    Atheist asks Christian for evidence. Christian gives evidence. Atheist rejects evidence based on Personal Incredulity logical fallacies. Atheist asks other Christians for evidence. Other Christians give other evidence. Atheists always reject evidence to protect their religious beliefs about God through Cognitive Dissonance and Appeal to Ignorance logical fallacies.

    "If one argues that God or telepathy, ghosts, or UFO's do not exist because their existence has not been proven beyond a shadow of doubt, then this fallacy occurs." – Lander University Philosophy Department

    The Holy Spirit is the only one who will convince a sinner to desire Messiah more than their sin. His is the determining factor. If the person wasn't chosen before the foundation of the earth, they are not elect.
    While we may get some who are not elect to seemingly convert, they are just false conversions. This is how you get so many false prophets, teaching heresies. Why do you think there are so many warning passages, these are for false converts, so we & they understand what they are.

    "Deal with people who are biased against Christianity"?
    You don't. You've "pled your case," you've "tried to convert 'em" whatever. After that?

    The moral of the story is to recognize your biases and to be charitable to opposing views even if we do not agree with their interpretation of the data. Loved the video Mr Wallace. God bless you and your ministry.

    Love this conversation. Our church (Vizion church in Charlotte NC) just did an “Asking for a friend” series, too! Answering questions believers and non believers have that are sometimes seen as “tough” questions. It’s been a great learning series for me and many fellow believers.

    I appreciate your videos so much because I learn more foundations of faith and how to have productive conversation with people.

    Asking the question "if all of this was true, would you worship him?" is probably not a very useful question to ask complete unbelievers… The reason you will mostly hear "No" is because our society is materialistic and atheistic in nature. It's simply not our culture to worship anything. Our hearts are naturally bent against worshipping God. It was like this before the scientific age, it's even more like this now. However, you CAN control the bias, just not directly. Only God can directly do something about that, but we certainly can influence in other ways. First of all, we can pray to God that their hearts get softened. Because it's not all about rational arguments. Surely they are 100% needed in evangelization, but it's way more than that. They might even be secundary. Also, Jesus proved he had authority not only with miracles but also by the wisdom of his word, by showing his immense kindness and love for everybody, and his eagerness to do good. THESE things can change hearts, and lives, and bend toward trust in God and repentance of evil, which then leads toward saving faith. Evangelizing means becoming an imitator of Christ, witnessing not only to his message but also his way of living. This is the reason why the epistles constantly exhort towards godly living. It isn't only to our benefit, but to the benefit of unbelievers too, who by watching us learn who Christ is.

    I love how "Scientism-ists" presume science is unbiased, and completely rational, making the belief in a "Sky-Daddy" completely irrational (except that some do grant the rationality of being deluded to the extent that belief in God offers psychological comfort, though.) Well, the scientific method is rational. But it is not the only way to know things; i.e., morality and history. The problem is science is done by biased scientists, just like verdicts are often-times rendered by biased jurors, to the detriment of knowledge, in the former case, and justice, in the later case.
