The Christian Act of Faith & Atheist Misunderstandings


“A completely blind belief is a belief that is not called forth by the object of belief… For a Christian, true belief in God is a response to a prior divine call – so there’s an arrow that comes from God to the believer first – and your act of faith [is] carr[ied] forth, it’s evoked by that call.”

In this presentation, Dr Brendan Tuffett refutes the claim that Christianity is a blind belief and demonstrates against naturalists that the Christian type of belief is rational.


This presentation was part of The Christopher Dawson Centre for Cultural Studies’ 2015 Colloquium on the theme “Ideas Dangerous to Atheism”, hosted in Hobart, Australia.
