Because there's more to life than one's self, status or material things.

Was Jesus just a man who married Mary Magdalene? Has the church been hiding information from us for years about Jesus? Don't decide too quickly. Examine the evidence first.

The Cases for a Creator, the Bible, Christmas & Faith
Knowing as little as we do about the universe, and not being able to be everywhere in space and time at once, is it wise to believe truth is relative? That there's no absolute truth? That there's no God?
Or is there compelling evidence that suggests a loving, merciful, just and involved creator and sustainer God exists? That the whole Bible is reliable and relevant today?

And that people who have believed those prophecies and his claim and made it and his teachings personal, have experienced and enjoyed what he promised to replace some of the things mentioned earlier with in the present world and all of them with one day soon: a life, family, community and even world filled with peace, health, prosperity, lasting happiness and meaning?
