Overview

In the Western world every year we hear more and more people say something like, “I don’t believe in God. I don’t have religious beliefs. I don’t have a religious preference.” This is a growing sentiment in our world today. So what is the future of Christian belief in a world in which fewer and fewer believe?

We’re going to answer this question by going to Acts 17 where Paul gives a sermon to Athens, which was the intellectual center of the Roman world. It was famous as being a place where the philosophers didn’t believe in the gods anymore. It was very skeptical and it was not unlike some parts of our skeptical society today. We’re going to learn three things: first, everyone is deeply religious; secondly, your beliefs must have a God-sized God big enough for your moral intuitions; and thirdly, your beliefs must have a heart-shaped hope that can fulfill your deepest desires.
