Does Belief Need a Reality Check? | Sean McDowell & Matthew Vess The Veritas Forum

    • Religion & Spirituality

Sometimes belief can get you the job, secure the win, or help you make a difference. And, sometimes, belief doesn't seem to help at all. So, can we know which beliefs are worth believing in? And, when do we just need to take a leap of faith?


In today’s episode, our speakers wrestle with these questions. Psychology professor Matthew Vess (Texas A&M) is in dialogue with Sean McDowell (Biola), a professor of Apologetics. They discuss how certainty and belief interact and whether the claims of Christianity could ever be worth dying for.


This Forum event was held at Texas A&M in Spring 2023. Thank you to the Forum planning team who made this discussion possible!
