Your Conversion Made You a Better Person? That Does Not Prove Your Faith is True.

How many times have you heard a Christian say the following:

I know that Jesus is real and that Christianity is true because of the miraculous changes he has made in my heart and in my life.  I never could have accomplished these incredible changes on my own. 

The problem is, Mormons and Muslims (and others) say the exact same thing about their conversions:

 

Both the young man above who is so excited about his new life as a Mormon and the young woman below who has found incredible meaning to her life through Islam are obviously very sincere, genuine people.  So why are they wrong, dear Christian, and you right?  Isn’t it obvious:  Just because your conversion has given meaning to your life, has made you a better person, and has given you peace and contentment, that does not mean that your beliefs are true.  Traditional Christianity, Mormonism, and Islam cannot all be true.  Only one of them can be true…or maybe none of them are true.

Your feelings, perceptions, and personal experiences are not reliable indicators of universal truths.  Demand a higher standard of evidence, my Christian friend.  You demand extraordinary evidence for extraordinary claims in all other areas of your life, so why make an exception for your religious beliefs?  Feelings, perceptions, and subjective personal experiences just do not cut it.

One thought on “Your Conversion Made You a Better Person? That Does Not Prove Your Faith is True.

  1. “I know that Jesus is real and that Christianity is true because of the miraculous changes he has made in my heart and in my life. I never could have accomplished these incredible changes on my own.”

    People who say things like this tend to, in my opinion, have low esteem, and likely see themselves as a failure. They severely underestimate what they are capable of, and allow their low self-esteem to hoodwink them into believing nonsense. I find these kinds of statements saddening.
