Evidential Apologetics: What is it?

The term "apologetics" comes from the Greek, apologia , which means "defense." Apologetics is the systematic study of how one can best defend one's beliefs. Christian apologetics, specifically, focuses on presenting the core tenets of the Christian faith so as to make a case for their truthfulness and answer objections raised by unbelievers. Simply put, Christian apologetics is offering a defense for what Christians believe.

How Can You Make a Career in Apologetics?

Part of the vision of our Biola M.A. Christian Apologetics program is to train apologists to be a resource for the local church. In fact, our dream is that churches would consider the need for a “Pastor or Apologetics” as important as a men’s ministry leader or a youth pastor. Until this dream becomes a reality, here’s a few ways to make a career in apologetics (If you think I have missed any, please let me know):

What Can Christians Learn from the Apostolic Fathers? Interview with Author Ken Berding

KEN BERDING: I’m so glad you’re reading the book! The Apostolic Fathers are a name given in the modern era to the earliest Christian writers who wrote just after the age of the apostles. Their writings span A.D. 95-160. They include 1 Clement, the letters of Ignatius, Polycarp’s Letter to the Philippians, The Didache, fragments from Papias, the Shepherd of Hermas, the Letter of Barnabas (not Paul’s co-worker), 2 Clement, Diognetus, and The Martyrdom of Polycarp. Why are they important? The reason they’re important is because of how early they were written. Some of these authors actually knew apostles or companions of apostles. If we could talk to them, they could answer many questions (and actually did answer a few of them in their writings!) that get asked about the apostolic age. They also help us observe early developments in Christian doctrine and church polity. Besides, they’re really interesting…for the most part…

Kicked Out of Church: How God Brought Me Home

I had been through difficult times before: the tragic loss of my father in childhood, the torturous cancer battle that took my mother’s life in my twenties, and the horrific fight of my firstborn against malignant brain cancer a decade earlier. But nothing hit me as hard as my son’s genetic disorder. It was a rare aging condition called Cockayne Syndrome. There is no treatment for CS. You watch your child slowly deteriorate and suffer horribly. I stopped praying the day we received the diagnosis, and I didn’t pray again for five years.

The ‘Prophets’ and ‘Apostles’ Leading the Quiet Revolution in American Religion

Many of these apostles run megachurches, including Bethel Church in Redding California, HRock Church in Pasadena, and the International House of Prayer (IHOP) in Kansas City. But their real power lies in their innovative approach to selling faith. They’ve combined multi-level marketing, Pentecostal signs and wonders, and post-millennial optimism to connect directly with millions of spiritual customers. That allows them to reap millions in donations, conference fees, and book and DVD sales. And because these INC apostles claim to get direction straight from God, they operate with almost no oversight.

Why Does God Allow Evil?: An Interview with Dr. Clay Jones

The problem of evil and suffering is one that has plagued many theologians. Much ink has been spilled over this question already and there does not seem to be a sign of stopping anytime soon. In the midst of this, a Christian Apologetics professor, Dr. Clay Jones from Biola University, is pitching in his two cents with his book, boldly entitled “Why Does God Allow Evil?: Compelling Answers for Life’s Toughest Questions.” Would you be interested in hearing from a man who has thought, spoken, and written about this issue for 23 years?

Philippians 1:6: God Finishes What He Begins

God didn’t get his people part way out of Egypt or halfway through the Red Sea. In this lab, Pastor John reminds us that our God completes what he begins.


Paul, one of the greatest followers of Jesus ever, was on trial in Rome, and not one person stepped forward to defend him. Not one! He was absolutely by himself. Nobody stepped forward to say, “This is a good guy. He’s alright.” Yet Paul did not say, “Those jerks — after all I’ve done for them all these years!” Instead, he said, “May it not be counted against them.” In other words, he was not going to let himself become bitter. Because bitterness always makes loneliness worse.

Do You Pray Like an Atheist?

