The Antecedent Principle

Every human belief system is based on human belief in general so saying that Christianity or any religion has historical antecedents and reference points is just saying that human beings have largely always been believers and seeking to understand and engage the spiritual and transcendent. That does not invalidate belief as it exists at any time and is not a logical indictment of belief in general any more than hating cell phones because they have a connection to the previous technology of the phone booth makes any sense. “There is nothing new under the sun.”
