Q:

How can people say that one religion is better than any other religion? Religion is just a matter of personal preference, as far as I'm concerned, and what works for you might not work for someone else. In my opinion, "truth" doesn't have anything to do with religion (or anything else, for that matter).


A:

I respect your right to your opinion, but I sincerely hope you will be open to reconsidering it. Elsewhere, you make it clear that you don’t want anything to do with God and this is the real issue you face.

Let me ask you a question: Do you honestly think everything in life is just a matter of personal opinion, and there is no such thing as truth? I doubt it. When you get on an airplane, do you care if the pilot believes it makes a difference whether or not he lets down the landing gear? When you get a prescription filled, do you care if the pharmacist thinks it makes a difference what pills he gives you? I suspect you do.

Here’s the point: We don’t need to guess about God, or wonder what He is like. He has revealed the truth about Himself to us. How has He done this? One way is through the world we see around us.

But He revealed Himself most clearly in a way that staggers our imagination: He became a man! That is who Jesus was: God in human flesh. The Bible says, “For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him” (Colossians 1:19). Do you honestly want to know what God is like? Look at Christ. Don’t let anything your pride, or sin, or anything else keep you from Him.
