"People are afraid of apologetics because if you truly persist and search with an open mind, you will eventually learn that God probably does not exist. That's what happened to me :)"

@Malcom:

Keep searching. There's more to the universe than nothing.

People are afraid of apologetics because if you truly persist and search with an open mind, you will eventually learn that God probably does not exist. That's what happened to me :)

In the book "The Unexpected Adventure", Lee Strobel relates how a young man in the audience (where Lee was giving a talk) asked a question about Christianity having originated from eastern fertility cults. After Lee gave an explanation of why this can't be so - based on the fact that Christianity started in a Jewish, mono-theistic setting which is far removed from any fertility cults, the young man sat down, saying half to himself, half to Lee : "That was the last barrier between me and Jesus".

Souls like this are being saved thanks to apologetics.

But yes - one can become so preoccupied with apologetics that you loose focus of your relationship with Jesus and living out your religion.

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

For we did not follow cleverly contrived myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; instead, we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 2 Peter 1:16
