Today, we'd like to call attention to a recent article published by the Student Support Program (SSP). It's titled "Unapologetic Belief" and written by the Gospel Blog's very own Brother Jordan Champine.
Here's an excerpt from the article:
Timber! If a tree falls and no one is around to hear it, does it still make a sound?
We've all heard sayings like this before; philosophical mind benders that make us question what is "truth." As students in high school and college on our way to becoming self-sufficient adults, the definition of "truth" may not be as clear cut as it used to be.
A lot of people see belief in God as a crutch for weak or lazy people. However, everybody puts faith in something — even atheists. Belief in God is not lazy or ignorant. Rather, belief in God is a powerful place of courage and action where we learn first-hand that Jesus is alive.
For those of you who don't know, the SSP is a network of high school and college-age youth from The Church of Jesus Christ established to grow stronger together in Christ.
