12 Steps that Show Christianity is True

Here’s a Twelve Step argument for the Truth of Christianity. This is adapted from an Apologetics workbook by Norman Geisler and Frank Turek.

  1. Truth about reality is knowable.

  2. The opposite of true is false.

  3. It is true that a theistic God exits.

  4. If God exists, then miracles are possible.

  5. Miracles can be used to confirm a message from God (i.e., as an act of God to confirm a word from God).

  6. The New Testament is historically reliable.

  7. The New Testament says Jesus claimed to be God.

  8. Jesus’ claim to be God was miraculously confirmed by”

    1. His fulfillment of many prophecies about Himself;

    2. His sinless and miraculous life;

    3. His prediction and accomplishment of His resurrection from the dead.

  9. Therefore, Jesus is God.

  10. Whatever Jesus (who is God) teaches is true.

  11. Jesus taught that the Bible is the Word of God.

  12. Therefore, it is true that the Bible is the Word of God (and anything opposed to it is false).

I will deal with each point in my Christian Apologetics podcast, Apologetics Evangelism.
