ABBA's Björn Ulvaeus on Religion

1 comment:

  1. Interesting video and comments. Bjorn never once mentioned his reasons for not believing in God. He mentioned nothing about the Bible, the history of Jesus, Judaism and Christianity. Only to discuss the recent actions of extremist Islam and brand all religions as harmful and dangerous.

    The evidence for believing in Jesus Christ is strong, as I discovered after much skeptical research. The Jewish scriptures, according to scholars, pre-date Christianity yet so many verses tell of God living among his Jewish people and bringing a replacement for the Jewish Old Testament (Jeremiah 31:31-34, Malachi 3:1, Zechariah 2:10-11), making the second Temple of Jesus' time greater than the first because world's nations would be joined with the God of Israel (Haggai 2:6-9, Zechariah 2:10-11). So much of Isaiah rings true with recorded secular history regarding Jesus' crucifixion, ressurection and the spread of this story worldwide. The Jewish scriptures even mention that the Jews would reject their Messiah Jesus (Isaiah 11, 25, 28 and Psalm 118). The history record (Roman, Jewish, Greek and Christian accounts) confirm the playing out of these ancient Jewish verses - Christ's death in Jerusalem and the spread of belief in his resurrection worldwide. 

    The Old Testament Jewish Scriptures accurately predict the now known history of the construction of the second Temple, the life and death of Jesus, and the destruction of this Temple in 70 AD in that order (Daniel 9:24-27). More recently it predicted the Holocaust followed by the re-establishment of the State of Israel (1939 to 1948) in Jeremiah 16 - 2000 year old words. That's hard to explain without God and the truth of the Bible. All of these words pre-date Christianity.
