Sarah teaching Bright Lights last Monday night on how to answer some “tough” questions:
“Where did Cain Get His Wife?”
“If we all go back to one man and one woman, how’d we get so many different ‘races’?”
“How do you explain finding fossils that some people say date back over 300 million years, if the Bible is correct and the earth is young?”
“Since numerous apelike fossils have been found of what some scientists say are human ancestors, doesn’t this prove that man has evolved?”
All these questions have simple answers! We as Christians don’t simply have “blind faith,” that the Bible is true, we have a reasonable faith that we can explain! In fact, everything we see in science, geology, archeology, chemistry, etc. is consistent with what the Bible has already stated to be true.
In our Bright Lights and Light Shop groups over the summer, Sarah and Stephen are going to take some time at each meeting to teach simple, easy-to-recall answers to a variety of tough questions. It’s going to be a fun challenge!
For all of you who don’t attend Bright Lights or Light Shop, let me encourage you to take the time to learn these answers too! If you are an “audio learner” like me, you may find it helpful to listen to some of Answers in Genesis online videos. One idea is to listen to them while you are organizing your room (makes it a little more fun, at least!), washing dishes, etc.
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.” (1 Peter 3:15)
I always love debating and learning answers to the big questions. I’m glad that Sarah and Stephen are equipping others to be wiser than their enemies. We are in a war of worldviews- and more ‘soldiers’ are definitely needed. Press on!
Wow, that’s really great that you’re helping others know how to give an answer about the Hope (Jesus Christ) that is within us:) I think knowledge of science and reasoning is essential for defending our faith. I’ll be sure to listen to some of those “Answers in Genesis” videos.
Thanks for posting, Grace!
