Me, too.I find Christianity to be different from every other religion.
I did a comparative study of Zoroastrianism and Christianity in Community College many years ago. What I discovered was Christianity stood alone as the religion that did not require mans 'right' works to be saved from God's destruction. It was the only one that revolved around having a relationship with the 'god' of the universe in which that 'god' forgave people in lieu of them doing acceptable works to escape damnation. That message, that gospel, only comes through the cross of Christianity. All other religions are based on the human reasoning (the human 'truth') that wrong doing is made right through right doing.
I noticed that, too.Also, when speaking to an atheist it always seems to me that they are trying to convince themselves more than me.
And it seems the greater the level of intensity and emotion the person has, the more he's trying desperately to convince himself.
