I thought this would be something fun, and hopefully something that I can get the high schoolers involved with. Like I said earlier, one of the most interesting portions of the week was a seminar that everyone went to on the top ten objections to Christianity. The young lady from Ravi Zacharias’ apologetics organization brought up a student and asked them each one of the questions. They in turn were asked to reply and defend their faith. It was a very interesting exercise, and it allowed some of the kids to really shine. Unfortunately, she was only able to go through 8 of the ten.
So what I want to do here is go through the 8 objections. I’ll state the objection as best as I can in the words of one who sincerely brings this question. Then I would like you all to answer me as you would a friend who is struggling with these issues. Please allow my high schoolers to get in the action. And I will give you the same directions she gave us. Just don’t answer with more questions, but with actual answers. So here’s the first objection:
8. There is simply no proof that God exists. How do you know that this isn’t just the creation of a bunch of guys? I can’t see God and neither can you. And there is nothing you can do to prove that God actually exists.
