Faith-Defend like a Boss: Contra Fry

Contra Fry: How to effectively defend faith in God {against atheist rants}

Let’s be real: traveling across the landscape of unbelief can be dispiriting.

Apologetics Road TripIt takes endurance to listen to anti-God rants and poor logic; it takes patience to sift through the tangle of assertion, assumption and accusation.

{Sigh.}

Anyone who’s tried to have a reasonable discussion about Christianity knows this painfully well: fielding the same questions over and over can get old fast. Especially when no one is listening. {Why won’t they see??}

bagpipesI have something today that might help: if you’re feeling a bit jaded or you’re discouraged that a lie “gets halfway round the world before the truth can put its shoes on” (as Spurgeon said back in a pre-internet age, even) – I found this refreshing defense of the faith by Scottish apologist, David Robertson.

He’s not at all impressed with the angry atheist rantings of Stephen Fry’s viral video. My spirit was greatly cheered by Robertson’s unapologetic apologetics – I hope yours will be, too.


Robertson is doing more than taking on the latest challenge to faith: he’s modeling how you and I can do it effectively, too. He speaks with the authority of an ambassador who knows he has the full backing of the King of the Cosmos.

It’s clear from his steady and sober tone that he knows he has a critical message to bring from a holy God to all humans on planet earth. {So do we.} Robertson demonstrates, calmly and confidently, how to deploy the sword of truth to dissect one lie after another. He goes after the faulty logic, ignoring the emotion and rhetoric.

Admittedly, he uses rhetoric of his own – I’d say it’s part of being a skilled apologist – but he still shows concern for the soul of the man who is so proud of his hostility towards the God who made him.


Now, if we could only have pause/play buttons for real time debates…
