Tough questions and how to answer them

Our responsibility

(1 Pet 3:15 NIV)  Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,

Remember that you are not out there to win an argument. Your aim is to win the soul. If you sense that your arguments are pushing him away, then back off. There will be another chance to witness to him.

Get to the root issue

The best way to conquer an objection is to ask why. Do not try to second-guess his reasons for not wanting to accept the gospel.
