While these two books address themselves to all Christians, their confessional viewpoints are not difficult to determine. All unattributed images on this site are either mine or known to be in the public domain. I will be re-posting an article by a very wonderful minister, Rev. When Christians do this, they are fulfilling the Apostle Peter's admonition to "be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you" (1 Pet. 3:15).

They want to know, not whether they can be acquitted for sin, but whether He can be acquitted for creating such a world. Lewis and Anglican evangelicalism, van den Toren invokes Karl Barth and the Dutch Reformed tradition. So let us briefly look at the evidence for the reliability of the Old Testament. If he had appeared to his apostles without the physical body they knew - how should they have known it was him and not some apparition, ghost (Luke 24:37), or imagination? The pre-conceptions in the area of self-righteousness, meanness, and judgementaslism are best dealt with in the context of our relationship with the listener.

Ancient and medieval Christian apologists thought of the world and God and human reason in very different ways than we do. As one popular commentator aptly states, as parents, we can insulate kids, but we cannot isolate them. The country has freedom of religion with Christianity being a minority religion. This is his classic book that dives deep into the evidence for God. Christianity was being spread using propaganda while engaging in war against the Muslim religion.

First they will preach their own determination of who Jesus Christ is, denying his Biblically revealed identity as God the Son and exchanging it with another. Shouldn't we stop for the sake of the weaker brother? In my opinion, these are some of the best apologetics works that Christian and seekers need to read. Paul found common ground by noting that they were “very religious,” given their many “objects of worship” (Acts 17:22-23) Paul knew this was idolatry, but he used a neutral description in order to build a bridge instead of erecting a wall We too should be distressed by the emblems of unbelief in our midst, yet we should try to discern and capitalize on points of contact with these other worldviews Paul then reports that he had found an altar to “an unknown God” (Acts 17:23) But what they took to be unknown, Paul now declares to them His declaration (Acts 17:24-31) is a masterpiece of Christian persuasion, the beauty of which cannot be captured in a short space 27 Knowing the perspective of the philosophers he was facing, Paul begins not with the message of Jesus but the biblical doctrine of creation—a belief alien to both Stoics and Epicureans (and to all Greek thought) Paul affirms that a personal and transcendent God created the entire universe, which depends on him for its continued existence “He himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else” (Acts 17:24-25; see also Hebrews 1:3) This sets up a sharp antithesis between Christianity and both philosophical camps The Stoics believed in an impersonal “world soul”—something like today’s New Age spiritual principle or “the Force” in the Star Wars movies—while the Epicureans believed in several deities who had no interest in humanity This Creator, Paul declares, is also closely involved with humanity He created all people from one man and established the conditions in which they live He did this so that people “would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us” (Acts 17:27) Against the Athenian philosophies, Paul presents a God who is personal, transcendent, immanent and relational He conveys all this before uttering a word about Christ Paul should be our apologetic model here as well Unless we establish a biblical view of God, people will likely See D A Carson, “Athens Revisited,” in Telling the Truth, ed D A Carson (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2000) place Jesus in the wrong worldview, taking him to be merely a guru or swami or prophet rather than Lord, God and Savior (Philippians 3:20; Colossians 2:9) Finding common ground.

They testify to the accuracy of the account they give (do not rely on here-say). If we discern that the hearer does not want to discuss the issues honestly, we may do better by declining further discussion, and returning to a demonstration of love in our dealings with him/her. Therefore man is not... material; he is spiritual.” (S&H 468) “Christian Science founder, Mary Baker Eddy was born in Bow, New Hampshire, in 1821. If God could extend love to someone like Saul the Pharisee, then no one need fear that their sin could keep them from the salvation message Paul proclaimed.

As Friedrich Nietzsche wrote in his parable called “The Madman” in The Gay Science, when we stop believing in God, our entire view of ourselves and the universe changes radically. It is not obvious in all cases which essays are unique to this work and which are taken from previous publications. NOAH’S FLOOD—Doesn’t the story of Noah’s flood contradict scientific knowledge and common sense? In reality, it is God Who does have an apologetic, while man does not.

Wallace In the Baker Encyclopedia of Christian Apologetics, by Norm Geisler (Grand Rapids: Baker, 1998; p. 532), there is a comment about the number of textual variants among New Testament manuscripts: Some have estimated there are about 200,000 of them. Apologetics is a term used to refer to the energetic attempt to explain one's position to others. An apology on somewhat similar lines is that of the Huguenot, Philip deMornay, "De la vérité de la religion chrétienne" (1579).
