3 No one will be condemned for not believing in Jesus Christ if he has never heard of Him For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law. (for not the hearers of the law [are] just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified; for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves [their] thoughts accusing or else excusing [them)] in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.

8 3. Why do the Innocent suffer? When God created the universe, it was perfect - The natural pattern of the universe is that our actions do not only affect us but always involve other people. Adam & Eve were given the freedom to obey Adam & Eve disobeyed Evil came into the universe - Because people disobeyed and broke God’s law, evil broadly pervades the universe. - God gave His life to solve the problem of evil.

10 4. How can miracles be possible? If God exists, then miracles are logical God is All-Powerful Walking on the water The 2 fish & the five loaves of bread Israel children went through the Red Sea

11 4. How can miracles be possible? If God exists, then miracles are logical Raising Lazarus from the dead, healing the lepers, creating eyes for the man born blind, …… All these are far beyond the natural law

12 5. Isn’t the Bible full of Errors? If you were asked this question, Don’t Panic Don’t make fun of anyone DIG for the answer DIG for the answer Don’t try to argue by mockery

13 6. Isn’t Christian Experience only Psychological? - Christians have been converted from every imaginable background. Thousands of them had no childhood contact with Christianity, yet all will testify that a personal encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ transformed their lives. - Our Lord Jesus Christ is the only constant factor in comparing the lives of Christians. From an immoral person to a pure one From a thief to an honest person From a liar to a trustful person From a hate- ridden heart to a loving one

14 7. Won’t a good, moral life get me to Heaven? 7. Won’t a good, moral life get me to Heaven? This is Humanity’s righteousness?? God’s infinite Holiness?? Our Lord Jesus Christ is the absolute standard His Perfect Righteousness is the ONLY basis on which we can come into fellowship with the Living God

15 7. Won’t a good, moral life get me to Heaven? 7. Won’t a good, moral life get me to Heaven? This is An incredible optimism about humanity’s righteousness An inexcusable ignorance of God’s infinite Holiness We lack the power to live as we ought, Our Lord Jesus Christ who invaded human history does for us what we couldn’t possibly do for ourselves Through Christ, we may be reconciled to God, given righteousness, and enabled to have fellowship with Him in His very presence.

16 The problem is not that people can not believe, but it is that they won’t believe as it will make too radical a change in their way of life The Basic Problem is Moral People must be willing to believe before they ever will believe We ourselves must be convinced about the truth we proclaim or else we will not be convincing at all to other people For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. (2Peter 1 : 16)
