[quote=Paris Blues]Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life!” We didn’t hear Buddha or Shiva say that did we?
The first mistake usually made is to consider Catholicism as one more “religion” among many others. There are many religions, all of them preach God, all of them want the good, you can pick up anyone. There are all the same. This is the first mistake. Catholicism is not a religion, but a fact, a historical fact. Christ incarnated, lived, died, resurrected. These are facts. You can deny them. You can also deny any other historical fact. No problem with that. Historical facts do not depend on our opinions. Do we believe in Christ? Better to say that we believe in what the Apostles said about Christ.
(1 John, 1, 1-3): “What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we looked upon and touched with our hands concerns the Word of life -for the life was made visible; we have seen it and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was made visible to us -what we have seen and heard we proclaim now to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; for our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.”
Consider then how many people proclaimed themselves being “God” on earth. Christ was one of them. Not Mahomet, not Buddha. Consider the other ones who proclaimed themselves “God”. Where are they? Where are their martyrs and saints? Where are their doctrine and wisdom? Where are their fruits in culture, human dignity, arts and progress?
