Mid-Week Challenge

Do you think you could pass a basic Christian Theology test?  Most people are pretty confident in what they believe but the findings of a new study show us that although we might be confident in what we believe, we have no idea where our beliefs actually comes from.  Ask any Christian and they will say their faith and belief comes from the Bible but in reality it is a mixture of Biblical ideas and popular culture application.  (You can read a summary of the findings and examples here: https://pjmedia.com/faith/2016/10/24/12-lies-american-evangelicals-believe/?singlepage=true).

 Studies like these go to show how important it is to be sure you know the source of your belief system, especially your beliefs about God.  One of the biggest possible fallouts of popular culture faith is coming across as inconsistent.  The doubters of the world have access to the same Bible we do.  When they read for themselves and then find our practice as inconsistent it minimizes the effectiveness of our witness.  We need to know what we believe and why.  Studies like these are embarrassing but are a great wakeup call for Evangelical Christians to do a better job of studying their Bible. 

But in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to articulate a defense to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But respond with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who slander you will be put to shame by your good behavior in Christ.… 1 Peter 3:15&16
