People do not like to feel stupid. If you go out and share your faith with non-believers and they ask you how you can trust the Bible or who was Cain’s wife or tell you that the Bible condones slavery, polygamy, genocide, etc., how many more times do you think you’re going to open your mouth about Jesus? For most people, probably not very often. If, on the other hand, you have the proper training to handle and respond to these questions “with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15b),  you will have effectively removed this hurdle so that you can more freely share your faith and talk to people about the Gospel. This by no means diminishes or devalues the role of the Holy Spirit, but merely presents yourself and your training as yet another means by which the Holy Spirit can draw people to Himself. —Daniel Carrington (from the article, Should Christians Use Evidence and Logic to Proclaim the Gospel?)
