About
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

The Moravian people should be recognized as unsung heroes of the Christian faith. These men and women were zealous in their love for Christ to the extent of going to unthinkable lengths to share the Gospel to a lost and dying world. Inconvenience, sickness, poverty, nor any other hardship could detract this people from the missionary call.

Numerous recent studies show that it is increasingly popular to believe that “going to church” is not important or necessary to be a Christian. Just as long as a Christian has a genuine faith in Christ, this is all that is required. But is this true?

When we open our Bibles to the New Testament Pastoral Epistles, we find something quite different from—even opposed to—typical cultural or personal definitions of “truth” as merely “relative”: not uncommonly professed in mainstream/public academic institutions.

In the Gospels, Jesus called his disciples to live for him, to die to themselves, and to be radically different than the world around them. This can be seen in places like Mark 8:34 where Jesus says, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me” (ESV). This same statement is also recorded in Matthew 16:24 and Luke 9:23. Two verses after this, Jesus challenges the crowds and his disciples with a question by asking, “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?” (Mark 8:36, ESV).

In Psalm 27:4-5, the King of Israel makes the most fundamental request any human being is able to make when he says, “I ask to live in your presence every day of my life.” Some might ask why this is so foundational to our lives as Christ followers.

Many believe that Apologetics is a waste of time because no one has ever made a decision to follow Christ because of apologetics. As one who teaches worldview and apologetics, I do agree that not many have been converted through apologetics, I would also argue that apologetics is not the foundation for which one is won over to Christ, only the Gospel can change the human heart and transform the being into what Christ demands. So why do Christian Apologetics?

I recently watched one of my sons play a game at their field day called Builders and Destroyers. Some kids would be builders and have to go around and stand up as many cones as possible.  The other kids were destroyers and they would go around knocking as many cones down as possible. This was very funny to watch as it was much easier for the kids to go around and be destroyers.

Even if there were more builders than destroyers I noticed that there were always more cones destroyed than there were those that the builders were able to stand up. I noticed that it was much harder to build or stand a cone up once someone had destroyed it.  How easy it seemed to destroy and how hard it seemed to build. This got me to thinking about whether or not I am a builder or a destroyer when it comes to life?  Do I build others up or do I destroy them with my words and actions? Is it easier for me to destroy others rather than build them up?

It’s a new year, and many people are focused on becoming more productive. They want to get better grades, lose more weight, make more money, etc. When it comes to living as a disciple of Jesus, the idea of “productivity” has a place. An important part of being fruitful disciples is making more disciples. This is the Great Commission Christ gave His followers in Matthew 28:18-20.
