Article: If You Think Racism is Wrong, You Should be a Christian by Tim Stratton

I greatly appreciate the work of Tim Stratton of Free Thinking Ministries.  Stratton most often argues using syllogisms and this is  how I best understand arguments.  Further, he is able to put difficult concepts "on the lower shelf" for those who are struggling to understand an argument or who may be new to apologetics.  As I have said in the past, I highly recommend his work.

In this featured article, Stratton puts forth and briefly defends the following argument:

1. If God does not exist, life is objectively purposeless.
2. If life is objectively purposeless, there exists no objective standard to which one ought to approximate.
3. Anti-racism is an objective standard to which one ought to approximate.
4. Therefore, life is not objectively purposeless.
5. Therefore, God exists.

You can read the entire article here.

Courage and Godspeed,
