10 Apologetics Quotes to Start the New Year

Apologetics QuotesI read Genesis 1 for the first time when I was seventeen, in the midst of a personal study of the holy books undergirding the world’s major religions. While I began with some degree of certainty that God exists—because of the way the universe began and was structured—I assumed all the holy books would prove to be humanly crafted frauds. My aim was to confirm this belief by identifying provable errors and contradictions within those books. The task seemed relatively easy—until I came up against the Bible. – Dr. Hugh Ross

Apologetics QuotesI am not a Christian because God changed my life; I am a Christian because of my convictions about who Jesus Christ is. – Josh McDowell

Apologetics QuotesRichard Dawkins and the New Atheists present a major challenge to the church. But like all the great controversies before it, the church has been given an opportunity to retool, regroup, and reclaim the truth of the gospel, speaking it into the void. ‘There is nothing new under the sun,’ wrote the Preacher. Indeed. If we scratch the surface we will find the New Atheists are very much like the old atheists. – Larry Taunton

Apologetics QuotesA faith without some doubts is like a human body without antibodies in it. People who blithely go through life too busy or indifferent to ask hard questions about why they believe as they do will find themselves defenseless against either the experience of tragedy or the probing questions of a smart skeptic. – Tim Keller

Apologetics QuotesDoubt, like faith, has to be learned. It is a skill. But the curious thing about skepticism is that its adherents, ancient and modern, have so often been proselytizers. In reading them, I’ve often wanted to ask: ‘Why do you care?’ Their skepticism offers no good answer to that question. — Mark Lilla

Apologetics QuotesCommon sense is the most fairly distributed thing in the world, for each one thinks he is so well-endowed with it that even those who are hardest to satisfy in all other matters are not in the habit of desiring more of it than they already have. – René Descartes

Apologetics QuotesTo one who has faith [in Christ], no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible. – Thomas Aquinas

Apologetics QuotesEvery believer needs to have reasons for their faith that they can articulate and commend, and at least defend for their own sake when challenges arise. In this sense every local church congregation should be saturated with apologists. – Peter Grice

Apologetics QuotesIn scientific work, those who refuse to go beyond fact rarely get as far as fact.  -Thomas Huxley

Apologetics QuotesThe fact that Jesus called the Holy Spirit ‘the Spirit of truth,’ and gave such a prominent place to his teaching ministry, is of great importance in the anti-intellectual cultures of the world. I do not hesitate to say that anti-intellectualism and the fullness of the Spirit are mutually incompatible, because the Spirit with whom we claim to be filled or desire to be filled is the Spirit of truth. In consequence where the Holy Spirit is free to work, truth matters. – John Stott
