Christian Apologetics

Making a case for why Christianity is true and then defending that truth against objections others may have

Moral Argument

The moral argument begins with the fact that all people recognize some moral code within us; some things are right, and some are wrong. Whenever we argue over right and wrong, we appeal to a higher law that we assume everyone is aware of, holds to, and is not free to change arbitrarily. Right and wrong imply a higher standard or rule, and a law requires a lawgiver.

Historical Argument

Historical apologetics seeks to provide evidence for the validity of Christianity from the substantial and provable facts of the Christian message. In historical apologetics, scripture can be compared to facts external to the Biblical record for validity. The trustworthiness of the New Testament, eyewitness accounts, and Christianity’s rise under horrendous persecution is well documented in the historical record.

Design Argument

Darwinists claim that life sprung into existence after given enough time, matter, and chance. But a single cell requires hundreds of thousands of bits of information precisely sequenced in its DNA! Those who deny an Intelligent Designer have the impossible task of explaining how life could possibly arise from an unguided, blind process. The DNA in one human cell holds the information equivalent of roughly 8000 books! No one can give an example of information arising from unguided processes.

Science & Faith

Are science and the Christian faith at war? They are if you believe Bill Nye “The Science Guy,” Neil deGrasse Tyson, Stephen Hawking, and Carl Sagan. They (and many others) have all implied that science and religion are at war, and religion is anti-science. These stories only serve to reinforce the view that Christianity is nothing more than a manufactured religion with the less-educated following a God who does not exist, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Worldview/Politics

Everyone’s worldview plays a central role in how we think about the world, other countries, people, and ourselves. Worldviews shape how we think about social issues such as abortion, euthanasia, pornography, same-sex marriage, transgender rights, embryonic research, genetic enhancement, the death penalty, and gun control, to name just a few. Christians view the world, the various values, conflicting cultures, and countries, see the destructive direction we are all heading.

Cosmological Argument

One of the most startling developments of modern science is the strong evidence that the universe is not eternal in the past but had an absolute beginning about 13 billion years ago in a cataclysmic event known as the Big Bang. Simply put, the Cosmological Argument goes like this. 

  1. Whatever begins to exist has a cause.
  2. The universe began to exist.
  3. Therefore, the universe had a cause, i.e., God.

Personal Experience

One way that we can know that God exists is through the personal experience we have with Him. Few of us have the dramatic conversion that Paul experienced, but some have. Nevertheless, a subjective experience, whether a dramatic one-time event or undergone over time, is evidence of his reality, and the stories behind them can be powerful.
