Christian Apologetics.

Discussing the truth

 

Christian apologetics is not about apologizing to people, but it is about:

  •   Removing intellectual obstacles that hinder people from embracing Christ as LORD.
  •   Moreover it is about fortifying Christians in their faith.

Christian apologetics is about educating Christians from the word of God, in the defense of their faith according to 1 Peter 3:15. This is critical today, given the growths of Atheism, Agnosticism, Postmodernism, Islam and the new spirituality movement in North America and around the World.

Unfortunately, most Christians today are poorly equipped to refute the growing pressure of anti-Christian arguments. Christians need answers to this main question:”Can you prove it?”.  They are also asked by un-churched people and sometimes by they own self: “do you really believe this?”.

From statistics reported by Ratio Christi International, 75% of incoming Christian freshman walk away from their faith by the time they leave college.

Apologetics has an important role in evangelism. Apologetics and evangelism were combined in the live of Apostle Paul, Justin Martyr, and in our days we see them in Francis Schaeffer, Ravi Zacharias and many more apologists prepared by the Holy Spirit for the Church.
