Faith is not “wishful thinking”. It’s not “believing without evidence” or “believing in spite of the evidence”. Faith is a “reasonable trust in light of the evidence”. If you’re having difficulty answering objections from atheists, we’d like to help. We’ve assembled a collection of articles to help you think through your Christian beliefs and make the case for Christianity:
Most of us, as logical, reasoning people, examine evidence to form reasonable arguments and beliefs. But few of us are familiar with the rules of evidence and the practical use of evidence in forming cases. This section examines the rules of evidence as they apply to the investigation of Christianity.
Rational people examine evidence to make reasonable inferences. Christians are no different. We follow the evidence to the most logical conclusion possible, including the evidence for God’s existence. This section examines the cumulative and compelling case for Theism.
It’s hard to believe the miraculous claims of Jesus, but the Christian story of God’s entry into the world is a claim of history. As such, it is either verifiable or falsifiable, based on the historical evidence. This section examines the evidence from history related to Jesus of Nazareth.
Skeptics often doubt the reliability of the Bible. Is the Bible a trustworthy document? Are its claims true? Is there a way to evaluate the reliability of the Bible? This section examines the case for the reliability of the Bible, particularly in its claims related to Jesus.
Many skeptics find the idea of Hell to be outrageous and repulsive. The notion of a place of eternal punishment where those who reject Jesus will suffer torment seems like an ugly and distasteful idea. This section examines the philosophical and theological case for Hell.
It seems that all of us, atheists and theists alike, must acknowledge and account for the presence of evil and suffering in our universe. While both views recognize the existence of evil, only Theism offers hope in the midst of the suffering. This section responds to the problem of evil.
It’s one thing to accept the existence of God and the truth of Christianity, but another to try to live consistently with these beliefs, especially when the Bible makes many claims about important social issues. This section examines the claims of the Bible related to cultural “hot topics”.
