"But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." - Peter, The Apostle
Peter calls Christians to "give an answer" for the hope we have. My purpose in life is to embrace the life of Jesus Christ and I share here what my beliefs are founded on. How strong or weak our belief foundation is, determines how we survive and thrive when faced with the beautiful and difficult realities along our journey of life.
I've organized the reasons below using the phrases general and personal (simply click tags to filter). Personal reasons are my own experiences that strengthened my faith and are shared to encourage you. The general reasons transcend my personal experiences and help you to anchor our beliefs in something greater and stronger than my anecdotal stories.
To help meet you where you are, I've also added two filters, "Why God?" & "Why Christianity?". Simply filter the reasons down to the ones most relevant to you.
