A young man asked me recently, “If Christianity is so great, why can’t Christians explain the basics of their faith?”
It’s easier for pastors to offer sermonettes and pithy sayings than reasoned and meaningful explanations.
It’s easier for Christians to share personal opinions and experiences than Biblical truths.
It’s easier for churches to hide behind cultural relevance and fear of offending than to proclaim the unadulterated Word of God.
Rubbing some “bacon on it” is easier, but easier is seldom the best, most truthful, or most Biblical answer to anything.
How can the world take the gospel seriously when we don’t take seriously our evangelical standard that the Bible is the sole authority for faith and practice? There is no reason for Christian ignorance. Read and study your Bible. Find and attend a Bible-teaching church. Know what you believe and why you believe it.
Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear (1 Peter 3:15).
