How to Answer the Fool

Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes.  (Proverbs 26:5)

I had the pleasure of listening to an interview of Sye Ten Bruggencate by Chris Rosebrough of Fighting for the Faith concerning the former's new film How to Answer the Fool.

Every believer is called to "make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you" (1 Pet 3:15).  God is knowable and has made himself known in the scriptures, but most well-intended Christians inadvertently undermine themselves by appealing to evidence or experience as their basis.  While neither of these is incorrect when used properly, one should begin with the truth of the God who revealed himself in his word and not try to prove him through the material world or what happened to you in your faith journey.

I have edited out the bump music from the program.  The interview is 65 minutes and worth the time whether or not you purchase the film.
