The Atheist & Christian discussion continued–part 5 Reasons for the faith.

To recap this discussion so far.

  1. The first post was on the evangelistic message of both, which you can read here.
  2. The second post was about the falsehood of Atheism; because in reality they can only be Agnositic which you can read here.
  3. The third post looked at the issue of Agnosticism and how many Agnostics actually lean towards a Deistic belief and not that of a Theistic belief – which you can read here.
  4. The fourth post looked at what I term Agnostic Theist which you can read here

I now want to start looking at the variety of reasons for having a Theistic faith..particularly from a Christian perspective. Therefore I will not be making any argument for faith within this post; rather I will lay out the framework for reasons of belief. It’s my intention to show that a Christian faith is not a blind unthinking faith; instead to show that there are many valid reasons for faith.

I make the disclaimer that this list is not exhaustive and that during the course of the future posts, I may delete some headings, include others I have not thought to include, nor may they be in the order that I post them here.

The subjects I am proposing to look at are:

  • How we got the Bible.
  • The historical reliability of the New Testament.
  • Does the Bible contradict itself.
  • Jesus – who did he say he was.
  • Archaeology.
  • Evidence for the supernatural and miracles.
  • Prophecy within the Old Testament.
  • The early church.
  • Reliability of history.
