Sunday Morning
Bible Study

You’ve heard the objections. These and many more!

• There are many paths to God.
• What kind of God demands worship?
• There are hypocrites in the church.
• Religion is a crutch for the weak.
• Where is God when I’m hurting?
• I want to feel good about myself.
• All the church cares about is money.
• Can a loving God send people to hell?
• Christianity is so anti-woman.
• I can’t handle your outdated view of sex.
• How do I know I’m a Christian?
• I’ll be rejected by family and friends.

You’ve heard the objections, but you don’t feel prepared to answer them. What if, instead of racking our brains for just the right passages, we would begin instead with the right story? A story that sets the living Jesus before their eyes?

We might come away concluding, “All I really needed to know I learned in Sunday School.” This approach, called Bible Story Evangelism, might be just what we need, not just to set Jesus before those outside the church but also before those who are in danger of drifting away.

Can you tell the story of Peter’s denial? of the Emmaus disciples? of the weeds and the wheat? of Judas’ betrayal? of the woman at the well? of the woman who anointed Jesus with the expensive perfume? Then you’ve already got a vivid way to respond to six of the objections above. Even if you can match them up yourself, we encourage you to join us on Sunday mornings. We’ll be looking at stories of Jesus and asking ourselves, “Who needs to hear this?”
