At a certain point in every human life, he or she will find out that Santa doesn’t really exist [well those who believe and follow the tradition].
Many children believe that Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, brings gifts to the homes of the good children during the late evening and overnight hours of Christmas Eve. So they try to be good all year round just to one day get disappointed when they find out that Santa is just an imaginary being and that, in fact, the presents are put on the Christmas tree by mommy or daddy and were presents received from friends and family.
So, I was just wondering what it would be like for those who believe in Jesus Christ, if close to the end of their lives of dedication, they found out it was all a myth or a legend.
Before you start criticizing me, think about it: how many stories are there? About the supernatural, Ghosts, monsters, aliens, pirates, big foot, you name it!
When you believe in something, do you do it blindly or do you require any sort of proof?
Because in the story of Jesus, there is a part that says that blessed are those who believe without requiring any proof.
29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”-John 20
Does that mean or is it possible that they wrote this part in the bible so people would not question anything?
Creeds still exist today, even with all the resources and technology. It’s maybe part of human lives to have the need to believe or have faith in something.
But back to my question, if you are a believer, what would you do if you found out that Jesus Christ was a legend, just like Santa Claus?
