Rhetorical question: Are you a Christian? You have heard that in the absence of evidence the simplest answer is often the solution. So, a logical mind may conclude that God does not exist. But, what if it did, in the form of Jesus Christ, actually came down from “heaven” and showed itself? Would you follow Jesus Christ if it proved its omnipotence, justice or goodness, and omniscience? If you would (I think I would) does that make me a closet Christian if I’ve already decided that I would? I have hope that there is an afterlife because it would be a bonus to this existence. I don’t have to have one, but I think it is something worth hoping for. Since I hope there is, and I like the Christian’s view of it, should I act on the hope and choose to believe beforehand? Is that even necessary? Am I a Christian just for thinking this? According to the Bible, I need to believe to have everlasting life. I’m thinking that if there is a God, then the Bible surely is wrong and its meaning degraded. How can an omniscient God demand that unbelievers believe without proof, knowing how difficult it is in a learned society to reject logical reasoning? If we are conditioned to mistrust hearsay, then how is it a fair requirement? I was doomed to fail from the start and led in this direction from experience, so how is that fair? If there is a Christian god, I don’t believe the Bible is accurate. In fact, it discourages logical minds, calling them “foolish”.
