Come, Let Us Reason Together – Part 2

by Bill Cook Interestingly, once we had drawn our conclusions, it was accepted that we would believe our results. No one was expected to deny the existence of the ‘truth’ of our conclusions. That is, if we were to test for bromides in our sample, it was accepted that if I got a reaction of a white cloudy precipitate (or whatever the reaction was supposed to be for…

Come, Let Us Reason Together- Part 1

by Bill Cook Sometimes I just can’t resist. I am constantly amazed when I read some things by supposedly intelligent people who write things about Christians and Christianity. A few Friday’s ago on June 13, 2008, the Telegraph, England’s pre-eminent newspaper featured an article purporting that as people’s intelligence increased, faith in God…

Why Right is Right and Wright is Wrong

by Bill Cook In the last several weeks, we have all been bombarded by the media with the news of Senator Obama’s association with a man named Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. Mr. Wright calls himself Reverend, a title reserved for God alone (see Psalm 111:9 -KJV); so I will just call him, “mister.” Mr. Wright has been recorded using some very inflammatory…

Why They Don’t Believe – Part 6

by Bill Walton This article reprinted by permission Some people do not believe in God, and Christ, and the Bible because of the false doctrines that are taught in the name of Christianity.

They have considered the evidence. They have heard the arguments. And they are not convinced. It just seems too incredible to believe that there is a Being who is without beginning and without end who…

Why They Don’t Believe – Part 4

by Bill Walton This article reprinted by permission Some people do not believe in God, and Christ, and the Bible because of their close-minded presuppositions with regard to miracles. Obviously, if there is a God there is the possibility of miraculous intervention in our world. And, obviously, if God created the universe and life in the universe, and if god inspired men…

Why They Don’t Believe – Part 3

by Bill Walton This article reprinted by permission Some people do not believe in God, and Christ, and the Bible because they are overly impressed with science and scientists. But the fact is, science does not have the answer to the ultimate questions of life. And there are those within the ranks of the religious skeptics in the scientific community who have been candid…

Why They Don’t Believe – Part 2

by Bill Walton This article reprinted by permission Some people do not believe in God, and Christ, and the Bible because they are unwilling to believe anything that would condemn their ungodly way of living. This is exactly the charge the apostle Paul makes in his letter to the church at Rome: “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and…

Why They Don’t Believe – Part 1

by Bill Walton This article reprinted by permission I have sometimes been asked: “If the evidence supporting our faith in God is so strong and so convincing, why doesn’t everyone believe?” So, in the next few articles on this page, I’m going to tell you why they don’t believe. And there are a variety of reasons. In the first place, many…
