Dear Youth, Parents, and Leaders,


Here are some resources to help reflect upon Sunday night's Youth Group meeting:


Take a Minute and answer these questions privately.
  • How often do you defend your faith?
  • 1x per day
  • 1x per week
  • 1x per month
  • I’ve never had to defend my faith
To whom have you had to give an answer to what you believe?  In other words, with whom have you had to defend your faith?
  • My parents
  • My siblings
  • My peers
  • My coaches/teachers
  • Strangers
Answer these questions privately on a scale of 1 to 10 (1—lowest; 10—highest)
  • How much does what you believe about mathematics matter to you?
  • How much does what you believe about global warming matter to you?
  • How much does what you believe about God’s existence matter to you?
  • How much does what you believe about church matter to you?
  • How much does what you believe about the Bible matter to you?
  • How much does what you believe about the Jesus’ resurrection matter to you?
If what we believe matters, how often are you in the Word of God?
  • Every Day
  • 2-3x per week
  • 1x per week
  • 1x per month
  • Only for homework
If what we believe matters, then we should know what we believe. Please share, “What is the gospel according to Jesus?”

If what we believe about God’s existence matters, please share any proofs that God exist:

If what we believe about the resurrection matters, please share any evidence that Jesus actually rose from the dead:
  • Explain what idea is contained in the word defend or contend? How does that relate to your faith?
  • What is the difference between blind faith and reasonable faith?
  • How do you think most people pick their religion? How did you?
  • Why must defending your faith or contending for the faith be done with certain attitude qualities?
  • What role should relationships play in defending our faith?
  • People often say that Christianity is exclusive, divisive, and intolerant because of their truth claims. How would you respond?
  • Some people believe: All religious views should be kept private. How would you respond?
