When Apologetics Get in the Way of the Gospel

In some circles, it’s been said that theological arguments are more beneficial for the Christians than the people we’re trying to reach with the gospel.

Why I Don't Evangelise

As I think back on my own conversion, it had nothing to do with attending a special church service or seeing Christian posts on social media. Rather, it was the very real flaws of Bible characters and Christians around me that convicted me of the reality of the gospel.

Why Should We Defend the Faith?

Whether we grew up in a Christian home or came to accept the beliefs of the Christian faith later in life, at some point we’ve probably wondered whether what we’ve been taught is indeed true.

ASK YMI: How Can I Be Happy in Heaven If My Loved Ones Aren't There?

How can we be happy knowing that our loved ones are suffering? We struggle with guilt and ask ourselves: Have I not been earnest enough in sharing the gospel with them? Is it because I haven’t been praying for them consistently? Could I have been a better testimony at home?

ASK YMI: Should Christians Rethink the Way We Engage the LGBTQI Community?

A few years ago, I received a phone call from a reporter who was writing a piece for the Atlantic magazine. He wanted to interview me about the Christian view of gay marriage. The reporter was well informed about Christian theology, and probably expected a certain kind of response from me.  Christians often come across as judgmental on such issues, so I wanted to be clear about the most important truth right upfront.

So to be wilfully ignorant of this planet’s plight, or to continue to wreck it for the sake of greed then, is to foolishly vandalize the means which God has given to sustain life, which makes us a poor steward of the temporal resources that have been entrusted to us.

Isn't It Arrogant to Claim that Christianity Is the Only Way to God?

I have often found myself struggling with the pressure from church and Christian friends to “make” people Christians. I don’t actually find it that easy to share my beliefs with non-Christians.

If you’ve felt the same way that I do, here are some pointers that may help.

ASK YMI: How Do We Live in the Tension Between Rules and Grace?

What’s the difference between comfort and casual? Imagine you had the chance to meet one of your heroes—maybe your favorite actor, or an author you’ve read, or a musician you love. And instead of being an aloof celebrity-type who’s hard to talk to, this hero of yours is actually friendly, warm, and approachable. He goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable.
