My concern is that Jesus Christ is real. Not with whether or not everything else is a myth or not but if they are the truth. There is a difference. And if anyone truly wants to know if Jesus is real and if He spoke the truth, then listen to Him with a open heart and learn from Him.
First of all, no, you are not concerned with the truth. And I know this because if you were, then you would be approaching this discussion with a willingness to scrutinize your own beliefs. You see, looking for the truth is hard; especially when it's not what we want to find.
Jesus Christ is a character in a book, ILY. And in that sense, he deserves to be looked at with a careful eye. And when you do that, you have to examine the claims of that book in the same way
that you examine the claims of any other character in any other book, else you are not looking for truth. You're only looking to confirm what you already think.
When you ask yourself whether or not the claims of the biblical character of Jesus Christ are more likely true or not true, the answer is obviously that they are more than likely not true just for the sheer fact that walking on water, turning water into wine, and claiming to be the son of an invisible sky man typically sets off that buzzer in your mind that says 'this is bullshit, this is bullshit'.
The same should be said of Allah, Vishnu, Thor and all the rest, correct? If someone were to say to you that Muhammad is real, and that all you have to do is listen to him with an open heart to see that, what would you say to them? Would that be enough for you? Can you not see that this entire premise is just a trick for your mind?
Because if I had gotten everything I wanted or thought that I needed. I would have already been dead. He already knows these things and he can help you to understand that. He can and will show you that He is Almighty.
So can the milk jug. You just haven't asked the milk jug with all of your heart. The milk jug will not give you everything you want, because it knows that if you had everything you wanted, you'd be dead. It's a smart milk jug. All you have to do is drink from the milk jug and it will show you that it is almighty.
Now, read both our statements, and see if you can find a way to prove that yours is any less ridiculous than mine.
What measurable difference can you show me that would make me thing that prayer to a milk jug was less effective IN ANY WAY than prayer to your God?
There is only one GOD.
You say this as if it were a statement of fact. What evidence do you have to back it up?
Man has created many gods for themselves but there is only One GOD and there will always only be One GOD.
What evidence do you have that it is yours?
Jesus said His Father is the One true GOD. I believe Him.
How much do you know about the history of the bible, ILY? Do you think it dropped out of the sky the day after Jesus died?
Do you know that we have no idea who wrote the gospel stories? Do you know that Jesus didn't write a single word of the bible? Do you know that there are many small, and some large differences between the Jesus depicted in each gospel?
