The trials of inventing a religion

I was re-watching The Invention of Lying today and remembered this scene. I think instinctively many Christians would find this scene offensive, but it has nothing to say against Christianity, rather it sums up in a nutshell the minefield of making up a code for life without God’s true word at its heart. It also highlights to me the essential and only question that needs to be answered when confronted by any religion/opinion/claim: “is it true?”

(Excuse the strong language around the four and a half minute mark.)
