Fear and Faith

Going to college? Going to work? Going anywhere your faith will be challenged?

Read this. Titled "Freshman Fears," it's an article by Ted Slater at Boundless Line. In it, Slater responds to a college freshman afraid of "letting Jesus down" as he interacts with atheistic classmates. The article's advice will encourage any Christian who wants to nurture his or her faith in a difficult environment, and then share it with a hostile, unbelieving world.

One of my favorite quotes:
Clever arguments may be of some worth but being prepared to speak words of life is of eternal worth. . .The Lord converts people, draws them to Himself by His merciful kindness; we ultimately don't draw anyone through our clever words.
