A new poll in the UK shows that 40% of people think Jesus was a mythical figure and did not really exist. Based on polling data of 3000 people the article says:

“More than a third of people (39%) thought Jesus was a mythical figure, rather than actually existing in history. This was particularly the case for under-35s, who were 25% more likely to think Jesus didn’t actually exist than those aged 36 and above.”

Now what makes this really sad is that this claim that Jesus never existed is absurd and is contradicted by a tremendous amount of historical evidence. Nevertheless this error is widespread, as evinced by this poll, and Christians need to be ready to answer this objection and others like it.

For this reason, below are SEVEN free resources you can access right now to learn the truth about the historical Jesus, the existence of God, and how to answer common objections to Christianity:

3. Quick Video: How Do We Know That God Exists?

Many atheists claim that belief in God is pure wishful thinking and irrational. However, many of the top philosophers and scientists in the Western world have believed that God exists on the basis of reason alone.

Not only that, but the existence of God is still a question that is taken seriously at the highest levels of academia. In fact, you can go to almost any major university and take classes in the philosophy of religion where these questions are discussed. Moreover, there are several peer reviewed academic philosophy journals devoted to this question.

4. Free Book: How To Answer A Jesus Critic

All Christians have a duty to share the Gospel with unbelievers, and in doing this, you will very likely run into what we might call a “Jesus Critic,” that is, someone who offers objections to Christianity. These objections will be reasons or arguments on why we should think Christianity is false.
