At what age is someone "able to make a case for, or against, Christ"?
The soul is accountable at conception, in fact much longer before. The Word was preached in the beginning. Everyone receives the benefit of Christ, it's just that some get more than others.

I think George Orwell said that.Everyone receives the benefit of Christ, it's just that some get more than others.

Still doesn't change the cosmic reality, that we are in extreme danger here in the Material world and we should want to get out.
Any rational or critical thinker can make such arguments against those types of claims.I think the typical 12-year-old, unburdened by a lifetime of brainwashing, could make a pretty compelling argument that the most popular claims about "Christ" are BS.
I was questioning religious BS even at 7-8 years old. Even then it was illogical to me and has become even more so as I got older.I'm going to say 12-14. When they become teenagers, they really start thinking for themselves and questioning what they've been told.

The oldest person ever was 113, so I figure after a couple of years of kicking around he would have a pretty solid impression formed and be able to make a good case.
Well ok then. Same principle, I raise my estimate to 124.Jeanne Calment lived to be 122
The Shivapuri Baba lived from 1826 to 1963.Jeanne Calment lived to be 122
Fair enough. On the other hand, I think it is perfectly reasonable to make an argument against the actions that it is claims Christ did, and claims about Jesus made by Christians.Well ok then. Same principle, I raise my estimate to 124.
In "Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East." Spalding travels with Masters that are five hundred years old.The Shivapuri Baba lived from 1826 to 1963.
That's 137 years.
There's a great book by J.G. Bennett on his life and teachings. Bennet knew and spent time with him, and brought some of his students with him to England.
