Answering Objections to the Gospel

This is a short practical series on Apologetics that is aimed at helping pastors and Christians answer the many common objections that are made against the Gospel. Because of their bondage to sin and idolatry, the unbelieving mind is distorted and twisted into knots. Their faculty of reason is corrupted, which makes them, out of their rebellion against God, to search for arguments against the Gospel why not to repent of their sin and believe in Christ. There are hundreds of objections the unbelieving mind will hide behind to cloak their sin and idolatry as well as suppress the truth in unrighteousness; including Atheistic notions, their attachment to some form of false religion or political ideology that is contrary to the Word of God. This makes them irrational in their thinking and ungodly in their affections. And so in sharing the Gospel with unbelievers faithfully and graciously, it is wise to be prepared to answer their objections and to reason with them from Scripture why their thinking is wrong, and how Christ can save them from their sin and idolatry. 1 Peter 3:15 says, “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.”
