Good resource when in this discussion...
It's the most difficult and contentious issue facing Christians in the Western world today, and we all need the best possible information available. This is especially true in the U.S, now that the Supreme Court has made gay marriage the law of the land. This page presents some of the best ...

Cannot hate what doesn't exist.

What I do hate is indoctrination and cults of lies.

I suspect that you hate those things too, yes?

Hinduism, Mormonism, Islam, etc.

Now, if Christianity is true, you'd expect it to hold up to the same scrutiny you use to dismiss  other religions and cults, right?

What method do you use to dismiss the Islamic hell?  Or Joesph Smith's revelation?  Or any of the thousands of other religions, cults, doctrines and faiths you disagree with?

You must use evidence, and you must use the scientific method.

Because if you use, "faith" and "God spoke to me" then you are on the same footing as the Hindu or Mormon.

There is a way to test whether what you believe is true or not, It's called the Outsiders Test for Faith.  Or OTF.

It's explained thoroughly in The Christian Delusion: Why Faith Fails.

Are you willing to test your own beliefs?  Most people are afraid to or they are too lazy.

I used to believe wholeheartedly until I went seeking knowledge and was open to listen to all the different sides and not just my own favorite apologists.

It's a different world if you are willing to say, "I might be wrong."

Most Christians aren't that intellectually honest.  All the time they tell me that they have "exclusive" and "true" knowledge of God, and in the next sentence they tell me about how all the other Christian sects and denominations are "false" and most are going to hell.

So even among Christians there is zero agreement on anything.

Looking at the King James Version of the Bible, you'll come across the word "Unicorn".

Job 39:10 KJV
Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? Or will he harrow the valleys after thee? 

Doing a cross reference you find out it's just a Wild Ox.
Job 39:10 (NASB95)
               10      “Can you bind the wild ox in a furrow with ropes,
         Or will he harrow the valleys after you?
A good example of bad translations.

Fear of Death and God. The two things that we are told not to fear at all ; Atheists are always speaking of them.  But, indeed, positive atheism, as a rational conviction, is impossible. It is absolutely impossible that any direct positive proof what soever should be brought against the existence of God.

Atheism overthrows morality and authority, the supports of human society. If it were universally accepted, it would inevitably bring about the destruction of the human race.

"My emphasis is

to base all my argument on the truth of God’s revelation,
to apply that revelation to each apologetic encounter differently as the situation calls for it,
to move as quickly as possible to the Gospel,
always expressing “gentleness and respect” (1 Pet. 3:15)."

Perfect.
A new edition of John Frame's classic introductory book is now available, and I ask him a few questions.

If Christian theism is not true, then nothing is true. Is the God of the Bible satisfied if his servants say anything less?
There is no common ground; there is God's ground.
