Cold Case Christianity


The Best Reason to Be a Christian (Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast S6E11)

Why are you a Christian? Why do most Christians identify themselves as believers? Is there one reason that is better than the rest? J. Warner describes the nature of faith and belief in this episode of the NRBtv Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast.

Be sure to watch the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast on NRBtv every Monday and Saturday! In addition, here is the audio podcast (the Cold-Case Christianity Weekly Podcast is located on iTunes or our RSS Feed):

For more information about the reliability of the New Testament gospels and the case for Christianity, please read Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels. This book teaches readers ten principles of cold-case investigations and applies these strategies to investigate the claims of the gospel authors. The book is accompanied by an eight-session Cold-Case Christianity DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.

    I think back to when I was a young person, left clueless by me church in all matters of communicating my faith. If I’d been asked why I am a Christian then, I’d have not known what to say. Maybe something about sins being forgiven. But the basic answer ‘it is true’, is great.

    I was raised in a Christian family, however I also looked at Islam, hindu and humanism. At the end the Bible/Christianity was the only one that really made sense and explained the things I was in the world.
