Case-Making 101: Why Do We Need Christian Case-Makers?

by Teri Dugan

Just as the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle are difficult to put together without the picture on the box top, the many diverse pieces of life make no sense without some kind of unifying big picture. The question is, does anyone have the box top to this puzzle we call life?  -Dr. Frank Turek, author of “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist

This is the beginning of the second year of blog posts at Truth, Faith and Reason. As a high school science teacher, coach and former agnostic I began searching for the truth over ten years ago, looking for that box top. Finding it led to sharing the outcome of my quest on this blog and in the Case for Christianity classes. The truth is out there, as a famous TV show once boasted, if we just take the time to look for it. I think we owe it to ourselves and our loved ones to do just that.

We get so caught up in our daily lives that until we crash into a devastating circumstance we don’t stop to think about how finite our time is here. Ideas have consequences and what we think about God, Jesus and the afterlife has huge implications for our lives. Doesn’t it make sense to spend some quality time investigating what is true? The focus of this website is to provide information and evidence that will help us understand truth.

Truth about life and all that we do is usually grounded on what we think of these five main topics, the answers depend on the existence of God and what one believes about Him:

  1. Origin: Where did we come from?
  2. Identity: Who are we?
  3. Meaning and purpose: Why are we here?
  4. Morality: How should we live?
  5. Destiny and eternity: Where are we going?

Classical Christianity holds the best answers as we will see…
