Ep 72: Why am I not an atheist?

Who made God? Will atheism bring freedom?
Sun 2 Jul 2017


Bible reference(s): John 8:32

In Why I am not a Christian influential philosopher Bertrand Russell asked the big questions of the existence of God and immortality. Russell's conclusion: atheism - there was no god.

David Robertson (Scottish author, debater, and pastor) was tempted by atheism and considered it an attractive option. But he is not persuaded by Russell. Instead he is a Christian and in this Bigger Questions discussion we'll hear why.

Who made God? Will atheism bring freedom? What about pain and suffering?

We'll ask David Robertson these and more bigger questions.

David Robertson is an experienced presenter and debater on the place of the Christian faith in the public sphere, a prolific blogger at The Wee Flea, and is currently the minister at St Peter's Free Church in Dundee, Scotland.

This episode was recorded before a live audience in Melbourne's CBD in June 2017.
