None Can Prove Authenticity of Judaism and Christianity, Though
Who can understand Christ Jesus by only reading the Bible?
Christianity does not consist of the Bible alone, since it is not written in the way of making people convinced of the claim that Christ Jesus is God. Christianity consists of church's ideology that Christ Jesus is God.
However, everybody would think that the big and time-honored churches and their organization cannot be based on false facts or extravagant fictions. More than that, certain missionaries from Christian churches have been so devout, accepting and helping poor and unlucky people to the extent that none can do without belief in God. As the source of such Christian activities, Christ Jesus could be respected and revered as somebody sent by God. People must have watched and observed carefully what Christians belonging to churches would do to them, if they have not carefully or academically studied ideologies and creeds of Christianity.
To put simply, the secret of Christianity is not in the Bible but rather in the Church.
Then where is the secret of Judaism? Is it in the Hebrew Bible? No matter how mysterious the secret of Judaism is, it seems very rare that Jewish people abandon Judaism and convert to Christianity or Islam. They all seem to be content to live as Judaists. And nobody, including Christians and Muslims, minds authenticity of Judaism, since Christianity and Islam attribute their authenticity to Judaism. But how can they deny the negation of authenticity of Judaism? How can they respond to the claim that everything written in the Old Testament is false?
In other words, Judaism is supported not only by Jewish people but also Christians and Muslims.
However as Christianity is supported by 2.2 billion people and Islam by 1.6 billion people. These Abrahamic religions have survived for 2000 years and 1400 years, respectively. Such many men cannot believe false religions for such long periods according to commonsense.
Men believe in God while they cannot understand God except in their own way. To understand God is not the major purpose for having faith in God. And believers come to understand God more as they strengthen their faith more. Such understanding, however, is not expressed or explained partly because it is very personal. Therefor the mysteries remain: What Christ Jesus was, and whether Judaism is authentic or God of Judaists is real God.
