"Be Ready with an Answer"

Although I was born into a Christian home, the doctrine of Christianity was always a foreign language for me.  However, as I grew older and more mature, I merely learned how to assimilate into the Christian culture - knowing Jesus and his sacrifice, the Trinity, et cetera et cetera.  

Even coming into my junior year in high school I became active in leading praise at church, praise nights, and even being asked to play for other events at different churches as well too.  

I lead volunteer activities in the community with the church youth, taught the basic Bible stories of Noah and Moses to the children. I even began to lead Bible Studies for the high school and college ministries as well (which was more of me just facilitating the question, "what do you think about this passage?  And what do you think?  And what do you think?  Ok, let's close in prayer").

I was loved by everyone in my church, and I thought that I had this "Christian" lifestyle down.  That is until I was approached by an atheist and he challenged me with my scriptures.

He brought up this fallacy and this contradiction, and time and time again I was appalled and ashamed at my lack of knowledge in how to defend what I now know as the foundation of my faith.  

It was at this point in my life where I realized I needed to put all of my leadership positions on hold and really seek after understanding more of the Bible.

I was more convicted when I flipped to a verse that same day I was approached by an atheist that as a believer I need to be ready with an answer for anyone who has a question towards why I believe.

After weeks and weeks of prayer, God helped me find guidance by directing my footsteps to a friend I hadn't seen in many years.
