No Religion Is Fair

"Not Fair" stampIt’s a fact. Not a single religion is fair. But there are two categories under that.

1—All the non-Christian/Eastern religions, atheism, occultism, the cults, New Age, and even the Roman Catholic version of Christianity . . . They’re all UNFAIR. Why? Because you have no way of knowing who’s calling the shots, and/or you can’t ever be sure that you’ve done enough—which is especially difficult when the rules keep changing! The burden is all on you, and yet you’re not allowed to get a handle on inside information.

Think of the karma cycle: all that punishment for sins you don’t remember, just to be “rewarded” with extinction (nirvana). Think of Catholic purgatory: hoping people will pray you out—but what if they stop before you actually ARE out? Think of the New Age: no official guidelines, yet “the universe” is supposedly keeping track and “helping.” How can a universe decide everything—and based on what? Why can’t we know? That’s not fair!

2—Christianity is MORE THAN FAIR. We know exactly who’s calling the shots (Genesis 1:1). We know what he expects—and “his commands are not burdensome” (1 John 5:3). We know who the enemy is (1 Peter 5:8, 9), how he behaves (2 Corinthians 2:11), and how to fight him (Ephesians 6:10-18). Things we do are because we’re simply (and gladly) following the trusted commander (John 14:1), not because we’re trying to earn points (Ephesians 2:8, 9). That’s all taken care of. Done. God himself paid the price (John 1:1, 14; 3:16; Hebrews 9:28; 10:10). We have the inside information (Psalm 23:1-3; 119:105), and we can communicate directly with God 24/7 (Psalm 145:18; 1 John 5:14, 15). We also know “the rest of the story” (Revelation 21:1, 7; 22:20).

If the UNFAIR religions were true . . . sheesh! I’d be curled up in a ball or screaming “What’s happening?!” Trying harder yet kind of purposeless, stuck in unknowing, insecure about both the present and the future. But look deep into those other belief systems. Ask tough questions. The evidence doesn’t hold up. The evidence for Christianity does. Whew! The MORE THAN FAIR religion is also the true one. Thank God!
