LET'S CONTINUE TO AFFECT LIVES!

LET'S CONTINUE TO AFFECT LIVES!
Over the last nine years of ministry, I've seen so many people's lives affected by the redemptive truth of Jesus Christ as presented through apologetic material. The first life I saw impacted was my own. As I set out to answer doubts about my own belief in God, I never meant to start up a ministry. I just wanted to get those answers. Yet, I realized that other people must also have questions and doubts, and like me, they may not know where to even begin looking. So I began to teach apologetics in the local church. I also began a blog defending the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus. Out of these two small endeavors, a ministry arose and flourished.

Now, Confident Christianity continues to expand our ministry effectively reaching a rapidly changing culture.  My current studies are aimed at equipping everyday Christians with tools to simply talk with anyone about anything in this changing environment. Talking with others about our beliefs should and can be natural.

NEW BIBLE STUDY by Mary Jo Sharp!

September 2015!


I am so excited to announce my second Bible Study with LifeWay!  If you enjoyed "Why Do You Believe That?" then I think you'll find this study as rewarding.

"Living In Truth" is set to release September 2015.  I'll keep you posted once it is officially available for pre-order.  Make plans on your calendar to set aside 6-7 weeks for this new study.

What's the study about?

False ideas within the body of Christ and the influence of culture crack our foundation of faith.  Many women need to go back to the basis of their beliefs, and strengthen confidence in their beliefs and in God.  The goal of this study is to help every Christian effectively converse on truth by following basic steps: 1) See the need for conversations, 2) Know what you believe, 3) Listen to discover truth, 4) Question cultural views & individual beliefs, 5) Respond to cultural views and 6) Engage in a lifestyle of total truth.

A New Rebellion: True Tolerance

 
“For the power of Man to make himself what he pleases means, as we have seen, the power of some men to make other men what they please.” – C.S. Lewis

Years ago, in The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis cautioned that as a society lets go of an objective basis for morality, a society ends up conditioned to believe the values and preferences of a few men. He called these men, “The Conditioners.” They are those men with power, a voice, and the platform to spread their message. While his warning sounds like the introduction of a fictitious dystopian novel, it appears that our society has reached the dawn of dystopia.
