Facts and Faith exists to fairly and honestly

communicate information about the Christian faith

Welcome to Facts and Faith

There is only one good reason to believe in Christianity —

Because it is true!

For over 2,000 years, the truth claims of Christianity have withstood the most rigorous intellectual challenges. The problem isn’t that Christianity cannot stand up to intellectual challenge; the problem is that many Christians do not know how to respond to the intellectual challenges made to their faith. The essential message of Facts & Faith is that the truth claims of Christianity are not only rationally supported by scientific, philosophic and historical evidence, but that genuine Christianity offers every person a life of great meaning, hope and freedom.

Based on biblical principles, Facts & Faith seeks to fairly address issues raised by skeptics and present objective summaries of Christian truth claims, including differing points of view, so the claims of Christianity may be fairly considered and critiqued by sincere truth seekers.

“We do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God.

On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves

to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.”

2 Corinthians 4:2

Evidence for God's Existence

“There are very good reasons to believe God exists and no good reason to believe he does not.” – William Lane Craig

INTRODUCTORY SUMMARY: The Eternally Existent, Transcendent God of the Bible is the Best Explanation for the Existence of the Universe

God’s Existence Best Explains Why Anything Exists (An Argument for the Necessity of an Uncaused First Cause)

God’s Existence Best Explains the Universe Coming into Existence (The Kalan Cosmological Argument)

The explanation that the universe was caused to come into existence by a self-existent, eternal, transcendent Creator is a more satisfying explanation than the atheist’s explanation that the universe came into existence without a cause — from nothing, by nothing and, ultimately, for nothing

God’s Existence Best Explains all the Exquisitely Fine-Tuned Features in the Universe which Scientists have Discovered Permit Life to Exist

 “A commonsense interpretation of the facts suggests that a super intellect has monkeyed with physics, as well as chemistry and biology, and that there are no blind forces worth speaking about in nature. The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question.”  Fred Hoyle (Cosmologist noted for the theory of stellar nucleosynthesis)

Because of all the just-right qualities of Earth which permits it to support life, even secular scientists refer to Earth as the Goldie Locks Planet.

INTRODUCTORY SUMMARY: God’s Attributes – What is God Like? How is He Different than Us?

God is Knowable

God is Eternal — What Does that Mean? How Does God’s Eternalness Affect Us?

“… God’s being eternal means that God exists without beginning or end.  He never comes into or goes out of existence; rather His existence is permanent.”  — William Lane Craig

God is Self-Existent (Transcendent)

In contrast to everything and everyone within the created order which exist “ab alio” (i.e., through another), God is self-existent and does not depend on anything outside of himself for his existence

God is Triune (One in Essence but Three in Person; One What but Three Whos)

Tolerance Of Other Beliefs

The great glory and strength of pluralism is that it compels the holder of any belief to measure its truthfulness against alternative interpretations. The great hazard of pluralism is the faulty deduction that, in the name of tolerance, all beliefs can be equally true.
