Losing Faith in Faith

My last post just before this one, was a PRO-Christian post, in favor of Christianity. This one isn’t. Dan Barker was a Christian but later on he left the faith. He writes about it in his book: Losing Faith in Faith. I was a little reluctant to post this, but as I’ve said before, what you choose to believe or not believe is entirely your own doing. No matter what your religion, philosophy or belief, can it stand up to the embaressing or tough questions that others might raise against it?  If you are a Christian, have you read any skeptical books? Likewise, if you are an Atheist or of some other Faith, have you read any PRO-Christian books? I think that’s fair. Make your own investigation and decide for yourself. One more thing: Barker does give footnotes and references. Do you know of any author who can disprove or counter his footnotes?  Norm Geisler? (Giesler?)  Ron Rhodes? Dan Comfort? To look at it another way,  C.S. Lewis was not a Christian but later he became one, so these things can work both ways.     https://www.amazon.com/Losing-Faith-Preacher-Atheist/dp/1877733075/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1516476834&sr=8-1&keywords=losing+faith+in+faith

One thought on “Losing Faith in Faith”

  1. Greetings! 🙂
    Good questions!
    I am reminded of a saying, something close to:
    “For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don’t believe, no proof is enough.”
    I cant remember who said that.

    As for filters and distortions, they can exist on both sides of issues and beliefs. Everyone, myself included, should strive to be fair and to be willing to confront those: “well? WHAT ABOUT that?” types of objections. About anything! On either side. Most people simply avoid talking about it and change the subject.
    I hafta wonder how inwardly confident they really are, whether it’s Religion, Politics, Psychology or anything else.

    Anyway, that quote above, is another reason that I think its a good idea to ask questions and read info on both sides.
    While none of us can read every book, we can at least do some investigating, pro and con.
