Discussing God With An Agnostic

by in Features, Formation, Sliding Gallery


You’ve likely got friends and/or have met people that are of the opinion that God can’t be proven. They aren’t pro God or against God, they’re just not sure either way if He’s legit or not. That friend or person would be considered to be what is called an Agnostic.

HOW DO YOU DISCUSS GOD WITH AN AGNOSTIC?
That’s a great question! Recently we told you about an app from Dare 2 Share that helps you to share your faith! It’s a pretty sick app, if you haven’t checked it out yet, get deets here.

This app has a section in it where it links to a resource that helps you to discuss your faith with people who have different beliefs about how they understand the world/life/God/existence (called ‘Worldview’ see our article here). It explores how to have conversation with 13 people, each with a different worldview/belief. It’s under the section called ‘How 2 Share’.

For each person/worldview you’re given a basic description, questions to get the conversation going, areas to admire, a summary of that person’s core beliefs and tips for how to share your faith with that person.

AGNOSTIC HIGHLIGHTS
Here’s some highlights on how to engage an Agnostic person in conversation about God.
Q to ask – How did you arrive at the spiritual place you find yourself now?

Areas to Admire – their willingness to ask honest questions about life and God.

Beliefs – God can’t be proven or disproven, so in the practical sense they basically don’t believe in God.

Tips – Focus on the observable evidence of God that is built in to creation like how ‘fine tuned’ the universe is to support life, otherwise we wouldn’t even exist. This fine tuning simply could not have happened by accident.

Remember… you can’t argue someone to faith in Christ, but you can (and should) live such a Christlike life that those around you sense, see and experience something different and counter-cultural in you, which opens the door for you to explain the ‘evidence’.
