Why Atheism Fails

What is atheism?

If you ask an atheist this question most often they will carefully explain to you that atheism is ‘a lack of belief in God’.

They’re very sensitive about this.

A lack of belief is not the same thing as non-belief. To claim God ‘does not exist’ is an absolute statement, and one which is virtually impossible to prove deductively.

So the atheist will simply say they ‘lack belief’ and will say this is mostly because of a ‘lack of sufficient evidence’ (agnosticism).

Some atheists are happy to flat-out deny the existence of God and explicitly deny He exists, but most do not.

In practise however, virtually all atheists live life as if God does not exist and harbour a characteristic antagonism towards religious belief.

An Introduction to Creationism

What Is Creationism?

Creationism or, Biblical Creationism, states that God created the world from nothing in six days as stated in Genesis chapter 1.

According to Christians the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God, the one and only God who exists outside of time (because He created time).

Of course it’s no secret that within Christianity there are many different interpretations of the Bible and what it says.

But in general if you’re a Christian then, hopefully, you believe the Bible is true.

That means the whole Bible, including the very first part. This should not really be a particularly controversial thing right?

What’s wrong with Christians believing in their own Bible?

Apologetics and the Gender Gap: Why Men Hate Going to Church and Why it Matters

Introduction

When I was a new Christian, I noticed something off, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. There was something going on and I knew it had something to with men. First of all, I noticed there is a gender gap in the Church.

But there was other things too.

The way the Bible was presented in any church I’ve been to since I was a child just didn’t… eh. As an adult I’ve noticed that often only one side of the Bible is presented… the nice side.
