The Christian Atheist is devoted to exploring all of life as it relates to faith in Christ. Philosophy, psychology, science, art and literature all contribute to our pursuit of Truth and the life that we are called to live, to the adventure of discovering the world and our place within it. The Author of the universe speaks to us through many means, and we try to attune our minds to all of them here, to discover and live the Way to Life through the Word, spoken, written and experienced. It IS possible to have respect for science, a fully rational outlook, a 21st century worldview AND be Christian.

    85 ”The Funeral of a Great Myth,” or Evolution and Hegelian Optimism

    85 ”The Funeral of a Great Myth,” or Evolution and Hegelian Optimism

    We examine C. S. Lewis’s essay, ”The Funeral of a Great Myth.” I argue that Lewis was premature to announce this myth’s death, and that what he calls the Myth is actually the Hegelian philosophical worldview that has come to dominate our culture.

    When you’ve listened to this episode of the Christian Atheist, join Jenny and I as we discuss it on our ”No Compromise” podcast this Thursday, and join us throughout this season as we continue to explore the ever-deepening Mystery that is our Great God.

    Our next Lewis essay will be ”Historicism.” Please listen beforehand to our Simple Gifts reading of it.

    No Compromise #28: The Ever-Deepening Mystery

    No Compromise #28: The Ever-Deepening Mystery

    We examine Lewis’s essay, originally entitled ”Onward Christian Spacemen” by his publisher, but renamed by Walter Hooper, ”The Seeing Eye.” In our series, ”The Evident, Evidence and Faith,” we also addressed the issue of why some find God everywhere, and some find Him nowhere, why for some everything is evidence for His existence, and for some there is no evidence. The search for Reality, Truth and Beauty either draws us ever deeper into the glorious Mystery, or claims to dissipate it in the pretense of knowledge. The first attitude is that of Socrates and Western theism, the latter that of gnostic scientism and atheism, which pervades our socio-cultural world today.

    After listening to No Compromise, listen to Christian Atheist 82, and join us this season as we explore the ever-deepening Mystery that is our Great God.

    Next Lewis essay: ”The Poison of Subjectivism.” We will have a Christian Atheist episode on Monday, followed by a No Compromise on Thursday. Please listen beforehand to our Simple Gifts reading, or read it on your own.
