“The Reason for the Hope”

 Dr. Jim Miller

If you’re a Christian living in 21st century America, you know what it’s like to face serious questions about your faith. More than a few of us wonder how well-equipped we are to respond faithfully and helpfully to those who ask questions like these:

  • Are there compelling reasons to believe that Jesus ever lived?
  • Are the gospels historically reliable?
  • What about people who’ve never heard of Jesus? Will they go to hell?
  • How can you trust the Bible when it’s 2500 years old?
  • Doesn't Christianity degrade women?
  • Aren’t Christians homophobic?
  • Isn't this faith outdated by science?
  • How could a loving God send people to hell?

Dr. Miller will address these and other questions in the “Pastor’s Class” this fall.

The Apostle Peter sets out our privilege and responsibility:

In your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy —always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect... (I Peter 3:15)
