Quote by Jordan Monge

April 7, 2013

There was an interesting article called, The Atheist’s Dilemma, posted last Thursday on the Christianity Today website. It was written by Jordan Monge and is her testimony of how she went from being an atheist to a Christian. I found the following comments particularly insightful:

“My Christian friends in high school avoided talking to me about religion because they anticipated that I would tear down their poorly constructed arguments. And I did.”

“He prodded me on how inconsistent I was as an atheist who nonetheless believed in right and wrong as objective, universal categories.”

“I had always believed in the big Bang. But I was blissfully unaware that the man who first proposed it, Georges Lemaître, was a Catholic priest. And I’d happily ignored the rabbit trail of a problem of what caused the Big Bang, and what caused that cause, and so on.”

“The fact that I had failed to adhere to my own ethical standards filled me with deep regret. Yet I could do nothing to right these wrongs.”
