Should I Be Concerned About My Child Studying World Religions in College? with special guest Michael Horton

Episode 525 Show Notes 

From the Show

As C. S. Lewis said, “In Christianity, you have the myth that became fact.”

When I was growing up, you had conversations with Roman Catholics, Baptists, Pentecostals, Methodists, and Lutherans. Now it’s with Buddhists, and Hindus, and Sikhs, and Muslims. The worst thing in the world for us as Christians is just to start off with our message, showing no interest in what other people believe, what makes them tick at the deepest level of their life.

—Michael Horton

Questions in this Episode

1. I have a friend who has questions about the Christian faith, and I don’t always feel like I have good answers. I get a lot from your show but don’t always know how to relay that to my friend. Do you have any advice on how to become better at sharing my faith?

2. My son is taking a Religious Studies class in College. Is it ok for Christians to study other world religions, or is that something I should warn him against? I’ve really done my best to help him be grounded in the Word of God but I’m nervous that his Professors might lead him astray.

3. I believe I am a sinner, but what if I don’t feel its wretchedness? Or the feelings of joy and happiness overflowing because of the forgiveness in Jesus Christ, like what I hear described in hymns?
