  ‎This is a famous but very controversial piece by Bertrand Russell. It was a lecture delivered in at National Secular Society, London. Later in it was part of a book with the same title and reached international fame. He examines one by one several highly regarded arguments for the existenc /5(). Rather, it's a mere summary of the four most important reasons I am not a Christian. This is only the beginning of the story, not the whole of it.[ 1 ] That's what John asked for: a simple but well-written explanation of why I am not a Christian.

I watched Christian TV and enjoyed listening to televangelists preach; I read Christian books and magazines – especially about biblical prophecies, spiritual/supernatural/near death experiences and the end of the world, I especially liked Rick Joyner’s book The Final Quest and was terrified by Mary K. Baxter’s book A Divine Revelation of Hell. WHY I AM A CHRISTIAN by Dr. Warren F. Larson. There are three reasons why the author is a Christian and why he feels he made the right choice. These are rooted in the first book of the Bible and traceable throughout its entirety.

  In “Why I Am Not A Christian”, Russell proceeds to critique each of these arguments. None of them escape his scathing scrutiny. Of the argument from the First Cause, Russell remarks that, if everything must have a cause, then God cannot be the uncaused cause by those following in the intellectual lineage of Aquinas.   Five Reasons Why I Am A Christian I think it is of dire importance that everyone, not just Christians, know why they believe what they believe. Often, when faced with defending one’s beliefs people begin to grab for ideas from thin air.
