How to Reason with Christians & Conservatives

How do you reason with Christians & Conservatives?

You can’t!

I know what you’re thinking…” well this is going to be a really short post”.

The issue here is we are trying to compare apples to oranges.  Actually, it’s more like comparing any other complete opposites in life. It isn’t just fruit were talking about here, it’s more like comparing apples to French fries!

One’s healthy and one’s junk food. One’s natural and one’s man made.

My point is this – you will never convince someone that their faith is wrong by trying to argue with them.

Think about how Christians talk about why they have faith and they will say something like, “I know in my heart of hearts that it’s true”.

Notice they didn’t say I know in my mind of minds.

That’s because they are dealing with emotions NOT reason!

Religion and faith is not math or science.

It’s not about changing their beliefs with reason. Beliefs are usually emotionally developed, and become practices, behaviors and habits. And they usually start being instilled in us at a very young age.
