Bracing myself for the Dawkins brigade -ve comments but for anyone interested John Stott's "Why I am a Christian" ebook is currently free.

LOL That was quick.

And easily up to the usual intellectual standard for the atheistic outbursts we get on here!

Believe in yourself, live life to the max

Perhaps this is why there are so many really nasty people around: all of the low-lives, villains, thieves and murderers, arsonists and mercenaries are all following your maxim?

Having said that, I really would like to know what makes your point of view any more valid than someone that believes in something intangible?

Seems to me that your belief is in yourself and their belief is in something that is rumoured to have been around much longer than you have and so they might argue that their multi-generational continuity of belief trumps your personal and very short period of belief.

John Stott was a great man, and sadly no longer with us.

This is a great book, but the majority of the tolerance brigade (who're only actually tolerant of anything they agree with) aren't going to invest the time this book deserves, free or not.

Heat from me though.

Great book, try it! It's free! Hot for me.

... And all the other brainless tripe will follow from those who adhere to the same simpleminded and schoolyard logic as the above comment.

It's nice to know that some people are so quick to judge a book by its cover and are not interested in finding out the truth for themselves instead of the knee-jerk negative comments that you have resorted to using. As a comparison, CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien were Christians and wrote about their faith sometimes in allegories and many Christians practise what they preach. Does that make their faith meaningless? Why would you only wish to believe in yourself given that humans err and get things wrong because of their finite thinking? The Bible states that evil comes from the devil and that the source of all good comes from God. That's what the real Easter is all about when Christians celebrate the first coming and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who is 100% man and 100% God. This means that we can be 100% free of our sins; past, present and future and have eternal life by simply believing in Jesus Christ as both Lord and Saviour. According to Time magazine in 2005, Stott was ranked among the top 100 most influential people in the world. Stott has obviously taken the time to consider this question and has addressed its validity in our post-modernist pluralistic society by using apologetics and putting his life's faith on the line as a subject of . In future, please think a bit more before you castigate Christianity as being the same as all religions. Thanks OP for sharing!

When 'God's children' carry out horrific acts, how is this explained? Is it the devils work?

i find your last sentence very disturbing! Christianity is exactly like other religions - a belief. Your last sentence seems to suggest other religions should still be seen as a cancer...

please all users keep on topic and do not use the forum to pronounce your religion is better than any1 else's. religions are all based on belief so its pointless having these arguments because there is nothing underlying your views which can change other peoples mind. Beliefs are not based on any facts so you are all just going to reduce to shouting personal beliefs at each other.
Yes organised religious institutions have caused lots of suffering in the world, but that is a different subject and not at all related to this book which seems to just be one guys story.

Perfectly put, thanks.

Great, thanks for sharing. I think it's only fair that all free things should be shared as this site isn't just for people of one mind set.
