Atheistic claims are false .
Any view regarding the external world that denies the possibility of rational thought regarding the external world prohibits warrant for the deductive process and is thus deductively false.
Premise 1: If premises begin to exist without reason, then conclusions drawn from them are also without reason.
Premise 2: If there is no god, all initial human premises about the external world begin to exist without reason.
Conclusion: Therefore, if there is no god, all human conclusions about the external world are also without reason.
If there is no god, there is no reason to accept the universality or the invariance of logic or the deductive process, making atheistic claims themselves deductively false.
This Argument from Reason demonstrates that god exists.

"Can justice be done using punishment of infinite nature for a transgression of finite nature?"
Ultimately there is no other way to do it as long as we are the ones paying the price. In the end, it all comes down to a simple math problem. If God grants me 80 years to serve Him with, and I only serve Him for 79 of those years, then I owe God one year of service: 80 - 79 = 1 If I insist on paying God back rather than accepting His offer of forgiveness through Christ, how will I pay Him back for the one year in which I did not serve Him perfectly?
"Since there can be no evidence for something that can't be measured, is it at least fair to say that there is no empirical evidence for god, and therefore no reason to believe he exists?"
If there is no reason to believe something that can't be measured, why would anyone believe that "there is no reason to believe something that can't be measured"? This argument is self-defeating. If we accept it, we must apply it to itself. Once we apply it to itself, we see that it does not meet its own criteria. Then, we must reject it. In other words, if we accept your argument, we must reject your argument on its own terms. I hope this is clear. God bless.
"Why are there so many different Christian religions and denominations? Which one is right?"
Not everyone who calls themselves a Christian is really a follower of Jesus Christ. There are numerous groups that refer to themselves as "Christian", yet have startlingly different beliefs. Practically speaking, Roman Catholic doctrine demands that the current Pope has the final authority on matters of faith. However, no other "Christian" group really cares what the Pope has to say. In fact, some even claim that He is the Antichrist (Westminster Confession 25:6).
