While the title statement to this post may apply to all religions in some respect, I am only speaking to what I know personally and trying not to presume a knowledge of faiths that I know nothing about. Belief in a higher power is logical Simply believing that there is a higher power, or many of them, is quite logical. The Kalaam Cosmological Argument is an example of how a god is a viable, logical explanation as to how the universe came to be. This is, of course, not to say that those who are atheist are illogical; merely that there is sound logic for the existence of something outside of the universe that we live in. Belief that Jesus Christ is God is entirely illogical To go from "there is a higher power" to, "Jesus Christ is the Son of God" is an entirely different matter. It has been the tendency of Christians past to point to Jesus' life as described in the Gospels as proof of his claims. Working with the understanding that the Bible is a historically accurate retelling of Jesus' life, my push back, for those Christians, is that miracles are not proof of one's deity. There is a chasm between saying "Jesus did this, so Jesus must be God." This extends to his execution at the hands of the Romans. It even pertains to his resurrection, three days later. Those events, in it of themselves, are not logical reasons to believe Jesus is God. Let alone that Jesus is a part of a trio of "beings" that makes up one God (Christians suck at math, btw). It is the equivalent of saying: "The man ate a hamburger from McDonalds, therefore he is poor." Being poor and eating at McDonalds could be related, but you cannot draw that conclusion simply from seeing a man seated under the golden arches. The only conclusion is that the Christian faith, the complete trust and confidence that Jesus is God, is illogical. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- This is the first part of a blog post I'm writing for a website that, hopefully *crosses fingers* will be up an running in September or October. I'm pre-writing a lot of content for it as to create consistency. I'm looking for some feedback/push back from you guys as this probably going to be a more controversial post for Evangelicals. The next posts would cover what "Christian" faith is; followed by why illogical, ignorance, and inconsistent are not the same things; followed by my own personal testimony on why I believe. Thanks for reading.
