The Christian Mind: Irrational

Featured Image -- 37143

My FEATURED BLOGGER this week is D. Patrick Collins, a creative and articulate writer who’s current series on apologetics (arguing the rationality of biblical truths), “The Christian Mind,” provides terrific food for thought–and maybe even prayer. ~Blessings till it hurts, Mitch

D. Patrick Collins

If anything has led to the loss of religious faith in the modern world, it is the idea that “science” has proven that God does not exist. Much of the disdain in our society toward religious faith I spoke about in our last post can be traced back to this idea.

Which may not be obvious. But to the extent society believes that God is an irrational concept, those who believe in God will be seen not only as violators of human freedom but also violators of compassion and justice.

  2. I’m an agnostic but I lean heavily in favor of a supreme intelligence, an initiator of all that we puny humans can perceive. I think many scientists are of this view. My argument with religion is that there are too many “Holy Books” all claiming to be the directly, literally, inspired word of that supreme being. Those books are fine for metaphorical lessons but arguing the meaning of “scripture” is like the proverbial, “how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?:”

      I felt the same way about the world’s religious writings, Vernon. The turning point for me was the words and character of Jesus. To borrow from Sesame Street: One of these things was not like the others.

    Good points, good read. Everything is faith based. I always ask people who don’t believe in God to prove objectively if their minds are working correctly and to their surprise they see that they are using faith to disprove something to which they stand on 🙈.

    Hi Mitch,

    There is so much that exists that can’t be measured in our limited means. Thank the Lord. God is so much bigger and real than things in the temporal. There is nothing man made to measure that.

    In Christ,

    Gary
