Why We Believe

The Tragedy of the Dumb Church

By
Robin Schumacher

much of the Church today is dumb. Don’t misunderstand me, I mean no disrespect when I use the term ‘dumb’. What I mean is that the Church is dumb in that they aren’t well educated in what they believe, fail miserably in fulfilling 1 Peter 3:15 that says all Christians should be prepared to give a reason for why they believe, and are woefully unable to handle any challenge to Christianity that comes from unbelievers or the cults.

5 Reasons Christians Should Study Apologetics

By
David Wilber

The reason most believers neglect apologetics, however, is not that they believe it to be unprofitable. They neglect it simply because it isn’t emphasized in their congregations for one reason or another.

Three Ways to Teach Your Kids Apologetics (Without Them Realizing It)

By
Paul M. Gould

"As parents, we want our kids to grow up in a world where belief in God is viewed as reasonable and desirable. Unfortunately, there are loud voices — Internet atheists, new atheists — who think belief in God is on the same level as belief in fairies, leprechauns, and flying spaghetti monsters. And there are other voices — fideists, anti-intellectualists, naïve believers — who equate the evidence for God with the evidence for a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Both views are extreme, and both are mistaken."

The Story of Reality: How the World Began, How It Ends, and Everything Important that Happens in Between

By
Greg Koukl

Christianity is a true story of how the world began, why the world is the way it is, what role humans play in the drama, and how all the plot-lines of the story are resolved in the end. If you are already a Christian, do you know and understand the biblical story? And for those still seeking answers to the questions of life, this is an invitation to hear a story that explains the world in a way nothing else will.
