Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries — Your resource for Christian apologetics.
The most important reason to do apologetics is that God told us to do so!
God calls us to be “prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks” (1 Peter 3:15).
We are to “destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God” (2 Corinthians 10:5).
We must “contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3).
The apostle Paul set an example for us in “the defense and confirmation of the gospel” (Philippians 1:7).
Apollos set another example, as he “powerfully refuted the Jews in public, showing by the Scriptures that the Christ was Jesus” (Acts 18:28).
