Sometimes objections to Christian beliefs are so persuasive, that the beliefs have to be modified to remain credible. For instance, to say that God is both loving and therefore forgiving yet just and therefore unforgiving, is such a contradiction as to be unintelligible. I have addressed objections of this kind in the previous section of this website, on Credible Christianity.

But some objections to Christian beliefs are less persuasive. For instance, is God to blame for natural disasters? Well yes, but they are a consequence of laws of nature that He maintains so that the world is intelligible to us. The objection that if God loved us He would prevent natural disasters is not clearly valid.

To consider objections of this kind I offer a few papers below. Not all objections to Christian beliefs can be answered conclusively. The papers simply offer a few thoughts in their defense.
