I was just watching a debate that was so silly that I could not finish watching it. The atheist that was debating the Christian was an absolute hot head! If that guy wasn’t a villain in WWE wrestling he missed his calling!
Even though he personally admitted that experts had been giving him an alternative definition for the word faith, from his definition every week for the last twenty years, he still insisted on his definition being right and everyone else’s being wrong.
This has the effect of crippling any honest investigation of the beliefs of Christianity. Even IF all those scholars and all those believers, and all those pieces of ancient literature with the word that means faith were wrong, we still believe in our definition, for the sake of an honest discussion and investigation of our beliefs you must believe that we believe it.
It is the same with other belief systems. Their beliefs may be mistaken and may be objectively wrong, but we must believe that they believe it before we can any kind of productive discussion with them about which of our beliefs are objectively right, and which are not.
Are you looking for a Christian book that will help you grow stronger in the faith? Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis is a modern classic that is helpful learning about basic Christianity I highly recommend it.
