For some, they could have grown up in a Christian household and took upon their parent’s beliefs; others may have not been looking for their faith in God, but rather stumbled upon it unknowingly.

    “A hypocrite is a person who - but who isn't?” (Don Marquis). Christians are called to follow the word of God not only through their word, but also through their actions. Their “yes’” should be “yes’” and their “no’s” should be “no’s”. Christians have been indoctrinated to suppose they are the chosen people of Christ, which leads them into believing they will be saved without the effort it takes to be a true follower. In the Christian faith, hypocrisy occurs in the media, stewardship of the…

    believe Christians often operate under two misconceptions concerning evangelism and apologetics. First, they mistakenly believe apologetics and evangelism is a discipline only carried out by trained professional like pastors, seminary grads, or those who have studied in some apologetic program.

Today, however, Christian pacifism…
