Christian Apologetics QuotesGone are the days of assuming respectability within your communities because you’re a Christian and you “just want to love people.” This type of sentimentality masquerading as Christian faith will not stand the rigors of challenge by the ungodly.— Dr. Mike Spaulding (from, Has the Supreme Court Said?)

Christian Apologetics QuotesThe Bible teaches a dual, consistent revelation. Just as readers rightfully expect valid interpretation of Isaiah to be consistent with that of Mark, so too they can expect accurate interpretation of the facts of nature to be consistent with the message of Genesis and the rest of Scripture… When science appears to conflict with theology, we have no reason to reject either the facts of nature or the Bible’s words. Rather, we have reason to reexamine our interpretations, because the facts of nature and Scripture will always agree. — Hugh Ross

Christian Apologetics QuotesThe difference between faith and superstition is that the first uses reason to go as far as it can and then makes the jump; the second shuns reason entirely—which is why superstition is not the ally, but the enemy of true religion. — Sydney J. Harris

Christian Apologetics QuotesWhen I was first converted, I did not understand why abortion was a sin. I remember asking the women in church why Christians condemned abortion and celebrated capital punishment. I never heard a compelling argument. And then, one day during worship, we sang Psalm 102 and it hit me between the eyes. Here was the line of my undoing: “And peoples yet uncreated shall praise and magnify the LORD” (Ps. 102:18). I got it: abortion is not a right or an entitlement. Abortion steals praise from God by denying image-bearers the opportunity to live through and for him. Abortion despises and attacks and destroys the image of God. — Rosaria Butterfield (from, I Thought Planned Parenthood Protected Family Values)

Christian Apologetics QuotesIn case you haven’t been paying attention, young American believers are at a critical crossroad. Every study reveals the same disturbing attrition rate, and when questioned, young ex-Christians (and ex-theists) typically point to intellectual skepticism as a key contributor. If you’re a Christian parent, ask yourself a question: If your child came to you with serious scientific or philosophical doubts related to theism or Christianity, would you be ready (and able) to answer their objections or address their concerns? It’s time to get in the game and accept our parental responsibility in this important area. — J. Warner Wallace (from, an interview by Natasha Cain)

Christian Apologetics QuotesThe next Jonathan Edwards might be the man driving in front of you with the Darwin Fish bumper decal. The next Charles Wesley might be a misogynistic, profanity-spewing hip-hop artist right now. The next Charles Spurgeon might be managing an abortion clinic right now. The next Mother Teresa might be a heroin-addicted porn star right now. The next Augustine of Hippo might be a sexually promiscuous cult member right now, just like, come to think of it, the first Augustine of Hippo was. — Russell Moore (from, Onward: Engaging the Culture without Losing the Gospel)

Christian Apologetics QuotesDo we really need apologetics? A resounding yes! And what’s the most important reason? To strongly and competently defend and testify about the truth. ‘Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil.’ (Rom 14:16 ) Is there any greater evil than the continued and repeated denials of the very truths upon which the gospel is founded? — Duane Caldwell (from, The Best Reason for Apologetics)

Christian Apologetics QuotesThe idea of apologetics as a necessary part of one’s faithful walk is new to most Christians. They understand the need to worship God, to live a set apart life, and even the command to evangelize given by Jesus in the Great Commission. However, learning apologetics isn’t something preached from most pulpits today. Yet, in the first few centuries, apologetics and evangelism were inter-reliant. In fact, when you look at the writings of the early church fathers, you see how big a role apologetics played in their interaction with the outside world… Just as the Christians in the second century faces a culture hostile to the teachings of Christ, so Christians today find themselves in a post-Christian (and post-pagan) culture. Apologetics is therefore necessary to fulfill our faithfulness to The Great Commission. We see it in the examples of the Church Fathers. We would do well to follow them. — Lenny Esposito (from, You Can No Longer Separate Apologetics and Evangelism)

Christian Apologetics QuotesThe mocker will not have the last laugh. You see, dancing on the grave of an extinguished Christianity is farcical at best. Because the grave is empty. And the one who knows the way out of the grave sits in the heavens and laugh
— Ravi Zacharias (from, The Bird Still Sings: Why Christianity Cannot Be Silenced)

Christian Apologetics QuotesIt is not only reasonable to question when it comes to matters of faith, but also responsible. If we are not open to investigating dogmatic sacred or secular beliefs—whether they be our own or those of others—and placing them under scrutiny, then we are destined to be tossed about on the waves of popular opinion and become potential victims of those wolves in sheep’s clothing who prey on the ignorance of others. — Greg West (from, Christianity Without the Shell)
