To the many moms on this site arguing what religion is "right" or "wrong", I want you to watch this video and reconsider the circular logic and selective reasoning that compells you to have faith.
Do not consider changing religion or faith b/c of this video or for what anyone else tells you. But consider the posibilities, the knowledge, and freedom of religion.
My question: (after you do your own research) is Jesus a Myth, or "a" Messiah?

I think Jesus is the Messiah, because the Hebrews expected Him and because of the signs He performed.
I believe in miracles because that is the best way for God to communicate with us, by suspending the laws of nature (sudden healings, Virgin Birth, Resurrection, etc.)
I believe that all of humanity (Nature) has been reaching out to the Supernatural (God) since time began, and that Christ is the answer not only to the Hewbrews but to the Gentiles (Pagans) as well.

I watched the video and in all honestly Jesus is still the Messiah. Much of the information about Horus is miss represented and there is a lot of information we don't know about the Egyptian beliefs. There is no reason or evidence that Horus was born to a virgin in a cave. Isis is not Mary. Horus was not crucified he dies and simply reemergesevery morning as the sun god. It really is an internet myth. Horus is the sun god, Jesus is the Son of God. There is very little evidence, most of which has been provided by mainly two egyptologists. Thank you for posting the video I enjoy learning about other people beliefs.

Precious333... where are these prophesies you speak of that came true? I see nothing but New Testament writers taking Old Testament versus out of context and trying to MAKE them fit Jesus.
Oh... and Ryansmom, there is just as much evidence for Jesus's birth than there is for Horus's (absolutely NONE), so what makes you think one is true and the other is not?

From my studying, I have come to the realization that Jesus is not the Messiah, he doesn't fit the requirements of the Messiah found in Jewish Scriptures and that is not to mention that the whole purpose of the Messiah was not an atoning death for all of man kind. I'm not sure whether or not Jesus was actually real or not, but that is no longer important to me.
