Christians should affirm, “Christ is our life” (Colossians 3:4), and they should happily and humbly hold forth this “life,” as the life that all people ought to live. Making such a claim, though, it is perfectly natural and reasonable for people to ask, “Why?”
Inspiration says that Christians are to be “ready always to give answer to every man that asketh [them] a reason concerning the hope that is in [them]” (1 Peter 3:15). “Give answer” is from a Greek word, apologia, which is even spelled straight into English; and it is the idea of a formal explanation or defense of one’s beliefs or actions. Peter not only says that Christians are to give an answer, apologia, but they are to do it with “with meekness and fear,” or with kindness and reverence.
The Main Street church of Christ wants to offer a digital avenue for any to discreetly ask us, “Why?” We commit to answering questions promptly, and with the Bible, reason, and respect.
