The Reason

My name is Glenn Jones.

In May of 2004, I graduated from college in the field of Engineering with a minor in Mathematics. In May of 2010, I graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary (Atlanta Campus) with a Master of Arts in Religion.

(Updated May 2016) I have run this web site in some form now for over a decade. Given all the changes that have occurred with technology and mobile phones, this web site needed a new launch and a refresh on all its content. I still hope to make this site a solid place for Christians to become better defenders of the Christian Faith and to provide new content that I’ve never considered placing on the web site before today.

As I have always stated 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 a defense or justification provided 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 the King of the Earth, who died and rose again from the dead.

The primary passage of scripture in which we find this exhortation to give a defense of our Christian Faith is 1 Peter 3:15-17, which states:

“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.”

More than any thing, we must know that it is better to suffer as a Christian, than to feel more at ease doing evil. The Lord Jesus has promised that those who trust and obey Him will live with God forever and inherit a New Heavens and a New Earth one day that this is greater than anything we could imagine. Therefore, we must do what is right in the eyes of God, no matter what the consequences may be, and we must rely on God’s Spirit to carry us through the difficult seasons of this present life.

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.
