In recent presentations at Fresno State and the University of Arizona, atheists insisted that they just "lack a belief in God", while at the same time rejecting God because they think He is immoral. How should we respond to this? • Is “lacking a belief in God" the proper and helpful definition of atheism? • What questions can you ask atheists who say this? • By what moral standard are atheists judging God to be immoral? • Why atheists have a burden of proof just like Christians • Why Christianity is the best explanation of why reality is the way it is. Frank also answers questions about “love" being a religion, and why do some OT laws apply to us today, but others don’t.
Do atheists just lack a belief in God?

ENCORE: Frank’s recent interview with Ravi Zacharias • May 30, 2020 • Ravi Zacharias
Frank interviews the Great Ravi Zacharias who has been bringing grace and truth all over the world for nearly fifty years. Ravi’s new devotional book is called The Logic of God, and the two apologists discuss many of its insights into this fascinating program. Here are some of the questions Frank asks Ravi: Why did you write The Logic of God? What does it mean to be a moral law apologist? How do you respond to the objection that Christianity is too exclusive? It claims to be the only way! You write that Jesus claimed to be the truth and, therefore, to reject Jesus is to govern yourself with a lie. That’s profound. In my experience taking questions on college campuses, people would rather govern themselves with lies than submit to the truth. What have you found to be the most effective method of dealing with people who don’t want Christianity to be true? In the West, you say that pain and suffering isn’t as a big a problem as the problem of pleasure. What do you mean by that? Young people are struggling with identity, meaning, and purpose. What is the purpose of life? Why are we here? You write, “Jesus does not offer to make bad people good but to make dead people alive.” Unpack that further for us.
