About the author
My name is John A. David. I am a 29-year-old graphics designer, a Bible teacher, and a former closet atheist-agnostic.
I am a doctor in theology, and I play a lot of video games.
I also ramble a lot; sometimes I just stop writing and learn. I believe God’s marvels are breathtaking, from the timeless laws of physics and the diversity of life through evolutionary biology, I am fascinated and want to learn more.
I am an avid reader, a great fan of horror fiction. I love photography. I occasionally play my old guitar, and Chess at other times.
I welcome all kinds of discussion, as long as they are civil.
About the Blog
The critical eye is about handling questions regarding Genuine Christian faith, atheism, and aberrant Christianity.
I started to write this blog to offer a defense of Christian Faith, Critique of Christian practice and a critical look at atheism.
Although born and raised in a conservative Christian home, I remained an utter skeptic throughout my teen years and had atheistic convictions that turned agnostic at one point and somewhere flirted with deism as well. The blog is the result of my struggle, and it covers the observations made and the points learned along my journey to faith.
I contend that “faith is unseen but not blind”, and although I have my doubts and questions about a lot of things in religion, which any intellectually honest individual would have, I hope one day Christ will make them known to us.
I wish to help those who struggle with faith and present some reasoning to those who have lost it that there is indeed a difference between religion and God, that mainstream Christianity has taken some turns for the worst. That there are valid answers, present that I believe, make a strong case for faith regardless of how the church behaves. And of course, why I find atheism highly unsatisfying.
