This is a great question Chris that merits the discussion so far. I am not going to pretend to have the knowledge to confirm one way or another, as much debate has been presented by people much smarter and more knowledgeable than myself.
I would however like to point you, and anyone else reading this to the writings of CS Lewis. specifically some of his work compiled into the book ‘Mere Christianity’. He explains things in a unique way that even a simpleton like me can grasp given enough readings.
