Facing uncomfortable truths

« God is Jesus | Main | A Gracious Defense: How Do You Do It? »



This is the first time I read this blog, but it will most likely be my last if this is the kind of cheerleading they try to pass off as apologetics. Either you take Dawkins at his word that he doesn't know enough about Islam to answer the question or you don't. If you do, the entire article has no value to someone with a sincere interest in apologetics. If you don't, and you decide to believe without evidence that Dawkins was lieing because he didn't feel he had the freedom to safely express himself, then this event still doesn't have apologetic value. What this article really seems like to me is "hey that guy I don't like because I disagree with him was forced to be humble for his own safety, lets revel in it instead of saying something salient to address the issues we disagree about with him." Apologetics is supposed to be a respectful intellectual exercise, not an ad hominem dive into schadenfreude.

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.

I urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. Jude 3

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

For we did not follow cleverly contrived myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; instead, we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 2 Peter 1:16
