Why I Believe

I was in an conversation in our chat room the other day with an atheist – one that I thought was a total waste of time, until a friend of mine suggested I review my side of the conversation and encouraged me to post it as a synopsis of why I am a Christian, and what our method of apologetics “looks like” to the outside world.
The result is the attached PDF. Hopefully it will be of some benefit to you as you think about why it is that you believe, and how to best share that with others.

The Atheist's Burden of Proof

I was in a discussion today with an atheist, and the subject turned to the idea of burden of proof. It is a common claim that Christians own a burden of proof to prove that God exists, but that atheists do not own any burden at all. ¬†Here’s my response, that outlines the reason I disagree with this:

Many (and probably most) atheists will say they have nothing to prove at all, because atheism (a-theism) is merely being without a belief in the existence of any gods. Therefore, the only *positive* explicit assertion they are making is about their belief,

A Stop On the Way

Rube asked for input on his assertion that “Christianity is falsifiable”, after appealing to I Cor. 15:14. Some great discussion ensued, and during the course of that discussion a number of tangents were launched, one of which started with the following statement by a contributor named “Michael Mann”:

In terms of any logical transcendental argument, they could get no further then generic theism i.e, a powerful Creator and Designer is a necessary presupposition of intelligibility

Comment Policy Change

We’ve decided to only allow registered users to post comments, from this point forward. This is more in line with the purpose of the blog – teaching and explanation of the Covenantal/Presuppositional apologetic method. For those wanting to debate; there are many topics listed on the debate page we’d be happy to address; alternatively, you can visit the chat channel.

All user registrations will need to be approved by the administrators. Valid users will be Christians interested in this apologetic method. As always, the chat channel is open, and the contact form is available for any questions or comments. …
