Go for the real one!
Costly handbags might fetch a few thousand Canadian dollars. Mind you, that’s cheap, if you compared with the most expensive handbags in the world. The most expensive handbag of 2019 would have cost you $3.8 million US dollars.Wow, that’s a lot of money! Some ladies purchase expensive handbags because theyare wealth and status symbols.
Why do people buy fake handbags? Some women want to feel good but simply cannot afford the real one, so they go for the cheap imitations. Others are too naïve to distinguish between originals and counterfeits. As for me, I like good stuff but if I cannot afford it, I won’t go for the fakes.
Do all religions lead to the same destination? I don’t think so. So, which is the authentic one? Concerning religious faiths, there must be the one and only real one!
A seeker of the truth must have an objective mind. On the other hand, the quest for faith is not just an intellectual endeavor, as one needs to have subjective experiences as well. The Bible speaks of experiential knowledge and that’s crucial in knowing the truth. Objectively, one must investigate if the stories of Jesus were true or not. Subjectively, we must try to have personal experiential knowledge of Christ. The Apostle Paul speaks of his own experiential knowledge of Jesus, “16 So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! 17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”(2 Corinthians 5:16-17)
Regarding religious belief, go for the real one!
