I’ve been impressed lately with Dr. William Lane Craig. He’s a Christian who debates renowned atheists on campus universities all around the world. My friend Mark Mittelberg turned me onto him, and I’ve enjoyed the few debates I’ve had the time to watch.
He doesn’t just debate these atheists. He annihilates them. The atheists typically stroll to the podium with their hands in their pockets, hardly “stooping” to prepare against Dr. Craig “the Christian,” spewing their canned anti-Christian attacks against people of faith.
Time and time again, Dr. Craig (respecting his audience enough to take his opponents seriously) clobbers them with evidence, logic, reason and sometimes wit. I watched a live Internet debate two weeks ago on Notre Dame campus with renowned atheist Sam Harris. I actually started to feel sorry for Harris. He was humiliated. (See here and search for the debate with Sam Harris.)
Yesterday was Palm Sunday. Christ rode into Jerusalem, knowing full well he was going to take on the religious legalists of his day, perhaps to his own death. The following shows how much evidence there is of the magnificence of the Christian story. It is very real. Enjoy!
