Daily, it seems, I find examples to prove the truth of Romans 1:22, “Claiming to be wise, they became fools.” I will probably start a new category for this.
Today’s example comes from the Debunking Christianity blog, which contains flashes of near-brilliance, as well as some of the most foolish thinking on the planet. The specific post is by a guy named Spencer, who thinks he has a new approach to argue with Christians about the Resurrection. His idea? Because we believe “God raised Jesus from the dead,” Christians not only have to prove the resurrection happened, they also have to prove that God did it. (I guess he thinks that perhaps Jesus was raised from the dead by someone like Satan, who was just playing a joke. )
His point is essentially true, that proving that Jesus resurrected does not logically prove that God was the cause of Jesus’ resurrection. He, of course, fails to realize that there is no way for him to prove that his system of logic proves anything. He also fails to realize that Christians don’t have to prove a thing. He’s the guy trying to disprove something.
