Reasons For Believing
We can no longer afford to just believe. The attacks upon our children, our faith, and our God will grow fiercer. We must know what we believe, why we believe, and be able to defend it. The word apologetics comes from the word “apologia” means “to make a defense.” If we are to quell the tidal wave of naturalism and anti-God philosophies that are destroying the faith of our youth and our churches, we must arm ourselves with the weapons of this warfare—the weapon of truth.
The apostle Peter urges us to be prepared to defend our belief. He states, “but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15). Louis Markos writes that we are to present, “boldly but not harshly—a defense of Christianity that squares with reason, logic, and human experience.” (Louis Markos, Apologetics for the 21st Century, Crossway, Wheaton, Illinois, 2010, p. 17).

Although apologetics alone can't save anyone, it can help prepare the soil of the heart so that when the seed of God's Word is sown, it is much more likely to take root and prepare fruit.
