Mans truth is irrelevant in light of God’s truth.
Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.”
Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’”
- Jesus never existed
- The Bible is just a book of myths written by men
- Nothing supernatural can happen
- Paul created Christianity
- Etc., etc. etc.
When Christian’s asset their faith is true, most unbelievers rightly ask for an explanation why their assertions are true.
When challenged with assertions, Christians tend to try and reply with a meaningful answer. But why should Christians give reasonable answers to unreasonable assertions? Often times the objections people raise are just smokescreens used to avoid their real root issues with Christianity. Any assertion should be replied to with a simple “why?” You’ll be surprised what little information people commonly have to back up their assertions.
Unfortunately, the same can be said for most Christians. It does not have to be this way. With a little effort, every Christian can be able to at least explain (not just asset) the basics of the faith. My Why Jesus study, available for free in the sidebar, makes this easy.
- Why is Jesus necessary for salvation? Lessons 1 & 2.
- Why and how to share and defend my faith? Lessons 3,4, & 5.
1 Peter 3:15 Always be ready to give an answer for the hope you have within you, but do so with gentleness and respect.
