Implications: Real Answers to Real Questions

ImplicationsGraphicCan a Christian defend himself and his family with lethal force? Must we always tell the truth? Can you work for a company with a sinful social agenda? Can Christians use the courts to settle disputes? Is infertility treatment moral? Should my wife give up her career to raise our children? How do we balance personal responsibility with trusting God?

Life is full of tough questions. Christian men want to make wise choices, but sometimes the right choice does not seem clear. If the Bible is true, relevant and authoritative, it should help answer the difficult questions. We believe it does! Join us Monday nights as we answer real questions from real men about real issues, using the truth of God’s Word as our guide. If men are asking it, we are answering it. Join us!
