The West has become permeated with a culture that doesn't 'do' God. Many people assert that we have progressed, while Christians are still clinging to outdated ideas. Our guest today will take a look at the contemporary attacks on Christianity and marriage, showing why we can and must' continue in the faith' (Col.1:23).
How did we get our Bible? How can we trust its contents? Our guest will join us today to answer common questions about the writing, copying, canonizing, and translating of the Bible and give us the tools to interpret the evidence about God’s word. Join us to learn how to better contend for the faith!