Calling on the name of the Lord is no mere generic plea for divine aid. This is not groping for God as a distant deity. This is not even the admirable reverence of the ancient priest-king Melchizedek, righteous as he may have been, who blesses Abraham in the name of “God Most High” (Genesis 14:18–23), but does appear know God’s personal name, Yahweh (represented in our English translations by Lᴏʀᴅ with the small caps). And this emphatically is not the “unknown God” reverenced in Athens and referenced by Paul in his address at the Areopagus. “What you worship as unknown , this I proclaim to you” (Acts 17:23).

The No. 1 Reason Churches End Up in Court Is No Longer Child Abuse

The CLT analysis—a review of state appellate and federal court rulings—found that 8.7 percent of church court cases last year addressed property related-issues, down from 10.2 percent in 2015. However, property cases still ranked as the new No. 1 reason because child sex abuse fell even more, down to 8.3 percent in 2016 from 11.7 percent in 2015.

But Jesus Never CLAIMED to be God? Actually, He Did—3 Times

Reading with modern eyes, it looks as if Jesus is simply claiming to be a "son of man"—not God Himself. But when set within its cultural and biblical context, Jesus was making a reference to a prophecy in the book of Daniel. This not only identified Him as the "Son of Man" predicted in chapter 7, but the eternal Sovereign Lord of all, who will return to judge the very court in which He now stood trial. When seen in the light of Psalm 110, Jesus was claiming to sit on the very throne of Israel's God.

The Pay Gap Is Worse for Pastor-Moms

Co-pastoring can give married women an immediate comparison for fair wages; she and husband Tommy cut the paycheck right down the middle, while she earns additional pay for also serving as the worship pastor. (This setup prevents one scenario the researchers described: Some churches view pastors’ wives as a benefit since they may be expected to volunteer or do unpaid work, whereas pastors’ husbands—especially when they work full-time outside the church—aren’t viewed as offering the same perk.)

Scripture for Life: The Sufficiency of Scripture by Stephen Nichols | August 3, 2017

The concept that an ancient book might offer sufficiency for life rubs against the grain of our postmodern culture. How can one source possess all the answers for life, let alone an archaic, outdated text? Behind this question lies the desire for the individual to choose what is sufficient, a grasp for autonomy that began with our first parents in the garden of Eden. They sought to cast off the yoke of the Lord, which they considered heavy and unnecessary, and instead they exalted themselves to the place of their Creator, arbiters of sufficiency. This sin remains alive today, compelling Christians who have tasted the streams of everlasting life flowing from our Savior to proclaim the truth that life and its rule may only be found in Christ and His Word.

Refuting Aslan's 'Zealot' at the Ground Level

  is yet another modern reconstruction of Jesus. It is not fresh and new, as it claims to be, but reflects longstanding debate. That debate is between those skeptical about the Gospels' portraits of Jesus and those who see them as complementary pictures of Jesus as he was and is. … It's not at all clear, however, that Aslan understands the history of Jesus better than the Gospel writers did. … There are good reasons to suspect the Jesus of history was directly responsible for being confessed as Christ. It was zeal for Jesus' person that drove the earliest disciples to preach him as unique. This is something the disciples not only thought about but also experienced—even to the point of being willing to die for what they knew to be true. Zeal for Jesus arose from his own claims about what God was accomplishing through him (Darrell Bock).

The Death of God and the Death of Christ | Reasonable Faith

You can probably see now where I'm headed. Christ could not die with respect to his divine nature but he could die with respect to his human nature. What is human death? It is the separation of the soul from the body when the body ceases to be a living organism. The soul survives the body and will someday be re-united with it in a resurrected form. That's what happened to Christ. His soul was separated from his body and his body ceased to be alive. He became temporarily a disembodied person. On the third day God raised him from the dead in a transformed body.

