Do you imagine yourself a warrior for God fighting the devil for 6,000 years? Do you think this might be a delusion?
What have you actually accomplished with your life? If you imagine a heavenly reward what will this heaven be like? You have wasted your life here. What makes you think there will be a useful heaven? Vikings imagined that a good death in battle earned them a place in an eternal battle in their heaven. Good against evil. Is this myth? Is the Christian story just myth?
What do you think you really accomplish shouting text at the devil you imagine exists? You can't kill the devil you imagine with words. This Satan only exists in your imagination. As long as you imagine it exists, to you it will exist. Imaginary (spiritual) things are that way. You keep the devil alive.
You better hope there is no Devil... that exist. The Christian story is 100% real. :)
I m open to the possibility but reason just does not support it and ... well ... god made me reasoning from youth. As a child I would sit in church and wonder why adults believed this stuff.
Why didn't the established religions of the time of Jesus believe he was god after doing all these wonderful acts? My conclusion was that they knew the show, having done the same themselves. They would look at his philosophy and see the thoughts of the Greeks.
Jesus was used as a rally cry for an anti-Roman movement. I don't think it was his intention, but he desired for the people to rise up and support him. It didn't happen. Jesus was forsaken by the people of his time. The Greeks took the story of this man who would be king and made him a Son-of-God Christ.
A man made myth.
