New Age Beliefs Are Common in America—and in Our Churches

Summary or Keywords

Pastors will need to play a role in shoring up…those they are called to shepherd. But there is another group that can help take some of the weight off our already overly burdened ministers: lay apologists. Lay apologists are Christians not already in full-time or paid ministry, but have the interest and equipping to carry out the task of apologetics. As a former lay apologist myself, I know how capable they are of carrying out this task. Unfortunately, too many of them are wasting their talents in endless debates with internet-based atheists. If you’re a lay apologist, I hope you’ll heed this call: This church needs your skills and training.
