"Can the Christian Know?"

When the Christian claims to know that Christianity is true, it is not uncommon for someone to quip, "You can't know that!"

Indeed, on the surface the claim seems extravagant or possibly even outrageous; however, does the Christian have solid ground when he or she proclaims that they know Christianity is true?

In his article, Can the Christian Know?, Brian Auten of Apologetics 315 takes a look at this very question.

Brian writes:

"Christianity claims to be true. Christians believe it to be true. But can the Christian know that it is true? Moreover, can the believer who cannot prove Christianity to be true, legitimately say that he knows that Christianity is true? Our purpose here is twofold: to show that the Christian can legitimately claim to know that Christianity is true, and to explore how the Christian knows."

Brian's article is unique and thought-provoking and I encourage you to take the time to read it.
