The more I look around I don't see this true knowledge and understanding of the faith. It makes me wonder if I really know the things that I should. So that I'm not vague, let me give some examples. How would you answer these questions intelligently?
* Is the Bible really God's Word without errors and flaws, or is it simply an inspiring book, but not one that should be taken literally?
* If asked why you believe that God created the world in the way in which the Bible describes instead of the process of evolution, what kind of answer would you give?
* If while sharing your faith with someone that said to you, "I believe that all ways lead to God and there is no one way." how would you respond?
* If told, "The Bible was put together by men who picked which books would be in there and which books wouldn't, plus many books were left out." How would you answer this claim?
Skeptics believe they can pick on Christians intellectually because they don't believe we are capable and equipped to answer their questions. I personally think that needs to change. Beginning in 2010 I'm going to be diving deep into a bunch of teaching series that will be aimed at equipping Christians to give an account for their faith and at the same time, answering questions that skeptics may be asking.
Questions for you to answer: What things do you personally feel unequipped to answer about your faith? What subjects would you like to see taught on this issue? I would love to hear your answers.
