image Timothy Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, wrote in the introduction of his book, The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism:

The only way to doubt Christianity rightly and fairly is to discern the alternate belief under each of your doubts and then ask yourself what reasons you have for believing it.  How do you know your belief is true?  It would be inconsistent to require more justification for Christian belief than you do for your own, but that is frequently what happens.  In fairness you must doubt your doubts.  My thesis is that if you come to recognize the beliefs on which your doubts about Christianity are based, and if you seek as much proof for those beliefs as you seek from Christians for theirs – you will discover that your doubts are not as solid as they first appeared, (pg. xix).

  1. Keller might be onto something here, many people are not sure why they believe what they believe. That still doesnt clear up many of the problems atheists have with Christianity mind you, but it sets up the conversation.
