“In your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.” (1 Peter 3:15).
Part of the Christian’s responsibility is to give a defense of the gospel to anyone who asks. This is the task of evangelism–proclaiming the good news of the hope we have in Christ–and the task of Christian apologetics–making a defense of the faith in a world of competing worldviews.
The challenge for most hurried Christians is finding ways to keep up to date on current events that threaten Christianity. Likewise, finding biblical answers to the problems posed by these attacks can be daunting. How should we cultivate our Christian worldview in a world that aims to erode our faith and that denies Truth?
Enter Albert Mohler. Dr. Mohler is the president of Southern Seminary who has spent more than 20 years defending the faith in public forums. Recently, his nationally syndicated radio program came to an end, but in its place he has begun producing a daily podcast that looks to be incredibly helpful for thinking Christians and those involved in Christianity ministry. It is called The Briefing, and it is a 10 minute program devoted to helping Christians think biblically about current events.
In the last week, I have benefitted immensely from its contents. I encourage you to check it out. Subscribe to it on iTunes or just stop by Mohler’s website to find illuminating commentary on all the things you will find pressing against Christianity in the news.
