Does Christianity Stand on Faith or Evidence?

By Dan Delzell, Christian Post

I had an interesting e-mail exchange with an agnostic this week. He wrote: "If there were good evidence to corroborate the Bible, would you need faith? Correct me if I am mistaken, but faith lies at the core of the Christian worldview, not reliance on evidence."

That is an excellent question and one that I suspect lies at the heart of why many agnostics and atheists have yet to seriously evaluate Christianity. If they only knew that the core of the Christian worldview is actually evidence rather than faith, many of them might finally look at the evidence with an open mind. It is only after one is presented solid evidence that he is invited to place his faith in the facts of the Gospel. Christian faith stands on something permanent and proven.

I am talking about mathematical and statistical evidence that any jury would hear about if the Bible was put on trial. Just as the Book of Mormon could be put on trial to determine its historical reliability or lack thereof, so also the Bible can be judged as being either miraculous or man-made.
