Tell Us Why You’re a Christian

by Max Andrews

The popular atheist PZ Myers has had a running series on his acclaimed blog, Pharyngula, titled “Why I’m an Atheist.” I see this shared on Twitter all the time and it’s very sad to read these atheist testimonies. All too many of these posts are stories of people who claim to have been Christian and have left the faith. I wanted to start a counter-series here on your story. The series will be, “Why I’m a Christian.” All you would need to do is send me an email at maxeoa[at]gmail[dot]com and tell me why you became a Christian and why you continue being a Christian. Your story can be however long you want it to be. Unless you note otherwise (if you want last name, last initial, anonymity, etc.), I’ll only use your first name. I hope to spread your stories to demonstrate the glory and work of God in your lives. Another benefit in doing this is so we can encourage other Christians to persevere in the faith and hopefully some of your stories will resonate with the hearts others–Christian and non-Christian. Please share this with anyone you think may be interested. I’ll post them as they come in.

  1. Email sent. I hope it suits your purposes and that you can use it.

  2. Why I am a Christian, not why I became a Christian, is the impossibility of the contrary. Presuppositionalist coined the phrase, but it sure fits. No other worldview is true.

    • Jesus doesn’t save in a contextless milieu. At one time I was not a Christian and later became one. That doesn’t remove God’s choosing power from the scene.
