Thoughtful Christian Discussion on Atheism

By guest author Aaron Smith

Below is a link to a Chapel video from Dallas Theological Seminary video called The New Atheism. The discussion is thoughtful and level-minded.  I find the advice for Christians, starting around the 20 minute mark, particularly interesting, as I am guilty of mean-spirited engagement with Atheist ideas.

I think the main take-away for Christians from this discussion should be a willingness to listen to other points of view, Atheist or otherwise, without arrogance or condescension.  I’ve found it difficult to express Jesus’ love while engaging in last-word contests.
