Imagine an army that never trained and was poorly equipped. Without training, the soldiers would not know how to use the weapons in their possession  Such an army would be decimated by the enemy.

Or, imagine a football team whose training table consisted entirely of Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and other junk food. Instead of lifting weights they play video games. Instead of watching game film, they watch soap operas. This is not a team that will gain anything except a larger waist.

In the same way, for the Church to accomplish her mission, we need to train our people to understand and defend their faith. We need to be able to explain to our children not only what we believe but on what basis we believe it. – Mark McIntyre (from, Churches for Apologetics – Please sign the petition)
