Most of the time in conversations with skeptics, they want to pit faith against fact and throw it to the vicious onslaught of reason to be torn apart and devoured by the likes of science, truth, evidence, and reality. Faith against fact — these words not only find their way into book titles and chapter headings, but they also serve as common rebuttals to Christian beliefs in ordinary conversations with skeptics. No atheistic litany would be complete without some expression of woe over Christianity’s blatant offenses to reason. Religious skeptics typically fail to define and distinguish properly between belief and truth, both of which are essential elements of knowledge. This episode offers some reflections on how Christians can respond to the faith–reason (faith–fact) dichotomy.
