Case for Christ

In Lee Strobels "a case for Christ" A case is made to try and prove that the Bible is not just a fantasy book. Nonbelievers believe that the Bible is full of tall tales. Lee Strobel does his best to prove and get evidence that it is more than just a book. He is trying to prove that it 's fact and nonfiction.

Do you Strobel went on a two-year face extravaganza journey. He is a very educated man having done to Oxford and Harvard. He is a lawyer and he decided to take on one of the hardest cases it 's not the actual hardest case ever. He set a goal to prove or at least tried to prove that the Bible, basically the whole New Testament, what 's fact.The

I am glad that there is evidence that many events are historical fact in the bible. It is hard for me to put words on my feelings for this book and I mean no offence. I have had much conflict and argument throughout my childhood and life, so that is maybe why I am almost angered that the bible has to be argued about. I’ve never like it when preachers try to sell their ideas to me in a way that I feel bad at the end of the day if I don’t believe them myself. Im a very open minded person but I don’t like when people force feed me their opinions, even if there is books full of evidence. I guess I just don’t want to hear it. Maybe that makes me unteachable to some people? Maybe that makes me stubborn? But I would rather they give me suggestions and guide me instead of trying to prove me wrong. I got a very argumentative and angry vibe from this book. With doubts myself of certain things I believe and have been taught my whole life I possibly could have taken Strobel’s words much harsher that he intended, but I’m sure others feel the same as I do. I do not believe none believers would graciously accept Christianity after reading this book. I doubt they would ever finish the book to start with to be perfectly honest. I think they would be confused or pushed farther away from Christianity and any relationship to God. For starters, many non-believers tend to not be atheists. I mean Atheists are so hard to win to Christ because they already have a belief that there is the higher power and are stubborn in that, just like any strong Christian would very unlikely be driven to the thought of no God and this world is just it for humanity. In some ways, Atheism makes more sense they Christianity. But to me Christianity isn’t supposed to totally make sense. That’s why we must have faith. To me, my relationship with God isn’t me trying to prove he is out there or that Jesus really did

    Lastly, Christians only care about you becoming a Christian. This affects many Christians because honestly, some could care less about whether or not you wished to become Christian. All of these stereotypes have caused such as lack of information, this then affects real Christians to be afraid of their…

    Dawkins claims, “they appeal to faith” and “faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because the lack of evidence” (e). Dawkins is explaining the phenomenon that we call faith. He describes that people back-up religion with faith even though faith shows a lack of evidence. We must therefore question whether faith is good enough to be evidence of Gods existence. My own view on faith is that it is not a strong enough argument for proof of Gods existence.…

    He seemed adamant in believing the negative and bias opinion that psychology is not an appropriate form of care and assistance. His complete lack of respect or view for another opinion has greatly inhibited him from knowledge that could refute his claims. Also, I find it odd that he stated in the beginning that there is no such thing as “Christian” psychology but then goes on to talk about how to be a real Christian Psychologist. Before speaking to someone from John MacArthur’s church I would want a more current knowledge of his stance as well as the indivudal beliefs of those I am speaking with. Although though they attend the chuirch that does not neccersily mean that adopt the same ideals on everything.…

    Not having a relationship with God makes us not know or understand our purpose in this world. So, if a person says that there is no need for God because science reveal something about the universe that we are living in is sad. Especially now that we do not have a great relationship with God is the time that we need Him to be a part of our daily lives, and put trust in science will not restore our relationship with God. After feeling sad that there is people who do not believe in Christianity because of science, I think this statement is a wakeup call to all Christians. Meaning that we need to take the responsibility and educated other about believing in God.…

    P3: Those who do not believe in a god do not believe that God can guide our morals. C: Therefore, religious teachings are not an infallible source. This would mean that religious teachings are not an infallible guide, because to be “infallible” means to be incapable of error. Due to there being multiple ways to interpret religious teachings that would mean that they are not free of error. To reexamine the argument in favor, I would say that it is a valid argument, because if the premises are true then the conclusion would also logically be true.…

    In reaction to the bold statements, many became uncomfortable and began to share their thoughts. Outraged by the supposed findings, Luke Timothy Johnson publicized his reaction again. "People have no idea how fraudulent people who claim to be scholars can be," said Johnson in an effort to discredit their work. He considers the findings to be dangerous because "Americans generally have an abysmal level of knowledge of the Bible. In this world of mass ignorance, to have headlines proclaim that this or that fact about [Jesus] has been declared untrue by supposedly scientific inquiry has the effect of the gospel.…

    When first reading the book I was frustrated with C.S. Lewis. The way he explained things made me feel as if he was trying to reach out to me, and any other reader, as if we were completely clueless to Christianity. But, as I continued to read I realized that if he were not to write like that I still would be as confused about my faith as I was before I opened the book. C.S.…

    This problem proves that there is a separate standard of right and wrong that has nothing to do with God or His commands. Most believers want to acknowledge an idea that right and wrong was created by their religion and God because they think they are not religious if they don’t associate right and wrong with God. Since this theory fails to connect morality with God, then believers of Him would dismiss it. This dismissal of the theory should not alter their faith in God, though. Many scholars and believers, like St. Thomas Aquinas, refused the Divine Command Theory for this reason but still believe in God and His instructions.…

    I completely disagree with this argument because it is completely based off of the fact that faith has to be true. I am okay with other people believing in faith because it is a huge part of many people’s lives. However, I am not a person that is going to believe this. I think that if someone believes that faith is the same thing as natural knowledge, they are going to obviously have strong religious beliefs. However, natural knowledge is not the same thing as faith; they are completely different.…

    This makes it extremely hard for me to take in any opinions stating that God doesn't, could not, or might not exist. I just simply was not raised to believe it. Other kids grow up in families that aren't as focused on religion so their own opinions stray away from a God. In this case, I can see why some people might believe what Dennett is saying in the book. Plantinga says that science and religion are compatible, but he switches the argument to focusing more on Evolution vs.…
