How Should I Share My Faith With My Atheist Friends?

Core Christianity Episode 1

From the Show

What the world needs to see is not us at our best but what happens when we are at our worst. For people to see us kneeling, asking God for forgiveness, asking those we have wronged (including our own spouses) for forgiveness, in front of our children—as you say Adriel that itself is a gift to them. This says, "yes we are sinners, but we don’t just hide our sin or think that it’s okay." We bring it to the cross. We are forgiven, and now we ask for the Holy Spirit to strengthen us to go on. —Michael Horton
