What is the Meaning of My Life as a Follower of Christ?
“Honor the Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you. However, do this with gentleness and respect.” (1 Peter 3:15-16) As Christians, the challenges to our faith are fired at many angles by a skeptical world. If we are honest with ourselves, we even face these struggles within our own hearts. The questions are hard, and they are many: Is there a real purpose to my life? How do I really know God exists? What is the Bible story really about? Is the God of the Old Testament the same as the God of New Testament? How can we know for sure that the Bible is God’s actual word and can be trusted? What do we do with Biblical knowledge? How or can we know that Christianity is true compared to other religions? What is the best way to share my faith? Though these questions are daunting, you don’t need to be discouraged. We will dig into the Bible and your Christian faith to find the key to these answers. By the end of this class, you will be empowered in your own belief and in your engagement with a skeptical world.
