In our post-Christian age, the old answers for skeptics are no longer cutting it. Why? Because they largely seek to answer the wrong questions. Our world is changing, and while the gospel never changes, the way we talk about it and learn about it must. Today our guest will answer both classic and bleeding-edge questions that skeptics have about the faith, such as: Is there a God? Why do the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus matter? Why is there so much suffering in the world? Join us for a conversation that not only answers the questions of the skeptics but also helps us better contend for the faith.
Today our guest will encourage us to see the dangers of a false witness among Christians, especially when dealing with disagreements, which can cause damage to individuals, the church, and the good name of Jesus. By exploring what it means to be a true witness in the Bible and the Christian church, he will emphasize the power of words both divine and human and explains how our Christian responsibility is to honor others in truth and respect, especially when we disagree. Don’t miss this timely and crucial conversation.
