Have you read every holy book?

How can you claim the Bible is true when you haven’t read through every holy book in the world?  Maybe one of them is true?

Answer

Truth is not determined by reading false ideas.  Truth is what equals the facts and everything contradicting the truth is false.  If one determines the bible to be true, reading contradictory truth claims is not necessary to claim the bible’s validity.
Note: To be open minded and informed, I have read the works of the major world religions and cults.  I still find the bible to be true.  Why not read it for yourself?

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.
