Arguments when I was a Believer

 So I woke up this morning and saw this tweet in my feed that prompted enough thought in me (and the fact that it's a quiet Sunday morning and the kids are playing nicely) that I decided to write on the topic.

This is a very interesting question! I started to think about it and it made me realize that there weren't any explicit arguments that had me believing. There certainly were some that I was effectively indoctrinated with that aimed to reinforce my faith in a bubble, but nothing like the arguments I'm intimately familiar with now. I also distinctly recall being entirely unimpressed with apologetic arguments when taking a "evangelism training" seminar/class at my church. 

 So lets get into the specifics here.

Resurrection Discussion with Randal Rauser and Robert L. White

So last night I took place in a informal discussion with Randal on Robert L. White's YouTube channel.

I had a very good time and more importantly I think we demonstrated what a polite, thoughtful exchange can look like, even though we don't agree.

I hope you take the time to watch, Randal and I spoke for about an hour as he had a night class to teach after our debate, and then Robert and I spoke for another 20 minutes or so.

There were a few things I think the debate clarified for me and some issues I'd like to address in a future post, so keep an eye out!
