Christianity is true. It is not false for Jesus died for our sins
Peepette

I accept this debate.

All religions, except when radicalized, have a grounding of peace and charity toward others.
Though the thought that one's religion is the only true religion is also held by others of
a different faith. My premise is institutions of religion were created by man. This is not
to negate the merit of their teachings, but historically religious institutions have been developed to explain the unexplainable in the world and to create a sense of community and social order amongst those of like minds. To say that Christianity is truth; for you within your belief system this is the case. For others religious truth lies elsewhere.

Every religion in the world takes the stance that theirs is the true religion. Objectively, how can this be true? The world's religions have evolved, morphed and changed throughout history. Many have shared historical pasts with parallel storytelling and mythology. They all have explanations on how the world was created, descriptive on how one should live one's life and methodology on how to worship God. It can make one think on what is the truth on the matter. On the premise that there is an omnipotent being, would the religion of one group verses another be of importance? Or is the mere belief in a God sufficient enough? I don"t think an all powerful being capable of creating all of existence would lower itself to this level of pettiness. The metaphysics of truth differs from culture to culture, person to person, group to group.
