While some technology has proven true it doesnt follow that "all" things claimed by Scientists & others is true, without reproach (many dont take the time & energy to carefully thoroughly think thru something before coming out for or against it). I have observed that many people & scientists dont properly take into account every part of what goes into creation of a universe & for life. Therefore, one must be very careful regarding accepting anything that is stated by man.
The problem is that theres many religions out there along with different varieties & offshoots from each one. One day I realized they cant all be right. Most religions came through people who thought up ways they thought would please God. Some realized that religion could be good to control the masses or had other agendas. However, I discovered that religion, for the most part, wont teach you much about God.
For Christians, the trouble began when the Apostles & their disciples were killed off or died over & around the first century. Over the next century others, whom either didnt know Jesus or were less informed than Jesus' 1rst generation of believers &/or intentionally or unintentionally added in their own ideas &/or agenda replaced the original believers. By the time the Catholic religion became a recognized organized religion around the time of Constantine (about 325 AD), most of what the original Apostles & disciples practiced was no longer present (Peter was never a pope nor was he ever a member of the Catholic church).
Yes, religions have made many mistakes. However, do you think that God is all knowing and therefore, would fully understand His purpose, including for Jesus Christ? Many miss this main point - Jesus is the only one in history whom said that He is "the" way, "the" truth and "the" life and NO ONE can get to God except through Jesus (Jn 14:6 - ref Acts 4:12; Jn 5:39; 10:1,7). This means "the" truth was complete & therefore finished through what Jesus taught & did or God doesn't know what He is doing. The truth is either fully true or it is a lie. The full truth cannot contain a lie. The full truth is the absence of any lie. In other words, the truth is either the whole truth or it cant be the truth.
Therefore, either Jesus is the only full truth or there is no actual truth and therefore no God (God would have to know what Jesus was going to say and do). This means either Jesus is whom He says He is or He is just another false prophet among many, whom should be disregarded. If He is the actual truth then there is no need for any other or NEW teaching. This means any so-called new teaching that appeared thereafter & any other religious beliefs and/or from self-proclaimed prophets are invalid and null and void.
**If Jesus came from God as His Son then the Qu'ran is wrong about Jesus. If Jesus Christ is wrong then both the Bible and the Qu'ran are wrong (Jesus is depicted as a good prophet in the Qu'ran). We cannot have it both ways. However, I can assure you that the truth is in the Bible (where Jesus was coming from in everything He did and said).
In fact, He could not have done or said all that is written in the New Testament unless He fully understood the entire Old Testament (the NT did not exist while Jesus was on earth). Jesus could not have fully understood the entire OT unless He came from God. No matter how much many well-meaning people read the Bible they cannot find Jesus Christ without going directly to Him, by and through His instructions.
Only Jesus can open the eyes of the blind and give one God's Holy Spirit. The reason there are so many wrong interpretations is because many people try to find out what is in the Bible through their own initiative and human understanding (Jn 5:39). There is a way that seems right to a man but its end equals death (Prv 14:12).
This is also true regarding the Creation account of Genesis. People cannot rightly understand it without understanding other things in the Bible but you need God's Holy Spirit to begin. The Bible makes it clear that we are to trust no human (which includes ourselves). Unfortunately, our human brains can even trick us into believing something that is not true and the presence of many religions is a direct indication of this fact.
And, the God of the Bible states He is infinite - this just happens to be the only place one could claim to live forever, not needing a "cause" for His existence. The big bang could not be the source of creation unless an Intelligent Being possessed, owned and controlled an area a lot larger than our universe - infinity would rightly fit the bill as the only place He could definitely state that you exist OUTSIDE creation, drawing the borders wherever He decides to.
Again, the Bible is where the truth of God is located. If a church is sincerely studying the whole Bible, knows about being Born Anew, they might be able to help you but religious practices & religion itself cant save anyone.
However, without right knowledge of what is actually in the Bible, you can end up suckered into the spirit of religion & more confused than if you didnt participate at all. It is better to pray to Jesus directly & read the Bible so that you get a better understanding of what is actually of & coming from God (start with John 3 - note: Nicodemus was a very "religious" person yet Jesus told him he was missing the most important starting point [being born anew].
This step must be taken first because no one can live without breaking God's Law at 1 time or another=sin - sin separates us from God - God cannot look upon sin. Then you will have a better chance of making right judgments - see John 7:*24 (see John 3:*3,*5; 5:*39; 3:*16,17,*21,36,*30).
You have a better chance of being saved by praying to Jesus, asking for the forgiveness of your sins, for salvation & for God to give you His Holy Spirit to guide you, following Jesus' example & reading His Word than getting into & following any religious practices (see John 3:**3,**5, Lk 11:*13, Acts 4:**12; 3:*19; II Pet 1:16,*19-21; Acts 17:*11; 8:*31: Jn 20:31; 14:**6; 1:12; 5:24; 6:37; 8:12; 10:*9; 11:25; Jr 10:*2-5).
Whoever seeks Jesus Christ, the Son of God with all his heart and soul will find Him. But this saying is true - you can lead a horse to water but you cannot make them drink. After all, why should God want someone to live with Him forever if they do not want to know Him? The truth of God remains forever while things of a man dies with him, including his religions.
