How are unbelievers supposed to know that Christianity is the truth out of all the religions in the world?

If you were born and raised in Japan, where only 1% of people are Christian and almost everyone else practices some form of eastern religion, how could 

you possibly  know that you were being lied to your whole life and Christianity was actually the truth?

    Its called the great Christian commission.

    Matthew 28:19-20 KJV — Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    Mark 16:15 KJV — And Jesus said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

    We teach the Gospel. Its not our duty to prove or convince. Not all who hear the Gospel message will believe it and convert. And God judges these for rejecting his message of salvation.

    Witnesses of truth from the Holy Ghost, of course.

    Second answer: It doesn't really matter that much: Every single one of God's human children shall have a fair chance to learn the gospel of Christ (1 Peter 3:18-20; 4:6) and benefit from it (1 Cor. 15:29).  God's love, justice, and mercy are all intact.

    So why obey Christ now?  Because he clearly teaches that he shall reward us according to our works.

    Because its founder clearly demonstrated that he was God, by constantly doing things only God could do. No mother founder of a religion has ever done anything comparable, because they couldn't, being just ordinary human beings.

    Those concerned for their sin and who seek God will be led to and shown His salvation.

    Those not concerned for their sin are rightly condemned.

    All need to be born again of the Spirit.

    The good news is that you don't need to be born into any particular family to end up putting your faith in Jesus Christ (not any religion) to be saved by God. If that was true, then we'd never see the millions of converts to Christianity from Buddhism, Islam, Shintoism, atheism etc. that happen. You don't even need to be able to read or write. You don't need money. You don't need a position in society. You just need to cry out to God in prayer, asking for His help, and you will get it, according to your station in life. That's why Jesus said you're blessed if you hunger after righteousness, for God will satisfy your heart's longing, as He is Righteousness in His Person.

    Read Matthew 5:1-16. God raises up people to be 'salt' and 'light' in a corrupting and sin-darkened world. The Holy Spirit opens the eyes of the sincere to the Light of the World, Jesus. He also said, “This is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given to me, but raise them up at the last day.” John 6:39

    That's why Jesus gave the Church (that's the people, not the building) - the responsibility of the Great Commission - which is going into the whole world to preach the gospel to every creature, baptizing those who believe, etc (Matthew 28: 19 & 29); "For he who believes and is baptized shall be saved" (Mark 16:16).

    If we Christians are disobedient and we don't tell people about Christ, when they perish or are destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6 Isaiah 5:13) their blood will be on our hands (Ezekiel 33:8)  

    It's not God's will that anyone perish but that ALL should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9) so it's our responsibility to tell everyone about the good news that Christ has died on the Cross and shed His precious blood to atone for our sins, and if we RECEIVE HIM and His sacrifice for us, we CAN BE SAVED.

  • God has a visible organization on earth just as he has in the past to preach and teach to the people of all the nations, peoples, tribes, and tongues of the earth. they are preaching some 1 1/2 billion hours a year to everyone.

    Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    God says that there is no excuse.  Even just looking at creation would make one stop and think about who created all of this.

    How are Christians supposed to know that their particular brand of Christianity is the truth out of all the religions in the world? There are thousands of sects and religions all calling themselves Christian. They can't all be right so which is the correct one - if any?

    The same way anyone knows. They are called by God himself. People want to know the truth.  Everyone starts as a non-believer. You can't be born into Christianity. You can be raised with Christian teachings, but this doesn't make you a Christian. You have to make a conscious choice to make God your King and Jesus Christ your Savior.
