How Can We Be Sure That Christianity Is The Truth?

Recently a Christian told me her adult child had challenged her about her faith, asking questions like: How do you know Christianity is true? How do you know for sure there’s a heaven or hell? How do we know that what Buddha or Mohammed taught isn’t the truth? How do we know we don’t simply cease to exist? In the first century, men similarly challenged the Corinthians, teaching there was nothing after this life, so Paul said:

Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. 1 CO 15:1-2

“Unless you believed in vain.” Would the Corinthians simply cease to exist after death? Was all this stuff about Jesus an empty hope? How did they know it was true? Paul went on:

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. 1 CO 15:3-8
