Why cant we just believe in Christianity just because? Just accept it just for emotional reasons? Why not?

Becuase I don't like believing in things that are irrational and fallacious.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Sure. Except there are things that are more emotionally satisfying to me than Christianity. Like a suicide cult. Hey, at least I'll die happy!

what is funny to me is when people say they dont believe Jesus existed. Its documented in history. Pontius Pilate existed. King Herold existed. To deny Jesus existed is to deny nearly every historical figure 2000 years ago. Now to deny he was the son of god that is another story

Rational is that which conforms to reason, and reason is absolute.

Then conversely, you can't prove that Christianity is rational in the first place. Personally, anyone who sends a flood to destroy the earth and wipe out humanity, but claims to love everyone is contradictory, an indicator of its irrationality.

That's a moral story, not truth. It was probably based on mass regional floods that could destroy Turkey. You seem to hate biblical literalists, not "normal" Christians, which feel the old testament is not truth.

Then that undermines the very truth of God.

Why would I wish to believe in an entity that would destroy me?

Oh, I might add that I literally cannot believe in things 'just because'.

why can't you just give it a rest about trying to prove christianity?
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

Here is your golden opportunity to demonstrate that the biblical character jebus literally existed outside Story book land, myths & hearsay?

Last time I looked at the polls the majority of christians interpret genesis literally. Pretty sure they are the normal christians.

You can do it if you don't mind being irrational. Of course, if you do that, you have abandoned the high ground. If Islamic terrorists blow up something you like, just because of emotional reasons, you can only be proud of them for being like you.

The reason is because I don't believe in fallacious reasoning.

Because, I prefer to stay away from cults. I also do not associate with dogmatic philosophies that bog down the rationale and progression of modern science and reason, Thank you.

You can, but everybody can do whatever they want for emotional reasons and you can't blame them then.

If you believe emotionally you can equally disbelieve emotionally. your faith is weak.

A dogmatic post about not being dogmatic...I love it :)

Having imaginary friends is ludicrous. And forcing others to believe in your imaginary friends is insane.
Turn around, go back.

Christianity consists of sinners who have no knowledge of God to understand the prophecies. Christianity is a false religion that God uses to teach men how to build things and kill His last saint. It has nothing to do with spreading the Truth throughout the world because there is no Truth in Christianity.

Because "Christianity" itself was not based on what Christ preached, but was created by man to use what Christ preached to control the mass population. Christ himself was against organized religions, he never meant for his faith to be turned into a belief system.
