APOLOGETICS

The term “apologetics” doesn’t mean apologizing or saying “sorry” for being a Christian. It comes from the Greek word “apologia” meaning “defense”. While Christian apologetics is often viewed as an evangelistic tool for converting non-believers, its primary effect is on the individual believer. When a believer understands not only what they believe but why they should believe it, they find that their faith can actually “hold water” during times of testing.
