Pastor Marc starts a new series responding to a video by popular atheist YouTuber, Pinecreek, titled “How to Cause Trouble in Church” which attempts to cast doubts on the trustworthiness of the Bible. This series shows why the claims made in the video are really no trouble at all.

This first session takes a look at the intro to the video, reasons why Christians believe, and the faults with the skeptical approach to answering the question of whether a belief, particularly religious belief, is true or not.

The following sessions will look at the specific challenges leveled against the Scripture in the original video.
