Be Ready Always

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

(1 Peter 3:15) KJV

Is there any point trying to reason with people whose worldview depends on the denial of cause? And, if they can’t comprehend cause and effect does that mean that they have a reprobate mind?

Is there any point in trying to reach these people? The fact is we don’t know who they are. However, we’re charged with being always ready to give anyone who asks us the reason for why we have hope. We have hope because we have faith in Jesus Christ. We have the hope of eternal life.

We’ve also been charged to guard our consciences. Doing things that you will later regret is going to grieve your conscience. Guard your conscience.

The “reprobate mind,” in Romans 1:28 is a consequence of rejecting the relationship between cause and effect. It manifests as a refusal to acknowledge the relationship between behavior and consequences.
