About Our Group:
Our group discusses life's most important questions, such as:
"Where did we come from?"
"Why are we here?"
"Does God exist?"
We learn lots of important things in college but let's face it, how many classes directly discuss or provide relevant evidence to these questions?
Our group presents relevant evidence and arguments and then discusses the topic of the week. As the name implies, the focus of the group is to show that Christian faith is reasonable. Early in the year we'll focus on arguments for the existence of God from science, history and philosophy and then consider some challenges to Christianity from skeptics. Some of the classic arguments for the existence of God have received increasing attention lately due to discoveries in physics for the beginning of the Universe and the fine-tuning of the laws and constants to support life. One of the important Christian topics we'll discuss is the Trinity, the concept of God as the persons and 1 being. We'll explain how this concept of the Trinity is not incoherent or contradictory. Only about half of the weeks will be science-focused – we also examine historical, archaeological and philosophical issues.
We don't claim to have all the answers but want to try to tackle the tough questions and bring speakers who have researched topics in detail. People from all religions or skeptics are welcome! The more diversity in perspectives, the more interesting the discussion! Too often people tend to make uninformed decisions in these important areas – they may not even realize how much evidence is relevant to these deep philosophical questions.

“Thank you for leading Reasonable Faith and planning our weekly meetings. As a first-year student at UT Dallas, Reasonable Faith has really helped with my transition to college. The leaders of the group are not only very knowledgeable and articulate, but humble and willing to share what they know. This creates an environment that really fosters discussion and learning. The guest speakers give helpful insights and encourage me to look for more information. Reasonable Faith has strengthened my critical thinking through exploration of life's fundamental questions and enabled me to be more engaged with my mind (Matthew 22:37).“ Naomi
" I'm yet to be disappointed by the substantive lectures and presentations given at this club's meetings and the general level of courtesy, patience and intelligence of the members. It was my pleasure to revisit with professor McGrew. And nice to see some familiar faces. Despite our theological differences, I encourage all of you to keep up the good work of scholarship." Averroes (an agnostic/atheist who later become a Christian)
Here are some video testimonies of UTD students who have become followers of Christ despite their previous agnostic or atheistic mindset.
