Religion is typically defined as a social-cultural system of designated behaviors and practices, morals, beliefs, worldviews, texts, sanctified places, prophecies, ethics, or organizations that generally connect humanity to supernatural, transcendental, or spiritual elements; however, there is no scholarly consensus on what exactly constitutes a religion.

 

This article will go over the “Christian vs. Agnostic” debate.

 

Religion has been around for centuries. The goals and primary purpose of practicing religion are to achieve salvation, redemption, and atonement for oneself and others and to render proper worship and obedience to God, if there is one.

 

Salvation and God are viewed differently by different religions. People were obliged and forced to follow religion back in the day as it was a mandatory part of human life. The belief was an essential component of one’s life, and anyone who would not believe in God and God’s existence would be rewarded with ruthless and horrendous punishments.

 

But now, we have progressed as humans and opened our minds to so many things. Religion has been opposed by certain articles, such as atheism and agnosticism.

 

Agnostics

Agnosticism is generally a lazy idea. Agnostics assert this belief that for human beings, it is impossible to know anything about the creation of the cosmos or whether or not the divine creatures exist.

 

It is believed that agnosticism is unsustainable, but for quite different reasons. Some people with credible knowledge have been advised to suspend belief with insufficient evidence.

 

It is not an option since religion forces us to choose between two options that we must decide for or against it.

 

Agnosticism is the idea that God, the divine, or the supernatural exists but that their existence is unknown or unknowable. “Human reason is incapable of offering sufficient intellectual arguments to explain either the belief that God exists or the conviction that God does not exist,” according to another definition.

 

An agnostic person can also be recognized as the questioner, the doubter, and the challenger since they are a person who holds the view that any ultimate reality (such as God) is unknown and probably unknowable (source: Merriam-webster). The Agnostic defers judgment, claiming that neither affirmation nor denial is supported by adequate evidence.

 

Christians

Christianity is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. It is the world’s largest religion, with about 2.6 billion followers as of 2020 estimation.

 

Its adherents, known as Christians, make up a majority of the population in 157 countries and territories and believe that Jesus is the Son of God, whose coming as the Messiah was prophesied in the Hebrew Bible (called the Old Testament in Christianity) and chronicled in the New Testament.

 

While Christians worldwide share essential principles, there are disparities in how the Bible and sacred traditions on which Christianity is founded are interpreted and interpreted.

 

Agnosticism asserts that there is no compelling proof for the existence of a demonic or spiritual world and plenty of reasons to reject it. In Christianity, agnosticism is not considered something lenient as doubtfulness.

 

But instead, it is straight-up recognized as disloyalty and deceit. The ecclesiastic observation is that one’s hesitation indicates that they do not believe in Jesus; as a result, they are an “Infidel” rather than an “Agnostic.”

 

The agnostic might respond in denial for two reasons which are because their evidence that Jesus said what you say he said is worth very little; and second, because a man can be an agnostic in the sense of admitting he has no positive knowledge while still believing he has more or less probable grounds for accepting any given hypothesis about the spiritual world.

 

Just as a man can openly admit that he has no way of knowing whether the planets are generally inhabited or not and yet believe one of the two possible hypotheses to be more likely than the other, he can admit that he has no way of knowing anything about the spiritual world, and yet believe one or the other of the current views on the subject to be plausible to some extent.

 

The second response is self-evidently correct and does not require further debate. It is to be brought up to be fair to those agnostics who may place higher importance on pneumatological hypotheses and not avoid the duty of proclaiming whether Jesus sanctioned the demonological aspect of Christianity or not.

 

On the other hand, the first response raises the issue of whether biblical and other sources from which ideas about the spiritual realm are drawn may be considered unimpeachable historical evidence in questions of reality.

 

People who identify as “Agnostics” have been accused of doing so because they lack the confidence and courage to declare themselves “Infidels,” and it has been said that they have acquired a new term to avoid the stigma associated with their actual designation. Agnosticism has no disagreements with scientific theology.

 

The Agnostic, on the other hand, knowing all too well the power of prejudice, peculiarity and oddity, even on those who seek to be completely fair and unbiased, can wish there was nothing more dire and important than that the scientific theologian should not only be free to focus on different types out the matter in his way, but that he should, if possible, find flaws in the Agnostic position; and, even if the demonstration is not possible, that he should put, in full force, the grounds The scientific theologian acknowledges the Agnostic principle, even if his conclusions differ significantly from those of the bulk of Agnostics.

 

Our Final Thoughts

In our opinion, religion is a choice. So, the “Christian vs. Agnostic” debate is an unjust one. Suppose humans have the option and opportunity to love and worship God.

 

In that case, they must also have the option to reject him—which equates to sin in terms of Christianity and any particular religion.

 

Agnosticism, however, permits humanity to freely choose whether to do good or evil without being aware of God’s existence, making it too simple and effortless to do good, which is entirely what a good human and an empath must focus on.
