Andy Steiger Articles Leave a Comment

There was a time when atheists merely viewed religion as an oddity like stamp collecting, believing religion possessed little to no ultimate value or truth and was harmless. Those days are now gone. Religion has moved from wrong to bad. In fact, the now deceased atheist Christopher Hitchens went so far as to claim, “the main source of hatred in the world is religion.” Dr. Paul Chamberlain argues in his book, Why People Don’t Believe: Confronting Seven Challenges to Christian Faith, that “9/11 brought with it a new fervency, even militancy, in approach taken by critics of religion who are actively dedicated to getting out the message that religious faith is not only false but actually dangerous…” The brunt of this anti-religion propaganda, interestingly enough, has been focused on Christianity. The effects of which have been devastating on our university campuses where 50-90 percent of Christians will abandon their faith. During this episode of Apologetics.com your host, Andy Steiger, interviews Dr. Chamberlain on his book regarding the current state of culture, the fallacious thinking being promoted and how the church can respond. Dr. Chamberlain is a professor at Trinity Western University (TWU) and director of the Institute for Christian Apologetics at TWU / ACTS Seminary in Langley, BC Canada (acts.twu.ca). His book can be purchased at local bookstores, on Amazon or through Baker Books Publishing. You can hear Dr. Chamberlain address the topic: Is Religion Dangerous live at the Apologetics Canada Conference on March 9th-10th, 2012 in Vancouver, BC Canada.
