Assume that Christ truly did die for our sins, that he was buried, and that he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4). Would it be reality or religion? How can we know that it is true?
The gospel is written by those who saw, heard and felt Him (1 Jn 1.1-3). He was seen of above five hundred people after he rose from the dead (1 Cor 15.6). He showed himself alive by many infallible proofs for forty days after his resurrection (Acts 1.3). All but two of Christ's twelve apostles were martyred for they would not recant. Who would die for a lie?
Believing or not believing that "Christ died for our sins, that he was buried, and that he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.1-4) will not change history. It is written. But when we believe on Christ we become born of God (a mystery that science has not unravelled).
Just suppose that - "Christ died for our sins, that he was buried, and that he rose the third day," then just believe (See FACT OR FABLE and IN DEFENSE OF THE GOSPEL for more written evidence on www.preach-the-gospel.org.).
