If you ever need a fresh reminder for the urgency of real theology, I give you this:
Here is the opening:
It is impossible that Christianity is not God’s revelation of truth to man. Simply impossible. The math proves it beyond question. It doesn’t take faith to believe that one plus one equals two, and it doesn’t take faith to identify the religion which has mathematical certainty in its corner.
This is from the same guy who gave us:
In both articles, Pastor Delzell happily informs us that reason alone — uninformed by faith — can prove Christianity. So, I’m not exactly clear on what faith does, since faith is not necessary to get us to the divinity and authority of Christ.
I am also curious as to whether Delzell has actually talked to a non-Christian and tried this stuff? Or to a Jew? I also see that he is a Lutheran pastor. I am not a Lutheran, but I am doubtful that Luther would be impressed by these brazen declarations that faith is not necessary to affirm the Christian faith.
