We knew there was a visiting preacher, so we will try not to let his sermon affect out view of the church. But as the man said "If he was the regular preacher, we would never go to the church again."
This man was visiting to talk about creationism. I myself am a creationist (I believe that life was created by God, as out of the book of Genesis), yet not as educated about it as I should be. So I was excited to hear more about it.
|Darwin and Hitler...the perfect reason to be a creationist, right? (Insert sarcasm)|
As I was fuming listening to him, it did inspire me. Apologetics, or the defense and establishment of the Christian faith, is such an important aspect of being a Christian. So many people have questions about Christianity, especially relating to modern issues. And I truly believe that God can stand up to any questions. That being said, I know that I cannot adequately help answer a lot of these for people.
Hearing this preacher showed me exactly how I do not want to defend my faith. It also showed me that I have a lot of studying to do. To find out what the bible says on certain topics. To truly understand what I believe on certain topics.
So yes, this man had an apologetics fail. But it did inspire me to work on my apolgetics skills. Not only to converse with others more effectively, but to learn more about my God. And to be able to share exactly why I believe what I believe.
Thank you preacher, for showing me how not to show your point.
Love and Blessings,
