a-pol-o-get-ics   noun   1. Reasoned arguments or writings in justification of something,   typically a theory or religeous doctrine.  2. The branch of Theology that is concerned with defending or proving the truth of Christian doctrines.

A discussion about Christian Apologetics is certainly appropriate for a blog containing sketches on the road through life.  Believers today are constantly compelled to defend the relevance of their faith.  They are taken seriously only to the extent that they are able to articulate that defense with reason and clarity.

It is my sincere hope that this blog can be a resource to that end. Click on the Apologetics category for sketches in defence of The Way.

I am also constructing a list of the most typical questions or statements with which Christians are confronted. Some of the questions listed below are links themselves to a short sketch that addresses the question.  If you’re a believer and are confronted with ideas or questions that you don’t know how to address, feel free to use these in a discussion if they’re relevant as you respectfully and emphatically engage those that would challenge our faith.

Maybe you don’t believe in God or you believe there is a supreme being of some kind but so far, what you’ve heard from Christians you know has left you unimpressed.  I invite you to look over these posts as well.  It would be my hope you find something meaningful and relevant.

(If you have a question that you would like to see addressed, please submit it through a comment on this page )

Here are questions/statements  which you may want to explore – if so, I hope the discussion about each of them is helpful.

1. The church is full of hyporites.

2. How could a good God allow so much suffering in the world?

3. How can a loving God send people to Hell?

4. You cannot take the Bible literally.

5. I believe Jesus lived and was a good man but not the Messiah and not God.

6. What about other religions?

7. All the main religions are basically the same.

8.  The Bible is Sexist

9.  There is no evidence that God exists.
