The Rationality Of The Christian Faith

Knowing God Is Real


The Roles of Evidence & Experience In Faith

Contrary to the claims of rationalists and atheists, Christians are not irrational idiots who use religion as a crutch, but men and women of faith based on -

•  RATIONAL EXAMINATION OF EVIDENCE


   Objectively
from Creation, the Bible,  the historical life, death, resurrection & ascension of Jesus      Christ; the nation of Israel  &  the growth of the Church.
   Subjectively of God at work transforming the lives of individuals

• EXPERIENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

   in a supernatural work of conviction of sin,  conversion & transformation of people's lives.

Evidence Of A Genuine Work Of The Holy Spirit In A Person

One of the ways you know if someone has experienced a genuine work of the Holy Spirit is if their lives show a definite change from wanting to do things God hates¬†to wanting to go God’s way.¬†

Check off your own experiences from the list below.

A desire to read the Bible and hear what God wants to say to me
A hatred of some of the things I used to love doing
A love of other people, especially Christian brothers and sisters  
A desire to spend time getting to know Jesus better
A sense I really am a child of the Living God by His grace and mercy
Knowing God has forgiven my sins & that he loves me
A new sense of wonder at the universe & God’s creation 
A recognition of what it cost God to forgive my sins
Experiencing God answering prayers for individuals
