Pastor Peter in 1 Peter 3:15 exhorts us as believers in Christ to do and live out the following mission: “But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence”. When Peter uses the word “defense”, he chooses a word in the Greek that means “apologia”, which means to give a word back. This is where we get the word “Apologetics”- to defend the faith!
In a culture and society that is ever so shifting in her beliefs and philosophies, it is of the utmost importance that we as believers in Christ Jesus know how to give an answer back (apologetic) to those who might challenge your faith. Whether it be atheists, agnostics, Buddhist, Hindus, etc, we must give the truth to those who seek.
Below are some web links that will give you tools to research and to inform you as to how to answer back. As well, you can connect with me on my new Apologetics Facebook page called State Your Case. I pray you will find yourself deeper in God’s Word as well as a student of the Word. The Lord has called us to be Disciples, not dummies. Therefore, study to show yourself approved!
