I read a little book today which was a tome against Christianity. It was at times compelling. But the author’s presuppositions against the existence of God drove his conclusions.
…also driving this guy’s conclusions is his failure to understand the purpose of the Bible: God speaks to us to help us understand that we are broken and he offers to fix us.
another observation is that his tome, a letter to Christians, is written as though the sample data he uses, and the texts he chooses to use as representative, to create this massive population who believe what he says they believe is, in reality about 47 people… I say this because the VAST variety of sources that he draws from are 987 (I exaggerate of course) circles in a complicated Venn diagram in which there are (I exaggerate again to push my thought) 47 people in common on the whole planet…
This book though, has compelling arguments that will confuse lots of people who are woefully ignorant of God and His message…
It reminded me of how important it is
to know WHY one believes
WHAT they believe.
