Why Christians Aren’t the Only People Who Shoulder a Burden of Proof (Video)

In this video from a message delivered at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, J. Warner Wallace addresses a common challenge for Christian believers: Since we are the ones who claim that God exists, are we the only ones who shoulder the burden of proof? If everyone who makes a claim must then defend their claim with evidence, does this mean that people who don’t believe in God have no burden of proof? As believers, we need to be ready to help our skeptical friends assess the evidence as described in the book, Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith.

For more information about the scientific and philosophical evidence pointing to a Divine Creator, please read God’s Crime Scene: A Cold-Case Detective Examines the Evidence for a Divinely Created Universe. This book employs a simple crime scene strategy to investigate eight pieces of evidence in the universe to determine the most reasonable explanation. The book is accompanied by an eight-session God’s Crime Scene DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.
