God Exists. So What?

Religion is still ‘in’

Those who have been fooled into thinking that religion belongs to the past need to look at the facts.

Some 84% of the world’s population identifies with a religious group. People who identify with religious groups are generally younger, and they have more children than those with no religious affiliation, so the world is getting more religious, not less.

The Christian religion is as much part of the age of reason as modern science. Christianity lies at the roots of the age of reason. Christians believe that God gave us his reason precisely so that humans can know him. Anything else that humanity can know, including science, has the capacity to lead to him.

However, what is important isn’t so much identifying with a group but what people do with their religious belief. That is why I think the second half of the God Exists book is the more important part.
