God does not disallow what He has already allowed because He DOESN’T make mistakes! He gave Adam free domain over all creation. Therein lies your free-will.
Just because ‘man’ does things that endangers his soul, does not translate to God “LETTING” him go to Hell. However, since man clearly keep straying from God when left to his own devices, I think you have a point about “God allowing it.” This is probably WHY God also gave us THE ANSWER. And what an ANSWER!
He didn’t send an Angel to tell us, but He, HIMSELF, came down here to teach, show and tell us. ** That is the main difference between ‘us’ and other religions or belief systems.**
I disagree with Singing Beauty. WE KNOW THE ANSWER! Ours is not a BELIEF! A belief has the possibility of a 50% right or wrong! We ‘believe’ the sun will rise tomorrow. The possibilties (belief) may have the Earth hit by an asteroid and spin out of this solar system tonite or something happen to the Earth or sun today or tonite, rendering that ‘belief’ incorrect.
That is NOT CHRISTIANITY! Christ is as REAL as the nose on your face! Punch it if you don’t think it’s real.
The ONLY faith required for Christians is that Jesus Christ is WHO HE SAID HE IS! Catholicism professes that EVERYTHING He said is true. He IS GOD on Earth. God Incarnate. God made flesh. I say Catholicism because they are the only ones who take everything He said as God-Spoken! and have the FULL understanding of what He said…including Real Presence!
Christianity is not a ‘best guess’ until some pieces of evidence confirms it or leads to something else.
Why is it the true religion?
Evidence. On the temporal level, without Jesus Christ, the entire Old Testament could be fiction! Judaism hold to Moses still as the last Revelation from God. You’ve seen what ‘thinkers’ have done with Moses’s deeds and cast doubt upon not only the exodus, but all the miracles God performed through Moses in his time! 40days on a mountain by yourself is plenty of time to carve your own tablets of 10 rules and bring it down and say they’re commandments from God. Mohammed and Joseph Smith did the same!
Jesus Christ cited the OT and taught from it, and added NEW teachings and understandings of it. In other words, He validated the OT and revealed it as being OF God and FROM God. Then He built a church as THE ANSWERS for all enquiries to come. Then left man again to his devices to exercise his free-will, Divinely given to him when he was first made. But the ANSWER is already revealed for any who is interested.
Without Jesus Christ, there is no right or wrong religion. You can believe the sacred cows will lead to everlasting life or better existence in some other realm after here, and it would be fine! Without Jesus Christ, it wouldn’t matter what you believed or not believed.
**“I am the Way, the …” awww you get the picture. It’s not that He dared say it. It’s that He BOTHERED saying it at all. Either He is Who He said, or a raving lunatic! **
Koolerkev, it’s not guess-work. If you must, research and examine everything.
