The truths of Christianity are attacked viciously in secular schools and mocked by many in our culture today. Universities teach that Jesus’ resurrection is a myth, that the world began without a Creator and that homosexuality is acceptable, and students often struggle to respond to these assertions. Instead of “being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks” (1 Peter 3:15), many Christians find themselves unable to withstand the constant objections to their faith.
At Activate, we finished an apologetics series called “Contend,” which aimed to equip our students to stand up to those who oppose Christianity. Jude tells us “to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3), and this series helped us to do that. By answering the most controversial and difficult questions students are asking, we gained confidence about our faith and were moved with compassion to communicate the truth of our faith.
We need to have answers for those who ask. We need to defend the truth against the lies of this world. We need to contend.
