Question posed to me - "Does God exist?"
How I answer - "I do not understand the question. What do you mean by 'God' and 'exist'?"
Question posed to me by myself - "Do I exist?"
How I answer - "I do not understand the question. What do you mean by 'I' and 'exist'?" The reality is that there is no "I". In Latin "I" is "Ego", which is why psychology uses the term Ego. The Ego is a fictitious character the brain invents because the brain thrives on consistency. Consistency is equated to safety. All organs of the human body are geared to ensure the body goes on living. The brain does this by creating thought and the Ego.
If I do not exist, what does it matter if there is a god that exists or not?
Does Jesus exist? Was there a historical Jesus? Does Christianity exist? Does it matter to Christianity if Jesus never existed or at least did not exist as the Bible portrays him?
1. I do not know. Does it really matter?
2. Perhaps he did. Does it really matter?
4. Unfortunately it is paramount to Christianity, in its current and previous forms, that the Bible be 100% accurate. No Jesus means no Christianity.
