Helpful Resources for Defending Christianity
“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." 1 Peter 3:15
As the world grows more secular, anti-Christ and Atheistic, it's important that we are equipped to defend our faith, and in turn teach our children. According to Ephesian 6: 13-17, God has gifted us with His Armor to fight against the forces of darkness plaguing our world: Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helment of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
God has called various believers within the body of Christ to become Christian Apologists to help you learn how to defend your faith, and teach your children to do the same. Recent studies have shown that 70-75% of Christian youth leave the church after high school (see research from the Pew Research Center and USA Today). Not only are we being bombarding with atheistic objections, but our children are being challenged the moment they walk into a college classroom. To help you combat these statistics, and objections to Christianity, we've compiled a list of *Christian Apologist Resources to explore:
