What We’re About

Ratio Fidei is Latin for the “Reason of Faith”, or Rational Faith. Our mission is to put forth, examine and defend the historical philosophical and scientific evidence for Christianity through the discipline of apologetics that integrates faith and reason. We want to help students like you follow Jesus Christ intelligently, loving God with both your heart and your mind. (Matt. 22:37)

Qur'an to Jesus in 3 Hops

How the Qur'an confirms the authenicity of the gospels

I often wonder how different my beliefs would be if I grew up under different circumstances. Am I a Christian only because I was raised by Christians? What if I had been raised by atheists or by Hindus? Would I come to the same conclusions that I arrive at now?  

I have even made attempts in the past to clear my slate (as best I can) and start from scratch. It is important to examine our own beliefs. Why do I believe in God? Why do I believe Jesus is God? If I start over, would I re-assemble the same construct that I have now or would it look different? While we are (admittedly) incapable of entirely setting aside beliefs, one can attempt to imagine different starting points in life and explore the reasoning premised on the beliefs we hold. Imagine that you were a Muslim (are perhaps you are). If the Qur'an alone were your starting point then where would it guide you?
