God could have picked any story to be His story

Standard

God could have picked any story to be His story.

Why did He pick and choose other pre-christian myths

or

did early christians write the bible just to be like everyone else, or to appease the mixed religions of the new christians or to give allegories that the people of the time would understand?

Why wouldn’t God make His story something different, something amazingly- god-like.

I don’t know, seem fishy to me.

Part of the reason I dislike holidays, they really were pagan rituals/holidays adapted by the early church because they didn’t want to give up the rituals.

Why would smart people who know history and theology still celebrate Christ’s birth on Dec 25th?

I take the bible take literal and if I find out the bible isn’t God inspired or man has sullied it too much, then what does one believe?

What else do we know of Jesus as deity, but from the bible?

What other epistles/letters/books talk about Him?

What other writer during that time talked about Him? Josephus?

    >Christianity is unlike any other religion; that is why they were hated then and we are hated now.

    >Like the Da Vinci Cod?

    >Christ won. Christians celebrate in His name. Others celebrate too.

    >In some countries everyone becomes a year older when new years is celebrated. A day on the calendar is arbitrary. God incarnate is good news and is true.

    >There is too much evidence that the Bible is true not to believe. Man made traditions can be set aside.

    What else do we know of Jesus as deity, but from the bible?

    >Read Cold-Case Christianity by J. Warner Wallace. He is a police detective atheist who has examined Christianity from the perspective of a detective. He considers other sources as expert witnesses and uses them to solve the case. There are many other sources.
