Faith & fact

Lots of people think Christianity is about taking a blind leap of faith into the dark. There can’t possibly be any objective reason for believing in Jesus who supposedly came and went more than 2000 years ago, some argue. Where’s the proof? This blog will show how faith is not a mindless pursuit of religion. Faith, whether it is in atheism or any other framework of thinking, must be grounded in fact for it to have any reasonable justification. And when we examine Jesus – what He said and what He did – the evidence demands a response. Many have argued against the validity of the Bible and the practical working out of that in Christianity (those arguments will be raised and dealt with in turn). May you personally come to see how the biblical worldview is a rational system of belief that is as much about intellectual stimulation as it is about spiritual transformation.
