That's one of the biggest lies that the enemy want you to believe. Jesus Christ died for the sinned of the ENTIRE WORLD. He didn't die for me, or Peter, or Billy Graham. He died for you, me, Peter, Richard Dawkins...etc. Christ is the saviour of the WORLD, not just for those who accept him.
None of them are proven as fact so how can any religion be truth beyond they who choose to believe?
Because there is ONE truth and everything in philosophy tells us that truth is knowable. Either God exists or he doesn't. There is no in between answer. Lone_wolf woke up this morning. If you choose not to believe this statement does it actually make it not true? Of course not. Lone_wolf woke up this morning and that's true regardless of what people choose to believe or feel about it.
If you're going to preach freedom, you'd better be able to practice it.
Well of course! Freedom is God given. Just remember to make the distinction between tolerance and validity. I tolerate
hare krishna's passing out pamphlets, I tolerate
Richard Dawkins books at Chapters, I tolerate
a (reasonable sized) buddhist temple. Hold as valid? No! Because none of those thing are true!
It works both ways, you tolerate
people in your community having a church, you tolerate
street preachers, you tolerate
beliefs that are foreign to you. Do you think Christianity is valid? Do you?
Tolerate - Yes. Hold valid - that's up to you. But remember that there is a truth
, and that truth is knowable
In the wise words of Mulder, "the truth is out there..." Right Wolfie!?!
