Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Have an answer

Peter was the one who was on the Mount and Transfiguration, heard the voice of God, and saw the glorified Christ. He was the one who stood up on the Day of Pentecost and boldly preached the gospel to those who had a hand in the murder of the Messiah. He’s the one who preached the gospel to a crowd that gathered after God performed a miracle on a man who was lame from his birth. He had proven that he was always ready to preach the words of everlasting life, and he was the one who exhorted us to always be ready to preach Christ: “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear” ( 1 Peter 3;15).

The Psalmist touched on the key to having answers for the skeptics that surround us. He said, “So shall I have an answer for him who reproaches me, for I trust in Your word” (Psalm 119:42, NKJV). If we trust in the Word of God and we will have an answer for those who enquire of our faith. The Bible is sufficient to answer every difficult question this unbelieving world may throw at us. Has someone a question about suffering, creation, the nature of God, the state of the world, the afterlife and a thousand and one other issues? If we trust in the Word of God, we will have an answer. It may not be the answer that the skeptic is wanting, but it is the truth and that’s what matters, and that is sufficient for those who are truly seeking it.

To be continued.
