The real point: C. S. Lewis and the Question of Truth

Here. 

The real question is whether Christianity is true, not if it is useful or good for people to have.

true but I don;t think those are entirely separate issues, If I asked atheists how do you know science is true they will say "because it works." I find them arguing truth in terms of function a lot, trey will go "you are using a computer arent you?"

btw the question on Metacrock's blog:

how do we know God is simple?

Slavery works. Pseudoscience works. Inefficiency works. Everything works toward an end but that end can either be true or false with respect to other questions you are asking about it. Is inefficiency good for business? Is slavery immoral? Is Christ the redeemer?

first of call none of those thing work necessarily, of course it depends upon what you want them to do. I was talking about form and function. When something fulfills its purpose well and the way it's suppose to that's a confiscation that the theory of what was being done is true,

That's why Christians use sometimes used testimonies about how God fixed up my life and made it better, That's part of what knowing God is supposed to do for you, if it dosed it that's a reason to think God is real. It's proof, it;s warrant,

Hi Joe,

Do you have a link to your conversion story? Couldn't find it easily at your website.
