When we asked for your ideas for challenge questions a while back, Adrian suggested one on God’s hiddenness: “Why is God so hidden? I’m a rational unbeliever, so if God really wanted to be in a loving relationship with me, He’d make himself a lot more obvious.”
1. If there is a God, he is perfectly loving.
2. If a perfectly loving God exists, reasonable nonbelief does not occur.
3. Reasonable nonbelief occurs.
4. No perfectly loving God exists (from 2 and 3).
5. Hence, there is no God (from 1 and 4).
So this week, let’s take on Schellenberg. How do you answer this challenge? We’ll hear Brett’s response on Thursday.
