Description

It seems that christianity is the only religion to encompass all the moral problems of one's soul and convert it into a just logic of cosmogonical organization. A good historical example of that was the concept of compassion - something that seems unthinkable to someone from archaic period. Taking Homer's Illiad heroes as examples, the paradigms of an greek archaic society, they are presented as proud men, being valued by tehir physical power only.
The figure of Jesus, in the other hand, presented the figure of a man in a vulnerable position as symbol of power for the first time in history. This symbol perfectly represents what christianity pursues - humility, forgiviness, love and compassion - isn't it what guides social conduct nowadays? Isn't it the virtues that, for example, all heroes in fiction have? Or the virtues people try to mimic when they want to look good in other people's eyes?
It seems to me that only in christianity we can see this characteristic - no other religion in history before had a character like Jesus, someone who forgivess a prostitute or is represented as someone who loves his enemies.

Arg: Not all parts of society
  • In India, morals are majorly influenced by Hinduism.
  • In Afghanistan, morals are majorly influenced by Islam, not Christianity.
  • In North Korea, morals are majorly influenced by Juche, and Christianity is illegal.
  • China is 90% secular, meaning that at least 90% of the people do not hold morals dependent upon Christianity.
  • In Israel, morals are majorly influenced by Judaism, which is not Christianity, as they don't believe in Jesus.

  • Because these cases exist, this means that not the entire society resides on Christianity morally, meaning the topic is not proven true at all.
  • Vote CON.
