Understanding the Times and the Alien Philosophies Opposed to God’s Truth
Become the antidote by knowing God’s truth and being the truth in your home, neighborhood, and culture.
By Dr. Peter Jones – I wrote this text on February 25, 2021, a day when stunning events occurred in the USA that are massive “legal” attacks on the opening line of the Bible: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he … Read More
By Craig Branch – Many times I have watched a steady parade of Word-Faith showmen on Trinity Broadcast Network (TBN) and cringed as I saw them manipulate both Scripture and the audience. Seldom is this manipulation more obvious than when they turn to the topic of health and healing. Many of the leaders of the … Read More
By Clete Hux – The Atonement and Word Faith Theology The obvious abuses of the Word-Faith movement concerning the “health” and “wealth” gospel are readily acknowledged by most evangelical Christians. However, the most serious errors of the movement involve the “faith” teachings on the atonement of Christ. Many Word-Faith teachers claim that redeemed man has … Read More
Rev. Clete Hux and Joe Godfrey, Director of ALCAP, discuss Yoga being taught in Alabama Public Schools. The Alabama Administrative Code (AAC), Rule 290-040-040-2 that bans the practice of yoga and meditation in its public school system has been in place for over twenty-seven years. A new bill, HB246, is making its way through the … Read More
Dr. Peter Jones – How does one make sense of the elections? Where is our culture going? What will the future hold? A colleague of mine wrote: “What we need to hear is admission of wrong and repentance.” Posting this appeal for repentance and admission of wrong from fellow believers doubtless implies that all those … Read More
By Paul A. Cleveland – The political divide in our country seems to grow bigger each and every day. For many of us we wonder if our country will ever return to some sense of normalcy. Indeed, as Christians we feel that the leftist are mounting what appears a growing attack on the faith. Why … Read More
What is Apologetics?
Apologetics is a word derived from the Greek word apologia, which means to give a reasoned defense (1 Pet. 3:15). In its Biblical context, apologetics is a branch of Christian theology and philosophy through which the Christian mind expresses itself in the task of evangelism.
The vindication of Christian truth claims and philosophy of life against the various forms of non-Christian philosophies of life. It is the responsibility of every Christian to be equipped in some knowledge and use of apologetics.
The work of apologetics should include the following three dimensions: (a) Apologetics as proof – presenting a rational basis for faith that confronts unbelief in the believer as well as in the unbeliever; (b) Apologetics as defense – answering the objections and overcoming the barriers of unbelief; (c) Apologetics as offense – demonstrating or revealing the foolishness of unbelieving thought and world-views in conflict with the Christian faith.
Seek the Truth
Apologetics seeks to provide rational grounds for believing the truth claims of Christianity in whole or in part and to respond to objections raised against the true knowledge of God in whole or in part in the Christian faith (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).
We Have a Passion for Christ
Apologetics should stress that God is interested in the character of the Christian and in the manner in which truth is communicated. The Christian must speak the truth in love, not being quarrelsome, able to teach, correcting the error with gentleness, kindness, patience, and humility. (2 Timothy 2:24-26)
