By Scott M. Sullivan, PhD

"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" - 1 Peter 3:15

There is no doubt about it; Jesus is just as much of a controversial figure today as He was in ancient times. Go out and mention His name publicly and you will very likely draw expressions of both love and outright hatred.

As Christians, we have a duty to share the Gospel with unbelievers, and in doing this, you will very likely run into what we might call a “Jesus Critic,” that is, someone who offers objections to Christianity.

These objections will be reasons or arguments attempting to persuade us that Christianity is false. Such arguments will come in various forms, but the one thing they all have in common is that they reflect a skeptical attitude towards what the New Testament says Jesus taught.

The purpose of this booklet is to expose some of these arguments. Indeed, here we will look at ten of the worst, or weakest, arguments people use to dismiss Christianity. Unfortunately, not only are these the ten worst arguments against Christianity, but they are also the most common arguments made against Christianity. This is the big problem today: the most common reasons for rejecting Christ are also the WORST reasons for rejecting Christ.

To read this excellent compilation of objections by "Jesus Critics", either click on the image of the book at the top of this article or click on the following website link:

April 14th – 16th, 2016

The 2016 Ladies Retreat was held over a 3 day period at the Lake Tomahawk Baptist Encampment in East Texas on April 14th thru the 16th and was a complete success. Approximately 25 ladies attended the event and based on comments, photos and videos everyone had a blessed and faith-filled time.

Second Baptist Church La Porte is located at the corner of Canada Road and Carlow Lane in La Porte.  Second Baptist was founded over fifty-six years ago by a group of Christians who had a burning desire to see God's Gospel carried forward.  And the dreams of the Church's founders have come true, for through the years, lost people have found salvation, the hungry have been fed, broken hearts have been mended, and hurting lives have found solace within the comforting arms of this sacred Temple of Our Lord. 


It remains the same today.  Second Baptist is a Loving Church, a Caring Church, a Church where all are welcome, and all are equal.  Souls are still being saved and lives are still being changed.   Come visit our growing, active Church where you will find a Church filled with gracious, friendly, caring people.  We offer a full service Sunday School and Church programs to meet your family's needs.


God's Word is always preached and taught from the Bible.  We extend a personal invitation to visit and worship God with us. We believe that your spiritual needs will be met here at Second Baptist Church.  If we can be of any help to you or your family, please contact us..  e-mail address: sporte@sbcglobal.net.
