Isn’t Christianity is false, because…

  • Jesus never existed
  • The Bible is just a book of myths written by men
  • Nothing supernatural can happen
  • Paul created Christianity
  • Etc., etc. etc.

When Christian’s asset their faith is true, most unbelievers rightly ask for an explanation why their assertions are true. 

When challenged with assertions, Christians tend to try and reply with a meaningful answer.  But why should Christians give reasonable answers to unreasonable assertions?  Often times the objections people raise are just smokescreens used to avoid their real root issues with Christianity.  Any assertion should be replied to with a simple “why?”  You’ll be surprised what little information people commonly have to back up their assertions.

Unfortunately, the same can be said for most Christians.  It does not have to be this way.  With a little effort, every Christian can be able to at least explain (not just asset) the basics of the faith.  My Why Jesus study, available for free in the sidebar, makes this easy.

  • Why is Jesus necessary for salvation?  Lessons 1 & 2.
  • Why and how to share and defend my faith?  Lessons 3,4, & 5.

1 Peter 3:15  Always be ready to give an answer for the hope you have within you, but do so with gentleness and respect.

Aren’t all religions wrong?

Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhist, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, etc., say their doctrines are correct and others are at least somewhat wrong if not completely wrong.  So isn’t this proof that all religions are wrong?

Answer

So if all Native Americans are found guilty by a certain judge, that judge can then assume all future Native American defendants are guilty?  Each person deserves a fair hearing and it is discriminatory to determine guilt by association.  Each religion deserves a faith hearing as well and it is just as discriminatory to conclude error without carefully evaluating the evidence. 

In addition, associations can be faulty.  Perhaps one defendant who was innocent was declared guilty.  This could happen when a judge assumes the truth instead of carefully determining the truth.  Perhaps Christianity has been assumed to be false from the outset and therefore all evidence then conforms to the guilty verdict.
