Everyone has doubts. So the question isn’t really, “Can Christians have doubts?” but rather, “What should we do when doubts come?”
Many young Albanians lack hope. Their country is reeling from the effects of communism, jobs are scarce, and their prospects for a prosperous future, even with a college education, are slim. But there is always hope in the Gospel.
When most people think of evangelism, they think of leading a person to Christ, but there is more to evangelism than this. Before there can be a harvest, there is always a season of gardening. Know the season and know your role.
How do you create confidence in Christians who are able to share their pro-life convictions with anyone? Here’s a hint: It takes a lot more than a lecture, but it’s worth it. That’s what I did this summer with 45 high school students on the pro-life mission.
After the tragic mass shooting in Orlando, many clues pointed to a familiar explanation: Islamic terrorism. The killer was a Muslim, born in a Muslim family, and pledged his allegiance to Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS. Almost reflexively, though, analysts gave the usual talking points about how Islam is a religion of peace and its practitioners are peaceful people. What the Orlando killer did, many Muslims and pundits said, had nothing to do with Islam. True Muslims oppose the Orlando killer’s behavior.

“How do I share Christ with someone who is an agnostic?” a college student asked after a talk I gave last month at a church in Oklahoma. Then she added, “My boyfriend is agnostic, but I feel like God has called me into this relationship.” Uh-oh. It’s decision time. I just met this girl a few minutes ago, yet she is my sister in Christ. Do I simply answer her first question about evangelism and ignore her later statement about being “called” to date a non-Christian?
Over the last decade as a Stand to Reason speaker, I’ve been yelled at, cursed at, and even threatened. Somehow, though, I haven’t yelled back, cursed back, or threatened anyone. In fact, I respond to such attacks in a rather calm way. How do I keep my cool? Here’s my secret: I let God take the heat.
Melinda: Welcome to the STRask Podcast. That's #strask. This is the short podcast – I keep Greg on a timer – about ethics, value, and religion. This is Melinda the Enforcer with Greg Koukl. Hi, Greg. Greg: Hi. You seem like you're in a cheerful mood today. Melinda: I guess so. Greg: A bit out of the ordinary.
I can’t tell you how much it means to us at STR to help raise up a new generation of confident, clear-thinking, courageous, gracious ambassadors for Christ. As I reflect during this time of year, I think about all that’s happened in my personal life and in the life of Stand to Reason. I’m thrilled to watch my daughters grow spiritually. I’m thrilled to see STR continue to have an amazing impact—especially among youth—changing lives in a way that you have had a hand in.
