THE 10 MOST COMMON OBJECTIONS TO CHRISTIANITY
Answering the “Questions of seekers, and the objections of Critics...”
1. “I Don’t believe in God”
*Atheism requires omniscience (all knowledge)
*Agnosticism is contradictory (Self-defeating)
Evidence for God’s Existence:
*Every “effect” has a Cause
*Creation requires a Creator
*Designs require a Designer
*Communication requires a Communicator
*No moral law without a “Lawgiver”
God is Personal:
*Universe had a beginning
*This was intentionally caused (an uncaused effect is an impossibility)
*The “Causer” must be personal, because He created persons
(If God is not personal, He is less developed than we)
2. “How is Jesus different from other great men of history?”
Jesus is unique in His: *Prophesied coming *birth *life *actions *Words *death *Resurrection
Jesus is absolutely unique, by virtue of Who He was; What He did; What He claimed about Himself; What He did to substantiate those claims.
3. “Aren’t there many roads to heaven? Don’t all paths ultimately lead to the same place?”
*What is your authority?
*Jesus taught that He is the only way of salvation:
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV)
(Resurrection confirmed Who He was;
Resurrection confirmed what He taught)
“Pluralism is a disease in the minds of the terminally mediocre.”
Prof Stanley Hauerwas
4. “How do we know that Jesus rose from the dead? And if He did, how is that relevant to me?”
*Miracles are possible
*Scientific laws are descriptive of what usually happens,
not prescriptive what must happen.
*Resurrection is a miracle account, supported by sound historical evidence.
*Resurrection confirms what Jesus taught about the spiritual condition of all persons.
5. "I've heard that the Bible is full of errors..."
Divine Inspiration is evidenced by:
Biblical Unity Indestructibility historical accuracy scientific accuracy fulfilled prophecy life-changing power amazing circulation
6. "I don't think I'm a sinner. I'm not so bad."
Refuted by man's awareness of objective morality, and man's knowledge that He has transgressed this moral law
Refuted by the Bible (Ecc. 7:20, Is. 53:6, Romans 3:23, and others) a book shown to be divinely inspired
7. "Why is there evil in the world?"
*Freewill actions, mankind’s sinful deeds
*This question presupposes knowledge of objective morality;
(If there is no God, it makes no sense to complain about vice, or to praise virtue) *Evil defeated by Christ, will be fully eradicated one day,
Resurrection is our guarantee of this
8. "Christians are all hypocrites."
-Correct. So are non-Christians. You're in the group either way.
-Existence of counterfeit does not negate the reality of the genuine
-We are not asking you to invite a Christian into your heart, but Christ (Who is most certainly NOT a hypocrite!)
9. "Christianity has spread many evils in the world. Religion has been
responsible for many of history's cruelest deeds."
*Crimes done in the name of religion do not in any way represent the teachings of true Christianity
*Atrocities resulted when the pure teachings of Jesus were replaced with worldly ambition, and lust for political power.
10. "God is love. I don't believe God would condemn any one."
*make sure that the God you are believing in is, in fact, the true God (Whose teaching on salvation is correct? Either Jesus' is right (and He rose from the dead, or sinful, rebellious man is correct. A person who can predict, orchestrate, and carry out His own resurrection, carries pretty strong authority!) *God is not obligated to change Who He is, because of what we may wrongly assume. *We are obligated to amend our lives, in light of what God has plainly disclosed. *Truth of Christianity is not contingent upon how many have, or have not heard. *You can't say that you haven't heard!

I try to keep God first because the Bible tells us if we
put him first all the rest will be provided.

16. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
17. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but to save the world through him. NIV
