Avowed atheist Christopher Hitchens says this about religion in his book God is Not Great: “Religion is man-made. Even the men who made it cannot agree on what their prophets or redeemers or gurus actually said or did.” Richard Dawkins, another atheist, finds the study of theology a complete waste of time, saying “What has ‘theology’ ever said that is of the smallest use to anybody? When has ‘theology’ ever said anything that is demonstrably true and is not obvious? What makes you think that ‘theology’ is a subject at all?”
What these men express is a worldview that is not merely non-Christian but anti-Christian. Challenges like these can occur at any time and in any place to anyone who bears the name of Christ. How would you respond? Do you have the answers to these challenges and others? Or does the prospect of such challenges cause your faith to shrink in fear?
Well, be not afraid. There are solid answers to each and every objection raised by the godless. The Defending the Faith class will equip adults to answer these objections to Christianity. This is class is open to the public.
