What is true is that which is and what is false is that which is not. So, here is the fundamental question, are beliefs true or false? If you say all beliefs are true, then what do you do with all the conflicting beliefs in the world and even within Christianity itself? Something can't be true and false at once. Well, perhaps some beliefs are true and some are false. Great, how do you know which beliefs are true and which beliefs are false? There is really only one way to do that. You have to put that belief to the test and make full proof of it. And so this leads us to the only possible answer to our original question that all beliefs are false, until proven to be true at which time they cease to be a belief because they have been found to be the truth itself.
Now 2 Timothy 4:5 calls us to make full proof of our ministry. So, let me ask the community here, can Christianity make full proof of anything they are professing to be the truth? I have heard that they believe and profess that Jesus lived, breathed and walked the Earth some 2000 years ago, was born a virgin, performed many miracles, died, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven and that anyone who puts their faith in him will not perish but have eternal life.
Based on the logic above can anyone on this planet, living now or in this community respond to this thread and show us all that they can make full proof of the ministry of Christianity? No.
The truth is we simply can't because it is absolutely without a doubt impossible. And because no one in this community or in the entire religion of Christianity or on this planet can do that it means that Christianity is nothing more than a false set of beliefs made up by man's own interpretation of the Bible. And because of that fact, the religion of Christianity is false and a lie.
And now we land on a very intriguing question: If the Bible is in fact the inspired Word of God and is the truth, how can the entire religion of Christianity get a lie out of it? The answer is profoundly simple.
Jesus aka the Word (John 1). The Bible says that God is the Word and that the Word is spirit and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. And in the Revelation of Jesus Christ is warns us not to worship the beast and his image. Well, what image do you think that is? Watch and read carefully what I am about to tell you.
When I type "the Word" "Jesus" "a mental image" of someone not real or present is presented to your mind, right? Well, many read the messages of the Word and believe the images presented to their mind is real. And instead of breaking down these images into their spiritual significance and understanding the truth, they begin to worship the image and propagate the lie.
So, I leave you with this thought. The Bible says, "Every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist." If the flesh (which makes up the image) wars against the spirit (Gal. 5:17) and God (the Word John 1) is Spirit (John 4:24) then who is the good guy: Jesus Christ or his opponent the Antichrist especially when the least will be the greatest and the greatest will be the least (the first will be last and the last will be first). Something to think about...
I read an interesting bit that relates, which goes something like......
How can anyone accept blindly and readily what is written by anyone, as being just as it is 'written' [read-their interpretation of it], when what was written [in these cases] was translated from an ancient language which is not common, nor current, which on further examination was, at the time it was current was written in a peculiar style which took years for the intelligent select few of the people of the day years to learn and master; which had hidden synonymous meanings nested and layered within which only the few learned and wise were ever permitted to know, or actually comprehended to any depth.
So the deeper meanings were only accessible to the few and not the many in those times.
Thousands of years later people have poured over fragments of these texts which were preserved or just found and have decided and concluded that they know exactly what they mean, what this information is actually communicating.
Yet amongst the serious scholars of these artifacts there are strong divisions of opinion in this regard which the common man is quite ignorant of...to their comprehensive detriment.
