Recognize and Refute
November 9, 2009
“‘Well, I do believe some things,’ conceded
Father Brown; ‘and therefore, of course, I don’t believe
other things.’” – G. K. Chesterton
As Christians, we are surrounded by philosophies, beliefs, and
attitudes that are contrary to the truth revealed in Scripture.
It’s important that we learn to recognize and refute them
when we encounter them. Hone your reasoning skills by developing
responses to the following statements:
- If it feels good, it can’t
- There are no moral absolutes.
- Jesus was a good teacher, but not God.
- There are many paths to God.
- You are intolerant if you say someone is wrong in what
they believe or how they live.
- There is no God.
- This life is all we have.
- We are all part of a single, unified divine consciousness.
- Since God is love, there is no hell.
P.S. If you would like to learn more about how to answer these
issues, I strongly encourage you to explore one of my favorite
sites, Stand to Reason, at www.str.org. Enjoy and grow strong!
