From the Aquila Report, here’s a great example of the dishonest tactics so often used to attack Christianity. I think it should be taken as an unintended compliment, a tribute to the importance of Christianity. If Christianity were irrelevant and dying, there’d be no need to go to all this effort. That someone is willing to throw away their own intellectual credibility to make attacks like this just shows that it really does matter, and that the author of such attacks has very personal, non-intellectual reasons for being so desperate to find reasons not to submit to Jesus Christ. Why not just ignore Jesus? Because they can’t. This article feels to me like Hitler’s last desperate attempts to defend Germany when his own generals all knew they were defeated.
At any rate, Michael Kruger does a great job of dismantling arguments that anyone with even a passing familiarity with church history would know were nonsense. This is one really important reason to study church history, as we are doing at Christ Reformed- to recognize the foolishness of these kinds of slanders.
