Defense for Christianity

Yes we recognize the horror of the crimes done in the name of Christianity because we can see them etched on world history. As Christian, I am personally ashamed of all of those. But we must also recognize, with the same vivid intensity, the good things that Christianity brought to our personal lives and the entire world. If we don’t, we will be guilty of selective intellectualism, highlighting the things we don’t like and forgetting the things that actually did us so much good. That, I think, is like cutting the base of the tree while you are nicely perched on one of its branches. If the whole thing crumbles down, thanks to all your tirades, you might find yourself suffering the most fatal blows of the crash.
