Are you Prepared?

Timeless truths on apologetics. We live in a very pluralistic culture. The prevailing Judeo-Christian values of two generations ago have diminished. That is why Christians must learn and practice 1 Peter 3:15, “but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;”

First we must be genuine. “Sanctify Christ as Lord” means to set apart Christ as King of your life. There is nothing that turns unbelievers away from the Gospel message like a phony “Christian.” Then we are to be prepared. We are to make preparation ahead of time! For what? To give a “defense” of the hope that is in us. The word “defense” is the Greek word from which apologetics is derived. Then we are to share with tact and respect. I hope that you are prepared to share the reason for the hope that is in you.
