What is Apologetics?

Apologetics may be simply defined as the defense of the Christian faith. The word “apologetics” derives from the Greek word apologia, which was originally used as a speech of defense or an answer given in reply. In ancient Athens it referred to a defense made in the courtroom as part of the normal judicial procedure. After the accusation, the defendant was allowed to refute the charges with a defense or reply (apologia). The word appears 17 times in noun or verb form in the New Testament, and both the noun (apologia) and verb form (apologeomai) can be translated “defense” or “vindication” in every case.

The Real Issue Podcast: Understanding and Responding to the Anti-Intellectualism in the Church

If you were to be asked why you're a Christian, could you answer that question without giving your personal testimony? What about your belief in the Bible? Could you defend why it is God's word in an intelligent manner before skeptical inquisition?

What is anti-intellectualism and how did the church get here? What are the dangers and the pitfalls for both the individual believer and the church?

Join us for this week's episode of the Real Issue Podcast where we tackle these questions and more. This podcast springboards off of the blog posting from this ministry.  So get ready to examine your faith and stretch you mind as we talk about the reasons for God and why Christianity needs a robust forensic faith.
