Thank you for the additional thinking on this. I have faith my responses are planting seeds, but unfortunately I have noticed a recent bombardment of extreme skepticism. I’m doing my best to work through these questions with him when he responds, while also realizing I am a constant learner of the Christian faith as well. It seems almost as if he has gone to every skeptic website site imaginable to defend his lack of belief.
As I mentioned before he is supportive of my Christian faith…but believes “Some people need that” — and not everyone does, suggesting it’s more of a mental weakness vs. intelligent logical thought out belief.
He also claims the Bible was written to be interpreted vaguely. So anyone can pull anything out of the text to fulfill whatever message they would like - good and bad alike.
Lastly, there are no “true scientists” today who are convinced of Christianity if they truly follow the evidence. He claims only religious scientists may go into the field to try to further their beliefs.
Not trying to bombard everyone here with ridiculousness, just a few of the numerous rebuttals my husband is giving me. Some are much easier to unpack than others.
It’s hard to give responses to him without me saying “let me read a little more of what Christian scientists have to say about that” to try to articulate my discussions.
Prayers for the Holy Spirit to guide me and allow me to kindly and thoroughly respond to his disagreements are very welcomed.
