Belief is Belief

DAVE Barber (Jesus is real, Coastal Times, January 20) has a belief much the same as Brian Sutton.

Good for them to have that much faith in what they believe, but for Dave to call his beliefs “real” is stretching a long bow.

They both can quote verses from their Bibles, but keep in mind that the Bible is not a history book. It is there for the believers to read.

And, Dave, who proved the existence of Jesus “beyond a shadow of a doubt”; is obviously another “believer” who doesn’t understand that belief is belief, not proof.

I have my beliefs, which are different to the beliefs of Brian and Dave. However, I stop at calling them “real”; they are simply my (and others) beliefs.
