You Have No Opinion On the Matter

ATTENTION: Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics, Mockers, and Doubters

If you never look to see what the Bible says, you cannot test to see if it is true nor can you take the exam. You have no opinion on the matter because you know nothing of it and refuse to educate yourself thereon.
Atheists, agnostics, skeptics, mockers, and doubters enjoy spewing their ignorant opinions about religion, Christianity, and the Bible, yet not once have they ever looked into it or studied it. The nonsense they regurgitate originates from the ignorant opinions of those they have either listened to or read, who also have not once looked into it or studied it. These people are veritaphobes, alethephobes, gnosiophobes, and sophophobes. They are afraid of that which they do not know, and they are afraid and unwilling to learn about it in order to have a valid opinion on the matter. Classic veritaphobia.

If you have never bothered to lift your own finger and look into the various religions and study them, let alone to look into Christianity and the Bible and to study it, you cannot open your mouth against them. You have nothing to contribute to the conversation. You ought to be seen and not heard, remaining in silence. You cannot say all religions are nonsense or claim you are against religion when you know absolutely nothing about any single one of them, let alone all of them. That just makes you an anti-intellectual know-nothing bigot. Too many atheists, agnostics, skeptics, mockers, and doubters take what they have heard or read and run with it to their own detriment and foolishness. They run smack dab face first into the wall.

If you have never looked to see what the Bible has to say, or studied it in its proper context to understand what is taking place, you can say nothing of it. If you have never tested it to see if it is true, paying attention to the numerous times in which archaeology, history, and science have each verified the reliability and validity of the Bible, then you can offer no opinion on it. You cannot take the exam because you would fail. If it were a court of law, you would be dismissed as a witness because your testimony would be suspect and you would be held on charges of perjury. Saying things about religion, and/or Christianity, when you have never bothered to look into them and study them only makes you look like a colossal fool.

Here are some books written by men who at one time were entirely against Christianity. Through honest investigation in attempt to prove Christianity false and bogus, these men discovered the truth and embraced Christianity. More accurately, they embraced Christ Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
  • Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis
  • The New Evidence That Demands A Verdict by Josh McDowell
  • The Case For A Creator by Lee Strobel
  • Cold-case Christianity by J. Warner Wallace
There are plenty more cases out there like these, and plenty more evidence that overwhelmingly supports Christianity as the only true religion. All other religions claim to point the way to something better, but only Christ Jesus boldly stated, "I am the Way. No one comes to the Father except through Me." Jesus is the only way. He is the only truth. All other religions are man-made and based on works salvation, where you have to do things in order to make sure you have earned the final reward. Christianity is unique, being the only religion where salvation is a  free gift to those who repent of their sins and trust in the Lord Jesus as their Saviour.

Christianity is God's religion, revealed through Christ Jesus. The Bible is God's Word, declared through the prophets, the Messiah, and the apostles. It is called Christianity after Christ. The first followers of Jesus were called Christians in Antioch, but it was meant as a derogatory term: "There go those Christ-Ones." Would this religion have had a different name apart from that? Being that Jesus corrected the Pharisees and Sadducees on religious matters, is Christianity nothing more than the true, purified form of Judaism? I honestly cannot say. I will leave you with that to think about and ponder on. "What is Christianity? What would it have been known as if not for the heathen derogatorily referring to followers of Christ Jesus as 'Christians'?"
