Doubt your skepticism

People act like unbelief is the default option—that if they discover perceived problems in Christianity or find arguments for God’s existence to be unpersuasive that they can become a “skeptic” and have no burden of proof. But there is no worldview neutrality. Atheism is typically shorthand for metaphysical naturalism. That needs to be argued for (not simply assumed), and it needs to be defended against all the objections that are raised against it. You may discover that you have jumped out of the boat of Christianity onto what you think is dry land only to realize you’ve landed in a sinking ship.
