Most people in our day tend to think of religious faith as a blind leap, something that's opposed to reason and rationality. Though that may be true for many religions, is this true of the Christian faith? Joining the panel to discuss this issue is Greg Koukl, author of Tactics and Faith is Not Wishing.

    Several weeks ago at work I was asked by a manager whether people who die in other countries without hearing the gospel will go to hell. This person was using this as an excuse not to go back to church and would interrupt me when I tried to give a biblical reason as to why they deserve eternal torment, saying that I couldn't base my beliefs on this matter on the Bible because they didn't have the Bible.

    One thing I was able to do in the conversation is provide at least some basic information concerning the historical defense of Christianity -- that there is an empty tomb and that we have credible eyewitnesses. I'm sure he is still struggling with how a good God can send "good people" (who don't exist!) to hell when they haven't heard the gospel, but hopefully he will still run up against the wall of the historical evidence for Christ's ressurrection. The front lines are being pushed back in our increasingly pluralistic culture, mind you I live in the Bible belt. I was only able to provide any reason for my beliefs at all because of White Horse Inn's episodes on apologetics. I pray that others will be zealous to provide a reasonable defense of the gospel, and I pray that the Lord gives me another opportunity to talk with my manager about this matter.

    Peace to you!

    This episode speaks of really smart people misunderstanding and defining faith incorrectly. Here is a good example of exactly what you are talking about. In this CNN interview, Richard Dawkins defines faith as "believing without evidence" (minute 3:43). Thankfully your teaching tells us that Scripture teaches the exact opposite by stressing the historical facts conveyed in the New Testament.
