Vital signs- Saturday, May 15th, 2021


But 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)

 


As Christians, we are instructed to keep the faith and give it away. We must be ready to give an account for what makes us different. We must learn how to answer a skeptic.

There are four basic propositions that can help us when giving an account for our faith. Today we will consider the first two.

First, forego the folly of fools. Foolishness isn’t a lack of knowledge, rather it is evidence of moral depravity. A fool is not an honest doubter; he is simply hostile toward the truth. When someone shows himself to be a fool, we should not argue with him; we should tell him what God says and go our way.

Second, we need to learn the limits of logic. To give a defense for our faith does not mean to apologize; it means to give an answer as one would give in a court of law. We know creation’s complex design speaks of God’s existence, as does the moral law of the universe. But we must keep in mind that while logic is a very valuable tool, it can only take us so far in answering a skeptic.


• In what ways are all people foolish before coming to know Christ?

• Why is it important to recognize that logic will not answer every question of a skeptic when it comes to God?


Take some time this week to consider how you might answer if asked to give an account for your faith.
