Today on The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green pulls “Know Why You Believe” by Paul Little from the bookshelf to take a look inside.
If in today’s world you believe the Bible is from God and it is TRUTH, that is a good thing. However, if the time comes when you want to become a disciple, a learner, of what you believe to be true, then pushing forward is mandatory. If you desire to become a defender of WHAT you believe and taking the aggressive role in being able to present your case with conviction, then it is vital to know WHY you believe.
Global society is working very hard to wipe out absolutes from our history and moral values. We find ourselves regressing in our growth if we cannot understand and convey knowledge that will stand to man’s logic, reason, and rationalization. If what you believe cannot be proven by why you believe, then your creditability is destroyed. It is just another opinion.
When we are established in What we believe and Why we believe our foundation will be solid and well pleasing to God. Furthermore, we will be equipped to do the good works we have been called to do and able to stand against the attacks from the enemy. Knowing What and Why in our theology keeps us from being deceived because the Truth abiding in us sets us free. Without a solid foundation we will be tossed about, falling into unbelief and confusion.
Listen carefully to the challenging discussion that cause us to question Why we believe.
