8 Week DVD “Introduction to Apologetics” Study
(Biblical & Creation Apologetics)
Definition of Apologetics
- Apologetics is the branch of Christian theology which attempts to give a rational defense of the Christian faith.
- Apologetics is giving a reason for why you believe what you believe.
- The English word “apologetics” comes from the Greek word apologia which means “to give a reason or defense” as in 1 Pet. 3:15
Introductory Comments: “Why we can believe Gods’ Word beginning with Genesis”
- The BIBLE represents a FAITH that FITS the FACTS
- Interpretation of scientific evidence is biased by a belief in GOD or by a belief there is no GOD
- Evolution is a theory based on assumptions, which despite all the claims of scientific support, does not fit the observable evidence.
- Much of the world’s elite institutions expect people to believe that the theory of evolution explains the universe and origins of life on earth. Our public education system excludes the teaching of any theory which challenges the principal assumptions of evolution theory based on the creation model. This is indoctrination, not education.
- If you choose to believe in GOD and are wrong, then you are no worse off than if you chose not to believe in God. Whereas if you choose not to believe in GOD, and are wrong, you may just lose everything.
