There is no God
What if I were to tell you that a car had no creator. That there was a unexplainable explosion in a metal factory and after millions of years of mindless, random, chance processes, it slowly created itself. You would call me “irrational” and “illogical” because the scenario is impossible. How then, can a single living cell, which is many times more complex than a car, not have a Creator?
Truth is relative
This is intellectual suicide. Things that are different are not the same. There are also other religions that also claim to be exclusively true with contradictory positions. Our inherent sense of justice demands that morality be absolute. Is God an author of confusion and deception?
Islam, Mormonism and Judaism claim to be rooted in biblical history but deny its purity. If I am deciding whether to believe an account of Jesus’ life, would I trust the writings of one person hundreds of years after the event occurred over the eyewitness testimonies of those that walked and talked with him (ie. the gospels)?
No one can know the truth
Jesus Christ’s claims about himself mean that he can not be just a good and moral teacher. He is either a raving lunatic or God in the flesh. What will you believe him to be?
