What makes your belief so correct?

Is it because you fear the ramifications of shunning your beliefs and them actually being right?

Is it because you fear "what is written" about non-believers in your religion?

Is it because you would rather be safe than sorry?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I often see both sides, believers and non-believers, slammed by the opposite sides, and I just don't see the point.

I try to let people believe what they want to believe, but as soon as I voice an opinion, I am told how I am incorrect. Really? What makes anyone an authority?

I can pretty much guarantee I have studied religion more than anyone here, yet I can also guarantee how someone would come along and tell me how I am wrong about something.

What's up with all that?

I know, I know. It's like thinking the Panthers are better than the Falcons.

Until someone questions yours, right?

No. I will defend my beliefs. That's the personal part . . . their mine.

christianity is the one true religion and its god is the one true god but don't think too hard about why He chose to only show himself to one people and decided such culturally, socially and politically superior civilizations like the greeks, ancient chinese, and mayan were less prepared to receive his word than a bunch of nomadic jews no one could stand.

Christianity is not the only religion to play the "exclusive" card.

I can't speak for anyone other than myself. My walk with the Lord is not about being right or wrong. It's not an insurance policy for eternity. It's a relationship. I have a real tangible relationship with God. God is not some mystical energy field, or mythical being, or some higher plan of existence that you have to achieve. God to me is very real. I know it because of all the time I spend with him. Studding his word, meditating on his word, listening to his word being preached, praying to him constantly. I'm in a continual never ending relationship with a living loving God. I just know it's true like I know waters wet, and the sky is blue. Because I have experienced it for myself. I have seen how God has impacted my life and the lives of the people around me.

I'm sorry that people attack you for stating your opinion about religion. I have had similar experiences too.

Actually God started with just one man, Abraham. From Abraham God created a new nation of people, that were suppose to be holy and set a part for God's work. The idea was to create a priestly nation who then could minister to the rest of the world.
I guess God decided it would be best to start fresh and create a new nation than to try and use one of the "superior civilizations" that already existed.

Yeah, it's not like all those civilizations would have any problem listening to priests of a God that had decided that they were inferior or anything. Can't see any issues with that logic, it's guaranteed success!
