Again, replace Big Bad Wolf with hell. You could have simply stated "I don't believe in hell."Blob wrote:I don't believe in the Big Bad Wolf and have no fear of him.Thinker wrote:So on one hand you don't believe in hell, but then again you don't fear hell as if that sounds that you believe there would be a hell but you wouldn't fear it.
I would then say you shouldn't mention:Blob wrote:I don't.Thinker wrote:But how do you know for a fact that she didn't really meet Him if you weren't the experiencer?

Islam is the uncompleted branch of the core which is Christianity. An analogy: Judaism is the roots of the tree (the life giver), the roots formed a stump (which is really solid) which is Christianity, and then Islam (the religion of muslims) is a branch off of the stump which can turn into anything it wants to be from the stump, but it isn't solid as the stump.Blob wrote:Then I burn forever, or, accept Christ as my personal saviour and join you in heaven.Thinker wrote:what if what we have been saying is right all along and Christianity is true?
But what if the muslims are right?
It is the law of non-contradiction. The Tanakh is only the Old Testament of the Bible and therefore does not reveal the whole Christian God. The Koran contradicts both the Tanakh and the Bible. While the Koran contains elements from the Tanakh and the Bible, it fails due to its inherent contradictions, and its subsequent misrepresentation of God.
Again, law of non-contradiction plus there is much apologetics to defend the view that the historical figures in the Bible were and are real, backed up with archeology.Blob wrote:What if Christianity is not true?Thinker wrote:Seriously, what harm is it to honestly ask Jesus Christ into your life?
It is possible to want something so much that you contrive it to be the truth. If not, how do you explain muslim converts who are totally certain in their own beliefs?
Muslim converts are somewhat forced to believe or they will face consequences, that is if you have been watching the news on Muslims trying to take over the world with Islam.
Blob, seriously though, I went through seasons of being an agnostic, even atheist, but I somehow found the truth, thus I believe in God. Some of it had to do with supernatural events, but you don't have to believe me on that.
Even as a Christian, I sometimes spontaneously, while driving in my car or elsewhere, automatically get "plugged" back into the worldview of being an atheist or agnostic, and then it goes away. Kind of like putting a lit match to your finger to experience the heat and then taking it away. It is a reminder of what I used to be like and how I can help you out with your worldview.
