This is the most stupid affirmation I've heard. That's it: let`s build a system, put whatever we want there (true or not), and then, if anyone question us, let's answer: you must see through our view. We don't need to prove our claims. They are true because they are based in our world view. This can explain the number of churches nowadays, each one interpreting the Bible to their own benefits. I have an example: one church, created here in Brazil, and spread all over the world now, states that money and wealth is good. Reason: Jesus was a prince, and every prince is rich, so they conclude that Jesus was rich, and then be rich is not a sin (please give me 10% percent of your money, thank you). This is not a joke but a sad fact.
