Hey everyone! Welcome back to TGWAM! This week is our last week of our first series. I hope you all have enjoyed it so far. The first week I talked about Christianity versus Atheism. Atheism isn’t really a religion at all actually. It’s the lack-of. Atheism is the “disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods.” Last week I talked about Islam.
I have always been confused when people describe my faith as a religion. That’s because, at its heart, Christianity is nothing of the sort. It is a relationship – a romance if you will excuse the bluntness.
I guess it ultimately depends on what you are being asked to believe and that should be the foundation of the question. That’s what seems to be reasonable. And we want what is reasonable, at least that is what some claim, but as I’ve argued, reason and being reasonable requires grounding.
