And if you really believed, you wouldn’t need to constantly repeat the doctrines of Christianity to yourself, and do everything you can to “build up your faith.” I don’t need to remind myself that the Holocaust happened or that gravity is real. Um, well their beliefs aren’t just amoral propositions. So if they think God wants them to play life a certain way, they are obligated to comply.
I don’t need to constantly “build up my faith” in the existence of magnetism. Hence, wearing a seat belt makes sense if it is their duty in this life to take care of it until the time is right.
In total, they lay out a convincing case that Christianity is untrue.
