Mining for God | What Sets Christianity Apart from the Other World Religions?


It’s been rightly said that the scandal
and the greatness of the Christian religion is that it claims that God has
revealed himself through the medium of historical facts. This is scandalous to some because it
means that the truth of Christianity is bound up with the truth of certain
historical facts concerning, for example, the life and teachings of Jesus. On the
other hand this makes Christianity great because it means that we have a way of
verifying the truth of these Christian truth claims and that sets Christianity
apart from the other world religions. When you look at the other world
religions like Hinduism or Buddhism or even Judaism much less polytheism, the
truth of those worldviews those religious systems is not tied to any
particular historical facts such that if those facts were disproven the religion
would be disproven. Buddhism could exist without Buddha. Hinduism exists without the historicity
of Krishna or other avatars and as I say even Judaism could exist as a religion
without Moses. So the greatness I think of the Christian faith is its claim that
God has revealed himself decisively in human history in the person of Jesus of
Nazareth and he has given evidence of this to all persons by raising Jesus
from the dead. If this man really has been raised from the dead then that
means that the God whom he allegedly blasphemed has publicly and
unequivocally vindicated those allegedly blasphemous claims for which he was
crucified. And that I think sets Christianity apart from the other world
religions.
