But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Southern Baptist Theological Seminary - Apologetic Report

I did not grow up going to church every week. My parents did not have family worship every evening, or ever that I recall. No adult that I was around on a regular basis read their Bible conspicuously, but even as a kid I knew that my grandmother (“Mamaw” to us) did.

In evangelical debates over women in ministry, two biblical texts have always stood as an obvious obstacle to the egalitarian view:

But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. (1 Timothy 2:12)

The women are to keep silent in the churches; for they are...

Why did you decide the Seminary Track was right for you?

Choosing the Seminary Track was one of the easiest decisions of my life. I originally was discouraged because I felt called to go to seminary but had no earthly idea what to do for my undergrad. Along with that, I did not want to be in school...

Why was Jesus baptized?

Written by

If we were to compile a catalog of practices that are essential to the Christian faith, what would be included? Among other essentials, baptism would certainly need to be high on the list. Baptism is one of the means by which Jesus commissions his followers to make disciples (Matt. 28:18–20)....
