Uploaded: 4 years ago
23 mins 32 sec
Christianity has defended its claims against criticisms for more than 2000 years. And there are better reasons for believing in Christianity than any other belief system. This podcast introduces apologetics or pre-evangelism, the discipline that rationally defends Christianity against critics and provides reasons to place your faith in it.
Have you ever faced challenging questions about Christianity? Have others wanted to know why you believe Christianity is the only true religion? Apologetics or pre-evangelism removes obstacles for people struggling with questions about Christianity. It answers the hard questions and provides reasonable answers to why Christianity is true and other worldviews are not. It is not the same as evangelism, although the two often work together. This episode introduces apologetics and discusses its relationship to evangelism.
