Before we get off on the wrong foot, let me take a few minutes to set things straight. The purpose of my writing isn’t to throw around divisive rhetoric, I think that there’s enough of that going on already. Instead I want to provide an opportunity for Christians and non-Christians alike to better understand both each other and their own beliefs. While I don’t think that there’s any shortage of Christian literature out there (for both believers and non-believers) I still come across people almost daily on both sides of the theological fence who can’t empathize with the opposing viewpoint and find it easiest to make over-hasty generalizations while hurling flaming invectives.
Christians who ignorantly insult and mock non-believers bother me just as much as non-believers who do the same to Christians, maybe even more so, and so I’ve thought about this for a long time. I think in most cases problems like these result from a lack of understanding between parties which leads to anger and maybe even hatred (and also the Dark Side of the Force).
So like I said I want to create the opportunity for Christians and non-Christians to better understand one another. To help those who aren’t part of the faith understand Christian beliefs, and to address many of their long-standing questions about contradictions, problems, and inconsistencies in Christianity. Conversely, I hope to give Christians a better idea of a non-Christian worldview, to question their faith and have it emerge stronger for it. If you have a question you’d like me to (attempt to) answer, please leave a comment and I may address it in one of my posts. Or if it’s a more personal matter, feel free to let me know and I’ll send you an email.
Unfortunately, what I won’t be able to do is please everyone, though even if I could I suspect I wouldn’t want to. Now having had my say read on, but remember, caveat emptor.
