We will at times be called on not just to defend our belief in God, but to defend our core beliefs. There are many groups who use the bible and claim to stand by its teachings, but will distort or deny the orthodox Christian beliefs of Monotheism (belief in only one God), the deity of Christ, the trinity, salvation by Faith alone and so on. In speaking to such people we may find we are using the same words but meaning very different things- it is vital, in connecting with such people and sharing our beliefs, that we can not only explain what we believe but can accurately and fully defend it. By doing so we can reach out to those who have been fooled into believing in a false Christ and a distorted gospel
