In the Occult, there are people who claim you can sell your soul to the Devil. However, it is impossible to sell your soul to the Devil, or to anyone else for that matter. The reason is simple, you can’t sell what you don’t own. The Lord God Jesus Christ created our souls, and he owns our souls. Therefore, it is impossible for us to sell our souls to anyone, because our souls are not ours to sell.
Matthew 5:27-30 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away; it is better for you to lose one of your members than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.[a] 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away; it is better for you to lose one of your members than for your whole body to go into hell.[b]
Mark 8:34-38 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
34 He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 35 For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel,[a] will save it. 36 For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? 37 Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? 38 Those who are ashamed of me and of my words[b] in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

Hi, I’m Jason, nice to meet you. If you’re reading this, you’re an Atheist I’m debating, and I’ve sent you here to get to know me and my position a little better. In fact, this post is where I like to begin all conversations about the truth of Christianity. I’ll be discussing why I am a Christian, and what Christian apologetics can and can’t do for you. I’ll close by taking a look at free will and persuasion. Hopefully this will clear up some major misconceptions right at the outset of our discussion, leading to a more fruitful dialogue.
So here’s why I am a Christian, there are three reasons. The Word of God – The Holy Bible, the Holy Spirit’s testimony that Jesus Christ is our God and Savior, and God’s self-revelation through his creation. I have a Bible passage discussing each of those.
