Re: I would fail Abraham’s test

I agree with it. It is not well supported in the Bible though.

If it's not well supported in the Bible, why do you believe it?

Re: Apologetics Isn’t for the Lost

but no one is reasoning their way to gods or ghosts that doesn't already believe they exist.

I think you need to believe that it is possible for God to exist to get there, but not already believing he does exist.

Re: I would fail Abraham’s test

So what do you think about Craig's belief in an Age of Accountability?

I agree with it. It is not well supported in the Bible though. Besides the verses already quoted, there's Deut 1:39

Re: I would fail Abraham’s test

But I reject your faulty premise

That Jesus is the fullest revelation of God?

Re: I would fail Abraham’s test

What did you think of the article?

I think apologetics could help her ;-)

She says she's a follower of Jesus, but doesn't seem to like God very much. There's some serious disconnect there.

Re: Apologetics Isn’t for the Lost

The context of the whole original article by WLC makes it clear what he thinks of arguments for God. The full quote in it's immediate context:

Re: Apologetics Isn’t for the Lost

I think he is sincere in his belief. But the arguments he gives are not the reason for his belief. He is convinced by "The inner workings of the holy spirit." Looking solely at arguments and evidence, he says "The person who follows [more]

I would fail Abraham’s test (and I bet you would too)

Not surprising. What faith tests have you passed?

Re: Score one for science

Re: discussion of Jesus

Ehrman is not a Christian, and that was the point of quoting his critique of Carrier (or Carriers thesis)
