The Need for A Reasonable Explanation

The Bible assumes God.  Genesis 1:1 states in the begginning “God was.”  The existence of God should be self evident to all.  Sadly,  sin has blinded the eyes of many in our age.

This means Christians need to prepare themselves to give an explanation for their belief in the Almighty.  Peters says as much:  “Always be prepared to give an answer to the hope within you” (I Peter 3:15).  Our job is not to convince, but to simple reasonable explain* our faith.

The following series of posts hope to do just that.  We hope to begin by providing reasonable (at least to my mind) explanations as to the existence of God.  Although we will not argue from Scripture in this series, we are convinced that Scripture supports the notion that through engaging our universe man can come to know certain truths about the Creator.  After that I hope we can continue our journey by reasonably explaining other aspects of the Christian faith (nature of Scripture, resurrection of Christ, etc…).  Let’s grow together.

* Reasonable explain is a better translation of “give an answer” of the Greek word apologian in the opinion of this Bible student.

  1. Hey Wesley,

    I am really enjoying your website and look forward to the insights you have.

    I am especially interested in this topic from two different angles. One, from the angle of how we can be sure that we have the true word of God in our present day Bible (what happened along the way-mistakes?) Two, from the angle of how the Bible can be proven from historical records.

    These are my biggest challenges when it comes to reaching out to share God with others.

    Keep up the good work!

    Jan,

    I’m glad you are enjoying it so far. This has been a great outlet to share some of what I study with others. We will get to those topics eventually in our apologetic session. I look forward to learning from your insights as we study together.

    Wesley
