On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (01/12/21), Hank features the newest edition of the Christian Research Journal in which he wrote about the mission of the magazine and vicariously the Christian Research Institute. In producing each and every issue of the Christian Research Journal, our focus is on two complementary realities. First, truth; second, life. Both realities codified by the mission emblazoned on each and every edition of our magazine: “Equipping You To Exercise Truth and Experience Life.” As is evident in a post-truth culture, truth matters. Truth really, really matters! We have been commissioned to “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (1 Pet. 3:15 NIV). Yet being intellectually equipped “to exercise truth” is hardly sufficient. The Father’s greatest gift to those who have been saved through His Son is the impartation of a new order of life, an order of life that is of the same quality as the life of Christ. If we relegate the Christian experience to a mere headful of knowledge we’re in danger of devolving into a transactional rather than transformational relationship with the Lover of our souls. Thus, the Christian Research Institute through its various outreaches is committed to “equipping you to exercise truth” and to “experience life.”
