Why I'm NOT a Christian.

This Sunday the Summit Church is starting a new sermon series entitled "Why I'm NOT a Christian." Our pastor, J.D. Greear is going to take the most common objections to Christianity and try to answer them. As part of the series we have started a new website whyimnotachristian.com where people can go and write their objections to Christianity. Leslie, my very talented and creative wife, designed the site and the subsequent materials that will be used during the series. I would encourage any nonchristians reading this blog to visit the site and write down your objection.
Some of the upcoming sermon titles are:

8/31: “How can there be only one true religion or way to God?”
9/7: “How could a good God allow suffering?”
9/14: “Christianity is too restrictive”
9/21: “The Church has been responsible for so much injustice”
9/28: “How can a loving God send people to Hell?”
10/5: “But science has disproved Christianity!”
10/12: “Everyone knows the Bible can’t be taken literally”

If you live too far away from Durham to come and hear the series in person you can listen to them online here.
If these objections and/or this series of sermons, sparks your interest and you want to go a step further I highly encourage you to read Tim Keller's new book The Reason for God. If you are not a big reader you could at least read a well written book review on it which is found here.
