Some of you are either laughing, offended, or a little bit of both
But this is something Christians need to see.

The point is that everyone has an opinion about Christianity, and a lot of people have misconceptions about what Christianity actually IS.  Here’s an exercise for you:  Go to Google.com and type “Christianity is” in the search bar.  Then let the “Google suggestions” suggest some searches for you.  What do you find?

Christianity is…false
Christianity is…a lie
Christianity is…evil
Christianity is…stupid

You can easily add to the list: bigotry, exclusive, and ignorant.  These are all too common misconceptions about what Christianity is, and what it produces and leads to.  How do you respond?  What do you say when professors in classrooms claim that the Old Testament was just borrowed from other religions, that they have proof of it?  That science disproves the Bible?  That religion was born out of ignorance of the natural world?

“GOD IS FOR PEOPLE WHO CANT COPE WITH LIFE.”

As a Christian, these are things you are going to hear in life.  And as a Christian, you need to have answers.   1 Peter 3:15 “…but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.”  We are not called to believe in God just BECAUSE- we’re called to believe in God because He is the truth.  Are you the person in class who sits there silently as a professor belittles your faith and misleads your fellow classmates?  Are you not able to give a reason for the hope that is in you?  The world is full of the lost and blind, those do not yet see the truth of the Gospel.  So how can we idly stand by while people are furthering ignorance and even fed lies?

ARMOR, an apologetic group at CCV, is starting a series called “Christianity is…”  The focus of it is to arm Christians with knowledge and reason so that they are able to respond intelligently, tactfully, and respectfully to the claims and assaults against Christianity in an academic setting like college, or even a personal setting with a friend.  If you believe in the Gospel (the good news), then there is nothing more important than that news.

But the world demands answers…are you ready for the questions?
