From the Defending Your Faith Conference at Liberty Hill Baptist Church.
Pastor Marc is joined by Cameron Bertuzzi of Capturing Christianity for part 1 of a discussion on “Street Epistemology”, a movement growing in popularity with atheists and skeptics. They take a look at what SE is, some general problems with it’s methodology, and address how Christians ought to think about some specific SE tactics should they encounter them.

05:46 How did you get turned on to this topic of Street Epistemology?
07:53 More About Capturing Christianity
09:51 Defining Street Epistemology
12:51 General negative aspects of SE
17:10 A word about difficult questions
18:35 They’re not experts either
19:20 SE seems designed to create doubt, not seek truth
22:34 People from other religions say the same thing, why think your belief is the right one?
32:38 If there is supposedly all of this evidence for Christianity, why are there so many others who can’t see it?
It is not uncommon to encounter things we do not understand. The question is, will you allow your doubts to shape your beliefs, or will you rely on a more firm foundation?
There is a common notion in some circles that views Faith as being opposed to reason or rationality. Or that Faith is only needed when there is doubt or lack of knowledge. But the reality is that Biblical Faith is something entirely different, and it is something we all do every day.
