How do Atheists Steal From God?

Crimes against God?

What if your best reasons to doubt God show that He actually exists?  What if atheists, properly understood, are actually unwitting apologists for the God they reject?  That’s the case I make in the book and new online course called Stealing from God:  Why atheists need God to make their case. 

Stealing from God is organized around CRIMES, which highlights the intellectual CRIMES atheists are making.  “CRIMES” stands for Causality, Reason, Information, Morality, Evil and Science.  Those are aspects of reality that some atheists say disprove God, when, in fact, those things wouldn’t exist unless God existed.

    “This is a great course, and has given me surprising new insight as to how to deal with the common arguments brought by atheists, skeptics and seekers. I thought I was fairly knowledgeable about good arguments for God's existence, but I now realize I was very heavy on science and light on philosophy and reason. I highly recommend this course to any Christian, or even any skeptic that dares to ask the question, what if? I believe God used apologetics to give me the head knowledge of the truth of God and the identity of Jesus that led to my salvation and a truly changed life. I am so thankful for training programs like this that are so needed to effectively share the gospel in today's post Christian, post truth world. I will definitely take more of these courses. Thank you for this great resource! Tony Williams ”