The Gospel Trilemma

When discussing the Gospels with skeptics, many times skeptics will bounce back and forth between different positions of skepticism (one minute they accuse the gospel writers of collusion, the next minute they say the Gospels are full of contradictions, and the next minute they say the text is corrupted, i.e., we have no idea what the original writers wrote).  In short, the skeptic can't get the reason for his skepticism straight; as a result, it's difficult for the conversation to gain traction.  To prevent them from these schizophrenic chameleon tactics, the following trilemma will force them to take a position rather than just play the role of mocker and heckler. ​ Either the gospel writers were delusional men who coincidentally all experienced the same delusion, were unscrupulous opportunists who were trying to spread lies (for reasons beyond historical and rational comprehension),  or men of integrity committed to the truth.  In other words, the driving force behind the gospel accounts was one of the following:

Why Saint Dawkins is good news for Christianity

When The God Delusion first came out, I had a vague belief in God and warm feelings towards Jesus, though I thought Christianity was utterly wrong; a judgement I had made based on very little information. My first degree was in molecular biology, a subject similar to Dawkins’ own scientific field. But unlike Dawkins, I didn’t see science as a problem concerning the issue of God’s existence. In fact, at the end of my degree, I remember thinking that I was more certain there was a God than when I started! However, it didn’t seem to be an issue of great importance; at least, I didn’t spend much time thinking about it. This seemed to be the view of much of the population.

Case-Making 101: The Christian Worldview and the problem of doubt, evil and suffering

What do you do when you have questions and doubts about God or your faith? Questions can be good if it moves us forward to finding answers. I had a lot of questions about Christianity and I did not do anything about that for years except to become a doubtful skeptic. Doubt because of unanswered questions can be a terrible thing if it causes us to settle into apathy or worse.

A Small Big Universe

The universe is unfathomably large. Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is made of around 200,000,000,000 stars and there are about 200,000,000,000 galaxies in the visible universe. The Milky Way galaxy is about 100,000 light years across, which is  9.5 × 10 17 km (6 × 10 17 miles). (A light year is the distance light travels in a year which is 9,500,000,000,000 km or 6,000,000,000,000 miles.) We can see galaxies that are so far away it has taken about 13 billion years for their light to reach us.  Since the universe is expanding, those galaxies have continued to recede away from us during the time it took their light to reach us. So the present size of the known universe is approximately 93,000,000,000 light years across in all directions. That is, the universe we can see is now a sphere about 9 × 10 23 km (6 × 10 23 miles) in diameter. We talk about the "visible" or "known" universe because that is all of the universe we can see. We have no idea how large the universe is beyond that. It is impossible to understand how big this is. Consider something much smaller, the distance to the nearest star which is about 4.

Cultural tolerance is ultimately unlivable

Cultural tolerance is ultimately unlivable. We really can’t tolerate all behaviors, and a society that shuts down vibrant disagreement and robust debate, as proponents of cultural tolerance want to do, will ultimately crumble. When people claim to be tolerant, I like to ask them if they are willing to tolerate the intolerant? Of course, if they are truly tolerant, then they will have to say yes. And if they say no, then it reveals the inconsistency of their worldview.

Defending the Faith: Jay Watts - Birmingham Christian Family Magazine

Having come from an atheist background, Watts understands the struggles that many non-Christians have with faith. “I didn’t grow up a Christian. My path to the Gospel wasn’t set out for me in church youth group or family Bible study. I wandered toward faith following a trail of bread crumbs left for me through reasonable answers to my questions that ultimately guided me to the cross. There is no doubt that this impacts my approach to my job, which centers around addressing the value of human life and the general Christian worldview,” explains Watts, adding, “I see apologetics as both defensive and proactive. In one sense, we are equipped to answer questions that might safeguard against a corrosive form of skepticism. In another, we are able to actively identify and confront injustice in the world around us in a gracious and impacting manner. That is, in a broad sense, what my talks will address.” Watts is a hard-hitting speaker, while at the same time, is winsome and approachable. His specialty is engaging students and young adults with the consequences of their worldview.
