Stopping the Train

February 9, 2013

Comments Off on Stopping the Train

When I read the story of Stephen (Acts 6 and 7), I see similarity in his situation and ours. We are trying to help others see the truth, only to be rebuffed. Those who have an audience are able to wrest the Scriptures just enough to create doubt in a weaker believer’s mind. Many atheists know what’s in the Bible better than many Christians! This is how those who support homosexual marriages, abortion, evolution and more are making progress in getting this stuff into the mainstream.

The defense to such attacks on the Bible has at least the following ingredients:

  1. Study (2 Timothy 2:15)
  2. Be ready to speak on the arguments used against the Bible (2 Timothy 4:2)
  3. Quit remaining silent! (Romans 1:16)

We each have control of these building blocks. Together we can slow the momentum the godless seem to be gaining.
