I hadn't heard of this guy until the other night, as I was surfing around, but he presents a very interesting defense of the faith.

I think he made some good points. His book "I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist" was actually discussed on the podcast here a while back. I worry though, as I've learned from Moonwood and others, that Christians can get lost or fooled by arguments for God so that we begin to think that our faith depends on arguments and not on the Holy Spirit.

True; our faith is not based on argument, but on the revelation of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

I do believe, however, that God gave us reason, and that reason belongs to God; Reasoning, then, is an act of worship if done correctly.

And God has created us all with our own unique characteristics, so I think we can have different valid reasons for our faith.

Christianity is the red pill - go for it! Seek the truth, wherever it leads you.

I will agree.
