The Reason

(Updated February 2019) This web site has been managed in some form now for almost two decade. Given all the changes that have occurred with technology and mobile phones, a few years ago it got a new launch and a refresh on all its content. This site exists to create a solid place for Christians to become better defenders of the Christian Faith and to provide new content that has never been offered.

For those who might be new to this aspect of the Christian worldview, the word ‘Apologetics’ derives from the Greek word ‘apologia.’ It is basically defined as giving a defense or justification for a truth claim. In Christian terms, it is about the defense and justification of the truth of the Christian Faith: The Good News about Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah of Israel and King of the World, who died and rose again from the dead.

The primary passage of scripture in which we find this exhortation is 1 Peter 3:15-17 (NIV’84):

But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. It is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.

Basic faithfulness teaches us to know that it is better to suffer as a Christian, rather than repay evil with evil. Jesus has guaranteed that his people will dwell with God forever in a New Heavens and a New Earth and we have received the down payment of that promise by the indwelling Holy Spirit. Therefore, we can and should do good no matter what the consequences may be, trusting that God’s Spirit will carry us through the difficult seasons of this present life and lead us safely into the next.

The ministry Statement of Faith is found in the Four Ecumenical Creeds. These are excellent summaries of the key Christian doctrines and should be learned by all Christians everywhere.

May God bless and keep you in His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.
