I really don't have time for this, that's why I rarely post here, and I don't know how to maneuver this site and its tools but:
Christianity is the major religion in the world Major religions in the world.
Christianity went as far as they could with the resources they had back in those days. Still, even if Christianity is where the Europeans settled,
look how much they took over and by what means.
Faith? That faith was imposed on people, and they were conditioned to have/learn that faith. A faith that is not original and was taken from other
religions. See ' The Christ conspiracy' by Acharya S.
So, what you are saying is that, even though Jesus is a made up story from 2 thousand years ago, because it's been so long, because it has been past
from generation to generation, that makes it true today. A lie can inspire anyone when is put the right way, that doesn't mean that is not a lie.
Christians have their faith based on a lie, but most important, based on fear... Hell.
Again, you referencing the bible is like walking on water.
You ask: "If you make up a story that says that you must kill other people in order to be saved and have everlasting life, are people going to follow
it? And if they do follow it, is it going to fulfill their lives by bringing meaning, purpose, direction, and believable answers to the questions we
have always asked- "why are we here? What is the point of life?" My answer: That is exactly what Christianity was all about and came to be
You asked me to show you proof of what I speak of but the only proof would be to take you back in time so you can see it for yourself, for every book
that I could refer to you, you could easily say that they are just theories and speculation.
If you have ever read the bible you might notice that the old testament and the new are 2 completely different books, where the first, that NEVER
mention Jesus by name, is full of punishments, sorrows, killing and all that 'good' stuff.
There is no HISTORICAL proof that Jesus ever existed outside of the new testament, not even the town he was supposed to be born existed at the time
he supposedly lived.
The book that I referred you to explains in detail how most of Jesus' preaching, words were taken from other characters older than Jesus.
RELIGION created hate, division and war. If you spend more time reading the bible, you would see how even God was racist and instigated wars. Just
imagine this: A god that can kill a whole planet, besides 8 people and selected animals, just because a city or country wasn't abiding by his word...
what kind of God is that?
I was a Christian for 19 years... Since the moment I was born till I was 19.
If I came out to too strong when I replied to you the first time, and now, I apologize.
For you not to be a Christian, you try to defend it very well.
