    Jesus was the prophet like unto Moses because Jesus isn't just a prophet. He is prophet, priest, and king. Deuteronomy 18:15-19 - A Prophet Like Moses

    Similarities between Christianity and Zoroastrianism exist because people have believed in one God since the beginning of time. Genesis 1:1

    Zoroastrians mention hell and a Messiah because we all know about the one God who created everything and who he is, to one degree or another. The similarities between Zoroastrianism and Christianity hint, not refute, that Jesus is God.

    And? Let me rephrase
    What does Zoroastrianism have anything to do with what I wrote on this thread?

    Turns out Tosfot had an interesting interpretation to what the word "circus" meant...probably best not to repeat here, though...

    You mentioned, regarding this comment, that I changed my mind, and I mentioned Zoroastrianism.

    I believe that realizing it or not, everyone believes in Jesus. salvation in beliefs are either what we do or by what Christ did for us.

    I feel that way about preferring chocolate over vanilla. Everyone does, even those who say they don't and those who have heard of neither. I mean, chocolate has done more for us than Jesus...that's for sure.

    There are hints in Native American religions about Jesus. I believe that everyone knows where we came from deep down inside. Native american christian pow wows?

    If Jesus isn't the Messiah, why do unbelievers who study the Bible admit that the Tanakh talks about original sin and us needing a Savior because we are separated from God by our sins? Why Didn't God Leave Huge Quantities of Secular Evidence For Jesus?

    Those people have no bias in what they say. They have discussions about whey they don't believe in the Bible and Jesus. They believe that the Old Testament talks about the Messiah being a Savior because they read the Old Testament and come to that conclusion. The more you read the Bible, the more you notice things that you didn't notice earlier.

    You forgot to mention that they were also big on human sacrifices; another similarity.

    I believe that pagan practices existed because those cultures walked away from the God who they knew about. Native american christian pow wows?

    Why "walked away"? Doesn't Christianity celebrate the human sacrifice of Jesus? Seems quite similar to what the Native Americans did...
