And his writing accomplishes the same thing as the banana video: It makes Christians look foolish and completely uneducated.
In other words, it just provides fodder for atheists.
Like when he asks this question:
What is it that keeps most people from coming to Christ?
Of course, there are plenty of reasons.
Lack of evidence of his divinity.
Bad experiences with his followers.
The Biblical disconnect with so much of reality.
And so many more.
Now, let’s see what Comfort says:
That question probably has a three-fold answer: 1. Pride, 2. Love for sin, and 3. A lack of knowledge.
That answer is followed by Bible verses. Because, you know, that’ll change your mind.
There’s also the typical anti-Science rants:
It’s because of this principle [that new knowledge changes our beliefs] that science can never be absolutely certain of anything. It can only believe something according to the knowledge it has at present. And even when it gets more knowledge, it still can’t be absolutely certain it has the truth, because future information may refute what they think they know to be true. What science believes now may be laughed at in 100 years time. Some think that’s a good thing, because it shows that science is forever open to change. The only good thing about it, is that is shows us where we should put our trust. God alone speaks absolute truth, because He has absolute knowledge. Science can never say that something is a “fact.” God can and does. That’s why we can have absolute trust about anything He says in His Word. It’s as solid as a rock (solider, if there’s such a word). Those that trust in Him need never be disappointed, disillusioned, or discouraged. And that’s a fact.
Therefore, science is worthless.
It’s nothing you haven’t heard before.
But it’s always going to be good for a laugh.
It’d be nice to see some Christians commenting on his site about how misguided his rants are. Or just denouncing his form of evangelism in general.
