d (Allah) might be sending you here and if so why? Is it for you to covert or could He have another calling?

    First of all, thank you for sparing time for me, my friend, I would like to start like this, as a Muslim, I was a person who fulfilled the orders of my religion well, but whatever happened, something happened to me to research Christianity for 1 month. Yes, I saw the crucifix last week in my dream, I saw things related to Christianity yesterday evening, I don't know I searched a lot, I may be in it, I have fears, I do not know

    JS: All you seen does sound like your being called to learn more. The web site Fredrick Rubinstein gave is impressive and might be a good place to start as regards our historical evidence.

    Joseph drempt dreams and dream can have important meaning, Does the Muslim faith teach about dreams and interpretation? From our belief, those images suggests strongly you are to learn more about Christianity but I'm not sure why. Perhaps taking this path of learning the answer will become clear to you. The cross or why we believe in it may also be important. Did you have a context for the cross you saw? Was it on a hill, literal looking or something you might see at a church or in a museum?

    Many Muslims have been having dreams and visions of Christ. This is my favorite testimony of a Muslim who found Christ. He was high up in the Iranian Islamic revolution, but once they were in power they betrayed all their promises and his life was in great danger. It's quite a story, and he did have a dream, as did his wife. He also has great insight into the differences between Islam and Christianity.

    [QUOTE = "Neşeli Şarkı, gönderi: 75796386, üye: 428637"] JS: Tüm gördüğün daha fazlasını öğrenmek için çağrılman gibi geliyor. Fredrick Rubinstein'ın verdiği web sitesi etkileyici ve tarihsel kanıtlarımızla ilgili olarak başlamak için iyi bir yer olabilir.

    Joseph rüyalar ve rüyanın önemli bir anlamı olabilir, Müslüman inancı rüyalar ve yorum hakkında bilgi verir mi? İnancımıza göre, bu görüntüler Hıristiyanlık hakkında daha fazla şey öğrenmeniz gerektiğini kuvvetle gösteriyor ama neden olduğundan emin değilim. Belki bu öğrenme yolunu izleyerek cevabı sizin için netleşecektir. Haç veya buna neden inandığımız da önemli olabilir. Gördüğünüz haç için bir bağlamınız var mıydı? Bir tepede miydi, tam anlamıyla bakıyor muydu yoksa bir kilisede veya müzede görebileceğiniz bir şey miydi? [/ QUOTE]
    It was not a church, it was a wooden and clay cross

    JS: Interesting wood was the original material of the cross, clay can be molded or formed. Could this then reference teaching of the cross is what you need to understand?

    The wooden cross seems kosher or proper but the clay, that which was use to mold is went bad. Is this what you might have seen?

    I apologize because I use language translation and the meaning is distorted. I saw a wooden cross sewn somewhere.

    It's all right. The image of a wooden cross, clay, and something sewn is the real problem, but dreams are not likely to be messages from God anyway, and they are often jumbled or incomplete in any case.
