Online Showdown

A few years ago, I was in an extended online argument with an arrogant atheist. (Of course, I’m confident his perspective was that he was in an extended argument with an arrogant Christian!)

Ultimately, he put out a challenge: reenact 1 Kings 18 with two piles of sticks. The twist was that he would assume the role of science (lighters and a match) while I would serve on behalf of Jesus through prayer alone.

I said yes to the challenge, and my opponent abruptly left that message board.

We are called to suffer for Christ, even today, as we are laughed at for our faith. But as Paul makes clear in verses 28-30, our continuing courage will be a powerful witness.

Dear Reader, how can you stand up for Christ today?
