Well, you claim that none exist. We both have a one in 3000 chance of being right.
Well, that is, if I denied the existence of the other 2999 “gods”. Augustine and Tertullian and the other Church fathers believed they existed. They simply denied the praiseworthiness of those other “gods”.
If they be called “gods” rightly.
What is a “God”? You might say, “why, it is a supreme Being”.
Has not every other “god” been bested at some point by another being or god? Was not Zeus, the “king of the gods”, bested by Prometheus, who gave men fire, and taught men to trick Zeus with the skin and bones of animals so they could have the meat and fat? And then, was not this great humanitarian chained to a rock to have his liver pecked out for ever?
Suffer me one question: How can such gods, to whom are attributed such weakness, such poverty of power, wisdom, knowledge - how can they be gods?
Ah. And how can I believe in a God - supposedly - that died on a cross due to men?
Did He not rise again and thwart their plans to end Him? Prometheus did no such thing. Zeus was never imprisoned nor injured; no. He was far too weak to be tested by chains, whips, or even death. It takes a strong person to suffer at all.
Prometheus was put in chains against his will. Jesus was crucified, understanding it was to happen to Him anyway.
So the only real comparison between Prometheus and Christ - for Zeus is a weakling, for he spurns suffering - is: did Christ break free in the end?
And there is the pivotal question. Did Christ really live again after He died?
