Many people today believe that absolute truth does not exist. If absolute truth does not exist, then certainly Christianity is not true.
Jesus made unique claims about himself. For example, he said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) If this is true, it is true for everyone. If it is not true, it is not true for anyone.
Truth is also exclusive. 1+2=3. That excludes lots of numbers: every number that is NOT “3”. Part of the problem many people have with Christianity is that it is exclusive; if Christianity is true, then any belief that contradicts Christianity is not true.
But truth IS exclusive.
The Christian faith is intellectually satisfying because it makes truth claims, and those claims are consistent with reality.
