Lots of discussion in other threads about how big of a jump it is to go from acknowledging a deity, to acknowledging a specific deity.
Everybody is jumping on the fact that there is not an sound argument that supports any specific religion, but obviously the people within those religions believe that their religion has more internal credibility than the others.
So what is it that makes your religion different (and why is that difference better?)
I’ll start (Christian)
The fact that the bible was written over a period of 1500 years by many different authors. What some people call contradictions (they are not contradictions at all) I believe actually adds to the credibility of the bible, because it highlights the different perspectives of the different authors. One person making up a religious book would not be able to fake that in a million years.
The fact that Christianity is the only religion that has nothing hinged on mans performance. There are christians who believe that salvation is earned, but I believe the biblical perspective highlights man’s inability to reach out to be saved. Salvation is not earned, but is a free gift. I cannot think of a single human who, when making up a religion would make himself unable to do anything to merit God’s favour.
