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

My great regret: I didn’t discover apologetics until I was in my early twenties.

Questions are a legitimate way to get people to think. But if questions subtly create confusion, fallacy, or error, they only serve to conceal the truth rather than reveal the truth.  Atheist Forum provides three questions designed to raise doubt about the existence of God. But, to get the...

The Bible says, “There is no God.” If that doesn’t sound right to you, it’s because I’ve cited Psalm 14:1 out of context and violated a basic, but critical, rule of interpretation. This example highlights why every believer should study how to interpret the Bible....
