Disproving Christianity is Like Killing a Zombie
by Jason Wisdom
Killing a zombie isn’t tricky, but it does require something specific–you have to destroy the brain. You will barely slow a zombie down by breaking his arms and legs. Even if you have a sword, you will have to get dangerously close to becoming a zombie yourself just to remove his limbs. Why not just swing for the neck? Cutting off the head will make the brain an easy target. Or, if you have a gun, you can pump his chest full of bullets, but at best, you will only take a few chunks out of him. He won’t stop coming. Why not just aim for the head? If you kill the brain, you kill the zombie.
If you spend all of your time trying to wound zombies rather than trying to kill them, one has to wonder about your motives. Maybe you are just interested in landing a combination of non-fatal blows that will render the zombie harmless. You don’t need to kill him. If you take out his arms, legs, and teeth, then you can pretty much forget about him. Or maybe you want to send a message to the zombie community at large that they are easy to take apart, and because of this, they ought to just give up.

Disproving Christianity is (a bit) like killing a zombie. It isn’t tricky, but it does require something specific–you have to destroy the resurrection of Jesus. You won’t deal a fatal blow to Christianity by pointing to difficult passages in Scripture. Even if you have a knock-down argument, you will have to get dangerously close to admitting that the God of the Bible exists, and did the things it says He did, just to argue that He is immoral. Why not just argue that God does not exist? That is like cutting off the head. Or if you have extensive knowledge of Scripture, you can take shots at the Bible by firing off supposed contradictions, but at best, you will only take a few chunks out of the doctrine of inerrancy. As long as the details surrounding the resurrection of Jesus are reliable, Christianity won’t go down…
