We’re launching a new video series today over at Truth on Campus.
Entitled “Honest Answers” (we’re trying to call it “an occasional vlog”) the videos will focus on a question Christians commonly get asked–and we’ll try to give a short, thought through answer. It’s designed to be evangelistic, in the sense of commending the gospel to people by clearing up common misunderstandings.
Whenever I’m in public talking with people about the gospel, I’m, always reminded of the high level of ignorance about anything to do with the message of Jesus that exists in our day. And with that high level of ignorance comes a lot of bad information. We know people won’t automatically love us if they have good info (nor will they automatically love Jesus; see John chapters 14 through 17). Even so, for our part we see it as an act of loving our neighbors to seek to smooth the path for them to receive the gospel by showing them that some of the reasons they might think they want to avoid Jesus are just mistaken.
The first installment of Honest Answers answers the common assertion that Christians pick and choose verses to criticize the morality of others, and then conveniently ignore other verses when they read the bible for themselves.
It ran a little long, and future episodes will be shorter, but we think the info is all solid enough to leave in. Let us know what you think about it, and all the other videos we’re releasing.
