ex-apologist: Lovering on Immoral Theistic Belief

Lovering, Rob. “On the Morality of Having Faith that God Exists“, Sophia 51:1 (2012), 17-30.

Abstract: Many theists who identify themselves with the Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Judaism, and Islam) maintain that it is perfectly acceptable to have faith that God exists. In this paper, I argue that, when believing that God exists will affect others, it is prima facie wrong to forgo attempting to believe that God exists on the basis of sufficient evidence. Lest there be any confusion: I do not argue that it is always wrong to have faith that God exists, only that, under certain conditions, it can be.
