Just A Crutch?

Here's a transcript of Greg Koukl's podcast of several days ago (I don't remember the exact date). Greg is the founder of Stand To Reason, an organization I heartily recommend. It's one of my links, so I must like it, right? Of course! Without further ado:

"Some say Christianity is just a crutch. But let's turn the question on its edge for a monent. Is atheism an emotional crutch, wishful thinking? The ax cuts both ways. Perhaps atheists are rejecting God because they've had a bad relationship with their father. Instead of inventing God, have atheists invented non-God? Have they invented atheism to escape some of the frightening implications of God's existence? Think about it."

We should think about that and so should atheists! so, the next time you hear the "Christianity is just a crutch" statement, you'll know how to answer. One of the best things we can do as we interact with people who may not be followers of Christ is to "turn the tables" on an argument and see what happens.
