Apologetics Awareness Week September 10-17

Apologetics Awareness Week is next week!  What is Apologetics Awareness Week?  The purpose of Apologetics Awareness Week – September 10-17, 2017 – is two fold.  First it is to motivate and inspire Christians to promote apologetics in their local area, online, and within their sphere of influence.  

Second it is to unite the apologetics community in promoting rational faith in the church, Christian schools, and throughout the culture. You can help with this effort by networking intentionally, particularly through social media during this week. And don’t forget the power of personal, face-to-face communication, especially with your church’s leadership.

Anti-Intellectualism in the American Church is Not a Spiritual Gift

trojan-horse  Over the past few months, even years, I have been wrestling with a gnawing issue on why the church is not amenable to apologetics.

Can You Test the Existence of God Like You Can Test Air?

The other day I received an email in our ministry inbox from an anti-theist. The reason I say anti-theist is because the person would be considered a lightweight in contrast to folks like Michael Ruse, John Gray, Alex Rosenberg, Kai Neilsen, or Brian Lieter.  
 
The purpose for emailing me was to take me on about something that I said in the Truth Matters program I was on back in March of this year. As it has been the case ever since I stopped allowing comments on my YouTube video, I get these humorous accusations from anti-theists telling me that I am dishonest and afraid of the dialogue.

The real reason is that I don’t like having to follow the venomous vitriolic rabbit trail seeking someone who wants to have a civil exchange. This is the reason why I have an email at the end of the videos, so as to give an opportunity for the viewer to contact us. By the way, I always welcome comments (so long as they abide by our comment policy) at the bottom or sending an email. I promise to keep it cordial.
