On February 5, 2018 I wrote a post called “This Is Apologetics: 30 Questions for Non-Christians.”
It has been, by far, my most popular post. Until today. all the feedback I received was from Christians. However, today I was pleasantly to discover that a self-proclaimed “Godless liberal humanist” called “Dr Sarah” has begun to reply to my questions.
Read the first installment of her answers here.
I probably won’t be able to take the time to respond to all of her responses, but I would encourage any of my readers of a presuppositionalist persuasion to continue the dialogue with Dr Sarah. This would be a good time to remind everyone about what 1 Peter 3:15-16, the charter passage for Christian apologetics, says:
...but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, ready at any time to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you. Yet do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that when you are accused, those who disparage your good conduct in Christ will be put to shame. (CSB, emphasis added).
May our replies to Dr Sarah uphold the holiness of Jesus, defend our hope well, and be overwhelmingly gentle and respectful.
Only the Lord knows what impact these questions will have on Dr Sarah and other non-Christians.
It’s my prayer that they would drive her and many others toward reflection on the nature of their unbelief in God and, ultimately, toward his Son, Jesus Christ, through belief in whom we are reconciled to God.
