It can be difficult to live out our faith in the midst of a culture that values so many things other than God. There are countless opinions about faith and religion, and people outside the church are unfamiliar with the teachings of the Bible. Even many believers do not know Scripture as well as they should, and the results are disastrous. Christians are ill-equipped to provide the answers our culture and communities desperately need. In this study, we’ll learn how living out our faith requires us to look to God’s Word for answers and not to popular opinion or the internet. The questions we’ll raise are those skeptics often ask, and while they may appear difficult, the Bible provides clear answers that will help us remain strong and point others to Jesus.
