The Question that Evangelical Apologists Do Not Want to Be Asked

Different Types of Questions

Evangelical Christian apologists love to answer questions from skeptics about their Faith. But there is one question that they typically do not like to answer:

How old were you when you first believed in the resurrected Jesus as your Lord and Savior?

Many evangelical apologists do not like answering this question because it forces them to publicly admit that they first believed in the reality of dead corpse reanimation at the tender age of ELEVEN (the median age of an evangelical born again experience)!

The majority of the respondents (63 percent) accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord while they were 4-14 years old, in what is known as the 4/14 Window.

–the National Association of Evangelicals

The 4/14 Window??? Good god! How can a FOUR year old make an informed, rational decision as to the reality of dead corpse reanimation??

  1. How does that prove anything? You believed that the world was round from a younger age, that the earth orbits the sun, that there were other continents and many other things.

    Should you have only begun to believe those things when you were 20?

    How does the age at which you learn a truth diminish the truthfulness of the facts?

    And again, you keep strawmanning here. For your long list of what you have read, you still don’t seem to know what we believe about the Resurrected Jesus. You seem to still be conflating zombies with what the church has preached about the third day for 2000 years.

    1. Indoctrinating little children to believe that they must love and obey the (imaginary) reanimated corpse of a first century peasant or he will use his unlimited magical powers to cast them into eternal darkness (and possibly fire) should be outlawed and punished with imprisonment.

      How does the age at which you learn a truth diminish the truthfulness of the facts?

      Because Christianity is NOT based on truth, so the younger one is exposed to it the more likely such garbage will be assimilated. Surely even an Indoctrinated Nob like you are able comprehend this?

  2. I was 12 when I “got saved”. Was it because I recognized the love of god or felt the holy spirit tugging on my heart? Nope. It was the fear of hell. I was told that if I don’t accept Jesus, I will burn in hell, forever. Child abuse!

  3. As usual, Liam doesn’t get it. Knowing there are continents and that the Earth is a sphere does not constitute ‘belief’. These are demonstrable facts, independent of whether one ‘believes’ in them and irregardless of the age one encounters them. The resurrection of a dead man, however, and the clutter that goes with it are beliefs, to be held on faith with no means of validation.
    Fact or fiction: you pays your money, you takes your choice.

  4. As Neil correctly points out above, emphasis mine:

    The resurrection of a dead man, however, and the clutter that goes with it are beliefs, to be held on faith with no means of validation.

    And I’d politely request to add a little bit of known, proven medical science—specifically in Neurology, Psychology, and Endocrinology—due to the wide clinical results of Placebo-effects (a mythical risen Christ), Peer-assimilation/pressure, Herd-Mob Mentality (churches, worship services of ‘astounding‘ performances disguised as miracles), and ALL OF THIS is solidified by what Neil mentioned as “Faith,” or actually a form of Blind Faith really when the content of a 4th-century CE book of stories and letters cannot hold up to extensive, exhaustive, fully contextual historical examination over and over and over! Not to mention (again!) the GROSS and intentional amputation/denial of Jesus’/Yeshua’s deeply Sectarian Judaism within Second Temple Messianism… by 2nd- thru 5th-century Greco-Roman (Hellenist) Church Fathers right up to modern day Christians and Xian Apologists… having really NO true portrayal of the 1st-century Rabbi-reformer’s life, teachings, and personality leading his Movement against Hellenism and Rome. Another topic of questions Evangelical Apologists avoid like the plague! πŸ˜„ What is it they are SO SCARED about? πŸ˜‰

    Great stuff Gary. Keep up the excellent work! πŸ™‚

      1. I’ve often wondered about the merits of entertaining anyone on my blog who does not have a valid blog of there own. The more I read from people such as Liam the more I feel justified in not allowing them ”airtime”.

        1. I allow Liam’s drive-by commenting because they demonstrate the irrationality of the thinking of many evangelical Christians. Liam believes that just because eight or so authors in the first several centuries mentioned Jesus by name that this is good evidence that Jesus was bodily resurrected from the dead.

          There is no correlation. Yet Liam repeats it over and over and over again.

          We should ask Liam this question: Just because several ancient authors mention the existence of a man name Mohammad is that evidence that this man rode on a winged horse into the night sky??
