What’s The One Question We Should Ask Unbelievers?

Frank Turek shares perhaps the most important question for an unbeliever:

If Christianity were true, would you become a Christian?

Because that clears away all the smokescreens that a person has.

I ask this question on college campuses all the time. I say, „If Christianity were true, would you become a Christian?” of atheists who are standing in line and are getting a little hostile with me. And on three occasions in the past 2 years, I’ve had atheists yell back to me, „NO !!!” I said, „No? Wait, wait, why are we even here? Why don’t we just go have pizza? What do you mean: No? You claim to be an atheist, the beacon of reason. Never mind if atheism is true reason doesn’t exist, because we’re just molecules in motion. But, let’s leave that aside. I asked you if Christianity is true, would you become a Christian and you say NO? How is that reasonable? How is that rational?”

It’s not. They don’t want it to be true. And usually, they don’t want it to be true because they don’t wanna have any moral accountability to anyone. They just wanna do their own things.

In fact, I have an article on this on our website, called Sleeping With Your Girlfriend’. And the implication of it is quite frequently, atheists wanna be atheists because they don’t want the moral accountability  or the moral restraints they perceive Christianity puts on them.

Many are not [in pursuit of truth after all]. No, they’re not. In fact, let me add one other thing. I was at the University of Maryland, not long ago, and I was talking to an atheist afterward and I asked the atheist if they’d even read the Gospels. And he was flummoxed. He never read them, and I said, „Look, I don’t care where you are in your religious upbringing, or what your thoughts are, Jesus Christ was the most influential human being in history. Don’t tell me you’re on a search for truth, if you have not even looked into what He allegedly had said. You’re not on a search for truth, you’re on a quest to suppress the truth. How can you not look into the most influential human being in history, if you’re on a search for truth?
