Vince's "Why Believe?" Website

This page has been created for two types of people: Christians who are struggling with their faith, and honest inquirers of any persuasion who are seeking spiritual truth. The articles below were selected for their outstanding quality. I have found them especially helpful in resolving difficulties for my own Christian belief. I hope you find them as useful as I did.

0. General Reference Section: the facts about Jesus, the Bible, Christians beliefs, & important documents in Christian history.

An intellectual defence of various aspects of Christian belief
1. God's existence; God's attributes; God's relation to the world as Creator; God and evil.
2. Spirits. The human soul: its existence, origin and destiny. Disembodied spirits (angels and demons). .
3. Religion: the good and bad things resulting from religion, and why the good far outweighs the bad.
4. The case for revealed religion; the credibility of Christ and the Christian message.
5. The Mysteries of the Christian Faith: The Trinity, the Incarnation and the Atonement.
6. Is the Bible the inspired and inerrant Word of God, or the creation of fallible and bigoted human beings?
7. The Christian Church: faithful guardian of Jesus' message, or a creation of power-hungry men? Friend or enemy of human progress?
8. Hell: the greatest obstacle to Christian belief. How can any compassionate person believe in Hell?

Other Topics Relating to Christianity
9. Living a Christian Life: Prayer, the Ten Commandments, the Sacraments, Spiritual Classics, Lives of the Saints, and Christian Ethics.

Note to the Reader:
In putting together this Web page, I have deliberately made use of articles writen by Christians coming from a variety of different denominations - Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox - as the aim here is primarily to defend Christianity. The Christianity defended here is mainstream Christianity, as expressed in the Nicene Creed and the definitions of the Seven Ecumenical Councils - especially the first four, which are recognized by the Orthodox Church, by the Catholic Church, and also by many Anglicans and Protestants.
