Scott Clifton has returned to once again dismantle William Lane Craig’s defenses of his Cosmological Argument.
Just wait until the Atheist Killa gets a hold of this. Then it’s on.
After watching Scott Clifton’s newest video, the A-Unicornist went and checked out WLC’s site (the ironically named ReasonableFaith.org) where WLC had just cautioned Christians about exposing themselves to atheist writing:
I find myself utterly baffled by the cavalier way in which many ill-equipped Christians expose themselves to material which is potentially destructive to them. It’s like someone who doesn’t know how to swim deciding to take the plunge in the heavy surf. Wouldn’t it be the sensible thing to do to first prepare yourself before venturing into dangerous waters?
How very Christian to refer to the possibility of having one’s mind changed as “potentially destructive”. Why on earth would you read those things when they might change your mind? This is a level of pretension rarely seen among atheists, many of whom encourage people to read the bible in its entirety.
I remember vividly that when I first became a Christian I was very careful about what I read because I knew that there was material out there which could be destructive to my newfound faith and that I had a lot, lot more to learn before I was ready to deal with it. Do we forget that there is an enemy of our souls who hates us intensely, is bent on our destruction, and will use anything he can to undermine our faith or render us ineffective in God’s hands? Are we so naïve?
This underscores the problem (and the lifeblood) of Christianity: the goal is to not change your mind, and to not expose yourself to things that may cause you to change your mind. The goal is the maintenance of ignorance which is like commanding people to be less than they could. What a horrible, dehumanizing system.
The A-Unicornist has a good write up on the rest. Check it out.
