- Do you believe an all-powerful being is possible?
- If so, can an all-powerful being deceive limited beings?
- Are you a limited being?
- Then how can you trust personal revelation, outside authority, historical records, physical evidence or anything that you feel supports your beliefs in a world with an all-powerful being?
I recently asked this question to the Google+ community for the Christian Apologetics Alliance.
In a world where a supernatural entity exists with the power to reveal knowledge to me or others directly or indirectly, how can I be sure that the same or different supernatural entity won't reveal false knowledge?Here is the link to the original post. The responses, for the most part, refused to acknowledge the entirety of the question. None of the comments were able to adequately answer the question in my opinion, but I encourage you to judge for yourself.
