Calvary Church Westside, Campus Pastor Jesse Lusko loves to have conversations with people, and he is interested in finding out about what they care about. The most challenging part of these discussions is that Jesse is often visiting with atheists, and they disagree with him about his faith in Jesus. Here are a few quotes from Jesse today from our interview about Atheism and Belief in God:
“God doesn’t have to do a miracle to convince an atheist because his ordinary works convince him. It is true that a little philosophy inclines a man’s mind to atheism, but depth of philosophy brings men’s minds back to religion.” Francis Bacon
“People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs, not based on proof, but on the basis on what they find attractive. It is so important that we show people the beauty of Christ.” Blaise Pascal
“Tell me about the God you don’t believe in; maybe I don’t believe in him either.” It’s amazing how many people hate Christianity, not having the faintest idea of what it teaches.” Dorothy L Sayers, Christian, Crime writer, and Poet (one of the first women to graduate from Oxford).
