The logo has three parts to it. The first is the most obvious; it bears the numbers 3:15. This is representative of 1 Peter 3:15.
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. 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
This verse is foundational to my heart behind Discover the Answer because of the three commands it expresses to me as a Christian. #1 Revere Christ as Lord. #2 Always be prepared to give an answer to anyone who asks why you believe what you put your hope in. #3 Answer with gentleness and respect. Those are the three things that motivate my heart everyday.
The second part of the logo is it’s color: green. I picked green because, to me, it is the color that represents creation, and the more I investigate and study creation the more I am overwhelmed by the majesty and power of the creator.
I love what a friend of mine, Pastor Virgil Walker, said one time, “Your apologetic (defense for the Christian faith) should come from a reverence of God… It should cause you to worship God even deeper.” And over time this has grown to be so true. The more I explore and realize the truth about God, the Bible, and the complexity of what He has created, the more I am in utter awe and reverence of Him.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalm 19:1
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20
The final part of the new logo is the scroll in the background. The scroll represents the scriptures, or the Bible. In Jesus’s day the scriptures were written on scrolls (many of which we still have today). The scriptures are pictured in the logo because they are the ultimate authority over all the answers I give on the website (Acts 17:11).
The Bible is God’s written word to man (2 Thessalonians 2:13) and therefore it is authoritative to man, whom He created (Psalm 24:1). Not only is it the authority over what I write, but it is the authority over every part of my life, including how I think, how I interpret the world, what I desire, my purpose in life, what I believe, how I act (although I oftentimes fall short), what I do, etc.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
I truly feel that this logo captures the full scope of my heart behind Discover the Answer, and I hope that when you see it it is a reminder of the answers that can be found in God’s Word, no matter the question.
