It is an article directed at Christians who are suffering with doubt. If it addressed why we can be certain Christianity is true, it would be interested, but as it is just looking at how Christians can deal with mental issues, why would you imagine I would care at all?You're entitled to believe whatever you want. By the sounds of it, you've already decided to ignore the article and just complain about my having posted it.
It is almost like you have not read the article, and erroneously think it gives certainty to Christian claims.
It does not.
So discuss it.Just as long as you believe that you're right, the truth is obviously immaterial.
Pity. I was hoping you'd actually read the article and discuss it.
I note you did not do that in the OP, or in any subsequent post. What do you think is the most salient point in the article, Steve? Do you think it is true or not? How does it relate to your worldview?
Or do you think quoting the abstract without comment counts as discussing something?
I have no idea where you get that from.And?
You make it sound like we are not humans.
So tell me.Which means that you don't actually know what we're doing.
Point me to the bit of the article you think is most important, and we can discuss it.
You can also tell me why we are already on page two and you have so far failed to do that.
No it is not.Blind faith is the purview of the atheist.
And given the level of evidence I see Christians bring to CARM, that is blind faith.Biblical faith requires doing what Jesus said, and being doers of the biblical teachings, testing all things, abhoring the evil, and clinging to the good.
Am I wrong? Can you tell me the best evidence for the resurrection, Steve? Show me your faith is not blind by showing me I should believe the Bible is true.
Even better, show me in this article! You seem to think atheists are doging the issue in the article - show us how the article provides evidence for Christianity.
That is not blind faith because it is based on intellectually working through it.The atheist mindset is-- I don't actually have to do anything to know whether or not it's true. I can just work through it intellectually and plainly see that it's false, because there's no way that history actually happened like that.
I.e., blind faith.
And you're clearly so good at it.
And thanks, by the way.
Well we will see if you are willing to actually go out on a limb and tell us what you think is the salient point of the article, so we can discuss it. I am guessing you are not.I'd say that you don't actually want to know the truth and prefer pussyfooting around your own disbelief because taking responsibility for yourself is too great a burden to bear.
