It is an entirely reasonable question to ask someone, “Why do you believe what you believe?”  That is also an entirely reasonable question to ask yourself.  For the Christian, I believe that 1 Peter 3:15 means that our answer should not simply be, “just cause I do.”  Or, “cause my parents did.”  If someone asks you why you have hope, don’t give them just a blank stare.  For the occasional person who is truly seeking and wondering if there is anything to this faith beyond some nice metaphors and a social club, we owe it to them to have a better answer.  When the difficulties of life would bring us doubts, we owe it to ourselves to really examine things, instead of ignoring the difficult questions by drowning them out with chatter and noise. – Daniel Richardson (Why Apologetics?)
