Have You Read "Atheism, The Case Against 'God'"? p2?
Topic: The case study method
May 21, 2019 / By Ethelinda Question:
I wanted do answer 'brokentogether' who asked in return if I read The Case for Christ, written by Lee Strobel.
Yes I have, when I began my bible study I wanted sources far and wide.
To be honest, I was disappointed by this Strobel, he came across like an Elementary school teacher reading to children about Santa. His methods were similar to the way Jehovahs Witnesses speak. Something like "when i read that passage from Paul I felt it was awe inspiring, how could this not be true??!!" Hardly convincing.
Aleks : exactly, i also wondered how he could be a journalist. He seemed more like a sunday school teacher who was trying to seem unbiased but failing miserably as he jumped to one early false conclusion after another

lol, i read the case for christ too.
i stopped at about 45 inaccurate conclusions.
i try to get my kids (i'm a teacher) to understand exactly how to draw conclusions from evidence. how you can only tell what MUST be true as opposed to what MAY be true. this guy simply jumps too far in his conclusions. its not logical in the least.
i had a really hard time believing that the guy was a journalist.
but it was an easy read. won't change an atheist's mind though since there's nothing particularly convincing in it.

The Death of God movement was an interesting theological phenomenon in the 60s. Gabriel Vahanian was another of its major authors. It's kind of passé now. But those old things are always exciting to people discovering them for the first time. I think Altizer is still around and still writing theology.

What does God call it? Preach love too you? Lets see what God says, to do with you.
You have unbeliever's. Chaff, Scoffers.
An Atheist is a scoffer. The WORD of God, clearly tells you the filhty rags they are, and to stay away from them, and avoid them. We are NOT to plant seeds. God knows it is useless and that is why he tells us, "You stand firm against them" ( Jer.17:8 14:1 Iah 44:4) You disassociate them completely. Any Believer that does not abide in God's own Word, does not know God, according too God Himself. Atheists are "chaff" A simile of the wretchedness of the wicked. Chaff is carried away by the lightest wind, and it's removal brings about cleansing by extracting what is utterly useless. (Ruth 1:22). They will NOT stand in the judgment. They will NOT be able to withstand God's wrath when He judges.( Paslams 76:7 Exra 9:15). This is not my opinion, this is God's very own Words, in the Bible. You know, the BIble? The same Bible atheist scholars quote. There is a reason God, said this. Psalms.1.1-3 Jer. 17:8 14:1 12. 1-2 18:9-10 Prov1.10-19 (vs 5) scoffers:(atheists) those who ridicule God and definatley reject His Law. Prov 1.:22 Ruth 1:22 Jer 18:7 (pull down-destroy) 1:10 (evil-calamity) 18:11
godly wisdom here, declare the final outcome of the two "ways". The paths of "sinners" (unbelievers) and the "way of the righteous. he speaks progressively of assoociation with the ungodly and participation in they're ungodly ways.
God said it. End of Story. Jesus Himself said "Let the dead bury they're dead".
Use all the Internet and Dictionaries they want to and call themselves anything they wish. God "defined" what they are by His own words.
They can hang a dog tag* around they're neck in the pits if hell itself and separate each other by name categorically.
God's Word said it. By God's definition. There is NO opinion.
Hate? Where do you get hate? If God's TRUTH is hate too you, then, so be it. You and God, can and will discuss the means of your sciptural interpretation, consisting with a man-made defacto on a motion of plea bargin I guess. I dunno.
Faithful Christians are unlikely to look beyond the bible for answers about the human purpose and future. Instead, they recognize that God's thinking is superior to any originating from man (or from Satan).
(2 Timothy 4:3-5) For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the healthful teaching, but, in accord with their own desires, they will accumulate teachers for themselves to have their ears tickled; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, whereas they will be turned aside to false stories. You, though, keep your senses in all things, suffer evil, do the work of an evangelizer, fully accomplish your ministry.
(2 Thessalonians 2:1-3) We request of you not to be quickly shaken from your reason nor to be excited either through an inspired expression or through a verbal message or through a letter... Let no one seduce you in any manner, because it will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness gets revealed
(2 Peter 2:1) However, there also came to be false prophets among the people, as there will also be false teachers among you. These very ones will quietly bring in destructive sects and will disown even the owner
(1 John 2:18) Young children, it is the last hour, and, just as you have heard that antichrist is coming, even now there have come to be many antichrists; from which fact we gain the knowledge that it is the last hour.

I wasn't that pleased with the arguments given in 'The Case Against God'. I am an atheist, so my problem isn't his message, it was the fact that I don't agree with his philosophical position, which is fairly close to Aristote's views. He could have done a much better job without using a very outdated philosophy to support his arguments. The worst part was in his discussion of the arguments from first cause. he actually came out and said that the universe has always been around! He seemed to have no knowledge of the Big Bang or what Quantum Mechanics might say about the use of cause and effect.
OTOH, Strobel is just stupid.
