Can Atheism Ground Reason?
In a recent video, Sean McDowell discusses atheism and how it fails to explain reason. “If atheism is true, it undermines any confidence we can have in our reasoning faculties because they’re a result of a blind, purposeless, immaterial process,” Sean McDowell says.
“But why can Christians believe in the reliability of our cognitive faculties? Because God Himself is reasonable. … We are made in the image of a God Who’s reasonable Himself.”
7 powerful passages from The Book of Acts that show that the Apostle Paul used evidence and reason to turn the world upside down for Jesus.
Well-meaning Christians argue that using evidence and reason doesn’t bring people to faith. We’re just supposed to preach the gospel and let the Holy Spirit do his job. Paul is the model missionary, and he said that preaching Christ with eloquent speech would empty the cross of its power. (1 Corinthians 1:17)
