Amen, Pastor. If there wasn’t a place for us in heaven, we would know because Jesus would have told us.

Jn 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Argument from ignorance. Accepting a proposition simply because it has not yet been disproved, or vice versa. Example: “God doesn’t exist, because no one has ever disproved that He doesn’t exist.” It is impossible for the Christian to argue from ignorance, because he knows that God exists (Gen 1:1).

Appeal to authority. Attempting to support one’s argument by referring to an unreliable or unqualified “authoritative source” that holds the same view. Atheists often appeal to science to shore up their faltering arguments. But the Bible warns us to avoid so-called science (1 Tim 6:20) because any form of worldly wisdom is an unreliable source of information about God (1 Cor 1:21).

Argument from self-knowing. Assuming that one would automatically know whether a proposition were true. Example: “If God existed, I would know it. But because I don’t know, He mustn’t exist.” Wrong! The atheist does know deep down in his heart that God exists (Rom 1:18-20; cf. 1 Cor 2:11). This is more of a lie than a fallacy.

Argument from incredulity. Dismissing a proposition simply on the grounds that one cannot imagine it to be true. Example: “I find the biblical account of a God who created the universe in six 24-hour days 6,000 years ago a bit far-fetched; therefore He doesn’t exist.” Because apparently it’s so much easier to believe the universe came from nothing and we evolved from monkeys! Fluffy-bunny “Christians” are also guilty of this fallacy: “I can’t believe God hates fags; therefore I’ll just ignore the relevant Bible passages.”


Mt 21:42, 44 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes . . . ? And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
