But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Question 54: Does Philosophy bury God?

Written by

image

If philosophy indeed buried God, then Christians are basically most to be pitied (1 Corinthians 15:13-19). However, Jesus Christ died a real death on a real cross for real sin (Isaiah 53:5-6; 1 Timothy 1:15; Luke 23:33-24:12; John 1:29; Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23; Luke 19:10). He also rose again and...
