High School Apologetics Study: March 8, 2020, Faith

March 2, 2020, 7:00 PM

Faith. What does that word mean to you? To many, the Christian faith is a blind faith. They think Christians are supposed to believe in spite of, or even against, evidence. There are even some Christians who think that if they take a blind leap of faith, then their faith is stronger than that of one who takes time to examine the evidence.

From the standpoint of apologetics, the word "faith" simply means to trust God in light of the evidence. John backed up this statement in his gospel when he wrote, "but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name." (John 20:31). In other words, God gave us the Bible so we could read the evidence for ourselves and make the decision to trust in Jesus Christ based upon this evidence and not on blind faith. 

The text of our study for this week is John 20:19-31. I encourage you to take the time to read this passage before class. While you are at it, memorize verses 30-31 (I heard a rumor that there may be some stickers if you can recite the verses to Sandra). Also, be sure to check out this video that introduces the lesson - Journey: Advocates - Faith

Don't forget to bring your books and invite a friend to join us! 

See you Sunday! Kenny B.
