Ep #57- Can I Believe In God Despite The Objections?!
Show Notes

We are back with episode two of Natural Theology!! Throughout this series we explore in bite-sized format the question if there are any good arguments for the existence of God. Last time we discussed the self-authenticating inner witness of the Holy Spirit and the role it plays in our knowing that Christianity is true. But can it justify our belief in God even if there are arguments that counter it? Can our experience of God be something as fundamental to our knowledge in the face of objections and arguments as our knowledge of our innocence/guilt in a situation? Join us as we explore this most fascinating question!
