The argument for belief

Posted September 6, 2017 11:14 am by Editor

The on-line PragerU has posted numerous useful teaching videos since its inception. One is a practical reflection on the subject of belief in God. It’s hosted by Peter Kreeft who is a Professor of philosophy at Boston of College.

Here is PragerU’s mission:

You and your children may or may not believe in God, but perhaps you wish you did? You may have fallen away from practicing the Christian faith and want to explore ways to come back. We are free to be atheists or agnostics. The choice is ours. We can let today’s aggressive “religion” of political correctness and relativism guide our personal lives, marriage and family life. However,  by accepting secularism doesn’t mean that we can’t behave as if we believed in a transcendent and loving God. Kreeft makes a good case for belief in God and why it leads to making better decision about living more authentic and truthful lives. Parents owe it to their children to at least hear the message. Children are growing up in very confusing and hyper-sexualized society. It’s left to parents to counter the toxic culture and exploitative media environemts to protect the safety and well-being of their children’s physical, mental, spiritual and social health. Please watch the video and come to your own conclusions:

In Matthew 10:27 we read: “What I say to you in the dark, tell in the daylight; what you hear in whispers, proclaim from the housetops.” Evangelization is to share belief with others. God has a plan for each human being. Our goal is to have the willingness to accept and live out that plan. If this entry has even in some small way inspired you to ask more questions about belief, you may wish to visit the Coming Home Network that explains a number of topics about the Catholic faith.
