Testimony

I grew up outside of the church and was fairly critical of Christianity and religion. When I realized my beliefs about religion were acquired from pop-media and were contradictory, I decided to investigate it rationally. I was shocked to discover there were arguments and evidence for Christianity, but I doubted it could be true because no Christian I had ever known mentioned it and I thought that if it was true, that’s all they would talk about. In an attempt to refute the Christian claims, I sought out the people I thought were the smartest, most honest, and least biased people in the religion debate: atheist academics. To my surprise, I found that the atheist and other non-Christian arguments could not refute the Christian arguments and were not nearly as strongly supported by the evidence. As a result of the evidence, I became a Christian in 2005 and have been passionately involved in apologetics ever since.
