If I remember correctly, in The Case for Christ, a man becomes Christian after being previously skeptical. I haven’t seen the video for a while, but I remember watching it as a Christian and experiencing something odd. While the “case” seemed compelling and historically intriguing, I was mystified by the idea that the man didn’t exactly change because of what he discovered, he changed for his wife. Apparently, she was distraught because she was a believer and he was not, and the family was falling apart. To rectify the situation, he endeavored to find evidence for the “Case for Christ.” Towards the end of the film, the man states something to the effect of, “How could I go on hurting my family, because I didn’t believe. Now that I do, look how happy we are.”
I find that I am in the same position in some ways, but there is a difference: I am not willing to abandon the truth because of sentimentalism.
Personally, I don’t think the man in The Case for Christ was ever skeptical, primarily because I know that Christian apologists utilize media to propagate a message just like any other group. Additionally, I find that while human beings do need each other in ways that are emotional and non-scientific, I don’t believe in the perpetuation of stagnant religious philosophy to do so.
