Prophecy. I studied bible prophecy, saw that it was true, recognized the verse "I tell you these things before they happen so that when they do happen, you may believe"(paraphasing of course) So I accepted Jesus Christ as my lord and saviour.

Notice, I accepted Jesus Christ as lord and Saviour, that's something that I did, not God. Then when I put my faith in Jesus Christ, Jesus took the wheel and built my faith.

Matthew 7:
"24Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it."

How can someone study prophecy?

That's like majoring in fortune telling.

That doesn't explain why you choose to believe Christianity is the truth.

I'd like to see feeling get reaaaaalllllly bent. You ought to re-print/continue your biblical passage translations you had going in the OT a couple years back. Those were a riot!

Biblical prophecy was enough evidence for me.

Are you asking me why I choose to believe in Jesus Christ? Or chose to? I choose to believe in Jesus because he actively works in my life, I chose to believe in Christ when I started reading the bible seriously.

I started with Revelation, you could say I was blessed by that into believing.

Revelation 1:
"3Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand."

Who chooses what?

John 6:44
Quote:
no one is able to come unto me, if the Father who sent me may not draw him, and I will raise him up in the last day
John 12:32
Quote:
and I, if I may be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto myself.
John 15:16
Quote:
Ye did not choose out me, but I chose out you, and did appoint you, that ye might go away, and might bear fruit, and your fruit might remain, that whatever ye may ask of the Father in my name, He may give you.
Gal. 1:15
Quote:
and when God was well pleased -- having separated me from the womb of my mother, and having called [me] through His grace
Romans 8:29-30
Quote:
because whom He did foreknow, He also did fore-appoint, conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be first-born among many brethren; and whom He did fore-appoint, these also He did call; and whom He did call, these also He declared righteous; and whom He declared righteous, these also He did glorify.
