Adult Sunday School Offering: I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist

Faith is a big deal to us as Christians.  We believe certain truths.  But the term “faith” is often wrongly used against Christians as if to imply that we are somehow embracing faith contrary to reason.  Christians are seen as a bunch of dumb rubes who believe all sorts of nonsensical myths that no modern scientific person could be foolish enough to embrace.  Educated people will certainly disbelieve.  Really smart people will embrace atheism, or, at least, agnosticism.  This is absurd, and is itself intellectually bankrupt.

Christians don’t believe despite the evidence.  We believe consistent with the evidence.  The shoe is very much on the other foot.  It is the atheist who must make a blind leap of faith contrary to the evidence.  Indeed, it takes far more faith to embrace the false religion of atheism than it does to embrace the Christian faith.  We will be considering some of the most important arguments in support of a Christian worldview in this survey of Christian apologetics. We will make use of the book “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist” by Norman Geisler and Frank Turek, but we’ll go far beyond the pages of the book as well.  The topic is one that Pastor Rich has taught at the seminary level and has a great interest in.  Join us Sunday mornings for this class!
